Black girl who accused her white classmates of cutting her dreadlocks made up story, family admits
Immanuel Christian School issued a statement confirming the story was a hoax along with an apology from the child’s family.
“To those young boys and their parents, we sincerely apologize for the pain and anxiety these allegations have caused," the family wrote.
Amari Allen’sstory, which went viral after she gave multiple interviews, alleged the assault had taken place Sept. 23 at the school’s Fairfax campus, prompting nationwide outrage, accusations of racism and evena police investigation.
Like any religion, wokeness understands the need to convert children. The old Jesuit motto (sometimesattributedto Voltaire) was, after all, “Give me the child for the first seven years and I will give you the man.” And so I was moved but not particularly surprised by George Packer’staleof a progressive school banishing separate restrooms for boys and girls because this reinforces the gender binary. The school did not inform parents of this, of course:
Parents only heard about it when children started arriving home desperate to get to the bathroom after holding it in all day. Girls told their parents mortifying stories of having a boy kick open their stall door. Boys described being afraid to use the urinals. Our son reported that his classmates, without any collective decision, had simply gone back to the old system, regardless of the new signage: Boys were using the former boys’ rooms, girls the former girls’ rooms. This return to the familiar was what politicians call a “commonsense solution.” It was also kind of heartbreaking.
