Samantha Pawlucy kkk romney t-shirt

A Philadelphia student alleges that her geometry teacher told her that her Romney T-shirt is akin to wearing a KKK sheet, NBC 10 Philadelphia reports.

Samantha Pawlucy, a 16-year-old sophomore at Charles Carroll High School said that she wore a pink Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan T-shirt to school on Friday during the school’s no-uniform day. No one said anything about the T-shirt until she entered her geometry class, Pawlucy said.

When the teacher, who has not been named, saw the teen in the T-Shirt, she alleged attacked the teen for her political views.

“The teacher told me to get out of the classroom, I said no,” Samantha told NBC 10.

“She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked me… ‘are your parents Republican?’ I said, ‘I don’t know.’ She said that’s like her wearing a KKK shirt.”

Pawlucy says she was so embarrassed from the public attack that she was reluctant to tell her parents about the incident when she arrived home. Her parents called the principal and demanded that the teacher apologize for her remarks. The teacher reportedly apologized, saying her remarks were merely a joke.

“If it was a joke between two adults, I can take a joke like that but (Sam) didn’t know how to take it, she doesn’t understand, she actually thinks she did something wrong,” father Richard Pawlucy said.

“I can just picture her sitting there feeling ashamed for just wearing a T-shirt,” said her mother Christine Pawlucy. “That someone could spin that and throw it back on a 16-year-old child and make her feel so terrible.”

The teacher has been transferred to another classroom as the district investigates Pawlucy’s claims.
