Black Student, Teacher Have Heated Debate Over Use of N*Word

06 May

A white teacher defended the use of the N-Word as being commoditized and meaningless anymore. A black student was having none of it.

Seems to me, it is a valid academic discussion. Here is hoping that the administration uses this as a teaching moment instead of penalizing either the Teacher or Students.

‘It’s f*cking racist’: Watch a black teen confront his white teacher who insists on using the N-word

Students angrily confronted a white New Orleans teacher who insisted he could use the most notorious racial slur because it had been drained of its meaning through overuse.

Video recorded Thursday by students at Ben Franklin High School, recently ranked as Louisiana’s top public high school, showed the permanent substitute teacher explaining his position as students angrily and profanely challenged him, reported The Times-Picayune.

“That’s racist as sh*t,” one black student says to the teacher, identified only as “Coach Ryan.” “Why can you not understand that it’s racist for a white man to say ‘n****r’ to a black man? It’s f*cking racist.”

The student then turns to a white classmate and asks if he’d ever use the racial slur, and the other boy agrees he would not, and the black teen then rhetorically asks the rest of his classmates if they would.

“F*ck no, they wouldn’t say ‘n****r,’” he tells the teacher.

The teacher asks the teen if he knows what a “commoditized word” means, and the student asks him to explain the term.

“It’s a word that’s used so many times that it doesn’t mean its original meaning,” the teacher says. “The word has been commoditized so that anyone can use it, and it’s not a negative connotation.”

The student argues that it would have a negative connotation for the teacher to use it to describe him, but the teacher asks why rappers use the racial slur in songs.

“If you say the word, it means friend, but if I say the word, it means something different,” the teacher says.

The teen says the meaning changes, based on the speaker’s race, and the teacher insists that’s not true.

“Not if you want the world to move on,” the teacher says. “If you want this world to be the way it was 50 years ago, then you’re true — you’re right.”

The teenager tries to explain the difference between the full word, n****r, and the truncated colloquialism, n***a.

“Nobody says n****r,” the teacher says, as the teen explodes and his classmates giggle nervously.

“Don’t f*cking say that,” the boy says. “You can’t say ‘n****r’ or ‘f*cking n****r’ … you’re my f*cking teacher, don’t say that sh*t.”

The teacher tries to argue that he could use the word as part of an academic lesson on its history, but the student angrily slams a book down on a desk and tells the teacher to stop using the racial slur.

“Please, it’s a word,” the teacher says. “You cannot go through life acting like a word can affect you.”

Students went after class to the principal’s office to stage a sit-in, but that turned into an impromptu, hour-long assembly on race and racism, the newspaper reported.

The school, which is overseen by the Orleans Parish School Board, is one of the most diverse in New Orleans — with 40 percent white students, 31 percent black, 16 percent Asian, 7 percent Hispanic and 6 percent multi-racial.

Another Franklin teacher also used a racial slur during this school year, students said on social media.

Franklin alumni started an online petition after the latest incident pledging to withhold donations until meaningful action was taken by the school.

The teacher was not on campus Thursday afternoon, and school officials said an investigation of the incident could take several days before any potential disciplinary action was taken.

    lol, precious useless snowflake with his panties in a bunch over his fake virtue signalling not having any power over the evil white man. A priceless nigga-puh-leeze moment.

      Snowflake or not – still a conversation that needs to be had.

        lol, nah – not a conversation that needs to be had. I started going in on skinheads the same weekend after I pulled the rug out on Robert Tilton in Dallas. As in, in the dumpster, behind the ministry. pulling the prayer request envelopes, bust your world type of direct personal intervention.

        So I was cerebellum deep into some Albert Hoffman chemistry down on deep ellum, when a skinhead stabbed a black man in the head with a screw driver at Dave’s Art Pawn Shop. I saved brah man’s life by directly interceding and not letting him pull the screw driver out.

        Trust and believe it was a very long 30 minutes until swole patrol showed up.

        Dallas PD swole patrol showed up pretty quick and saved lots of folks from themselves, but for me that was a transformative moment – that made isht personal. Thus my wrath of gawd on skinheads in my geographic proximity. I waged war until the testosterone and play by play subsided. (there were also some personal provocations back home)

        This is not rhetorical/conversational encounter. This is show-time and go-time isht which gets decided on the basis of purely Darwinian, killer-ape endowments. That conversational isht is for octogenarian over-stayer’s in congress and the academy….,

        I’ve lived a rather peaceful life, at least in this country…Other than putting a 12 Gage load of #8 Birdshot in the plump derriere of a miscreant who had the mis-impression that a 22 outranked a Sawed Off which could have been loaded with Double-Ought in my misspent youth. Po-Po found no evidence. I figure such things as picking birdshot out for a year prevent recidivism.

        Not gifted with great physical size, I tended to avoid those sorts of testosterone fueled disagreements, and used my head.

        Should have had you in Haiti with me. Sorry I couldn’t make that work. You might have enjoyed the part of tracking down how a certain drug cartel was trying to buy an airport, or the finding where certain money was hid in a Cayman Bank (down to the account number and access codes) and who it belonged to…

        Earning me a machine gunned car followed by a Police parade with 6 trucks loaded with guys with machine guns everywhere I went for a while.

        And I won’t even talk about some of the fun in Africa and the Middle East. Some of that still keeps me up at night.

        And no – I don’t work for a G’bment agency, although I try and keep relations on a positive level. Private enterprise sometimes gets nasty when you are dealing with big money and politics.

        I am out of that business now…At least until the Chumph goes down.

      Speaking of Snowflakes… Is that you?

      Now I have explained this to you before – so I’m going to give you the short vesrion. Hardheads killing other hardheads is the reality version of “Momma done kilt all the dumb puppies” Better Eugenics by Colt, Glock, and Remington.

      You want to fix the white supremacist’s problem – then stop the racial victimization game created by white supremacists in the first place, and go after the issue…

      Money and profitability.

      The white male suicide rate in this country is 5-8 times greater than the black male homicide rate. You see whidte folks running around talking about “defects” in their race?

      More whidte folks OD on opiates and their prescription substitures, than the grand total of all the murders in the US.

      There were a total of 15,696 murders in 2016, about half, 13,286 were committed by gun. About half, or 6,500 committed by black folks. Subtract the murders of white folks (600), and you come to 6,000. During 2015, drug overdoses accounted for 52,404 U.S. deaths, including 33,091 (63.1%) that involved an opioid.

      Counting just Opioid deaths whites accounted for 27,056, and blacks accounted for 2,741 or about 10%.,%22sort%22:%22asc%22%7D

      The rate of heroin use among white adults increased by 114% between 2004 and 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The rate among nonwhite adults remained relatively unchanged during that same period.

      White folks kill themselves…Black folks kill each other.

      The point being, there are close to 45,000,000 black folks in the US. About 6,000 of those folks commit murder.

      Why exactly would a black man suck white nationalist dick in the “blame game” on crime?

      There is much bigger game afoot.

    Then exterminate the 6000 on the next 3 day weekend and we got no beef. No different from the skinheads back in the day. Everything else is feminized conversation….,

      You do understand what happens when a guy like me goes on a tirade, C?

      It ain’t televised because there isn’t any TV, Telephone, Internet, Power, or even gas to put in your scooter.

      I am not anywhere near that sort of pissed off yet….At anybody.

    lol, that’s the kind of isht I like to say….,

    It’s important for folks in general to understand that when members of the Slice get pissed off, that the same knowledge, skills, and abilities that keep their roads rolling, can very easily be applied to making their roads not only stop, but literally cease to exist for a dark ages period of time…,
