    I just hope the juveniles learned their lesson. And nothing like this happens again. LCPS has enough problems. Happy Women’s History Month Loudoun!

    Left unanswered is the race of the individuals responsible. Experience tells us that if they were white, we’d be hearing about it. When the Ashburn Colored School was vandalized, the media covered it as a racist hate crime and covered up the race of the perps–three of whom turned out to be minorities. When there was a “noose” in Bubba Wallace’s assigned garage at a race track, it was shouted to high heaven as racism–only for the FBI (yes, the FBI was called in!) to determine the garage pull was tied that way long before the race team was assigned the garage. Knowing the media will trumpet the alleged hate crime as evidence of racism, hoaxers know they can further divide us as a people with little effort. I have no idea if this was a hoax or not. Given the media’s history of covering these things, it is more likely that it was another attempt to make America look racist, and the media played right into it.
