Regarding the Sept. 7 news article “ Assistant principal at Chapel Hill High removed”: Racial issues are complex in America. Blacks clearly have more than enough reason to be suspicious of whites. Recently Julie Hennis has been on the receiving end of charges against her for delinquency as an administrator in the Chapel Hill school system.
Hennis, in her career as parent, teacher and administrator, has advocated fair play for all students under her care. Those now throwing rocks by trashing her character or attempting to transfer her to a new job are clearly not practicing fair play. School people and parents are in a big boat together, trying to make the world a better place through education. There are plenty of bigots outside the boat. Let’s spend our energy going after them while we support those who are spending their lives in long hours of care for our children.
Hennis is a dedicated professional who does not deserve quiet fellow administrators and school board members who support a transfer from her current job because of thoughtless charges, unless her transfer is one she seeks and is to any higher position that she has long deserved.
