A high school teacher was left covered in blood last week after he was punched by a male student over a “perceived racist remark,” in yet another incident of racial violence in an American classroom.
Now comes this attack on a nearly 70-year old teacher in Maryland.
The DailyMail reported:
The teacher at Forestville High in Maryland, who was not identified by officials but named as James Hemmen on social media, suffered minor injuries after being attacked by the teen.
The school characterized the incident last Thursday as a ‘misinterpretation of a comment’ during class but some students and parents said the teacher made a racially-insensitive remark.
The student is to be disciplined for the attack, according to NBC, with authorities adding that this was an isolated incident and there was no need to increase security at the school.
It was not clear on Tuesday if the student would face criminal charges over the attack.
Not clear? Look at the blood on that teacher. Doesn’t look so “minor,” does it? This is a clear assault by a thug who will likely occupy a prison cell in the not-so distant future.
So what was this horrible “racist comment” that this teacher dared to utter?
Neither the DailyMail, Washington Post, nor local NBC affiliate seemed to be curious. they just accepted the rationale, and the entire tone of their articles was that the evil Cracker somehow deserved it.
One parent justified the beating saying:
“If the comment was made that I was told was made, I can understand the pain and the anger in that student.”
Yet we aren’t told what it is. So I contacted 5 students online and one faculty member (who did not wish to be named), who told me that the teacher was reading a sentence that contained the following word: niggardly.
It is not a slur. It is an adjective, meaning, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, someone ungenerous with money or time, stingy. As in: “he served out the rations with a niggardly hand,” or “niggardly allowances from the Treasury.”
It has its origins in the 16th Century, having nothing whatsoever to do with the “N-word” and thought to have derived from Scandinavian “nigon,” meaning miser.
Now, none of this should make any difference whatsoever. It doesn’t matter what the teacher said, it does not give a student the right to beat the living crap out of him. Even if the teacher yelled the “N-word” right in class, the correct action is to report him to the principal, and get him fired, not clock him in the face.
And it is an outrage that there is even any debate over whether the kid should be charged.
Education is hard. Punching someone in the face because you are an ignorant thug who has no knowledge or interest in the English language is so much easier.
