Headline question. Did he actually mock the Native American activist, or not?
He says he didn't.
It seems like to me in the video he was in a stand off, with the smirk on his face he was trying to push buttons. the other kids thought it was funny. I don't believe much of this kids story.
Too difficult to leave a simple message/comment here. Third time I've tried. Instead of playing the victim, this kid should learn his lesson and apologize. His actions were the behavior of a racist bigot, and his mother's comments to the press were equally foul. Stop seeking sympathy for your horrible behavior and be a man.
Sorry but you said there were native Americans calling you crackers. Sorry dont believe it. This school has. a long reputation of putting out white entitled obnoxious young men. In fact student was accused of raping a women and school did nothing because he was a star football player. Well he raped again when he graduated and is now in jail. There is a picture being passed around where student are harrasing a black basketball player from another them and one dressing up 2ith a painted black face. This is in there own school gym. This is not the Catholic church environment I grew up in.
The poor ignorant kid is only practicing what he has been taught. Our history books should teach the truth about my European ancestors' genocidal conquest of the Americas. There were already people living here! We should fall on our knees & beg their descendants forgiveness.
