Michael Eric Dyson’s Grandson Threatened At School

Michael Eric Dyson is shedding light on a scary situation involving his grandson. The activist and author told Fox 5 D.C. that his six-year-old grandson was called the N-word and threatened at his elementary school in Northwest D.C.

According to Dyson, little Maxem Dyson was targeted by a fellow first-grader, a white boy, who said he’d “get his father’s gun.”

“He says, ‘I’m going to go home and get my father’s gun and come back and shoot you,’” said Dyson. Unfortunately, this represents for us the deep and abiding roots of white supremacy that are set loose in this country. How can a six-year-old kid know to call his classmate the N-word?”

Dyson and his family members are livid that the child was allowed to finish out the school day after the incident and has yet to face disciplinary action.

School officials say they acknowledge that the boy made a threat, however, they’re still determining if a racial slur was used. (SMFH)

D.C. Public Schools provided a statement to Fox 5 that read;

“DCPS is committed to maintaining safe and welcoming environments for students and staff. We will provide Mann the support it needs to adequately address this issue and continue to partner with our school communities to ensure meaningful learning and positive interactions occur within all of our school buildings.”

Michael Eric Dyson also tweeted about the incident:

What do YOU think is the appropriate disciplinary action for this situation??? Something HAS to happen, right?
