This is a hate crime and I hope he is charged accordingly.
I am not positive it is endangerment, but it is definitely child abuse.
FYI - I wasn't referencing Oberlin. Ohio has many LACs. I suggest you get a map.
I grew up in the Cleveland area and am still quite fond of the region, but truth be told I did see a lot of closet racism. I had hoped that this was something from the past, but my daughter now goes to a lovely small liberal arts college about 30 miles from Cleveland. She tells me that most of the students are lovely, but that she has also never heard the "n" word so much in her life. FYI - she grew up below the Mason-Dixon line.
She and I both agree that the state and especially the Cleveland area has much going for it, yet it would be wrong to pretend that the racist factor is not present. It must be acknowledged to be defeated.
