Teacher calls Jamaican students ‘n*gger’ after they object to ‘African-American’
CAROL STREAM, Ill. –
A substitute teacher in Carol Stream’s Jay Stream Middle School referred to some black students with the term some consider to be politically correct and they interrupted her, saying they were, in fact, Jamaican.
“All four of us that were sitting there got offended because none of us are from Africa. I’m Jamaican. So we said, ‘Can you please not call us that?” student Mea Thompson tells NBC Chicago.
