Teacher accused of racism after pouring pencil shavings into student’s mouth

Kind of a stretch to call that a racist act. Only backing you've got there is that it's a black kid and a white teacher. It's an assumption, and a weak one.

What's no stretch at all is to call this incredibly stupid. Pouring pencil shavings into a kid's mouth? I'd fire her for that stunt regardless of what color anybody involved happens to be.

Calling every stupid thing that happens racism only makes real racism actions disappear in the cloud of bullshit like this. btw, I couldn't open your link so I had to go to their page to read the whole story http://dailycaller.com/2013/02/21/teacher-accused-of-racism-for-pouring-pencil-shavings-in-students-mouth/

One thing is for sure, you won't find bigotry in short supply in that comments section.

You can look at the act on its own and say "Well there's no racial connotation to pencil shavings," but we aren't privy to the overall environment, the history, comments the teacher may have made, and their attitude toward the child in the past. If you pretend you know this either was or wasn't racially motivated, you're just playing to your own biases.

I'd say there's like zero chance this was racially motivated- just read her reasoning

    • Sunday I was too annoyed and busy to post reasons he was wrong, by Monday he was telling everyone bye. Lol Honestly I think that was the most outraged I've ever gotten about anything on this forum. Even more than someone saying Jake Delorme sucks, back in 04 lol Its kind of mind-boggling someone who can read and write was truely blaming the girl for being rape. 
    • NFL Network is showing the Carolina / Giants game from our 2015 season.  I'm just watching the tail end where Beckham scored on Norman and it showed Cam's "I got this" nod. Man, what a great drive.  In 2015, we simply played with more urgency, hunger, and the drive to be the best. Cam had the confidence because everyone was playing as hard as they could.   Going into 2017, if this team can get hungry again, they are going to be fun to watch!  The more I think about it, the dominance of that team wasn't some kind of magic, but rather in will.  They would not be denied. The good news is that they can find the motivation again.  Nothing special.  I know we're all in draft mode, but I'm feeling pretty excited for the season.  I think our team will come back motivated!
