Sorry submitter, not buying. Have you read the news articles about the city council and mayor of Irving, Texas? You can start with this one: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/ahmed-mohamed-beth-van-duyne-sharia
So, basically, a kid is hauled off in handcuffs and some clown goes to substantial efforts to demonstrate that he started with a Radio Shack clock.
We *need* kids tinkering around with stuff.
We even need kids who get maybe a teensy bit cheeky with their stupidest teachers.
And when the cheeky kid happens to be "not quite white" in a community with stupid bigots in charge, and they get hauled off in handcuffs, and the school leaves him suspended, we don't need some clever jackass backward-engineering his little toy to demonstrate media overreaction. We need people looking into how bigots ended up in leadership positions in Irving, Texas. Then, instead of investigating its overreaction, maybe the mainstream media could investigate why it hasn't been plain-old-reacting to this bigotry for the last fourteen years, or to the stupidity we've been witnessing for 14,000.
