Appalling: Daycare Centre Called Out for Refusing Sunscreen to Black Children

Appalling: Daycare Centre Called Out for Refusing Sunscreen to Black Children

A fed-up mother drove Redditors to outrage after she left a bad review for her child’s daycare. The teachers just didn’t think their racist attitude deserved the backlash they got. Here is the full story.

OP has an 8-year-old daughter who spends her after-school hours in a local daycare.

Things were mostly fine as far as OP could tell, until the weather warmed up and the kids started spending more time outdoors.

Black Children Forced to Sit in the Sun Unprotected

Since it was getting hot and sunny, the school provided the kids with sunscreen. But when OP’s daughter asked for some the teachers told her no.

It seems the sunscreen was only for the white kids. The teachers told OP’s daughter that since she was black, she wouldn’t get sunburned.

And then there was the time the daycare went on a field trip. The adults had the black kids sit in the sun but pulled the white kids into the shade so their skin wouldn’t be damaged.

Mother Searches for a Solution

All of that outraged OP, but she decided to try and work through it rather than cause a big scene. So OP went to her daughter’s daycare to talk to the teachers. They said that black people didn’t need sunscreen, but they offered a compromise.

The adults running the daycare told OP they’d let her daughter use sunscreen at school if she had a doctor’s note for it.

So OP got some sunscreen and a doctor’s note and sent them to school with her daughter. She told the girl to use the sunscreen when she went outside.

OP also told her daughter to share the sunscreen with other kids who didn’t have any. But when OP’s daughter tried to share her sunscreen, a teacher took it from her and said she didn’t have permission from the other parents or the school.

Child Becomes Sunburned

So, naturally, with no sunscreen but plenty of direct exposure to sunlight, OP’s daughter eventually got sunburned. She came home with red and peeling skin.

That’s when OP had reached her limit, so she posted a review of the daycare on Yelp. In that review, OP said that the daycare caused her daughter to get sunburned because they were racist. And she also said they had increased her girl’s chances of getting skin cancer.

Ignorant or Racist?

Then OP sent articles to the head administrator of the daycare, explaining how black people can get both sunburned and skin cancer if they don’t use the proper protection.

OP also sent the names of the teachers who had been harassing her daughter instead of protecting her. But the administrator didn’t want to hear anything OP had to say and told her that the teachers were just following orders.

The other woman also repeated to OP that black people have more protection from the sun than white people, so there was no need for her daughter to use sunscreen.

Will Media Exposure Help?

Now, OP is furious with the school, and she’s considering going to the local media with her story. Redditors overwhelmingly agree with OP and think everyone at the school is out of line and acting in a racist manner.

Many commenters say OP should definitely go to the media to expose these awful behaviors, and several urge her to find other arrangements for her daughter.

Republican ‘Moms for Liberty’ Newsletter Quotes Hitler in Error

Republican ‘Moms for Liberty’ Newsletter Quotes Hitler in Error

A Republican group called “Moms for Liberty” has apologized after getting their newsletter horribly wrong by quoting Hitler and putting it on the front page.

“Moms for Liberty” Quoting Hitler

Right-wing group, ‘Moms for Liberty,’ faced a massive backlash after quoting Adolf Hitler in their newsletter, sparking widespread criticism.

The Hamilton County, Indiana chapter of the group stunned readers by featuring one of Hitler’s famous 1935 rally quotes. 

The quote in question read, “He alone, who OWNS the youth, GAINS the future,” and appeared on the front page of their newsletter.

Labeled as an “extremist group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Moms for Liberty faced scrutiny, yet again, due to their controversial actions.

Using the Shock Factor

Facing criticism, co-founders Tiffany Justice and Tina Descovich dismissed their “extremist group” label.

The newsletter was updated to explain their use of the Hitler quote, where they claimed the quote was used to shock people and “Put parents on alert.”

The group went on to say, “If the government has control over our children today, they control our country’s future. We The People must be vigilant and protect children from an overreaching government.”

The group later made it clear on their Facebook page that they do not condone the actions of Hitler, “We condemn Adolf Hitler’s actions and his dark place in human history.”

Deepest Apologies Issued

The group was also forced to apologize for using the quote and posted on their Facebook page, “We should not have quoted him in our newsletter and express our deepest apology.”

The Indianapolis Star initially reported the story, with the newsletter photo titled The Parent Brigade causing a social media uproar and swift condemnation.

Local politicians joined the chorus of criticism against the group, underscoring the unsettling nature of the quoted statement.

In response to the controversy, the updated version of the newsletter saw that the quotes were removed.

“Our Community and Kids Deserve Better.”

Democratic Senator J.D. Ford of Indiana Senate’s District 29 expressed his outrage on Twitter, asserting that “hate has no place in the community” and “our community and kids deserve better.”

Local political figures, including Mario Massillamany of the Hamilton County Republican party, said, “I think Adolf Hitler is terrible, and I would never quote Adolf Hitler or the Nazis in any shape or form other than saying they are bad or terrible.”

Twitter users and critics voiced their shock at the use of the Hitler quote, with one saying, “A Moms for Liberty newsletter quotes Hitler. If you’re still wondering why SPLC labeled them a hate group.”

Moms for Liberty’s upcoming annual conference in Philadelphia gains attention, with notable Republican speakers like Donald Trump, Ron DeSantis, and Nikki Haley on the lineup.

Unveiling the Magic: Wizard Quest Review in Wisconsin Dells

I’ve been going to Wisconsin Dells for 30+ years and am usually loyal to my fan favorites, but when I heard about Wizard Quest, I was immediately intrigued. Wizard Quest came up as an option when I was looking into tickets for Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and a quick glance at their website made it such that I knew I had to visit. As is usually the case in articles like these, I’m in no way affiliated or sponsored by Wizard Quest. This is a genuine review as a mom, gamer, and fantasy fan.

Best Spooky Bedtime Books For Kids Who Love Scary Stories

My kids absolutely love scary stories, even at bedtime! They’re in first and second grade, so while we’re still very mindful about what’s read to them before bed, they love spooky books. Both my husband and I grew up with the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books. If you’ve been on my site at all, you’ll quickly realize we love Halloween just a wee bit. While our kids love spooky books too, we didn’t want to traumatize them with the Scary Stories series, as it’s for far older kids.
