From The Annals Of Odd Defenses

Mo. students face punishment for `Hit a Jew Day'(Jim Salter, AP, 10/24/08)
At least four students from a suburban St. Louis middle school face punishment for allegedly hitting Jewish classmates during what they called "Hit a Jew Day."

The incident happened last week at Parkway West Middle School in Chesterfield.

District officials said Thursday they believe that fewer than 10 children of the district's 35 Jewish students were struck.
UPDATE: Mrs. Davidssecretblog finds it somewhat ominous that they apparently have a list of the district's Jewish students.

Let's hope the Jewish (and tall) kids hit back, though the story doesn't tell us what happened.

It seems more like an observation than a defense.

That's the thing that ought to strike you as odd. At least.

...a disappointing effort this year, but they will be hoping for at least a 50% success rate in the forthcoming Knee a Muslim in the Groin Week.

In Hawaii, the schools allegedly have Kill Haole (white) Day, although my kids never said anything about it.

They were, from time to time, discriminated against, attacked or insulted for their minority status. But they went to a pretty good school. There were others that were worse.

I know lots of adult haoles who say they never went to the bathroom all through school, otherwise they'd have been pounded.

I blame the NEA.
