You would think that a school that has the reputation of producing intelligent people would have common sense. Not so at Brother Martin High.
Today's Times Pic carried a story about clueless school administrators that allowed Brother Martin students to wear black masks during a pep rally before last Friday's football game against St. Augustine High School, an historically black school. Brother Martin President John Devlin avers that Brother Martin had no intention of igniting a racial controversy and that the students were spoofing the Batman movie "The Dark Knight," (St. Augustine teams are known as the Purple Knights). Mr. Devlin, did you THINK about this scenario? Is there anything in place at your school where adults oversee "skits" done at pep rallies. This is the 21st century, for gawd sakes!!
