KHOU – A number of Channelview ISD teachers are being disciplined after naming a student “most likely to become a terrorist.”

“They just found it as a joke,” said 7th grader Lizeth Villanueva.

She got the certificate during a mock awards ceremony this week at Anthony Aguirre Junior High. Lizeth says the teacher who signed it handed out certificates to a number of students while other teachers watched and laughed.

“She said that some people might get offended, but she doesn’t really care about our feelings,” Lizeth said. “She was laughing about it.”

They say the principal personally apologized during a meeting at the school.

How about a little bit of a congrats to ol’ Lizeth here? You know how hard it is to win an award? There’s only so many awards, and I know Texas schools have like 10,000 students each. So if you can’t win “Best Smile” or “Most likely to start a business”, winning “Most like to become a terrorist” isn’t the worst alternative. Gotta take lemons and make lemonade. Gotta stunt on the 1 or 2 other brown girls in the entire school and be like “suck it, I’m more likely to be a terrorist than you”.

As for the teacher, this is the beauty of Texas. No evolution in science books, revised Civl War history to make Lincoln the bad guy, and teachers giving 7th graders terrorism superlatives. It’s just par for the course down there. Real estate is cheap, weather is hot, but if you have a slight tan, your 13 year old ass might get called a terrorist. Tis the tradeoff.
