Teacher under fire over unapproved middle school lesson on N-word

oh lort

EAG: ROCKWALL, Texas – A Texas middle school teacher was placed on administrative leave after she gave students an unapproved lesson on the N-word that some found offensive.

Utley Middle School seventh-grade social studies teacher Rebecca Cook recently handed out a 1997 article from the Chicago Reader to her students titled “The N-Word and How to Use It” in hopes of sparking a classroom discussion, CBS DFW reports.  more

  1. Since Barry took office it has become a far more commonly used word. Adroit application of the word’s usage has been both challenging and rewarding. Each day provides another set of multiple opportunities with which to express one’s self in a most pressure relieving manner. Thank the BLM movement for rejuvenating the word further.

  2. As with everything in life, context is everything. If the discussion was framed properly, I don’t see a problem with discussing how a word can be representative of how diversity affects everything in America, especially language and how the Left can appropriate it resulting in rules which allow one race to use a word with impunity while punishing everyone else. Simply ignoring a word because it makes people uncomfortable is how political correctness continues to flourish in our society unchecked. When I was in high school our social studies teacher initiated a discussion about gun control and how he was for it. He wanted to hear arguments from the students refuting his views. As this was in Eastern Oregon in 1980 in a ranching/logging community, he was nearly (trigger word warning) lynched when the parents heard about his views. At the hastily scheduled school board meeting the teacher said that the views he expressed in class were not necessarily his own, but only affected to spark classroom discussion. He was not disciplined officially, but I don’t recall him ever initiating that particular discussion in school ever again either. A student who was a year or two ahead of me then is now the sheriff of the county, you may have heard of him: https://www.bing.com/news/search?q=Sheriff+Glenn+Palmer+Grant+County+Oregon&qpvt=sheriff+glenn+palmer+grant+county+oregon&FORM=EWRE

  3. I think I like this phraseology better:

    As a protected word for a protected class, the “N” Word serves as the perfect symbol for a nation divided by diversity!

  4. “Therefore he whacked the old nigger mercilessly, while a big crowd of his people watched him, thunderstruck, till some man – I was told the chief’s son – in desperation at hearing the old chap yell, made a tentative jab with a spear at the white man – and of course it went quite easy between the shoulder blades.”

    (“Heart of Darkness,” Conrad)

    izlamo delenda est …

  5. well having grown up before political correctness came about cowing manhood in mainstream society, I personally have never had a problem using the word nigger, chink, spic, whop, pollock, kike, jap, fag, pervert, idiot, ass.

    but then I don’t get invited to many parties either.
