You'll remember, I assume, the recent racist events surrounding this year's presidential campaign. Most recently, Barack Obama was hung in effigy at a Christian university (how Christian of them). Earlier, racist Obama Waffles at this year's Family Values Conference (how family-minded). Now, a Florida teacher has not only abused his position by speaking about political matters at a middle school, he also used the N-word to refer to Obama.
The 7th grade teacher, Greg Howard, asked his students what "change" stood for in relation to Obama. He spelled out the word as follows:
C - Come
H - Help
A - a
N - N*gger
G - Get
E - Elected
The school suspended Howard without pay for 10 days and removed him from his position at the school. However, according to school officials, he has not been fired --- as he should be --- he was instead transferred to Jackson Country Adult Education where he continues to teach.
As I said, this person should be fired, period. If you wish to register your opinion, you can call the following people:
