A private school in Fairfax County, Virginia, has confirmed that the allegations of a student who accused her classmates of cutting her hair and making racist insults were false.

Immanuel Christian School in Springfield said in a statement that it is going to enter a “long season of healing.”

The school said Monday that it is grateful to the police for their diligent work to investigate the allegations. Fairfax County police investigated the alleged assault.

The family of the 12-year-old student who made the accusations said in a statement via the school that they sincerely apologize to the accused boys and their parents for the pain and anxiety caused by the allegations.

The allegation was initially covered by many local news outlets and made national news.

Her family also apologized to the school and for the criticism it endured, and to the community that supported the girl. “We apologize for betraying your trust,” her family statement said.


The sixth-grade student, who is black, said three white classmates attacked her on the school’s playground on Sept. 23. She said they pinned her down against a slide and tried to cut her hair, while saying racist insults and calling her hair ugly.

The girl said she did not tell anyone what happened for two days, but eventually, her family told the school and got Fairfax County police involved.

When they learned what happened, the school issued a statement saying it was deeply disturbed by the allegations, and they cited a “zero tolerance” policy on bullying.

Is this the school Pence’s wife teaches? When I saw this story last week every time, media made sure they mentioned that.

Black racists like Sharpton, Lemon, Waters, Jackson Lee, etc. etc. have helped to propagandize many young Amari Allens with their bias rhetoric.

Now all that needs to be determined is what white people did to compel her to make these accusations.

From her appearance she has a bright future ahead: "You want fries with that?". It is almost as though the camera caught her practicing that line.

Long season of healing? What about a long season of litigation.

Are they going to expel the rotten lying kid or not?

Can’t these reporters ask obvious questions?

Whoa, wait a dang minute.

Earlier reports stated clearly that the boys CUT her hair.

THIS story says the boys **TRIED** to cut her hair.

This major detail clearly indicates the ATTEMPT failed.

No hair was actually cut.

Which in turn calls into question whether there was any attempt at all.

And the news media not only CHANGED the story, they RAN with it, and targeted & smeared Mrs. Pence in the process.

Thus, the media are complicit in the hoax, just as they were in the Jussie Smollett hoax.

Utterly vicious.

These racist liars should be thrown from their community. This girl didn’t come up with this on her own. I bet there were years of exposure to the racism of her racist loser family. The school. the police, the media all accepted the lies as truth. What nitwits! What about the 3 boys who were wrongly accused? Shouldn’t they receive some “reparations” from all of these liars and racists??? If nothing else, the girl should be ejected from the private school.
