I don't need to say much. Clint McCance's cruel words speak for themselves:
"Seriously they want me to wear purple because five queers killed themselves. The only way im wearin it for them is if they all commit suicide. I cant believe the people of this world have gotten this stupid. We are honoring the fact that they sinned and killed thereselves because of their sin. REALLY PEOPLE."If you are in a position of authority in an educational institution, like as a vice president of a school district, keep your homophobic fears to yourself. Better yet, get a different job. Our school districts don't need leaders who discriminate, insult and, worse, wish death, on a portion of the children who attend schools in their district. Conflict of interest, much.
There is no reason for Clint McCance to still have his job. None.
Facebook Fire Clint McCance page.
The Midland School District put this up on their website:
The Midland School District, Board of Directors, administration, faculty, and staff do not support or condone the comments Mr. Clint McCance posted on his personal social networking page. Mr. McCance was not acting as an agent of the school board, but as a private citizen when this comment was posted. This post does not reflect the thoughts of the board or administration of the Midland School District.The district strives to foster an environment that discourages all forms of bullying and an environment that encourages a safe and productive educational climate of all of our students. The district is very diligent in pursuing and addressing bullying of any variety on our campuses.SincerelyDean Stanley, SuperintendentMidland School District
That's all fine and dandy, but what you going to DO about Clint McCance and the fact he still has a job with your school district? No apology can fix this. No "he won't do this ever again" will fix this. No "he's a private citizen" can fix this. He posted it on facebook, for cripes sake. He needs to be fired. The message must be loud and clear - if you wish death upon the children you are supposed to protect, you don't get to keep your job, end of story.
