Kids Get $1 Million For Being Kicked Out of School Over False Blackface Accusation


It was a simple violation of free speech and wrongfully cancelled contracts.

And open and shut case.

But here we are, 3 years later and the case if finally settled. Sort of.

Santa Clara County jury has spoken in favor of two former students who took legal action against a Catholic high school in Mountain View.

They claimed they were wrongly forced out over a ‘blackface’ photo but it was teens using acne medication masks.

(By the way, I hope the police are hunting down this woman holding her hate cream. This hate crime needs the full force of the law!)

And so the jury ruled in favor of the plaintiffs on two claims: breach of oral contract and lack of due process.

No due process?

Is preceived ‘hate crime’ the unspeakable crime that demands immediate condemnation?

However, the plaintiffs did not succeed on three other claims involving breach of contract, defamation, and a violation of free speech.

So these kids weren’t defamed?

And of course the judge ignored the violation of free speech claim.

The legal battle continues though.

The school is trying to appeal it. They want their money, the kids be damned!

Also, remind me again where it says having black paint on your face is a illegal and a crime?

It’s not like the Wayan brothers did a movie wearing whiteface while mocking white females. That would be hypocritical.

In clown world, only white paint is allowed.

SF Chronicle reports:

A Santa Clara County jury has awarded $1 million and tuition reimbursement to two former students who sued an elite Catholic high school in Mountain View, saying administrators forced them out over an alleged blackface photo that actually showed teens masked in acne medication.

The jury sided with the plaintiffs on two claims against Saint Francis High School, for breach of oral contract and lack of due process, said Frank Hughes, the father of one of the students. However, Hughes said, he and the other plaintiffs lost on three other claims alleging breach of contract, defamation and a violation of free speech.

“Our primary goal was to clear (our clients’) names,” the plaintiffs’ attorney, Krista Baughman, said in an interview after the jury award, which was handed down Monday. “It was quite clear the jury believed these were innocent face masks. They are young kids, their internet trail is going to haunt them for the next 60 years. Now they don’t have to worry about that.”

School officials emphasized in a statement that the jury had rejected the plaintiffs’ two primary legal claims of defamation and breach of contract, and found that the administration did not interfere with the students’ free-speech rights.

Representatives of Saint Francis said they “respectfully disagree with the jury’s conclusion as to the lesser claim regarding the fairness of our disciplinary review process,” the statement read, adding that the school is “exploring legal options,” including an appeal.

The former students and their parents initially sought $20 million when they sued Saint Francis in 2020, after a photo surfaced of the two boys and another friend wearing what they said were acne treatment masks.

In August 2017, a boy identified as A.H. in the lawsuit donned a green mask that his mother had purchased, intended to cure severe acne. He snapped a bathroom selfie with another boy in a white acne mask. The following day A.H., a friend referred to as H.H., and a third boy, Minor III, rubbed green medication on their faces in solidarity and took a picture of themselves, according to the lawsuit. Court exhibits show a photo of three shirtless boys, one flashing rock ’n’ roll horns.

They sure love to go after kids and attack perceived blackface, no matter what.

Remember this one:

Oh wait, liberals did make a whiteface movie.

And of course anti-White Disney now has it available to watch on their app.

Since Hollywood is all about remakes and race swapping, let’s see them do a Black Chicks film with blackface.

Think that’s the only time Hollywood did that?

It’s not about “Well, I’m not offended by whiteface.”

It’s a matter of principle. The idea that ‘Only we can do it but YOU CAN’T’ is a slippery slope and is literally the mindset of supremacy and superiority.

Well, we’ll always have Soul Man (1986).

An 80’s comedy that calls out the unfairness of Affirmative Action, where the main character can only get a free ride into college if he’s black.
