Clutch magazine reported the student body at Spondike's school is mostly black, a fact that became part of his online defence strategy, according to the Beacon Journal. He followed up his initial post with several more that said he wasn't a racist, one of which said he hears the N-word spoken "more than 25 times a day" by black people.

Amazing that she would seem to be around black people quite a bit and is still so dumb about that.  It's not the word itself, but the way it's used.  Meaning is derived from context.

May the ghost of George Carlin haunt her good this Halloween.

Slave owners mostly employed black people... so they couldn't have been racist either
 
2013-10-30 01:17:32 PM  
Doesn;t that actually make it worse?   I mean the "Most of my friends are black" defense is supposed to show how un-racist you are by showing you associate, voluntarily with "those people".  But to say "well in my job I am in a position of authority over man members of the group I just publicly denigrated with a racial slur", that's Not Helping your cause

Ahhh yes. Another one of those "I'm not racist, BUT [insert blatantly racist stuff here]" people.

Here a rule for life: If you ever feel compelled to say "I'm not a racist, but..."   just physically reach up and clamp your mouth shut because it's a dead lock gaurantee that the next thing out of your mouth will be horribly racist

Little known fact: Band directors, like ships and countries, are always referred to as "she."

I wonder if he will be re-tired.

I've noticed this weird phenomena where the closer you live/work around black people, the more racist you become.

D'oh!  Reading too fast and saw the reporter's face image.

Wasn't this an episode of The Boondocks?

There's a big thing about his suspension instead of firing, but no one cared to mention how well his students have been doing on testing. Chances are if they didn't fire the guy, he's probably getting the results the school actually cares about. Frankly they actually are perfectly willing to pretend to care about this kind of stuff, because ultimately it doesn't make a difference on their school funding: only the grades and # of disabled students matters to some of the higher ups.

reportedly in response to an incident with a teenager he saw trick-or-treating over the weekend.

Halloween is tomorrow. Is this an old story, or do people in Ohio just go trick-or-treating whenever the hell they want?

Spondike? A teacher named Spondike? How is it that this guy hasn't snapped years ago?

All Firestone teachers should know how to tread carefully

Just the black ones.
 
2013-10-30 02:42:59 PM  
Every group of people has some members that only the most derogatory term for that group can even begin to describe; using said term for these chosen members does not constitute bias against the group as a whole.
 
2013-10-30 02:43:37 PM  
You know who else is black???

If Halloween falls on a school night, many communities choose to have trick-or-treating the weekend prior.

At least she didn't call them fat.

Do these two people not get how egging works?
 
2013-10-30 02:46:38 PM  
Sounds like what happened to a teacher back in my high school. She told a student to read a poem in a "blacker" way. Though it happened the year after I graduated.

We have inner city buses that come to my neighborhood too, most of the kids are obnoxious and seem to be too old for trick or treating.

CSB: I used to work with a black guy who had a really, really racist uncle. Hated the white man. He would come up with an anti-white rant about ANYTHING. Terrance told me that him and his uncle were in the grocery store one day, when his uncle started just going-off about olives. Olives, of all things. "Why da GREEN olives gets ta be in a jar, but da BLACK olives gots ta be locked up in a can?!?"

Maybe it is because of real world experience instead of ivory tower ideals?

Listen to the conversations of the students at the school.  If you can go 10 minutes without hearing the N word, it would be a farking miracle.
 
2013-10-30 02:50:46 PM  
Why even bring up race at all in this case? Would he have been fine with a white dude peeing on his lawn?
 
2013-10-30 02:50:57 PM  
He shouldn't be fired for racism.  He should be fired for stupidity.
 
2013-10-30 02:51:11 PM  
he could have just said "I meant to type 'Tigger' but my finger slipped... ooopsie!"

Earlier this year, a Brooklyn teacher upset a student and her mother when the teacher asked the little girl, who was black, if she was a monkey


Well I'm convinced now, Ms. Reporter!

They may also move it to the 30th if there are older kids committing arson, vandalism, etc. on the 31st.  cf Detroit.

For real. And why is the white ball always striking the colored balls in billiards? RACISM.

And don't get me started on chess - the white pieces ALWAYS get to move first. How about giving the black pieces a turn, you racist?

"No! No! I always call a gang "she". It's like when you call a boat "she", or a hurricane "she"....  A girl, you can call a girl she, that's just one of the many things you can call she"

I think the point that he was trying to make is that there's black people and there's nubians. And he's ok with black people but apparently hates nubians. Does that make him racist or does it mean he just happens to agree with Chris Rock?
