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


n-word1

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.

Conversations Of A Sistah, Police Shooting, Racial tension, racial unrest

Are we on the verge of another race riot? Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


RACE-RIOTS

There are some details and incidents about racial unrest recently here in the United States.

In April 1992, one of the nation’s largest bouts of racial violence came behind the acquittal of four Los Angeles police officers who were videotaped beating unarmed Rodney King in April 1992. When that unrest subsided, 53 people had been killed and more than 2,000 had been injured. Property damage was estimated at $1 billion dollars or more.

Over the past 30 years, all hell has broken loose on numerous occasions, the most recent of course being the headline-grabbing racial unrest in Ferguson, Missouri. Compared to previous incidents, Ferguson has been pretty rough both in terms of its duration and the number of arrests involved.

These racial unrest was roiled after 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed teen, who was black, was shot and killed by Darren Wilson, a white police officer, on Aug. 9.

If justice and fairness does not begin with the arrest of the police officer who killed Mike Brown, race riots might very well ensue again. Black males, who have recently been gunned down, wrestled down and/or killed by white men and/or white police officers who claim “reasonable fear” or “self-defense” as their defense, is becoming a weak or repeated cover.

White Woman Mad that Black Woman Joined Her Yoga Class


exerciseclass

Jen Caron, a self-described “skinny white girl,” enjoys yoga. Or at least she did—until a large black woman joined her yoga class.

A few weeks ago, as I settled into an exceptionally crowded midday class, a young, fairly heavy black woman put her mat down directly behind mine. It appeared she had never set foot in a yoga studio—she was glancing around anxiously, adjusting her clothes, looking wide-eyed and nervous. Within the first few minutes of gentle warm-up stretches, I saw the fear in her eyes snowball, turning into panic and then despair. Before we made it into our first downward dog, she had crouched down on her elbows and knees, head lowered close to the ground, trapped and vulnerable. She stayed there, staring, for the rest of the class.

Over the course of the next hour, I watched as her despair turned into resentment and then contempt. I felt it all directed toward me and my body.

Imagine: there you are, in yoga class, when all of a sudden, directly behind you, you sense a fairly heavy black woman who you can feel directing resentment directly at your body. Reality—or nightmare?

I say if you were focusing on your yoga class and not the large black woman behind you, it wouldn’t have mattered.

Homicide, Racist, Wrongful death

Home Owner Charged in the Shooting death of Renisha McBride

The home owner has been identified as Theodore Wafer, 54, and he faces charges of second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of Renisha McBride, who died of a gunshot wound to her face.

Theodore P. Wafer, 54, of Dearborn Heights, also faces a manslaughter charge in the death of Renisha McBride in the early-morning hours of Nov. 2, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said. McBride was shot in the face after police say they believe she was involved in a car accident nearby in Detroit and family members say she likely approached Wafer’s home for help.

Civil rights groups have called for a thorough investigation, saying they believe race was a factor in the shooting of McBride who was black, Wafer is white. Prosecutors insisted that race was not relevant.

“In this case, the charging decision has absolutely nothing to do with the race of the parties,” Worthy said Friday.

Evidence showed McBride knocked on the locked screen door, Worthy said, and that there was no sign of forced entry.

“These are the appropriate charges and he did not act in lawful self-defense,” Worthy said.

Wafer is not in custody and that prosecutors will ask him to turn himself in, Worthy said. An arraignment is scheduled for 2 p.m. The Associated Press tried to leave a message for Wafer’s attorney, Cheryl Carpenter, but her voicemail was full.

Newt Gets The Boot For Calling Obama, The Food Stamp President!


During Monday night’s GOP debate in Myrtle Beach, SC, presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called President Barack Obama “The Food Stamp President”. Gingrich insists that black kids don’t need handouts from President Obama — they need jobs. Newt is trying to imply that, because President Obama is African-American he’s giving blacks the very thing they know best: a free ride.

Gingrich says schoolchildren should be given janitorial jobs because, in his opinion, janitors in the NYC public school system earn way too much money. The average annual salary for a NYC public school janitor is $80,000, compared to a teacher who earns $45,000 annually.

According to the NY Daily News, Gingrich argued the best thing public schools could do for students – particularly black students – was to give them a broom.

“Can’t you see that this is viewed at a minimum as insulting to all Americans, but particularly to black Americans?” asked Fox News questioner Juan Williams, who is part Hispanic and black.

“No, I don’t see that,” Gingrich responded, with rousing applause from the majority white audience.

On Jan. 21, voters in South Carolina will vote to pick their choice for the Republican presidential candidate. Recent polls in the South show Gingrich running second behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney., who did not oppose one word out of Gingrich’s mouth. That means they’re two of a kind because silence brings consent.
