    i dragged a white boy out of the class at school and punched him.
    did i have a good reason to do that?
    yes i did.

    I'm embarrassed because at my age and poor health I'm not supposed to be doing that stuff any more.
    i swore that i would be non violent from now on.

    i got to keep myself under control.

    Brother..i am sure you had a very good reason to do this..but do you know the risks of that..such as possibly expulsion from school..you should think what the consequences are and the risks you take before acting violently...

    we have assigned work stations that we have to use.
    he decided that he would use mine today.
    that meant that i could do no work.

    after all efforts at persuasion failed, i forcibly removed him.

    the professor then had to ask the class to respect the work station assignments.

    no matter what the reason, i can't be street fighting any more.
    I'm too old to be a knuckle head.
    that's why i took him out in the hall.
    when security showed up, it was my word against his.

    WOWSERS!

    Well, hopefully he doesn't decide to sue you or press charges against you.

    I some words of wisdom would be appropriate in this situation brother James, but right now I can't think of any!

    He shouldn't have taken your workstation, but you're right you shouldn't have punched him.

    Still though, no use in crying over spilled milk. What's done is done; just hope and pray you won't receive any further consequences.

    You weren't wrong. 100% right. He obviously needed someone to pop him in his mouth.

    okay I thought of something

    I'm sure that many of us have had the desire to drag some white boy out of a room and punch him (I know I have). However as sister Nisa said, there are legal consequences (battery charges & expulsion) for getting physically violent with people. This is especially true if you were not threatened or in fear of your safety. Unfortunately brother James from what you described, it doesn't appear this was the case for you. Are there cameras on campus (most schools do have video equipment in the halls)? When security came did they inform you that this might be a possibility? If it is truly your word against his, all you can do at this point is avoid him from this point on. Hopefully he will take his butt whippin and leave you alone. If not, it could become a legal matter. I truly hope he decides to let it alone.
