Not from a teacher, not from music, TV, myself, or anyone else.

How can this teacher make the history clear if he can not use the words that were used back then? It's not like he's calling the people 'n-word's.
Utterly ridiculous and I sympathize with the teacher greatly.
Also ridiculous that my sentence was automatically edited to say "n-word" when that is not what I typed. It's just a word ffs.edit on 20-2-2012 by MzMorbid because: (no reason given)
Its not just a word. Brick, flying and stars are just words.... 'n-word' carries abusive history. Its very ignorant to say its just a word. I'm sure if you was of dark skin, you woulnt class 'n-word' as just a word
I agree a teacher needs to be able to say it, but im sure the teacher wasnt learning them that its just a word - if that was the case then i agree the teacher should of been suspended, but i doubt that was the matter.edit on 20-2-2012 by n00bUK because: (no reason given)edit on Mon Feb 20 2012 by DontTreadOnMe because: Mod Note: Do Not Evade the Automatic Censors – Please Review This Link.
