6. Hard to draw conclusions from that report. The givers were mixed race, the recipients unknown. . .

Everything was cool in the weekend after the gift was delivered at the game Friday night, but the allegations came Monday. Did an adult get involved Monday morning and decide that the kids should be offended? And even if the receiving teens were upset, was a learning opportunity missed in the wake of someone's determination to seek "justice," whatever that may be?

I think the first thing to understand is, when dealing with high school teenagers, your dealing with high school teenagers, kids who may be ignorant of their actions implications, and more in need of education than punishment. Can't tell from this report, however. Hope it all works out well for everyone involved and doesn't become a cause for resentment or ill-will.
