There are plenty of good reasons to stand up for your rights. Numerous worthy causes that warrant shaking off the chains of oppression. An orange in a high school cafeteria is not one of them.
Martrell Terrell, in addition to having a spectacular name, was a basketball standout at Stroudsburg High in Eastern Pennsylvania. Last Thursday he made the mistake of entering the food service area of the cafeteria at lunch to get an orange, for a classmate who had dropped hers. What followed was an epic example of things escalating too far, a student body protest, and an administration trying to Orange Crush all dissent.
More terrible puns, after the jump.
