Let’s play a thought game. But first, a story from NJ:
A Lawrence Intermediate School Spanish teacher who allegedly threatened to bring a gun to school and shoot his students has been charged with harassment, according to police Lt. Mark Ubry.
Gualberto Gonzalez, 59, allegedly made the threat to shoot the students in the kneecap Oct. 22, after some disruptions in the classroom, Lt. Ubry said. The teacher allegedly said, â€śDonâ€™t make me bring my gun in because I will shoot your kneecaps off,â€ť he said.
Now, as it turns out, Mr. Gonzalez doesn’t even own a gun and he was probably just exasperated at unruly behavior in his classroom.
But, let’s speculate about media reaction to his threat. Is he a “Tea Partier?” A racist? A “right-wing” extremist? Is he anti-government?
I only ask this because if he was white, and had actually carried out his threat, the media would be labeling him as all-of-the-above. You know it, and I know it.
