Re: “A little lip from Fayetteville High

Forgive me if I have missed the point entirely of posting these videos, but I feel as though I see it very clearly and this is my reaction:

I love it when the media and its readers miss the point. Has anyone here considered the purpose of these videos? Including the original poster? I say call for a thousand more, for, as someone who was involved in one of the above lip dubs, I saw groups of diverse students from two very different (yes) high schools in our state supporting the concept of embracing new people, students, and the community into a place they call home during four of the most influential years of their lives. If any of you had been there as the videos were conceptualized and created, I assume that you would not have taken precious time out out of such a lovely day to criticize, 14-18 year-olds and their teachers.

This story was uncalled for unless it was presented in positive light. To the students, particularly at NLRHS, who have seen this, several apologies are due. There isn't an ounce of "gangsta" in half the people that appeared in that video and to even use that word in reference to an entire building based off of staunch and uptight opinions that hold no merit, is foolish. We should praise these students for the work they do, not tell them to lay off cause we are sick of repeats.

And Bates, I don't think good journalism has anything to do with your distinct eye for a missed possessive either. Refreshing, really.
