‘They’re talking about lynching my son’: Middle schooler’s family says racist barrage forced them out of town
A Colorado teen who says he was racially bullied at a Denver-area school district has left his middle school – and his family is planning to move out of town, the Denver Post reported.
Jeramiah Ganzy, 14, of Castle Rock, says he has “experienced repeated instances of discrimination, including students directing racist slurs at him and teachers unfairly targeting him for discipline,” the Post reported. It added the teen “was so fed up” that he emailed officials of the Douglas County School District. Ganzy had attended Castle Rock Middle School in the district.
“There had been a lot of bullying, of people calling me a monkey and a cotton picker,” Jeramiah told The Post in an interview. “I wanted something to happen. I sent the email in anger and frustration, hoping to get a response — and I didn’t.”
The post added: “Jeramiah also told his mother Lacey Ganzy about a Snapchat group chat with more than 80 Douglas County students, in which students repeatedly used racist slurs, called for the genocide of Black people, and threatened to shoot Black people and bring back the Holocaust.”
Lacey Ganzy said when the chat group members heard her son had shared their messages, they talked about lynching him, the Post reported.
“He can never go back to these schools,” she said. “They’re talking about lynching my son. I am not sending him back there. He is someone who thrives on education and is nominated for awards and is in AP classes… The options are for him to be homeschooled or move out of town.
“We are looking to get out of Castle Rock as quickly as possible. We do not feel safe. I grew up here, and I’m run out of town because my family decided to speak up about something that is not right.”
“The Ganzy family said Jeramiah’s experience with racism in Douglas County schools is not an isolated incident,” the Post reported. “Nevaeh Ganzy, Jeramiah’s 16-year-old sister, said she transferred to a charter school after a teacher at Douglas County High School made students debate whether they were for or against Jim Crow laws enabling racial segregation — and put her on the side supporting the laws.”
A school district spokesperson told the Post she could not discuss the case because of student privacy laws. She said the district is addressing the matter “consistent with the DCSD Student Code of Conduct and DCSD Board of Education policies,” the Post reported.
Castle Rock is 26 miles south of Denver and the Douglas County School District describes itself as the third-largest school district in the state with an enrollment of 63,000. The district is no stranger to these controversies, according to the Post report.
The Post reported that “the evening the Ganzy family spoke before the Douglas County school board was the same night the board discussed the district’s equity policy — a polarizing policy that’s been debated for more than a year and which lays out how the school district handles equity and diversity issues.
“Conservative school board members erroneously claimed the policy would prompt teaching critical race theory, and former superintendent Corey Wise claimed the policy and his advocacy for supporting students of color was at the heart of his firing, which a judge found to have been unlawful.”

Donald Trump launched a new campaign ad this week purporting to show that the United States is doing worse under President Biden than it did during his time in the White House, but as Forbes points out, the two most prominent photos in the ad are from Trump’s own presidency.
One of the photos showing a burning cop car was taken in Chicago on May 30, 2020. Another image shows migrants wading through knee-deep water with the caption, “Central American migrants cross the Suchiate River from Mexico to Guatemala, near Tecun Uman, Guatemala, Tuesday, Jan. 21, 2020″ — meaning that the people weren’t traveling north to the U.S.
Both photos were taken during Trump’s watch.
“The U.S. presidential election is still a year and a half away, but both Joe Biden and Donald Trump are already running ads,” writes Forbes’ Matt Novak. “The GOP is even running ads made completely with artificial intelligence. And if Trump’s current tactics are any indication, he’s going to keep lying as we get closer to election day.”
Biden launched his 2024 campaign last month, potentially setting up a repeat of the 2020 race against Trump, who is currently the overwhelming frontrunner among Republicans.
Polls show large numbers of Americans are unenthusiastic about Biden running again and age is one of the top concerns. He is the oldest person ever in the presidency and would be 82 by the time of a second term.
At a press conference in the White House, Biden said “I respect” people who question his suitability for the grueling job.
However, he said “people are going to find out, they are going to see a race and they are going to judge whether I have it or don’t have it.”
Asked if he thought he alone could beat Trump again, Biden said: “I may not be the only one, but I know him well, and I know the danger he presents to our democracy and we’ve been down this road before.”

Right-wing podcaster Charlie Kirk on Wednesday defended former Fox News host Tucker Carlson by claiming Black people fight by “jumping people” while white people do not.
In leaked text messages, Carlson was caught suggesting white men were more civilized than other races regarding street fights.
“Jumping a guy like that is dishonorable, obviously,” Carlson wrote of one fight he observed. “It’s not how white men fight.”
On his Wednesday show, Kirk insisted Carlson had done nothing wrong.
“If you want to actually get to the truth that Tucker was saying here is that there is a disturbing, this is a fact, no one wants to say this,” Kirk remarked. “There is a disturbing pattern of Blacks jumping people of all races in the urban corridors in America. That is a fact.”
“By the way, you know who the blacks are jumping more than anybody else?” he continued. “Asians in the streets. There are thousands of videos of blacks ganging up on their victims. It’s not racist to say that. It’s not racist to see pattern recognition and say, wow, we usually don’t see this.”
Kirk provided no data to back up his assertions. Instead, he insisted Carlson was not racist.
“He does not have a racist element of an entire being,” he said. “In fact, he deplores racism. He hates racism. He argues against the Black-only dormitory, the woke-ism, that the trend that has swept our entire nation.”
Kirk acknowledged that his attack on the Black community would result in backlash.
“And yes, I know this entire clip is gonna get cut up, and I hope it does,” he noted. “Because if you look at the urban trend that is happening in Chicago or Philadelphia, groups of Black teenagers are jumping individuals of all races and backgrounds. Thousands and thousands and thousands of videos.”

Revealed: Anti-LGBTQ group behind abortion pill ban lawsuit left 1000s of secret files on an open Google drive
An anti-LGBTQ hate group’s secret files reveal marketing “pushing schools to adopt junk science painting transgender youth as carriers of a pathological disorder,” and files detailing methods to indoctrinate pre-teens into a culture of “sexual purity” and opposing same-sex relationships.
The august-sounding American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is not the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). The American Academy of Pediatrics is the highly-respected and largest group of pediatricians in America. The American College of Pediatricians, classified as an anti-LGBTQ hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is one of several groups behind the lawsuit attempting a nationwide ban of mifepristone, better-known as the abortion pill.
“The American College of Pediatricians (ACPeds) is a fringe anti-LGBTQ hate group that masquerades as the premier U.S. association of pediatricians to push anti-LGBTQ junk science, primarily via far-right conservative media and filing amicus briefs in cases related to gay adoption and marriage equality,” according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
WIRED on Tuesday published a bombshell report revealing that the American College of Pediatricians “has suffered a significant data breach.”
“A link to an unsecured Google Drive published on the group’s website pointed users last week to a large cache of sensitive documents, including financial and tax records, membership rolls, and email exchanges spanning over a decade. The more than 10,000 documents lay bare the outsize influence of a small conservative organization working to lend a veneer of medical science to evangelical beliefs on parenting, sex, procreation, and gender.”
Indeed, ACPeds has a very small membership, reportedly just 700 people, whereas the American Academy of Pediatrics boasts 67,000 members.
WIRED found records going back to the group’s inception, which include files on how it tried to recruit members, which apparently has been a challenge during its 21 years.
Its primary directive was literally to target Christian physicians.
“One document outlining recruitment efforts states in bold, red letters: ‘TARGET CHRISTIAN MDs,” WIRED reports. “The ongoing recruitment of doctors and medical school students seen as holding Christian views has long been its top priority.”
Other files reveal a far more sinister focus: attacking transgender children.
WIRED found “volumes of literature crafted specifically to influence relationships between practicing pediatricians, parents, and their children. It includes reams of marketing material the College aims to distribute widely among public school officials. This includes pushing schools to adopt junk science painting transgender youth as carriers of a pathological disorder, one that’s capable of spontaneously causing others–à la the dancing plague–to adopt similar thoughts and behaviors.”
That marketing material apparently was based on a dubious research paper that hypothesized about something it called “rapid onset gender dysphoria,” which has been debunked, including in a recent study, according to Fenway Health.
Also found were files detailing ACPeds’s other efforts at indoctrination, including coaching parents on how to ply their children with a day of shopping and gifts, take them on an overnight trip, all with the intent of getting the children to embrace abstinence and oppose same-sex relationships.
“While the material is not expressly religious, it is clearly aimed at painting same-sex marriage as aberrant and immoral behavior,” WIRED reveals. “Physicians lobbied by the group are also told to urge patients to purchase Christian-based parenting guides, including one designed to help parents broach the topic of sex with their 11- and 12-year-old kids. The College suggests telling parents to plan a ‘special overnight trip,’ a pretext for instilling in their children sexual norms in line with evangelical practice. The group suggests telling parents to buy a tool called a ‘getaway kit,’ a series of workbooks that run around $54 online. The workbooks methodically walk the parents through the process of springing the topic, but only after a day-long charade of impromptu gift-giving and play.”
“These books are full of games and puzzles for the parent and child to cooperatively take on,” WIRED adds. “Throughout the process, the child slowly digests a concept of ‘sexual purity,’ lessons aided by oversimplified scripture and well-trodden Bible school parables.”
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s report on the American College of Pediatricians includes over a dozen comments by ACPeds officials and official statements from its publications. One likens LGBTQ people to pedophiles, one claims so-called trans activists “groom” children, and another dangerously states the “transgender movement is an opening for a totalitarian government.”
In a recent video, the American College of Pediatricians’ founders freely admit the group was created in response to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ support for same-sex marriage and parenting.
“The tipping point for me and my co-founding colleagues came when the AAP endorsed same-sex adoption, claiming that children reared by homosexual parents fared as well as those reared by their own biological heterosexual parents,” says co-founder and past ACPeds president Den Trumbull, MD, FCP.
Numerous studies prove that children raised by same-sex parents in fact fare as well as those raised by different-sex parents.
