Yesterday, Chesapeake Bay Girl Scout Troop 176 attended at a public meeting in Cecil County. The girls, ages 10 to 13, briefly about animal rights issues — the county’s animal control facility has been accused of mistreating animals — saying controversial things like “I felt really bad for the animals” and holding controversial signs like “save the animals.” And then adults–grown-ups!!–started yelling racial insults at the girls.
The girls, several of whom are black, were told to “go back to Baltimore where you belong” (they don’t live anywhere near Baltimore) and were called “animals.” The Girl Scout troop leader had to actually remind the adults attending the meeting “no racial comments, please.” (There’s a video clip of the end of the incident in the news broadcast below.)
Insulting 10-year-old Girl Scouts is pretty much the lowest of the low. This is pretty awful, Cecil County.
