WTH Wednesday: Racist Brownies

I deem this: WTH Wednesday. We may need to make it a regular thing, the way this world is going.

Today’s edition is devoted to Racist Brownies.

Apparently, the scourge of political correctness has reached a level in Collingswood, New Jersey of such epic proportions, that the school day had to be disrupted, in order to call in the Collingswood Police Department to investigate and regain order.


The dastardly culprit was a 9-year old boy.

His crime: He made a comment about brownies that were being served in class and another student deemed the comment “racist.”

Chaos ensued. The authorities were called. A child was traumatized by having police officers question him.

From the Washington Times:

The boy’s mother, Stacy dos Santos, said the school’s response was a complete overreaction.

“He said they were talking about brownies. … Who exactly did he offend?” she told Philly.com.

Police later contacted the boy’s father and referred the incident to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency.

There are several WTH?!? moments here.

First of all, another third grade child ratted him out. How would a 9-year old know about equating a remark about brownies with racism? You have to assume the liberal brainwashing began very early and kids in this school are already learning about white privilege, “safe spaces,” and other limp-wristed, social justice idiocy.

Secondly, the incident was referred to the New Jersey Division of Child Protection and Permanency.

The website for the agency states:

Child Protection and Permanency, CP&P (formerly the Division of Youth and Family Services, DYFS), is New Jersey’s child protection and child welfare agency within the Department of Children and Families. Its mission is to ensure the safety, permanency and well-being of children and to support families.

CP&P is responsible for investigating allegations of child abuse and neglect and, if necessary, arranging for the child’s protection and the family’s treatment.

The Child Abuse Hotline (State Central Registry) receives all reports of child abuse and neglect 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.  Reports requiring a field response are forwarded to the CP&P Local Office who investigates.  Find contact information for CP&P Local Offices HERE.

After normal business hours, the hotline is linked with a statewide network of Special Response Units charged with the responsibility of responding to reports. For more information about reporting child abuse click HERE.

Each year, CP&P contracts with many community-based agencies throughout the state to provide services to children and families. Such services include counseling, parenting skills classes, substance abuse treatment, in-home services, foster care and residential placement.

If a child has been harmed or is at risk of harm, CP&P may ask the county family court to place the child in foster care. Foster homes are provided by caring individuals who have completed an extensive licensing program. Learn more about becoming a foster parent HERE.

If the family court determines a child cannot be safely returned home from foster care, CP&P will begin adoption planning. Learn more about adopting a child HERE.


So let that roll around in your brain pan for a bit.

We don’t know what the little boy said, exactly, but he was talking about brownies. What could he have possibly said that warranted a visit by the police, and the threat of being taken from his family, to be placed in foster care?

This is such a ridiculous show of political correctness run amok, there’s no way to adequately voice my disgust.

I can only hope that Collingswood is an otherwise peaceful town. Their police department is likely too preoccupied with being the thought police to tend to any actual crimes.
