St. Albans School, a prestigious institution for boys in Washington, is considering a policy of punishing speech by its impact, not its intent. (EQRoy / Shutterstock) Students at a private school in the nation’s capital could face expulsion for “misplaced humor,” according to the school’s draft “anti-bias” policy obtained by The Washington Free Beacon.
St. Albans, an all-boys school in Washington, is considering adopting a policy regarding the “impact of hate speech, rather than the intent of those perpetrating it, that is of utmost importance,” the draft policy states, The Washington Free Beacon reported .
Students could be expelled “even in the case of a single expression, act, or gesture,” which includes “misplaced humor,” that “should be reported immediately to the student’s adviser.”
The policy also outlines the expectation that students, teachers or parents who witness or have knowledge of “an incident of hate speech, will report the incident to the appropriate individual,” and it encourages such reporting because nobody will be punished for “a good faith report,” according to the policy, the Free Beacon reported.
It is not clear if the policy is still subject to revision at the school, where tuition costs run more than $50,000 a year for day school and boarding school costs more than $70.000.
In July 2020, St. Albans released an update on its “ongoing work” to put the school “on a path towards greater justice, equity, and inclusion: to become more fully a sacred space dedicated to the dignity and humanity of every person as a child of God,” as a “response to the tragic killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery and the nation’s continued reckoning with racial injustice.”
Floyd’s death while in police custody in Minneapolis in May 2020 set off nationwide rioting. He’d been arrested on suspicion of passing a counterfeit $20 bill.
Now-former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of murder in the case and sentenced to more than 22 years in prison.
Taylor was killed in a drug raid in Louisville, Kentucky, in March 2020 after her boyfriend fired in police and they returned fire, striking Taylor.One officer was charged with […]
One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
