Michigan Middle School Teacher Reinstated After Suspension For Teaching Lesson On Blackface

Michigan Middle School Teacher Reinstated After Suspension For Teaching Lesson On Blackface

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 12:37:31 in Black Voices

“Before criticizing the teacher and assuming that he did something inappropriate, read the article from Monroe News. The showing and discussing of racism in and of itself is not racist. This teacher should not have been suspended.”

““As one who has been married for 45 years to my husband, I don’t think that it’s my role to stand in the street corner and start talking about the style of private life my husband and I have.”

Every time she walks down the street or goes anywhere publicly with her husband , her children, or the whole family, she is "talking" about her "style of private life." Anytime she discusses her marriage and family, she is "shoving things down our collective throats." As heterosexuals, we take that freedom for granted like breathing air. No one will challenge serving us in any restaurant, at any time based on our display of our "private life."”

“Since when are professional basketball players, fans, corporate America, and sportscasters the "blood thirsty left"? How do you know these folks are against the death penalty? How do you know what the "uber rich minorities" give to charity? You really have know idea... Sterling is the one with "racial issues" and he is getting help in understanding how the Americans feel about this issue...right or left...it is nonpartisan...”

“Like I said we need to get help for these people not flame them and well if they do not want help or seek some form of treatment then well flame on as they deserve it. We always hear that we need to give second chances for all these crimnals who have committed felonies but yet some guy makes some remarks and well we need to destroy him. And look at what the rapper know as snoop dog as said. He went on some insane racist rant for what? He is no better then the guy he was flaming”

“Bravo to the union and the players. They have handled this slap against their and our humanity with grace and power. Their allegiance is to themselves and their fans. On the other hand, it will be hard to focus on their game when their humanity has been questioned by someone who should have their back.”

“He doesn't believe in PARTS of the CRA....and he's RIGHT.  Business owners should be able to discriminate against anyone they want to.  It's THEIR business.  Besides, the market HURTS people who discriminate based on things like race, so they don't last.  
If you don't think people use are abusing the living schitt out of unemployment "benefits", then you've got problems.”

“leaders challenge their teams all the time...that is part of leadership. As far as the so-called ethnic clothing...whose call is it? btw...all kinds of people wear ponchos, so is it only a problem if someone who is Mexican wears one?”

“@db08,
Now there you go. Making sense again!”

“"leaders challenge their teams all the time".

That is not the kind of challenge I'm talking about, this is unconstructive. This is unprofessional and personal. Its kind of like pushing another person around to see how far they go. The company knew that if they fired her she will try to sue for racism, I wonder what was the last straw? I wonder was it her attitude? Was it her outfit?

"all kinds of people wear ponchos"

TBH most business people go to meetings to take each other serious, with their serious money theyre willing to invest. Not to go in there and find that the executive is mentally off. But really, you guys dont like it? Start your on business, then you could make your own rules.”

“Who was initially suspected in the Oklahoma bombing? And, in the end, the terrorists were white and Christian. Stereotyping and profiling may get the wrong person. In the 21st century, terrorists come in all colors and religion. It may be easier to put them in a simple box, but it does keep us safe.”
