Exclusive: Chapel Hill high school holds “die-In” with students and faculty [VIDEO]

You just never know what lessons your children will be taught when you send them off to public school each day.

One mother in Chapel Hill, NC was surprised to get a text message from her 15-year-old son saying “Mom, you would not believe what’s going on at school. They’re having a “die-in.”

The tenth-grader was heading to lunch at the cafeteria one day during the week of January 19th with two of his friends when students and teachers started lying down in the foyer. At first he thought it was some sort of drill, but then he saw signs saying, “I can’t breathe” and “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot.”

The teen’s mother told me her son felt if he didn’t participate, people might think he was racist – but having said that, his two friends were black and didn’t want to participate either, so they all went to play basketball instead.

The boy’s mother spoke to me on condition of anonymity. She’s a teacher herself – at a different school – but was still afraid of losing her job if she spoke out.

The teen’s mother felt parents should have been notified beforehand so they could have decided whether to have their children attend that day. She said the school has done that for other activities such as “Transgender Day” (WHAT?) when guest speakers were invited.

Two hours after the “die-in,” the school’s principal, Sulura Jackson, left a voicemail for parents, explaining that the protest had occurred and “the students’ voices were heard in a very peaceful manner.”

Principal Jackson does not specify what the voices were saying or to whom they were spoken, and considering it was apparently a silent protest, I’m not exactly sure how the voices were heard anyway.

The Chapel Hill student told his mother he didn’t know which particular class or teacher had organized the protest, but clearly it wasn’t spontaneous because signs had been prepared.

Principal Jackson did not respond to my email and phone requests for comment.

No surprise there.

Hat tip to Sean Hannity’s radio producer, Lauren Scirocco, for bringing this story to our attention.

The audio taped.voice was that of a black woman. That’s about all the sense I could make of it.

Keep up the insanity Ms. JACKSON! YOU NEED TO BE FIRED! AND NEVER BE ABLE TO STEP FOOT IN A NOT HER SCHOOL!!! SHAME ON HER!

Why?
seriously… why?
If the principal organized the protest, that would be unacceptable.
But if the students did it on their own and then the principal was just informing parents, that’s different

Hey Brenda, it’s high school, not college. Or did you even go to HS.

Rafael X …. Is here in a regular basis trolling and heckling anything Allen West has to say… Just another Obama ZOMBIE

Big league players don’t mind hecklers. Pee wee’s like Allen West have a problem with them.

Really? Have you been banned? You’re a pest at best boo-boo. You’re a clown.

You’re just a troll

Rafael X? . . . It is more like “Indoctrination instead of an education”. Ms. Jackson should be fired for allowing something like this during the School Day. This appears to be just out side of the School Office.

You’ll find that Rafael X is just a troll and will try to bring you down to his level of stupidity, then he’ll beat you with experience.

I imagine the school principal has better thing to do than answer that “editor-in-chief”. Like wash her hair or something.

Your right, her rights as a racist trumps all others rights. As do yours with Free speech. It has become only granted for the liberals, as part of the Political Correctness. If the Conservatives try to use free speech it is in violation of the hate laws for them to respond in kind.

Rafael X
Guest

Who said a school principal had to answer “pretend reporters”. Freedom of speech is also freedom to ignore BS.

David Gearhart
Guest

Rafael X, she doesn’t have to answer to the reporters. she should be arrested for violating the rights of her students. Not all of the students are as stupid as she is and they too have rights. She is supposed to be teaching the students ‘how to think’ not pushing her political agenda of racism telling them ‘what to think’.

Sounds like the principle has something to hide or is unable to defend their actions if they can’t speak about it publicly. Wouldn’t you think that is a fair assessment?

Rafael X
Guest

I think its empty speculation not based on any verifyable facts.

Lacy Blackburn

Do you ever go away? You’re nothing but a feeble minded HECKLER!

Doesn’t matter to this moron what it is about this ignorant troll is all about stirred the pot with black vs white issues. Even when it doesn’t have anything to do with race this useless Al Sharpton wanna be will try and make it up race. He has a anti white and anti Allen West blog

Brendan

If this was organized by the staff, it was inappropriate.
Teachers should NOT be forcing or pressuring students to be involved in specific extracurricular activism.
If this was organized by students, and some staff joined in, that’s another story.

David Gearhart
Guest

It doesn’t matter who organized it. It was illegal to be held in a public school. It was using tax payer money to promote a political agenda. Separating the students by racism. Proving the racism is an approb

Brendan
Guest

It absolutely matters who organized it.
…and students deciding to lay down for five minutes during lunch is not wasting your tax dollars

David Gearhart
Guest

Using the school for liberal propaganda one liner campaign slogans that are racist and and have been proven to be lies to make some of the students feel what, guilty for something that they were not a part of, of being white? Or was it to show that it is alright to violate the rights of others? That only the black lifes matters?

Brendan
Guest

You keep misreading what I wrote.
If this was organized by the staff, it was wrong.
If it was a student organized demonstration, that is different.

David Gearhart
Guest
Brendan, no it is not ok, in or on the school property, political protest and racism does not belong as schooling. All lives and everyones rights matter. We are all born equal and equal protection under the law as per our constitution. We are all Americans, the minority laws are in violation of our constitution. They make the majority 2nd class citizens without the protection of the laws. I am 50% minority and never claimed it. I found it to be an insult that allowances should be made for me due to my birth. It should be an insult to… Read more »

hahahaha…..amazing. Many cannot read well, if at all, little structure to their lives, if any, and they are doing mock die ends as a social statement. Might I suggest they, as “students” use their time to be “students.”

Rafael X
Guest

Do you know them personaly? Have you seen their transcripts? What makes you think they don’t study? Those who didn’t participate went to play basketball. I doubt they had class at time. Might I suggest you shut up about people`s kids, you don`t know them.

My response is a generalization based on experience of having 9 years of disciplined studies during my tenure as a student. 34 years as a teacher, so based on my experiences, I am allowed, through debate to create a conclusion based upon those factors. Good day!

Rafael X
Guest

Generalizations are not facts.

spent
Guest

Nor is your generalization about the consequences of a lack of understanding in relation to having enough experience to understand the concept of generalization(s) and the intent. Need to receive an education in critical thinking skills.

Rafael X
Guest

Again if you knew anything about critical thinking you would know that an “appeal to experience” is a logical fallacy. If that’s the kind of word salad you served your students for 34 years. No wonder most of them turned out ignorant.

spent
Guest

It is not a fallacy. And of course you just made a generalization about how they would turn out. This must be as a result of your own ignorance for the fallacy of your own statement reflects exactly what I mean. Might I suggest that you have too much lemon in your salad. You truly are ignorant based. Might I suggest you read the Critique of Pure Reason, and you will find the fallacy there with Kant. Enjoy your “intellectual?” pursuit. I am through for you would fail my “salad class.”

Oh, I know about that! I taught for 34 years, and have a pretty good idea about you, and kids, of course you being one yourself.

Rafael X

How old am I?

Should be old enough to know something, at least have a rationale concept of any statement you may make, youngster.

Celtic Crazy

So following a false narrative “hands up, don’t shoot” is being educated and informed?

Rafael X

Some think the prosecutor botched the case. It’s a matter of opinion.

Andy Martin

Get bent and take care of your own POS kid punk. Practice what you preach and mind your own business.

My grand children live in North Carolina, one came home to tell me that a Republicans are evil. Yet that Planned Parent hood was good. When they had a mock election the teacher told my grandson that he was stupid for not voting for Obama. So much for teaching the process of our governments elections, teach them liberal bias instead.

Celtic Crazy

Sometimes violence it’s the answer when it comes to dealing with the brain dead liberal logic. I would sort anyone out for talking to my child like that.
