    For the record, my grandmother was born in another country and immigrated to the US after WWII and my father and uncle were both in the US Army during Vietnam, but were not sent to Vietnam. No teachers in my immediate family.

    My dad was drafted for Nam but failed the physical. One of my great grandfathers and great grandmother’s was born in Ireland, counties Mayo and Roscommon. I still have distant family over in Ireland and I’ve met them twice. I do not know if they are vaccinated.

    How many points do I get? 7?

    It's not about "points".

    It's about whether global warming has diminished your intelligence

    This teach my kids the history of people like you is what started the background of my family answer.

    Did Shooshmoo call you out? If not, it isn't your conversation.

    You just told us that we weren’t welcome in your conversation, and now you are mad that we’re not engaged in persuasive debate. Great chatting with you.

    District Calls Anniversary Photo of High School Principal and His Wife ‘Questionable'

    Colleyville Heritage High School Principal James Whitfield says he's fighting back against critics and asks the district to support him.

    A high school principal in Colleyville says his bosses ordered him to remove a photo of him embracing his wife from social media.

    Colleyville Heritage High School Principal James Whitfield has faced sharp criticism from some parents who are accusing him of teaching critical race theory.

    One of those parents complained about the photo and the district ordered Whitfield to take it down. He said the district wouldn't tell him why.

    It was supposed to be a celebration for Whitfield, who had just been named principal of Colleyville Heritage Middle School two years ago, and his family. But before he could pop open the champagne his boss called and asked him to check his email.
    He looked online and immediately saw a photo of him and his wife on the beach -- a photo shot by a professional photographer on their anniversary.
    "I look at the picture, and I look at the words above it, and it says, 'Is this the Dr. Whitfield we want leading our schools?' I showed it to my wife, who immediately begins to well up with tears," he said.
    Grapevine-Colleyville ISD issued the following statement Monday.

    "When a social media concern is brought to the attention of the district, we have a responsibility to review it. Some of the photos the district received contained poses that are questionable for an educator, especially a principal or administrator. It had absolutely nothing to do with race. As a new campus principal, we wanted to provide a smooth transition for Dr. Whitfield to Heritage Middle School, which is why we advised him of the concern and made a request for the photos to be taken down from Facebook."
    Some parents from Colleyville Heritage learned of the photo incident after a lengthy social media post Whitfield made over the weekend about the accusations he's faced and the pressure he and his family have been under, including the frustration over the district asking him to take down the photo.
    Junebug, jhmd, and other board conservatives, can you explain what conservatives find wrong with these photos of a man and his wife?

    I'm sure that the interracial aspect of their marriage had nothing to do with the complaints, in spite of the parents and school district claims to the contrary. Given that he's a principal I'd also like to know how he's teaching Critical Race Theory, as he probably isn't a classroom teacher. Even if he is still teaching a class or two I suspect that the parents accusing him of teaching CRT likely have no idea what it actually is, and that what they accuse him of doing isn't CRT.
