Chicago Teacher Calls Students “NIGGERS” After They Ask Not To Be Called African-American


November 3, 2014 by The ReadyWriter


According to the Huffington post:

Last week, an Illinois substitute teacher reportedly called a group of four middle school girls the N-word after they asked not to be called African-American.

The incident occurred at Jay Stream Middle School in the town of Carol Stream during an eighth-grade social studies class. When interviewed by local news outlet WMAQ, student Mea Thompson, who is of Jamaican descent, said they asked the teacher not to call them African-American since none of them are from Africa.

“She said, ‘It’s the politically correct term.’ Then she said, ‘Well, back then you guys would be considered the N-word,'” Thompson said, recalling the exchange. “We were so shocked and we were like, ‘What? Excuse me? That’s not correct to call us that.’ She was like, ‘Well, back then that’s what African-Americans were called.’”

The teacher allegedly used the N-word several times over the 80-minute class period.

“After the shock and hurt, I’m angry,” Thompson’s mother, Shayna, said. “It’s a new world, and the people of the past that still hang onto hatred and bigotry don’t belong in this world anymore.”

When reached for comment, the District Superintendent William Shields said the events in the classroom are still unclear, but said the teacher would not be returning to the school.

    White folk believe that all blacks are African American…there are many blacks living in america who are not american citizens, they are here on work visa or on green card…they are not African american, they are Jamaican or atiguan or Ghanian, or Brazilian, they are all ARFICANS but not African american, …maybe African Jamaican or African Cuban or African Antiguan but not African American….
