Winnipeg Student Suspended for Burning Jewish Girl’s Hair with Lighter
Winnipeg police are currently investigating an incident at a Winnipeg high school involving a student with Nazi links who reportedly used a lighter to burn the hair of a female Jewish student.

The disturbing incident, which took place at Oak Park High School, in the quiet community of Charleswood, apparently also saw the 15-year-old boy make anti-Semitic slurs toward the 15-year-old girl.

The school became aware when the girl told a counsellor what happened three days later,

1. Yikes!
Wait, what does this have to do with the conflict between Israel and Palestine? Do all stories about Jews go here?

3. The original name was "Israel/Palestine/Skinheads"
Old habits die hard.

2. ....
You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!

~South Pacific, Rodgers & Hammerstein

7. Shameful act of a coward
Picking on a girl.

8. Doing it to a boy would have been no better.
Racist bullies are disgusting.
