[ # ] Laissez Le Bon Temps Roulet! Except in Terrebonne Parish!
July 1st, 2008 under Hypocrisy, Louisiana, Racism

district-l.jpgBigoted moron and Terrebonne Parish School Board member, Rickie Pitre is leading a charge to make English the only spoken language at graduation ceremonies. Seems that Rickie took offense to Cindy Vo’s comments at Ellender High School’s Graduation. Cindy, the American-born daughter of Vietnamese immigrants, who was the valedictorian had the nerve to say, “Co len minh khong bang ai, co suon khong ai bang minh.” She then explained that the expression, roughly translated, was a command to always be your own person.

Rickie and the School Board are pissed! How dare that girl use anything but English in her speech! Come on cher!

A couple of things.
1. Hey Rickie–Why not change the name of your parish? Terrebonne means “good earth” in FRENCH! God knows we should hate the French! Remember “Freedom Fries”?

2. Hey Rickie–Didn’t your ancestors get flack over their use of French? Can’t you see how that might be a bad thing?

Rickie and his bigoted buddies can be contacted here.

This is bull!

A high school girl thanks her family in their native language and they instantly want to ban foreign languages?

Yeesh, thank god they weren’t speaking Mexican or they probably would have been lynched on the spot.

WTF is going on here in the land of the free these days?!!
