Mixed Reaction?

I've read every article on this matter and reviewed comments here on Hoover Sun and on Facebook. Out of around 50 comments, I saw 1 in favor of this proposed rule. Just 1. The online poll of some 700-800 people had 79% against this proposed rule. How out of touch with reality do you have to be to say that there is "mixed reaction"? The city of Hoover is decidedly against this proposed rule, and yes, Kathy Murphy, parents did read every word of the rule that will punish their child for things they say in private, off-campus. The intent of this rule doesn't matter. Do you really think that the parents in this community don't want to teach their kids about racism? Just admit this rule was a bad idea and drop it for pete's sake. It seems awfully convenient that you proposed this rule in the summer when the students it will affect can't come to the office in droves to assert their freedom of (off-campus) speech.
