    No he didn't...smh
    He tried to justify himself but there is no excuse for his behavior and it is shocking he has not been punished yet. If a black student would have called that white teacher a ******* or Cracka, he would be on deathrow by the end of the day...this just makes me sick

    What this teacher did is obviously wrong if you ask most Black people. But what he said about how the word is used by us is also true and that's proven in many of our discussions here. This teacher needs more than a suspension and mandate to attend diversity training classes. He knows full well what he said and why he said it. But, if it's wrong for him to say it and we don't like it, then we shouldn't say it either. I don't care how some people try to couch the word as though Black people have some right to refer to each other that way or that it means something different today than it did back in the day. People need to stop accepting the white man's BS and making it their own BS. Learn your history, understand what that word means and why it was used. Understand how it has contributed to our mental and emotional illness even today. You can't save yourself or become a better person if we continue to hold on to the very things that made us sick.

    Let the word GO!!!!

    I agree , we have to let this word die just as it lived within us
    in order to really fight any race about the use of it , this teacher need
    to be fired, he knew what he was doing and saying , there are so many
    blacks who treasure this word and use it like changing underwares
    Rappers love it , youngsters love it , addressing each other we use it
    it's a word the slave massa gave us and today we love it .
