So yestersay my son tells me that his teacher told the class that a foreigner probably set off those bombs at the Boston marathon because they are jealous of Americans! I was shocked that a teacher could be that ignorant and tell a group of 7yr olds something so crazy. But I told my son that AMERICANS do stupid stuff in their own country too, like the tragedy in Newtown and the guy that shot up that movie theater. I am upset that she would say something like that to 1st graders because children are so impressionable and that just sets the stage for prejudices and racism. What would yall do if your kid came and told you that?
