Tahiyyah Howard, the mother of Justin Howard, a 7th grade student at Tomball Junior High School, is sick of her son being bullied because of his race. White students invited him to a KKK birthday party in his honor.

Tahiyyah Howard (Justin’s Mother)

It is almost unfathomable to imagine African-American youth enduring the same blatant humiliation and disrespect that their ancestors endured up until the late 60’s, but sadly, they are. Justin Howard, a 7th grade African-American student at Tomball Junior High School in Tomball, Texas, was recently invited to a “KKK birthday party” in his honor.

This is one of many instances of racism the young boy has encountered and his mother, Tahiyyah Howard, is fed up. “I’m just, really, you know, sick of it,” Howard told a local news station. “A girl wrote on the board ‘Black Justin’ and my son was really upset.” The latest incident involving the fake KKK birthday invitation, is the most egregious example of racism the child has experienced.  “[They] put it on his desk and said that he was invited to a KKK birthday party with lots of fun and games,” said Howard, who has not sought action outside the school.

Fortunately, Justin did not see the note because a teacher intercepted and reported the incident. School officials confirmed the incident and released a statement indicating that the two perpetrators had been disciplined. “Two Tomball Junior High students left a note for a third student that referenced the Ku Klux Klan,” school district spokeswoman Staci Stanfield said in a statement. “The teacher picked up the note before the intended recipient could see it. The campus administrators were notified and took proactive steps by contacting the parent of the intended recipient to inform the parent of the situationThe behavior of the two students who wrote the note is not acceptable. Both students who left the note were disciplined according to the District’s Student Code of Conduct,” she added.

The district can not legally disclosed the level of discipline the two students received. Howard is hoping the kids will learn a valuable lesson about their hurtful actions. “They [the students] need to know that there are consequences and not just one-day suspension where they can go home and play video games all day. I think the parents should teach their kids that being racist or bullying is not OK, no matter if you’re playing around or just being mean. It’s just not OK,” she told local news reporters.

Do you believe Howard should seek legal action outside of the school?

    I live a few miles from Tomball. This doesn’t surprise me AT ALL. It’s a shame but nothing will ever change there. These kids are taught to hate and they seem to grasp it very well.

      Oh yeah…they are taught from the womb…black children must be diligent and arm and protect themselves by any means necessary…

    I would put every penny of my money into a private Christian school for my child. Will she wait until he is killed? Where is his dad?

      Where is his dad? Maybe he is MIA but that does not mean the mother can’t handle the situation. You speak as if her kid was in the wrong. I thought the racists where wrong. H**l a lot of kids, black and white, are raised by the hands of single mothers. Shame on you. The point is this mothers kid is being harassed by racists (kids at that) and the s**t needs to stop. She is strong for speaking out.

    She should seek legal assistance to file a “Hate Crime” lawsuit against the kids responsible and their family.

    Some times I feel that those crackers have a different GOD than the rest of us. The reason I say that is because their nasty hate seems to lives forever. they seems to pass it on as if god gave them the right to hate and blessed them and their children with hate and jelousy,jelousy and more jelousy. They don’t like your hair, Yet they try to get theirs like yours. Your color of your skin, the sun won’t let theirs stay dark. your talents, over whelms them, they can not imitate you. Your history does not reconize them as it does you. Their children are miseducated about the truth. Or are taught not to accept the truth. The world is full of different kinds of people. They have learned how to illimenate the rest of the world, they appointed themselves gods. But one day it will come to light, and their children will have hell to pay. I believe that our GOD will provail.

      In my opinion, yes they do have a different God and his
      name is Lucifer and they do his will and worship him by
      spreading confusion, lies, hatred, racism, and bloodshed!

    This child needs the Black community to embrace him and help him feel safe. The mother, who appears to be on the forefront of this, also needs support. Each person here has expressed their concerns. we can take that a step forward by setting up a site to send this young man (and his mother) words of comfort and support. There is also the option to start a petition on Change.org or one of the many other petition sites to ensure that a spotlight is shone on the events around racism and terrorizing children, or others, in this town. This is a place- by-place war with one unifying theme. These stories are cropping up more and more all over the country–passive aggressive racism through notes, letters, emails, aggressive verbal attacks, physical attacks and violence -but they all follow a similar pattern and carry the same theme. Use the web for more than giving one’s opinion; Start blogs and petitions, send condolences and prayers to the victims, so that they don’t feel alone or forgotten in their struggles.

    This mom needs to get this child out of that school because this is probably not the first time he has been bothered by these racist kids. Suttle comments and even outright nasty, racist, hate comments can really make him uncomfortable enough that he can’t concentrate on his education. GET HIM OUT NOW!!

    • greyeyedgirl

      That is exactly what they want…but I do agree; otherwise she will have to send him to school ARMED! Yes it is best to get him out.

    Very sad and very scary. People are just ignorant and there is no excuse for this type of behavior at a public school, that we all pay taxes to support. Something drastic from the school needs to be done to send a message that this type of behavior/hatefulness will not be tolerated. PERIOD!

    They have to be carefully taught. In this case, they have been taught racism, whether by words or by the actions of their elders. They should be taught respect for others as well as for themselves.

      “you have to be carefully taught…” great words, lyrics, and mantra. kids imitate from birth, the actions of those closest to them. just as there is no report of retaliation by the student (blacks will continue to ‘turn the other cheek’); the lessons the “victim” student has learned are imbedded in his character.

      and, it hasn’t been since Obama. it’s more of since Obama, it’s been more reported, more accepted and more celebrated.

    One of the biggest problems in planning this type of event is always the expectation by the birthday person. They probably know you have something planned that makes it more difficult to surprise them. Throwing the person off guard becomes very important if you want your Birthday Party to be a success. For example,nike tn pas cher, try throwing the party a weekend prior to the birthday before he or she begins to suspect anything. Another idea is to have a small family party on the day of or the day before the person’s birthday then they won’t be as likely to suspect a second event. ;
