Posted By:JoniTx, 12/1/2013 11:55:48 AM

An education official at a Texas high school is under fire after telling some female students they have been dressing like ‘hoes.’ According to KRIV Fox 26, School Support Officer Dr. Tameca Richardson made the remark to female students at Jack Yates High School in Houston during an assembly on campus. A spokesperson for the Houston Independent School District confirmed the language used by Richardson, the station reported. Some parents expressed anger over Richardson’s terminology, saying the Ph.D.-level educator should have used language that was less offensive. "That was out of line and she should be disciplined for that,"

So, your child comes to school dressed like a prostitute, gets callled out for it, and your upset at the TEACHER who said it?? Not your child for looking that way???

I have a feeling that "mom" dresses the same (or worse), and don´t like to be dissed.

Yates High School in Houston is all black. I would guess that Dr. Richardson is black also. She has guts to say what she said and is probably right on target. These days parents will blindly defend their children when they should be paying more attention them. If this educator were white this would be on the national news.

In today´s world, telling the truth will get you into deep trouble. Here is hoping that the school board backs up Ms. Richardson and tells the parents to wake up and the media to get lost.

The school has a dress code, she´s trying to enforce it. She got their attention. It´s a shame parents would allow their children to dress like hoe´s.

Here´s one of the problems with public education: an issue which should be handled by the parent and the teacher or the parent, the teacher and the principal gets kicked up to the district and then becomes a news story.

Sometimes I think the real purpose of public schools is to give the news media something to do.

Do ya´ll remember when Dubya made a speech about something, and he called out the ´liberals in Congress´ about it? He did not say one single name, yet all the usual suspects started screaming like a certain zoo exhibit.

This is that same reaction. This educator was totally over her target regarding her statement. Just look at the flack.

A local school district instituted a dress code this year. The outcry and complaints have gone on for months, but the district has held firm.

I have noticed the local Thrift Stores are awash in tiny, mini skirts that must have been discarded. Can ´t image they covered anything strategic. Unfortunate that modesty must be imposed by a "dress code".

Perhaps the students who who weren´t "dressed like hoes" were the ones who felt insulted by the comment? (After all the efforts they had made...)

Schools have every right to insist on modesty in dress standards. This particularly applies to women because women are known to use their bodies to sell themselves to men. Men tend to dress sloppy but women tend to dress to reveal. E

I remember back in high school in the late 70´s when the headmistress of the school would take a ruler and measure the length of the female students´ skirts to check that they weren´t too short. Many of the female students thought she was being unreasonable but, in retrospect, you have to admit that there is a logic in curtailing a woman´s natural tendency to reveal.

The solution, though the liberals would wail, is separation of the sexes, in high school, for education. Raging hormones cause the vast majority of discipline problems in HS.

Once again schools are being charged with civilizing students rather than spend that time and energy on EDUCATING them.

Honestly, if you want to know why schools are failing, look at who is raising the kids attending those schools. Does anyone really believe that a teacher or an administrator can make up for all that is missing from the home? If we´re lucky, we can catch that 1 or 2% that are hungry for something more than what they come from.

Meanwhile the animals pull everyone down, since we´re discouraged from suspending or expelling them.

Speaking truth comes with a cost.
on the other hand kids hate dictators almost as much as their parents do.
Try some reason too that a dictator cannot expect to clothe kids in a hot areas in heavy long skirts or pants and high neck tops with long sleeves.
One newly hired school principal from the cold north tried that in a winter time 90% area and was handed his hat because kids collapsed in a heap and returned to their so called skimpy attire.

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

Cornyn sent a letter to the attorney general on Wednesday in response to remarks he made in testimony before a House subcommittee earlier this month, which were first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Holder said his agency is “exploring” technology to make guns “more safe.” “By making them either through finger print identification, the gun talks to a bracelet or

An army of NYPD cops on Thursday evicted a homeless man from his Manhattan Bridge “home” — which was complete with a gas heater, hot sauce and beer. A dozen officers from both the 5th and 84th Precincts plus four Emergency Service Unit cops launched the raid about 9:50 a.m. A DOT worker on a ladder first used bolt cutters to remove a red bicycle lock on the wooden structure — which turned out to be fully insulated with Styrofoam and a large tarp. “Police department!

More recently, the Obama administration has touted its “pivot” to Asia. Supreme Allied Commander Europe Gen.

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said. Davis, of Fort Worth, will undergo the outpatient surgery at the Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute. Dr. Thomas Ellis will perform the
