Diversity Means Not being Able to Have Nice Things: Easter Egg Hunt Cancelled Because of a Few “Unruly Parents”


Was a photo editor insinuating that this little black girl was being victimized? When local press show pictures of white kids at these Easter egg hunts (in East Pottstown and environs) they only show pics that make it look like they're having a great time.

I recall these incidents from previous years. The local press refused to publish any pictures of the “unruly parents.” You know what scrappy koala says: When you censor the pictures, we get the picture.

POTTSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania volunteer fire company says it has canceled this year's Easter egg hunt for children because of "unruly" parents in past years.

The Norco Fire Company in North Coventry Township says on its Facebook page the annual children's event won't be held this year.

Deputy Chief Chuck Hipple says there has been a recurring problem of some parents running onto the field despite having been told not to and posing a danger to children. He says it's not the majority of people but a few people "just can't seem to let the kids have fun."

Officials say they hope to try again later to hold the event in the township near Pottstown, 40 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
