    Folks are really out here justifying the behavior of a mob because an elderly man approached them playing a drum.

    I hope they don’t go to a March For Life in New Orleans.

    Two, MAYBE three kids.

    Punish those kids? Sure, but don't act like the entire group on the trip was doing it, which is exactly what people on here are doing.
    The general tone of the letters is that the group is totally innocent, and that isn't true.

    I also believe Mr. Phillips initiated the confrontation. He clearly moved to where they were, but some of the students also clearly derided him.

    Some serious cyber bullying happening right now. Talk to any NKY sports photographer who has posted pictures on fb of sporting events that include Cov Cath players. Nasty comments are being written on their fb pages.

    Nobody should in anyway justify the behavior of the student mob....its despicable, there is no defense. Just as people should not overlook an adult obviously trying to instigate a mob of kids. Two wrongs...both wrong. What the students do is more egregious, but don't excuse the other because of it.

    They that bothered by an elderly man that they have to re-enact the images of the Little Rock Nine? And the chaperones were where?

    Well you know, had the students been the bigger people they were surely taught to be at home and at school then they would have ignored the ramblings of the drunken Indian and quietly waited for their buses to pick them up.

    What was Mr. Phillips intending to do by approaching the group?

    As to the chaperones, I can't imagine how adults could sit idly by as a group of teenagers surround an individual or two. Some serious neglect on their part if you ask me.

    But then that would be asking them to follow the values they supposedly teach at their school.

    Some reports say that he was trying to diffuse the situation between the CCH group and the group of African Americans by playing his song. Was apparently a song to reduce the toxicity of man.

    Could be, and if that's true, good for him.

    I did come across a 2015 story where Mr. Phillips made accusations against some Eastern Michigan students. He saw them painted up and "acting like Indians" for lack of a better phrase. He claims they mocked him and that one student threw something at him. But I couldn't find out how that story ended up, or if the students were punished.

    A Native American experiencing racism more than once? Who could possibly be surprised by that?

    Probably my most unpopular opinion is that protests, whether peaceful or not, are largely a waste of time. I have found that they tend to create more divisions and less solutions.

    Again, that was his claim.
