9-Year-Old Boy Arrested After Teacher Claims He Made A ‘Racist’ Dessert Comment

School administrators with very poor judgement in New Jersey decided to call police to an end-of-the-year class party for third graders this May.

It seems a third grader made some comment about the brownies being served to the class at the party. When another student said the remark was "racist," and there was some discussion, the teacher got involved, and an overzealous school administrator contacted the Collingswood Police Department.

The mother of the boy who made the alleged racist comment, Stacy dos Santos, said a police officer showed up and questioned her nine-year-old son about what he had said.

Dos Santos pointed out her son made a comment about the snacks, not about skin color. She said she was quite upset that the teacher and the school had massively overreacted to a complete nonevent.

In yet another twist, the Collingwood PD referred the incident to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency. Perhaps the biggest tragedy here is that after the incident, the boy was upset and stayed home for his last day of class.

Dos Santos says her son was traumatized by the stressful experience, and she plans to send him to a different Collingswood public school this fall.

The irate mom also says she and her son deserve an apology. Of note, Dos Santos graduated from Collingswood High School and has two other kids, one of whom already graduated from Collingwood High School.

The ridiculously politically correct incident has outraged many parents. A few parents pointed out that Collingswood police are frequently being called for school incidents that parents believe do not merit criminal investigation, and this needs to stop now.

Collingwood School Superintendent Scott Oswald did admit that on some occasions this year, officers responded to as many as five incidents a day at schools in the district of only 1,875 students.
