High school student schools teacher on what Racism really is

Sometimes it is the students who educate the teacher…

This Student Expertly Schools Her White Male Teacher On Racism

Teaching students about the reality of racism is important, and one video has gone viral showing what can happen when a student believes it hasn’t been taught right.

The video, which was shared to Facebook on Thursday and has since received nearly 5 million views, captured a snippet of one student’s reaction to her teacher’s lesson plan on “What is racism?”

The student effectively schools the teacher, a white man, on some of the ways racism is perpetuated today beyond the discrimination against one’s skin color.

“You’re trying to say that it’s just race. No. Racism is based on the systematic oppression of people. White people have never suffered that,” the student said in the clip, highlighting the ways racism is also reflected through various social and political institutions.

“It’s kind of like you, as a white man, saying what is and what is not racist. And that’s what’s been happening throughout this century,” she added.

Meanwhile, the teacher, who is briefly shown in the video, stands silently and listens as she speaks. Moments later, when she’s done, the classroom erupts into applause praising the young woman for her commentary.

“Not in My House” Tamron Hall Smackdown of Republican Jim Carney

Damn! Don’t bring this crap into MY House!

MSNBC host Tamron Hall whups Rethugy rear end in this clip.

MSNBC’s Tamron Hall handily shut down guest Tim Carney on Friday, in an exchange so fiery that she immediately began trending on Twitter.

Hall asked Carney about Mitt Romney’s testy reaction to a reporter asking about marijuana on Thursday. Before addressing the question, he alleged that she and the rest of the media were focusing too much attention on the candidate’s past — including his bullying of two classmates in high school.

“What you’re doing here is a typical media trick,” Carney charged. “You hype up a story and justify the second-day coverage of the story.”

That set Hall off. She began to tell him that he didn’t have to “answer a single question” she asked or “accept the invitation to come on” and speak. Carney tried to interject, but she told him, “You’re kind of in my house,” and proceeded to smack him down for over a minute.

“You’re not gonna come on and insult me, you’re not gonna come on and insult the network when you knew what we were gonna talk about,” she concluded. “Done.” With that, she cut to another guest.

Hall immediately became a trending topic on Twitter, as people reacted to the segment. Viewers called her a “badass” and a “hero,” and said that she “schooled,” “filleted,” “checked” and “ripped a layer of skin off” Carney.

“Not in my House”…Indeed. Baby – you can have a pair of the BTx3, Made in America by Union labor, steel toed, Size 13 Brogans…

Anytime you want!
