Big yikes out of Chattanooga, Tennessee. Principal Christy Caldwell Drake of East Ridge Middle School is in a bit of hot water. Why, you ask? Well, the school went with “All Lives Matter” as their theme. For Black History Month.
There’s actually a silly explanation, per Memphis News Channel 3:
Christy Caldwell Drake, principal at East Ridge Middle School in Chattanooga, issued an apology Monday, saying her inspiration for the theme came from a school mural stating, “Where Every Child Matters.” “I want to apologize for not more fully considering the context of that theme,” Drake, who is Black, wrote to parents.
