Poor Kid

First grade class comes in from recess.

The teacher asks Alice: "What did you do at recess?"
Alice says, "I played in the sand box."
Teacher says "That's good.  Go to the blackboard, and if you can write 'sand' correctly, I'll give you a fresh-baked cookie."
She does and gets a cookie.

The teacher asks Billy what he did at recess.
Billy says, "I played with Alice in sand box."
Teacher says, "Good.  If you write 'Box' correctly on blackboard, I'll give you a fresh baked cookie."
Billy does, and gets a cookie.

The teacher then asks Mustaffa Machmoud what he did at recess.
He says, "I tried to play with Alice and Billy, but they threw rocks at me."
Teacher says, "Threw rocks at you?  That sounds like blatant racial discrimination.  If you can go the blackboard and write 'blatant racial discrimination' I'll give you a cookie."
