PLEASANT HILL (CBS/AP) — A substitute secretary apparently mistook a racist cartoon for a harmless comic and sent it out as part of a Pleasant Hill middle school’s newsletter.

The newsletter sent last week from Sequoia Middle School in Pleasant Hill included a Peanuts cartoon showing a black character with a noose around his neck beneath the words “White Pride.”

School officials said the cartoon was in fact evidence from a 3-year-old hate crime investigation stemming from racist graffiti on a campus mural.

Principal Connie Cirimeli wrote in a letter Sunday that the busy secretary added the digital image to the newsletter without examining it closely.

Cirimeli says the secretary then sent out the newsletter without having other staffers proofread it, contrary to school policy.

    That’s not Charlie Brown! It’s Charlie Black!!! I’m sure the comments are rolling in. Sadly, this IS just another bad example of the level of public intelligence and tolerance many of our institutions are dependent upon- to guide and teach (or not teach) our next generation. Garbage in garbage out.

    Nobody is flooding and forcibly “integrating” every black nations and ONLY black nations with non-blacks and calling native blacks evil racists for opposing their replacement. This is happening in white nations and ONLY in white nations. They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-white. Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white. Its genocide.

    “RACISM is just an attack word, carefully sharpened in the hands of the ANTI-WHITES, those who support white genocide based upon the policy of AFRICA FOR AFRICANS, ASIA FOR ASIANS AND WHITE COUNTRIES FOR EVERYONE. Its a program to force immigration against the wishes of the white people, forced integration leading to assimilation and eventual extinction of white people. Its racist not to support this policy.”
