    Default Four-year-old boy guilty of racism

    Gosh they start young don't they?
    A headteacher has defended her decision to investigate an allegation that a four-year-old boy was guilty of racism during a game of chase.

    Anne Phipps acted after Rocky Smith spat at a 10-year-old black boy on the school's playing field. She said she had no choice but to pursue the accusation, despite the child's age.

    Racism campaigners have also expressed surprise at the school's actions, but insist that even very young children can be racist.
    Rocky's parents, Sarah, 35, and Iain Smith, 37, are demanding an apology from the school.

    Mrs Smith said: "After it happened, I said to Rocky 'what is a racist?' and he said 'it's when you have races with your friends and the person who wins is it'. I can't believe they even called me. Rocky was wrong for lashing out and I've spoken to him about that, but how can a four-year-old be racist?

    And as if by magic...

    I didn't know it was racist to spit at someone if that person is black.

    Another lesson for us all.

    I was thinking this morning, Clippy's busy with his cut 'n' paste antics - are you after a record for how many identical posts you can make today?

    Nah, that'd be me.
