WHY was this moved to rant?!
Seriously ATS? WTH!
This is a social situation for god's sake and it isn't the first time something like this has happened.
I thought rant was to rant about something that is pissing you off? This is an actual story! The teacher should be fired.
Please move this back.
Actually, I think this thread should be locked and johnleebarnes should be banned for trolling:
I can pick out at least 4 spots on this thread where he is using british slang like "muppet", "mate", etc. but he is blathering on and on about america and american freedoms.
just some brit pretending to be a yank to stir the racial pot. Not only should he be banned, I wish internet cowards like this were tracked down.edit on 17-5-2011 by aching_knuckles because: (no reason given)

If you cant say anything nice, then dont say anything at all.
So its okay to beat a white child if they use the N word.
So its okay for a black racial majority class to attack a white racial minority child simply as someone else alleged they heard the child say something racist.
So a majority black class of students are well within their rights to racially attack a racial minority child not for something they heard - but for something someone else said they heard - and which if they had not said what they said, none of the class would have known anyway.
That to physically attack an individual because of a racial slur is acceptable.
I think you need psychiartric help.
But hey its okay for blacks to call each other the N word and not beat each other.
Its also okay for blacks to racially abuse whites in rap records, and whites must not physcially retailate.
The ONLY evidence this minority race child said any derogatory terminology comes from a mentally deranged teacher who provoked a racial assault and then let it happen.
But hey - its always okay to beat whitey aint it.

When a student tells a teacher something in confidence, that teacher shouldn't run around and share it with people. Especially when she knew it would provoke a reaction. Wouldn't that be technically considered "inciting a riot"?
If blacks get so offended by the word "'n-word'" or "nigga" then why do they use it themselves? Do I think people of any other race should say it? It doesn't matter what I think, because to each his own. Do I think its ok to beat someone down for saying a word? Of course not.
If a black kid called a white kid a "cracker" or "honkey" would that give the white kids a right to beat the black kid down? No. So why do some of you on here consider this ok? I've read comments like "he got what he deserved" and the likes. People in this country have a right to free speech and freedom of expression. If you want to say the word than say it. We have this stigma in this country that a) only blacks can say it, and b) any other race deserves a beat down if THEY say it. That's wrong.
The only way this word will ever leave the English language is if people STOP saying it. I don't hear white people all day saying it. I can listen to one rap song and hear it said 1000 times. I can watch any black comic and hear it said 1000 times. You want the word to go away? You want white people to stop using it? THEN STOP USING IT YOURSELVES.
The word originated as a term used in a neutral context to refer to black people, as a variation of the Spanish/Portuguese noun negro, a descendant of the Latin adjective niger, meaning the color "black"
So, if this is the case as stated above. White people should be EXTREMELY offended by being called "whitey" no?
This teacher should get the maximum punishment allowed. As for the kids involved in the fight? Kids fight in school. It happens. I don't think they should be arrested. Suspended for a few days? Sure. But like I said, kids fight. The teacher should be fired for instigating the fight.
How is this "white kid" ever going to go back to that school now that this has happened?
*edit to note: Interesting that this forum actually censors the word and filters it to say "n-word". But yet it doesn't when I type cracker, honkey or whitey. Should I be offended???
