[ Bell ringsand indistinct chatter ]
[ Thumping ]
PC PRINCIPAL:[ Muffled ] Who was it?!
Somebody's about to gettheir asses kicked!
[ Children screaming ]
When I find outwho did this...
PC Principal is on the warpath!Run for your lives!
Oh, Jesus.Now what?
Who was it, huh?!
Somebody better fess upright now!
I'm gonna find outwho did this!
Was it you?
Was what me, sir?
I just saw a copyof the school newspaper
in which a studentused the word "retarded"
to refer to our cafeterialunch policy.
The word retarded does notbelong in our school!
Who is in chargeof the school paper?!
'Cause I'm about to breaktheir [bleep] legs!
Uh, he's in chargeof the school paper.
You gonna break his legs,PC Principal?
All right, uh, I-I guesswe haven't formally met before.
Uh, the reasonI need to talk with you, Jason,
is because ofa very important --
It's Jimmy, actually.My name is Jimmy, PC Principal.
All right, Jim,thank you.
I want to talk to you todayabout the use of the "R" word
in your school paper.
You see, the "R" wordis very bad.
Says me, all right?
And I know a thing or two
about the rights of peoplewith disabilities.
When you use the "R" wordto describe
the school's lunch policy,it can hurt people's hearts.
Can you understand that at all?
That was an Op-Ed piecein the paper
written by a first grader
who found the school lunchpolicy to be ridiculous,
and he thought "r-retarded" tobe the best word to describe it.
As the editor of the paper,I didn't think it was right
to censor the wordsthe student used.
Okay, well, from now on,I'm gonna need to approve
the school paper beforeyou hand it out, okay?
What'd you say?
You're new here,so you don't understand
how seriously I take my jobas editor of the school paper.
I don't allow ads,and I don't allow anything
that might t-t-taint the truthbehind what people are thinking.
I don't want peopleto be afraid of words
if it stops themfrom having a dialogue.
Look, I don't wantto get angry, okay?
Why? Are you uncomfortablearound people with disabilities?
That's okay.Lots of people are.
No, I'm not!I am very not uncomfortable.
All right, look --unless I can approve your paper,
it is not being distributedon campus. You got that?
I can't hand outthe school paper in school?
Not unless it is approved by me.Do you understand?
Yep. Got it.
Are You Going to Break HIS Legs?
The first meeting between Jimmy and PC Principal does not go well when they don’t see eye-to-eye on editorial direction of the school newspaper.
