Video: Why is this shockingly anti-gay (among other things) speech happening in a Connecticut public school?

by Jeremy Hooper

According to both the video description and a separate advertisement for the event this speech from Umar John took place earlier this month at Hillhouse High School in New Haven, CT. It will take only about a minute for you to see why it's deeply problematic (even if technically legal) for a public school to have its name connected to such a speech:

@1:05: "Some of you gay—you sick. Some of you hate black people—you sick. Some of you married to white women—your ass is as sick as them all."

I have a message in to the principal of this high school, Kermit Carolina (a Democrat who last year ran for mayor of New Haven), as well as other administrators with the board of education. I trust someone will see a need to respond. I know I'd jump at the chance to detach my employer's respected name from any connection to a speech like this.
