Lumpkin County Georgia High School Teacher Catherine Ariemma Suspended After Letting Four Students Wear Klan Robes For Historical Reenactment

George Orwell's 1984 has come to life; politically-incorrect history is being flushed down the memory hole. Apparently it is no longer permissible to portray history accurately in an American high school, if a Black person or other minority pet decides he is upset by it. A history teacher in Dahlonega, Georgia has been suspended with pay and may be fired for allowing four students to wear Klan robes in a historical reenactment. Full stories from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, AccessNorthGa, WXIA Channel 11, and WSB Channel 2. Reaction posted on Stormfront.

Catherine Ariemma (pictured at left), a five-year veteran with Lumpkin County High School, teaches an advanced placement history class. Her students were preparing to do a film on the history of racism in the United States, and were filming reenactments of various historical periods. Four of the students donned Klan outfits. Students from other classrooms saw them as they walked through a hallway on Thursday May 20th, 2010 while wearing the costumes to an outdoor shoot. The parents of an Black child complained; WSB offers more details.

"I was sitting in the lunchroom and my little cousin taps me on the shoulder -- he's also African-American -- and he was scared," student Cody Rider told WSB-TV's Ryan Young. "There was fear in his eyes. I was like, 'What is it? I looked up and they just walked through the lunchroom in white sheets. So, I mean me, I got mad and stood up and I tried to go handle it." Although teachers quickly calmed things down in the lunchroom, but what they said offered little comfort to Rider. "They came up to me and said it was for a class project," he said. "I was like, 'Why would a class project involve them walking through the hallway in white sheets?' I mean, I just don't understand." According to AccessNorthGa, the students did not come to school wearing the robes, but donned them prior to heading to the filming area. But in so doing, the students needed to walk through the school's public areas.

Lumpkin County School Superintendent Dewey Moye, who is white, found out about it and promptly launched a witch hunt against Ariemma, despite the fact that he admits Ariemma's record is "outstanding". But Moye said he could not ignore what she did, claiming that Ariemma "used extremely poor judgment", and said he found it personally offensive. So he placed her on leave with pay pending the outcome of an investigation, while the school system's attorney will interview the children involved to determine exactly what happened.

A white boss oppressing a White employee for sinning against political correctness. Although we in the White Nationalist community have legitimate issues with non-Whites and Jews, John Taylor Bowles recently suggested that we need to clean up our own house as well, perhaps first. Dewey Moye may be an example of the housecleaning we must consider.

Teachers - just bricks in the wall.

Taylor Bowles and the ANP are right, until we clean up our own act, we are hypocrites pointing the finger at non-Whites, for what we tend to overlook in our own ranks!
