African-American suspended

Those who were offended by the 'Michael Jackson photo' below are going to love this story. An African-American student was suspended from his Nebraska school after posters with his mug on were posted all over the school advocating he receive the' Distinguished African American Student Award.'

The student was a white South African. His mother said her son, Trevor Richards, "is not a racist." Some of his best friends are black, she said. I swear, I am not making this up.
