    So I'm a 17 year old high school senior. I was a member of the boy's swim team for 4 years and had swam competitively for 10. I'm am an average student and rarely find myself in trouble, yet I'm am friendly with my house-master and all of my teachers. For the purpose of this story I am also white(if my name didn't give it away).

    About 4 weeks ago near the end of the day I was called down to the office and my house-master, another house-master, and the Athletic Director were there waiting. The other house-master informed me that the lone black kid on the swim team was accusing me of hate crimes. I was extremely surprised to hear this and even more shocked to hear the accusations. He was accusing me of calling him ****** non-stop for the entire season(3 months), telling him my parents raised me to hate his kind, and drawing a noose on a piece of paper, putting it in his swim locker, and telling him there's a surprise for you after practice.

    Now, I was upset because the only thing that is true from that is saying ****** which happened once, when he stole my sunglasses and put them in a toilet bowl. What I admitted to was making black jokes during times when this kid would be making jokes at everyone else on the team. He would make fun of my weight, call me a faggot, make fun of the Asians on the team, make fun of anything he could. He was the main instigator of the team.

    No one on the team made fun of each other to hurt ones feeling but just to get a laugh and pass the time and everyone had a understanding of this. This kid also had not swam in any meets all year because he hadn't passed a class the entire year to this point(he's a freshman). Plus all the kids I know dislike him and all the teachers I know have a problem with him.

    So now the kid lied about my actions, about knowing me(saying I never talked to him only to call him ******), and his own actions(saying he never did anything wrong). I said what I did and they called my dad in and told him what they told me, saying I'm facing being arrested and 2 weeks suspension.

    After they did their investigation they gave me 3 days in-school suspension, kicked me off the swim team, sensitivity training*slow jerk*, and I had to apologize. I took my punishment because I wanted it all to be over. Last week I had the suspensions and training and I wrote the letter of apology last night. I then hear from my house-master that his parents aren't happy with the punishment and want to try and pursue legal action. Then I hear from one of my teachers that this isn't the first time his family has tried this, and his parents are actually crack addicts and must be looking for money. And if you had any doubts about the black kid he was arrested Friday for selling weed at school....this kinda fucked up my month.

    Wow...I hate when people do that.

    Back in high school, my friends and I were walking around, and this guy pulls up with this van of chicks. Two chicks get out after we told them where to go and how to get there (a bunch of stoners and drunks basically) and one of these chicks gets out of the van and starts getting in my face. She trips, as I'm walking backwards away from her, and then she runs back to the van saying that I hit her. All my friends know I didn't because they were right there.

    The next day at school, some guy and his pal toss me up against the locker and tell me I'm a dead man because I hit this chick (who just happened to be standing behind these toughs). I said I didn't, told them to ask any of my friends, and told them she was too fuckin' high/drunk to know what happened at any point that night.

    After school that day, I ran home, and avoided the beat down I was supposedly going to get. Nothing ever happened, and that chick was always in trouble at school (not to mention her hired thugs as well).

    Did I mention the chick was also a native? Pfft...not as bad as your story there hammer, but..yeah...that kind of shit always sucks.

    Racism is racism no matter who is discriminating against who. But I guess I see what you mean.

    They kicked me off the team because of not only the word but for the rest of the stuff he accused me of, the problem is that they believed this kid over me.

    And they didn't have the balls to actually challenge the other kid's claims. They just played it safe to avoid a racial lawsuit.

    Oh yeah the order for the punishment came directly from the Superintendent, who met with the kid, his parents, and house-masters, but not me.

    That is some serious crap.

    The sad thing is that, as you showed, you can't really defend yourself. If they don't "believe him" and take his side, they know they will be accused of racism themselves. This way, the shit stays on you, instead of on them.

    Isn't racism wonderful?

    The only thing that got messed up was I've fallen behind in my classes but I should be caught up by the end of the week. It should go away unless they bring this to court which I assume will prove he's a lying piece of shit.

    Just as long as you're not racist to the minorities who matter the most in my life: Vietnamese girls. :)

    Wow, that's just ridiculous. You should really talk to *someone* about the stuff that's untrue that he cannot prove. If you admit to calling him the N-word once and say that's all you ever did, but explain the circumstances (he flushed your sunglasses, called you a fag, and all that) maybe it'll be taken more lightly. The noose thing and threats etc. are clearly fabricated and since he definitely has no evidence it should be dismissed. What brought it up? I mean, why now of all times?

    What a BS case... And well, since the guy got caught for pot, I'm sure that they would beleive you. But one big problem is that you admitted doing it.

    Now coming back will be harder!

    I went to get a haircut at this black barber shop up here in Tallahassee. I'm sitting here, one of only two white guys in the whole place. I waited about 2 and a half hours cuz I kept getting skipped for other black people. I knew it would happen and couldn't really say anything as I really needed the haircut and these types of places usually cut hair the best. But because I'm no black I had to keep "going to the back of the line". THAT is reverse racism.

    I know that he brought it up at his therapist's office and the therapist called the parents, they called the school. I think he must have brought it up because he is constantly in trouble and said "hey don't punish me, the swim team is being racist towards me" besides that, it is killing me to find out. I tried confronting the kid to ask him because I thought we were friendly acquaintances, but he won't even make eye contact and now it looks like he will be suspended or possibly expelled, for selling drugs.

    Heck no. I feared for my life, honestly. Plus, I plan on going back there for my haircut so I have to keep a friendly connection. I went on a weekend afternoon which I'm sure is their busiest days so I'm gonna try and go on a weekday morning to maybe avoid the same situation. I'm used to it though since it happened in Miami, also.

    yea man, it sucks to hear that story..

    for all we know, the n word didnt bother him, it was an full excuse to snitch you out in order to protect his drug sells. Just by reading your side of the story, makes me believe the kid felt as you were a threat to his drug dealing.. get what im saying? The quickest way to get rid of a supposed snitch (you, because obviously you know alot about what this kid does), is to try and get rid of you, get you kicked out... And thats what he tried to do.

    male drama makes me laugh.

    He sounds like the kind of person to give reliable testimony. :roll:

    I say you fight this bullshit. Talk to the principle, counselor, school district head-honcho, congressman, someone! He's clearly not reliable and if your record is squeeky clean, there's no reason his lies should be worth a damn. Get the other swim team members to back you up, get testimony from the coach, teachers, your parents. Bring up the fact there's no leftover noose drawings or any of that nonsense. OR-- just ignore it, deal with it, and get out of school in a few months so who cares anyway.

    What do your parents think?

    I'm kinda just ready to let it die, I already served my in-school suspensions and done my punishment so unless his drug-addict parents are looking for money from the city and take it to court then i don't care. My dad is mad but he feels I'm old enough to handle it myself, and my mom lives in Florida so she just feels bad for me.
