JA grafittied last night. Racial hoax?

UPDATE:  JJ has confirmed that security cameras at JA and a nearby home show the perp was a white male wearing a hoodie.  Not racially motivated.  

Jackson Academy was vandalized with spray paint last night:

JJ also received a tip that a nearby home was vandalized in a similar manner but the suspect was white and wearing a hoodie.

I guess the idiot(s) who did this act of vandalism thought it would be cute to target a private school.

Never mind the fact JA has diversity in its student enrollment and is not some all-white segregation "academy" circa 1970.

if i had to guess it was probably the work of some precious snowflakes from Jackson Prep.

Just because he looked white doesn't rule out that he may have one black parent.

12:47pm, you crack me up!

JA was founded in 1959. What year was the first non-white student admitted?

I'm sure that with the economy we've had over the last 10 years JA will take anyone's money, especially if they can play a sport. But no one in Jackson believes JA was founded with anything but hate as a motive.

Just think of the cultural education our kids could get if instead they went to school with some of Ferguson's finest shown on TV last night! Where oh where are they going to learn looting and stealing skillz like that? Oh well I guess we'll just have to settle with them growing up to be actual productive members of society.

Something tells me the kid that did this graffiti was raised in a household full of Thad supporters.

BOLO for hipster with skinny jeans, glasses, and beard. Will be doing penance for using spray paint and depleting ozone layer. Getaway vehicle Toyota Prius with CoExist and Obama/Biden stickers. Last seen headed for Apple store to pick up latest expensive product in order to document police state U.S.A.

JA actually started in 1959 as Burress Academy, though I may not have that spelling right. Mr. Burress was headmaster and the school was started by a group of parents who wanted their children taught to read using phonics vs. some other method JPS had switched to. While there nothing racial about this move given that white and black schools were "separate but equal" (sic), the junior high and high schools weren't added until the 1970s when overnight Prep and Council Schools popped up and there was a whole new market out there.

Finally, let's remember that not all the protesters in Ferguson are black. There are plenty of whites out too, just as there are in Jackson

Because it was correctly spelled?

I think you guys have your cliches mixed up. But I do fervently hope that this particular tagger HUFFED the rest of that can of gold spray paint, and will be found in a conscious-but-helpless state behind someone's garage on Sheffield - and that he will spend decades in a semi-brain-dead-but-pain-filled living nightmare, in some institution... at his parents' expense, of course.

PittPanther you are an idiot. Jackson Academy was founded as a school for children with learning disabilities.

3:28 the "whites" are members of the "Occupy Wall Street" movement, and the American Communist party among others. No I am not kidding or crazy.

Pittpanther said...

4:07 and 3:28, you two need to get your stories straight. I wonder how many other reasons you guys can gather for why JA was started.

Revisionist history is so fun, isn't it?

Anonymous said...

3:28 pm is absolutely correct. Founded by Dr. Burros who had been a teacher at St. Andrew's in the 50's and had a strong belief about the importance of phonics in teaching reading.

looked white? on some grainy video film? I see plenty of light skinned blacks (often called "high yellow") that would "appear white" under similar circumstances.

I think JA can afford to fix the sign. No news here.

When I was in high school, cross county rival broke into our high school and left a horse in the cafeteria. Needless to say, we weren't able to eat lunch the Monday afterwards. Nobody got sent to jail...

Anonymous said...

4:42, how many of those murderers were cops?

Because I think you're missing something here.

Anonymous said...

5:18...if they were cops there would still be no national media coverage. The point here is that it is the lack of personal responsibility being taught to young blacks. My question here is where were Brown's parents before he was killed. They obviously we're not teaching him not to steal, to respect the authority of law enforcement. Ultimately in this case one person is to blame for Micheal Brown's death and that's Micheal Brown. His decisions lead to his death.

Johnny Weir said...

Ferguson reminds me of the Zoot Suit Riots in 1943. Nothing new here.

It's easy to blame parents for a teen's misbehavior. I don't pretend to know how Michael Brown's parents raised him., but I have enough experience to know it isn't always the parents who are to blame. Through painful experience I am all too aware of situations where parents have done everything possible, but the child still makes bad choices, gets Involved with the wrong friends, etc., and ends upon trouble with the law. Sometimes there are mental health issues involved that complicate matters greatly. I have learned not to judge parents for their teen's bad behavior without knowing a lot more about the circumstances. There is a lot of bad parenting out there. It isn't limited to poor blacks. But it isn't always the fault of the parents. Therefore I don't presume that the Browns were bad parents because their son committed a crime or crimes. That is a different issue from whether the policeman should have been indicted. I think the grand jury got it right.

hey tea party- the liberal hipsters in NYC just out constitutionalized your butts in oh so many ways.
And umm, guess what? They weren't deemed as terrorists! Bazaam to yaz.

( the kid was being an opportunistic lawbreaker vandalizing my former school - JA)

Tell da troof, Danny Mollisack! said...

3:54, it's my former school, too, and if your lack of coherence is any indication of the current standards, I weep for JA.

To the utter moron who said JA was founded on hate, you are so typical of today's knee jerk liberal...spitting out uninformed superlatives and claiming the intellectual and moral high ground based solely upon your self-centered sheeplike ideological bent.

I am amused at this new breed of useful idiot who has convinced him or herself of their own utter brilliance for swallowing and regurgitating someone else's thinking.

Here's a simple bit of math. JA was founded in 1959, a decade before integration. Why would a school that was an alternative to a segregated public school system be founded on hate? Go ask your leftist overlords to think up an answer to that!

To the comment who left up all the names of whites who have been killed by blacks. There was no need to protest or be outraged because their killers were arrested right away . So go do some more homework. You would be outraged as well I'd your killer was walking around free

8:56am, you assume wrong. Not sure why you would make such a ridiculous assumption.

Bearss Academy and JA have zero in common. JA was founded in 1959, Bearss Academy was still operating into the 1990's. Mr. & Mrs. Bearss divorced, then retired and sold the school to a group of parents who then ran the facilities as an after school program.

HottyToddyguy said...

You guys Brown Vs Board happened in 1954.... it just took the MS public school system 16 years and they were finally forced to integrate in 1970-71. I'm pretty sure people knew eventually this would hit integration would happen in MS when it was deemed unconstitutional in '54, not saying that's what happened to JA but its plausible that it was founded on simple preventative strategy. St. Andrew's has admitted blacks since the 60's before integration was technically legal in MS (not that that makes a difference it was just a little visual.)

Loyal Myron Bearss was the founding headmaster of Jackson Academy and served in that role until 1966. He also was headmaster when JA moved to it's current location, but JA was actually founded in a house on Northview Dr.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
