Regarding the Sept. 7 news article “ Assistant principal at Chapel Hill High removed”: A 16-year-old attending summer school at Chapel Hill High school passes out and the assistant principal arranges for a trip to the hospital. Sounds pretty reasonable and responsible to me. Short of riding in the ambulance (not allowed), I fail to see how Julie Hennis failed in any way to be less than a caring adult faced with a difficult situation.
Enter the NAACP (wonder how it got involved?) and the plot thickens. According to the interlopers, it seems that since the young man is black and Hennis is white, a grave wrong must have taken place.
Michelle Laws, a former Chapel Hill-Carrboro NAACP president, can smell a case of prejudicial behavior from anywhere! By yelling and screaming foul, the interlopers succeeded in having Hennis removed from her post as assistant principal. The only wrong here has been done to Hennis. It gets tiresome when the tail wags the dog.
Never miss a local story.
