Maryland Teacher Knocked Out, Bloodied by Black Student Who ‘Misinterpreted’ This Word as ‘Racist’

Misinterpreted?

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.

For weeks, TRN has been reporting on the upsurge of Black-on-White classroom attacks since Ferguson, including shocking assaults on elderly White teachers in New Jersey and Houston in January.

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.

  • alaskanativ

    Yes, the THUG mentality in minorities is getting out of hand. Where is the respect?

    • Michelle

      In minorities? You could have left it at the thug mentality is getting out of hand. You’re the reason it’s out of hand “in minorities”.

      • 1grayrebel

        It is minorities you stupid moron! If they had any sense at all they would know what the word means!

      • Dave Ventry

        It is in minorities…I just watched a documentary on bloods and crops who rioted and looted because some cops they thought broke the law weren’t arrested….totally missing the hypocrisy of the fact that they spend all day,everyday breaking the law

        • Jeremiah Bug Kliesing

          Bloods are at war with our crops now?

          • Dave Ventry

            Lol,whatever…crips then

        • Cedric Ian Anthony

          I think its funnier that the crops rioted.

        • dyhart

          Are you talking about Ferguson? It sure sounds like it but I suppose that could be another repeat of history. However no bloods or crips involved in that, at least not knowingly.

          • redpatriotmom

            Actually Michael Browns Stepfather is a well known documented member of the Bloods.

          • Thompson

            In my state, this is a serious offense, assault on anyone over 55 is a felony. No reason for this kind of crap! Jail time is what he needs!

          • Dave Ventry

            No,I’m taking about about LA years back….Ferguson is similar though,criminals rioting because they thought a cop treated a criminal unfairly

          You are wrong. pisslam is out of hand, it always has been. There is no radical pisslamic terrorism, there is just pisslam.

      • TotallyPeeved

      • Darrell Brooks

        Look closely. The one to the right of the screen is obviously a Vulcan. Notice he is the only one covering his ears and that’s not a gang sign he’s flashing. Live long and prosper!

      • TotallyPeeved

        Oooh, suburban white boys making fun of violent, feral NAPA’s. I don’t see any real guns, tats, money, or drugs in that picture.

  • Wiggle D

    Of course, the kid should be punished. Minorities and Majorities alike should both be punished for jumping the guns, especially in their own ignorance. Do they really think the English language belongs to them and that all similar sounding words automatically mean the same thing?

    • CE Vaughn

      What I fail to see and understand is why was he not smart enough to ask what the word meant before doing what he did

      • Heylottylotty

        What happened is just one more excuse for a “person of color” to abuse the law and do harm to a “person of not color”(???). Is is legal to use black and white any more? Senators “of color” still call Caucasian people “crackers” and why is that okay but to use the slang word for Negro will get you fired??? When will people wake up and realize we are humans of many colors, shapes, languages, and origins. Yet first and foremost humans. Once we can get over ourselves and our insecurities none of the names will matter. Then we can move on toward the so called “equality” I hear slung about so often.

        • Craig Bass

          Here again this PC stupidity correlates completely with the less than mentally evolved people. These people are as easy to manipulate as puppets on a string. With mere words you can force them to react on demand. When you realize this you understand how having a group in our society so easily “motivated” can work as an advantage as useful idiots, or as the left called hem at one time, useless eaters before they were cattle for votes. If they ever understand that their own reactions to a simple string of letters is exactly what gives the word it’s power over them they may just evolve.

          • Vonstaad

            Craig, I couldn’t have said it better. Thank you for your input.

      • Craig Bass

        Feral animals and savages only react. They do not posess the cognitive ability or mental functions of rational thought to respond with anything other than just basic primitive reactionary responses.

      • Jim Denney

        I believe the polite term is “poor impulse control.”

      • rollin in my chair

        It’s probably the only word this kid ever heard in any class.

      • vickybevis

        And there, CE Vaughn, lies the crux of the story. Apparently the student never learned to “Act, don’t React.” He & a group of his “peers” could have gone to the office & complained. And after everyone there quit laughing, or shaking their heads, someone MIGHT have explained the word to him.

  • BuckTard

    Only an ignorant person would misinterpret that comment

    • Lou McKellar

      A black congresswoman also jumped on that word when it was used the House.

      • 1grayrebel

        It’s because they’re dumb!

      • kattywompas1

        Hmmm….. Bet you money the Congresswoman was a “minority” also. Sad that she doesn’t educate herself before opening her mouth. I try to learn something new everyday. I encourage my children and grandchildren to do the same. We should grow everyday we are alive. More so if we are in the position that we are to make laws. It shows her ignorance that she jumps to conclusions before looking up a word first. How do people continue to vote for someone so ignorant.

      • Karen

        Was it Sheila Jackson Lee? Because yes, she is quite ignorant. But in our defense (TX) she is actually from Queens,New York.

        • Gioiel

          She is about as ignorant as it gets! And one of the biggest racists I have ever had the displeasure of listening to. She is definitely not from Texas.

        • avengeflipper

          Sheila Jackson Lee is my hero, if it weren’t for her I’d have no idea America was 400 years old and that we’ve been living under the constitution since the early 1600’s or something. Long live Sheila. She also taught me that sensible gun legislation would prevent gangbangers……

    • jmdsc1 .

      We had a councilman have a racially charged fit/diatribe when the words “black hole” were used. (This councilman is now under indictment for several things.) I swear people are looking for reasons to be offended.

      • Gioiel

        He must be a black hole.

  • mike

    So what the story is saying is this under educated student didn’t know the definition of a word that was used but immediately reacted like the definition of the word he thought he heard.

    • ElmerJFudd

      Look at the idiot that got upset about “A chink in the armor”.

      • afftongrown

        Before you know it, they’ll have to remove all the crackers from the shelves in the grocery stores, as not to offend white America!

        • stone cruiser

          democrackers would never allow that.

          • Florida Rebel

            Whoa…. two different species… does that even exist?

        • ElmerJFudd

          What about all the “dark chocolate”?? Also whites don’t get upset about words. (usually)

          • Gary ONeill

            I’m thinking of suing the Restaurant chain “Cracker Barrel”…

          • I had a coworker who referred to a white woman as a cracker barrel b! $@h once.
            He was semi literate and eventually fired.
            So sad the ignorant …

            Don’t forget dark magic coffee

          • Kathleen J Chansley

            What about “white chocolate”??

          • ElmerJFudd

            Wasn’t there a basketball player that called himself that?? Liberals went ballistic

          • Kathleen J Chansley

            Elmer, I do not know of any basketball player that used white chocolate as his nick name. I thought “dark chocolate” why not “white chocolate” for me. I am a cracker and I love white chocolate.

          • ElmerJFudd

            It was Jason Williams

        • Lili Dee

          What is in you that you make a remark like that? Is it the same thing that was in the boy? Is it ignorance? Do you enjoy being cruel or uncaring to people? I am seriously asking you. Should everyone jump to fight immediately or jump to slander others? Do you think I ask you these questions because I am white? or because i am human…I’m sure you’ll respond with a rant. I know you will. Because you had no reason for your comment above, it obviously takes no reason at all to become enraged. White America is not offended ….White America, as I know it, is asking the same questions I am and just like me, will probably still only be met back with rage. I did not enslave your people. I wasn’t alive. Nor were you. But…every race has been enslaved at some time in the world’s history. I have ancestors who were slaves. If you want to unload your anger on innocent people, go to Portugal where slavery was the big business – and Great Britain, and find your ancestral enslaving progeny there. Otherwise, why not try just being a human being and stop seeing the differences that are only skin deep.

          • LOL speaking of a “rant”. Look up “word salad”! ”

            word salad

            /word sal·ad/ (werd sal´ad) a meaningless mixture of words and phrases characteristic of advanced schizophrenia.

            Also don’t forget who the sellers were… Africans themselves selling their own countrymen!! It was a class thing there not a racial thing!

          • William Menikheim

            It wasn’t blacks selling their countrymen. There wer no countries in Africa at that time. Just areas ruled by tribal chiefs. One tribe would attack another and capture some men and women and then sell them to the Portugal slave traders who then sold them to the English in the colonies. Some of the colonial buyers were (SHOCK) black.

          • JO

            William, I think it’s funny that you are doing the same this this “black” kid did. You, apparently, don’t know the definition of “countrymen”. How quickly we all judge, yet do not learn. I hope you learn from this. Here you go:

            1.

            a person from the same country or region as someone else.

            “she followed in the tradition of her countrymen”

            synonyms:compatriot, fellow citizen

            “the traditions of his countrymen”

            2.

            a man living or born in a rural area.

            “he was a complete countryman, with a pronounced affinity with nature”

            synonyms:country dweller, country cousin, son/daughter of the soil, farmer; More

            rustic, yokel, (country) bumpkin, peasant, provincial;

            informalhayseed, hick, hillbilly, rube;

          • Hades Miller

            That’s the same kind of weaselwording that keeps people from describing dolphin ‘sexual coercion’ as ‘dolphin rape,’ all because of subjective-enabling technicalities.
            No one likes lawyers, for this very reason, because they actively work to dismiss some fairly self-evident things. If a tribe tends to live in a geographic region, and exercises military and political power over that region, then how are they not a country? Are you going to tell me that Mongolia isn’t a country, using this logic, or is it more politically expedient to doublethink and accept this reality for one case, and deny it for another?

          • William Menikheim

            Hades, you are beating a dead horse. If you will look, I have already acknowledged my error and recanted. But thanks for your font of knowledge on the subject.

            I’m pretty sure she was being sarcastic. White America isn’t allowed to be offended, but even if it were, most are rarely offended by something as stupid as a word. Sticks and stones.

          • afftongrown

            I am white, and neither racist, ignorant or uncaring. I have just become tired of people taking out their frustrations on others in the name of racial inequality. I live in St. Louis. and experienced the melee in Ferguson.

          • Tiredofshenanigans

            You are not white. Quit trying to partake in a conversation that you know nothing about. Educate yourself and try to lead your people out of anger and hatred and into law-abiding, productive, tax paying peaceful people. Help yourself and your people to learn from history rather than using it as an excuse for horrendous behavior. Help your people do what they haven’t been able to do since inception, evolve.
            If you were white, you wouldn’t call people crackers or claim pride in watching the destruction of a city in the name of a (albeit) young, violent criminal. Now, go back to pretending you’ve been wronged and educate yourself and those you claim to care about…

          • afftongrown

            I’m sorry to tell you, but I was born white and with hair as white as snow! Continue to be white, although the hair has tended to darken a bit with age! Who are you to determine what race people belong to?

            Thank you. I agree completely. Sorry if I was a sheeple, but sometimes it’s hard to pick up on ‘tone’ when we are just writing stuff. So I apologize if I was all oversensitive. lol. There’s so much going on and I’m glad we can all get on here and discuss things.

          • joex51

            it was sarcasm look at her picture she is white….

          • Kevin

            She was being sarcastic, I’m sure. What she seemed to be getting at was that because some people take everything offensively, pretty soon common, ordinary words like cracker will no longer have their original meaning, but only the modern slang meaning. Hence the word cracker, normally a tasty snack, will only be a derogatory term for white people. White people would then be offended by the word, and start assaulting anyone or anything using it. Does that make sense now?

          • afftongrown

            Thank you, Kevin! You apparantly understood my sarcastic response! Hopefully, after your response they will undersand it was merely a tongue- in- cheek response from a “white woman! (cracker)

        • CombatVette

          I’m not sure if you are aware, but the term “cracker” originally referred to a person cracking a whip, it had nothing to do with bread products or skin color.

          • Florida Rebel

            THANK YOU! I am so sick of people being upset/offended by words they have no understanding of. It doesn’t bother me in the least when someone calls me a “cracker”. Nor does it bother me when someone calls me a “guinea” [some get real upset over that one], wop, dago, etc, etc. I am comfortable enough with myself to not let these things bother me. Others that don’t know me can call me whatever they wish. I know who I am, as do my friends, so why would I let someone that I mean nothing to or who means nothing to me, get under my skin. In the grand scheme of things and in the events of my life, those people do not even make it to the list of things that matter. [I’m still waiting for someone to add “Gringo” to the list of offensive things that can’t be said….. haha!]

            If I were the teacher, I would prefer charges against the little sh*t. Even if the school board told me not to do it. I can always retire (he is 70) and draw a disability from the injuries sustained from the assault. I’d sue the school board too for setting the climate that would allow this kind of misbehavior. Lets not leave out the parents and child that assaulted me. I’m sure I could find a money hungry lawyer that could find hundreds of things to sue about and an equal number of people to sue. PARTY time in the old Courthouse!!

          • Elissa Masters

            If everyone involved was sitting behind a screen, everyone’s race hidden, and this incident was told to 100 people, I’ll bet 99 of them would want the thug who assaulted a 70 year old arrested. And I’ll bet 99 of them would sue. It’s not about race. It’s not OK for a teenager to beat the crap out of a senior citizen. No matter what he thought he heard.

          • Stephanie Magera Carron

            The point is that the word the teacher said had nothing to do with the word that was assumed he had said..

            did you know that the term “cracker” actually refers to Florida cowboys who use a mixture of whips and dogs to herd cattle.

          • CombatVette

            Agreed, there are a couple different thoughts on the actual origin. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cracker_%28pejorative%29

            there are cowboys in Florida???

          • Charlie

            Actually Shakespeare used the term, and prior to him there is reference from writings from the 1590’s in which one character refers to the other as a cracker. The common meaning at the time was an insult for an obnoxious bloviator.

            Georgia cracker was a whip wielding teamster, usually of Irish descent. Ironically, many Irish were brought here as slaves or indentured servants. Cracker Barrel is named for a tradition in country stores. In the old days crackers were delivered in barrels. Stores sold them by weight. Most stores would keep an open barrel around, and children were given as much as they could hold in one hand. Cracker Barrel restaurant has been boycotted for this “racist” name. During testimony given by Trayvon Martin’s ghetto fabulous girlfriend, she described Zimmerman as a “creepy ass cracker.” If there is any justice left in this country, the student who beat the teacher should have the word “niggardly” tattooed on his forehead.

          don’t tell niggers that because they think we get offend by words like they do

          I think Us “crackers” are above this!! We don’t need to remove our crackers from the shelves, they have been here for many many years and we are never going away!!!

        • O’Shea

          The thing is, white people don’t care, you can call a white man every name in the book and most of the time it won’t matter. Why? Because we are smart enough to know that what some random ignorant person thinks or says about us doesn’t affect us. No one ever told these people “sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me”. It’s sad really these people go through day to day life with the maturity level of 3 year Olds and we are expected to hold our tongues as to not offend them and their fragile egos. 9 time out of 10, I guarantee, the person want being racist the offended party was just dumbfoundingly stupid.

        • Elissa Masters

          Why? I don’t recall white America behaving like animals when confronted with perceived injustice. When O.J. was acquitted of the murder of two white people, there were no riots. However, I think some people were not reelected as a result. When Rodney King was beaten, there were riots, people burned their own neighborhood, set the palm trees lining the freeway on fire, and 58 inner city residents died in the chaos. They really showed those palm trees.

    • NickleSlick

      Any word no matter how proper or educated can be used out of context. Did the thought ever occur to you that it wasn’t the word itself but the context and tone with which he used it in was the reason he got the crap knocked out his smug trying to be slick behind

      • Donna24

        No matter what the circumstances, what this student did was a crime.

      • DaBear

        There is no way you can know that the word was used out of context. Why are you trying to muddy the waters with this weak and pathetic argument?

      • Vonstaad

        NickleSlick, prove your statement by using “niggardly” in a correct, yet out-of- context, manner. I am not sure it can be out-of-context and still be properly used. If you cannot give an example, your entire post is simply an excuse for someone else’s ignorance.

        • Marti

          I agree, the actual meaning of the word ‘niggardly’ is a critical observation of someone else’s generosity. Slick, seems to imply that typically when it’s used..it’s a compliment and that in this instance, the teacher was tried to ‘sneak’ it into a conversation.

          If Slick was actually being honest, he would have said…the teacher used a word that might sound offensive but only an ignorant and otherwise ill informed person believe that it’s a derivative of the word “n*****”. Obviously, Slick must think that all the students were a bunch of idiots and the teacher was trying to get one over on them by using a word correctly.

      • Florida Rebel

        I realize that you were there and saw the entire incident and know exactly how it was used and the tone as well as his “smug” expression — just as most 70 year old teachers try to be slick when teaching. You, by your comment, are obviously part of the problem. I don’t know if you are black or white [and personally, I don’t care], but just the fact that you think that the white teacher was in the wrong and the black thug might be justified shows that there is a double standard and you are doing all you can to promote it.

      • TotallyPeeved

        Did the thought ever occur to you that you are stupid?

      • Charlie

        Dear God, do you really believe that “context and tone” (not that you have any idea what the context or tone was) gives some the right to lay hands on another, much less beat the crap out of a 70 year old man?

      • Marti

        Going back to the ACTUAL meaning”someone ungenerous with money or time, stingy.” the CONTEXT you speed of would have couched the phrase in an unfavorable light.

    • Bonnie

      That is great mike!!!

    • claycountymom

      that’s what happens when morons raise morons

  • Kevin

    This shows the ignorance of this kid of his low educational level of what words really mean. I see that this kid’s future will be dark for him oh wait I guess that will be a racist term I just used as well saying a dark future ahead for anyone who shows lack of intelligence and education. If no charges are brought upon the student then the teacher should sue the district for a hostile work environment.

    • cam_jobs

      Ok, just how many people nationally actually know that niggardly isn’t a racial slur? Really? How could you expect an inner city youth to know that? Most inner city youth have their own street dialect anyway, and call each other nigga… if someone uses the word niggardly, what are they going to think?

      • Trish

        I’m not saying what Kevin said was right…but regardless of what the student “thought” it meant, does that really give him the right to flat out punch the teacher? I think not. We don’t settle our differences with violence.

        • avengeflipper

          Exactly, when did we start teaching kids it was okay to punch teachers you didn’t agree with.

          • John

            Ever since our government threw God out of our schools!

      • Alan

        Apparently the teacher was attempting to teach what the word “niggardly” meant by using it in a sentence in class. Before he could get his point across, he was beaten unconscious by an ignorant thug refusing to learn.

      • warpmine

        You would thing the spelling was “niggerly” but then so few of those kids can spell let alone write.

        I’m beginning to think that educating these barbarians is a colossal waste of time. Perhaps individuals can be educated but in a different setting. Classroom in front of there peers might be part of the problem. Must take them out of their comfortable surroundings, the ‘hood local school.

        Oh, who am I kidding, the parents if you can use that term, is the main problem. Thanks in large part to progressive policy brought to you and for you by ignorant “feeling” progressives.

        • smarterthanyou

      • Rick Vandiver

        They SHOULD be in the “learning” mode ! PAY attention, discuss the problem, not fly off the handle and assault the teacher !! No excuse for this thug’s actions !

        • Denise Wehrle

          I agree. Raise your hand and ask what the teacher meant by that.

      • Tricia Cleveland King

        Just so you know cam_jobs, Forestville is not inner city. It’s in Prince George’s county MD. So maybe if this youth had been paying attention in class, he would’ve learned what niggardly meant. It very well could’ve been the common core word of the day. So please, don’t make excuses for this child.

        • godbilla

          PG County is not too far away from “the inner city” life style.

        • Denise Wehrle

          (snickers at the common core remark)

      • Gooseontheloose

        “….what are they going to think?” That is clearly an activity too cumbersome for today’s youth.

      • Matt

        Uh, what the hell is wrong is with raising your hand and asking the teacher the meaning, nature or etymological root of a word before reacting at all? We are “f”ing doomed.

      • Donna24

        If they call each other n!##@, then they should stop if they are supposedly so offended. Just an excuse for violence.

      • avengeflipper

        Niggardly is a vocabulary word and it was said by a teacher who was probably trying to teach him what it meant. Maybe they should stop being dumba… and pay attention in class. Or would that be too much to ask?

      • Nadiam57

        The teacher was reading, not making a comment…and regardless of anything you don’t respond with violence…this boy more than likely has jail or worse in his future…

      • mary witte

        I would think it meant cheap and penny pinching, any word that you perceive as racist does not give you the right to beat some one up, the kids reaction reflects his up bringing by ignorant parents

      • Lorelle Hatcher

        I knew the definition of the word, but I was educated before the liberals took over public education.

      • Florida Rebel

        I must have gone to a great elementary school because I have known the meaning of that word since I was a kid. Just because someone is an “inner city youth”, doesn’t mean they can’t learn. Maybe they should pay more attention to what is being taught in the classrooms instead of the streets.

      • Stephanie Magera Carron

        I actually learned that in high school in a similar situation (with a completely different outcome). Not that its common but I actually did..

      • TotallyPeeved

        They are incapable of thinking. They run on primitive, violent, tribal emotions. They are violent as hell and they are NOT LIKE US.

    • warpmine

      What about the ignorant parent who didn’t know the word either. Back to school for her to learn that and the other lessons you don’t become violent because a word was spoken.

      • Carl

        everyone these days has smart phones and we know how to use Google for definitions ..

        • warpmine

          Errr, that’s true but so few use them for simple tasks. More use them for sports scores, spacebook, YouTube, twitter, you know all the important things in life, LOL.

    The “Perpetual Victim Mentality” and lack of any form of intelligence, is what motivates these Apes to continue the destruction of our school system.

Violence and Free sh*t.

  • Belinda

    ok I read the story and I have to say ok maybe the student needs to be punished but…. lets look at this on the other coin, the N word has been used by whites so long ago and most blacks back then associated that word with calling them out of there names, you cannot actually blame a black student for feeling that the word was racially motivated its only because most of us black people have been programmed with that word since most of us was children, and being called that word when we where kids automatically gives us a since of “what did you call me” kind of reaction. Now most young blacks now look at that word and yes still find it offensive but… I will say that its now used in a way both as a racially motivated word and at the same time from non blacks as just a word to use to call each other. I know because I have been witnessed to it online by many young men and women who actually called each other the N word and was not even black! Yes the young man needs to be punished like I said but…. you have to look at the deeper perspective if the word to be able to understand the mind of most of us black people.
    .

    • Kelly Clark

      I don’t care what the teacher called him. I don’t care if he was white or orange. This is NOT a reaction that anyone should have for being called a name. Everyone has been called derogatory names at some point in their life. It does not give you permission to act out violently.

    • pj

      It isn’t ok to hit your teacher. Period. It isn’t ok to hit anyone because you are angry. Period. Someone can be angry or upset or whatever but it simply isn’t ok to punch someone because you are upset. It is called civility, manners and appropriate behavior.

    • LadyWolf

      If that student didn’t know what he said and he didn’t know what the word meant he should have either looked it up or asked the teacher what it meant. He had no business touching that teacher. And as the story said he was reading a sentence with the word in it so he wasn’t even calling him any names. And if anyone has ever called him the N word it would have been by his black friends.

    • Wiggle D

      That doesn’t justify physical violence against the teacher. The student could have asked the teacher for clarity on what was said and then voice complaints to the proper team if it was deemed unfit for the classroom.

    • kattywompas1

      I don’t like being called a cracker. So what? Your skin color does not give you the right to be any more offended than a person of another skin color. Or the right to assault anyone because they hurt your feelings. With that mentality you will send your children to prison.

      • Gioiel

    • Robert E.

      Belinda, the root of the problem is two fold. First he did not understand what the word meant and should have asked for clarification. Second, he should not have resorted to violence. This student should be made to pay for this attack, not in retribution, but to show him that there are dire results for our actions. The over all problem is that for the last 30 years, kids have been brought up with the, “Its all right” attitude.

    • Edwrad D Salk

      #You_cannot_blame_a_black_student? Why not?? Accountability and acting responsibly can make the difference in that kid’s future…What’s truly sad is that there’s a complete lack of leadership in the black community to show the kid the difference…

    • Heylottylotty

      It is so amazing that people fall into the rhetoric of political correctness. From the time I was old enough to play outside I heard black kids call each other by that slang word. There are songs out by rappers that use it. Black commedians use it. I worked in Ohio and Rhode Island a few decades ago and the blacks in both locations used it constantly when “jive talking” with each other. Suddenly it is a “hate word” made up by whites to degradate blacks??? What happened? Could it be part of a larger plan to destroy our entire nation by racial bias? Dr. King spent most of his life paving the way for racial equality.. Look what has happened in just a few years of political correctness. Shame on us all.

Grown-up children were never taught to respect anything other than themselves, so they don’t respond to reasoning, either…only to getting their butts handed to them, preferably in public.

    It seems to me whether the student is disciplined or not the teacher should have the right to press charges to get the student arrested to pay for the crime of assault. The law has been broken – the student should be arrested. PERIOD!!

    I am part black, part indian, part white. And all 3 parts would got their butt beat by my mom if I had ever thought to raise my hand against an old person. It is called respect. I have been called all kinds of names in my life time & I still have not raised my hand against any body. I don’t care what color or shape or species you are, you should not act out of violence because you do not like what other people say. It’s called having respect for other’s & for yourself. Maybe they don’t know what it is to respect themselves or other’s, but it doesn’t mean you should sink to their level. Name calling doesn’t help anyone either. Try & rise about the petty thoughts of other’s.

    I’m currently taking a class in communication and this week topic is the power of words. The professor has looking at strategies of expanding our vocabulary. I’ve seen this word used in older books. If people would take the time and read they would expand their vocabularies. Now I’ve been out of high school now for 18 years, but I can remember the teachers given us reading assignments and asking us for papers about what we read and any words that we had to look up to find the out what they meant. Not all words are racist, hateful and spiteful just because they sound close to a word that is. Just like the “chink in the armor” article, chink was long used in describing a problem in armor and such. The word chinking is for the process of sealing the space between the logs in a log cabin The lack of education in our society is going to be our undoing. I foresee a society that can’t even say “Hi” to another person with someone else being offended.

    Come on Gina Cassini, you are supposed to be a journalist. Do a little research before writing an article. The assault on the Houston teacher happened in MAY of 2014, not last month. For some reason Brooke Bosca of Top Right News just decided to write an article about it last month, and failed to mention that it happened in May of the previous year. The shooting in Ferguson occurred in August of 2014, so the incident in Houston does NOT qualify as part of your perceived “upsurge of Black-on-White classroom attacks since Ferguson.” I have been reading TRN articles for months, but now I am starting to have serious doubts about the veracity of the articles, as it appears some writers have no problem bending the truth to fit their narrative.

  • LInda Rowlett

  • frillbot

    As I began to read the article, ‘niggardly’ was the word that came to mind……long before I reached the end. I’ve used the word several times myself……usually when complaining about the ‘niggardly’ service I’ve received from assorted cable companies……or the portion size of something I’ve ordered in a restaurant. As in ( for example…..at a McDonald’s ) “DON’T be so ‘niggardly’ with the french fries! Fill the f#@king container to the top!” I also use the word a LOT when referring to politicians.

  • Peace Love Bunny

  • Deb

    This is all part of the not surprising reality from decades of students insisting on justification for every little factoid they are asked to learn. If they would spend even a fraction of time learning that they spend trying to avoid learning, they would know so much more. If I cannot convince my students why they need a particular fact, they simply won’t learn it. Period. I’m so fed up with this that I’m changing fields and getting out of education as soon as I can arrange it. I’ve traveled all over the world, speak several languages, and have lived in four countries. America is the only country where people pride themselves in not ever having read a book and who work diligently to stay ignorant. They’ve got it bass-ackwards.

  • Gunny D

    So, the message is, if a student gets upset with a teacher, he or she is justified in assaulting the teacher. Great lesson. Lets see how the knowledge continues to spread and is accepted. The kid should go to jail for assault and battery. There’s no justification for this. Good luck you poor underpaid teachers. I’d look for other work…

  • Dave

    I am a retired teacher and I think I have come across the word niggardly once maybe twice. I do not hold not knowing the word against him, BUT HIS ACTIONS are the real problem where did the thug learn that beating bloody a 70 year old was the answer to anything?

    • avengeflipper

      Niggardly is a word I’ve come into contact with many times. I’ve only been teaching 7 years. He automatically assumed racism and assaulted a teacher. That means he should go to prison. I think we agree on that.

  • Jeffrey Smith

    It would be racist to let this thug off. Rule of thumb always works here. If it was a 70 year old black teacher that mentioned a honking car and a white student clocked him for thinking he said honky, what do you think would have happened to the white teen? Do you think the school or the community would let it slide? No way.

  • Herman Vogel

He had NO RIGHT to beat up on the teacher, and yes like it also said, that thug of a student will most probably be in prison in the near future..

  • PeteyGLaFlare

    “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 fact that some students and parents still don’t understand it was not a racist remark is just sad. The DailyMail made it sound like there was a level of subjectivity of the nature of the remark, when it is blatantly obvious it had nothing to do with race(well, obvious if you are educated).

  • Creldarix

    Kid put a chink in that teacher’s face.

  • armed grandpappy

    Think of all the other words that sound like their racial cousins. Like “figure.” Most of the time in a hurry, we say “figger.” So is it ok if a thug only hears the “igger” part of the word and comes up swinging? No! The cheap hr hug that struck this teacher needs to do some time in the pokie!

      I wrote this because another one of those opportunists had jumped in to this serious issue to try and sell some product or idea. It appears as if he/she has removed their plug. But coming back to see the comments on my comment I see that people in general don’t know which “Reply” to click on and end up attacking the wrong person and a war of hate and confusion breaks out needlessly..

  • William Dean Ziemer

    I will worn this overly sensitive young man and others like him…don’t study Spanish or visit a Spanish speaking country; the word for black is “negro”. And the people, children and adults, may just say out loud as a black person walks by, “Mire! un negro” (look! a black guy) just as easily as they will yell out to me quite innocently; “Mire! un Gringo” (look! a white tourist) and in both cases they mean no harm (in Guatemala anyway) and here they may say instead of “negro”…Negrito or Negrita, which means little black guy or little black woman. Not meaning literally a small person but Guatemalans like to use this ending on about every thing; instead of using the Spanish word “cafe” for coffee, they will say, “Lesgusta mas cafesita?” (would you like some more coffee? “Si, negro por favor” (Yes, black please.);

    That’s my 2 cents worth. You can mail it to me in cash or use your credit card.

  • George Murrey

    Too many people today are willing to do anything in the name of…..ignorance? Too bad the kid didn’t do some research, rather than beating up a teacher for using the correct usage. But we live in a PC world. Now if those same incentive people stop using “cracker” and “honky” as acceptable language, the wold would be much better off.

    This is NOT the first time this “word” has caused trouble. Think it was in N.C. a number of yrs. ago now, I read of a similar incident but without the violence. But hey! This was Maryland. Doesn’t surprise me a bit.

  • Brian Smith

    Any black can come up to you and your family, call you a f**ked up cracker, call your wife a stupid white b***h, call your kids little honkie b****rds and and if you punch them in the face they will be defended as simply using their “freedom of speech” and you will be charged with assault and investigated for a hate crime! If you use a word even remotely perceived by a black as racially insensitive they have license amongst their own to beat your ass! My boy likes to quickly say, “What up, my neighbor”? You should see the reaction from blacks. They ALWAYS perceive that he is using the forbidden word and quickly get in his face. Even after he tells them what he said, they’re still pissed! Racebaiters have them SO convinced that everything in their lives is dependent on skin color that they may never be able to join hands with whites in equality again. We were so close to achieving that, but the racebaiters figgered they’d lose too much money and their celebrity statuses if that happened.

  • Ricky Shifflett

    What ever happened to sticks and stones?

  • Arthur M.

    The schools most likely don’t even teach the meaning of the word for their own self-perceived pc reasons. You know…it looks and sounds like that “N” word…so, don’t use it or speak it in the classrooms. What a bunch of chicken-sh*ts! I think they should teach it, just for the sake of clarifying its meaning, so, this kind of misunderstanding doesn’t happen in the future. And, they probably need to explain in advance, that it is a word that has been….and, is mistaken by some as a racial slur of some kind. But, no matter what…no student should ever be assaulting any teacher or anyone else in school (or anywhere else), for any reason.

  • tmunson15

    I once had a secretary who objected to my use of the word “boss” when saying something like, “Let me check with my boss.” She complained that it was racist as in “Boss man” or “Massa.” This was in Atlanta about 30 years ago and I was the only white in the office…and I was the supervisor of them all. I was in the army at the time and they were all civilians. I was shocked that she was offended, but I was not apologetic. Screw her. If it wasn’t meant in an offensive, racist way then SHE is responsible for how she responds, NOT me.

  • Butch

    Automatic felony. The teacher is over 65. Where I come from it doesn’t matter what happened you don’t hit old people and keep your freedom. I say execute him now or spend tax money to keep him locked up until he does something that the powers that be decide he did something bad enough to take his life

  • farmer93

  • afftongrown

    The teacher was reading from a book, so how is he responsible for someone else’s words? Absolutely ridiculouse that this would set this student off! The word had NO connotation regarding race, and he should be charged with battery and have the book thrown at him! The teacher is the complete victim in this situation, and the student is the criminal!

  • Froward

    Ignorance begets violence these days.

  • Oingo

    “Niggardly” (noun: “niggard”) is an adjective meaning “stingy” or “miserly”, perhaps related to the Old Norse verb nigla = “to fuss about small matters”.[1] It is cognate with “niggling”, meaning “petty” or “unimportant”, as in “the niggling details

  • Lon G

    And of course while the student is presumed innocent until proven guilty, the teacher is considered guilty until proven innocent. This is the educational system.

  • Maxwell Winkelmann

    No… what we need here is a school for those that choose to be ignorant for he rest of their lives. Teach them how to use their hands as a crop hand, street sweepers, garbage truck haulers … not to belittle these jobs however these people that do these know how to work. It’s hard work and most choose to move up in their status.

  • Jenny

    Violence is never the answer. Our voice is so powerful. If the boy spoke up with a good choice of words, the teacher would have had the opportunity to further explain. Even if the teacher was in the wrong, there is a different protocol for correct action. As a black American, I’m appaualled by this! It goes to show how much these children are acting out the example they are given in their home. I pray for this child and his parents to seek God, and the teacher I am sorry for all the ignorance shown.

    I do know what the word, “niggardly” means. I also agree that no matter what the teacher said, the student had no right to assault him. People like this should be charged. They are an embarrassment to society…well they should be. Unfortunately they are often made heroes. I personally think this kid is a punk, if this story is correct.

  • Golfer1113

    Regardless of the word used, does that justify violence upon a 70 year old? Violence is the only answer in some peoples minds and that needs to be changed. It should have been reported rather than being an attack. Oh and don’t come after me you libs because of the second sentence. Some people refers to ALL races, colors, creeds, etc. So don’t even try to make that a racist statement.

  • bigsurprise

    I am sickened and horrified that PARENTS are not teaching their children the proper way to handle their upset and anger…They SHOULD have taught him to ask for an explanation and say that it sounded like a racial insult…then he would have gotten his answer. This THUG mentality DOES run rampid, and it is TRUE that it is mainly among blacks, so lets just tell it like it is ….I am VERY concerned also that this student was not taught respect for authorities, or elders…The photo shows this was not minor !!! , and EVEN any minor assault on an elderly person is intensified by their aged more fragile bones and structure …I am SO ANGRY! at the media, the school, and anyone who would support this as being justified in any way !!! …the fact that any parent thinking this student should attack and beat up and elderly teacher because they and their student did not comprehend a WORD is typical of what we are seeing played out all over our country now, and in the world…..and the extreme of this, is ISIS …If you do not agree with someone….just agree to disagree and go live your life in a way that does no harm to another …..This is NOT that hard to do Folks !!!! Charges of assault need to be brought on this student and a precidence set so that other students KNOW they CANNOT attack their teachers !!! THIS IS a criminal offense !!

  • TheMule61

  • Robert White

    well. the student just proved the term has its place. how many times, do we hear of a white person, attacking a black, for the words “cracker”, or honky”, or others? none. why? some people are civilized. some relate to a civil society, others, a tribal mentality. it happens over and over. so dont tell me im racist. I am mature enough, to take insults. It runs off me, like water off a duck. Other people, are on the lookout, for any reason to show savagery. And the so called leaders, have the nerve, to complain, that certain groups, make up a unfair percentage, of prison space. Violent people should! -as well as the politically correct, in many cases.

  • avengeflipper

    So the kid was an uneducated bottom feeder who can’t control himself. He attacked a teacher and we are going to justify it by saying he “thought” it was racist. Remember when society championed freedom of speech without fear. Now, you can’t only not be racist (thought police anyone), but you cannot say anything that might be perceived by an uneducated bottom feeder is racist. Good luck America, reeducation camps for the educated aren’t far off.

  • justtheusa

    Just proves that most blacks are just looking for a reason to go after a White person. The kid wanted attention and got it. But nothing will be done to him. He’s black and his target victim was White!

  • Elizabeth F

    It’s an uncommon word, rarely used anymore because of its similarity to “the N word”. There are plenty of other words one could use. Niggardly is an awkward word to even pronounce..why not use “miserly” or “stingy”? Not bright…Yes they were wrong, but you can hardly punish ignorance or pain. Hitting the teacher was wrong, period…but that doesn’t make the teacher any smarter, either.

    • avengeflipper

      This has to be sarcasm. No one can be so stupid as they think a teacher shouldn’t teach students what words, that are found in the dictionary and literature, mean. Niggardly is a word used in some books and it is the teacher’s job to teach students what the word means. Thank goodness the kid wasn’t sitting in read aloud of Huckleberry Finn.

    • Wiggle D

    The bigger issue is that the child was taught that it was appropriate to respond to words with violence. Even if the teacher had used a racial slur, turning something from verbal to physical is not acceptable.

    This just proves our education system is grossly inadequate in the teaching of the English language for one; and that the kid is a violent thug.

  • commonsense

    Ahahahaha, a few years ago a white city councilman in DC used the same word completely in context and his black counterparts also flew off the handle, demanded he resign, yada, yada, yada. So we can’t really blame this kid, he may have a bright political future ahead of him, perhaps he will even deal with Guam tipping over or finding the flag we left on Mars……

    I am a white female. The student to whom I was talking is white. I told him he could be excused from class but not to assume it was carte blanche. He attacked me. A school photographer pulled him off me and I went on to class. After class started I was sent to the academic dean’s office and joined by the Vp for student affairs and the provost who wanted to know why I had taunted him. By point is that some people are just wound tight. The student went to counseling and I still had him in class.not very pleasant all around. Never did get an apology from anyone.

    • Wiggle D

      I had to look it up. Yeah, is pretty messed up too

  • StopTheFlood

    Bottom line – violence is not a civilized method of dealing with anger. Not punishing the student for his neanderthal manner of showing his displeasure with what he thought he heard just leaves him to believe that his behavior is acceptable. The media is often sending the wrong message when it covers an incidence such as this. The media attacks the wrong party quite often and is partly responsible for the outrage of the public.

  • David Farmer

    So I assume the student has apologized to the teacher and now can quote the definition of the word and use it in a sentence!

    • brian110256

      do you think I am sorry is enough

  • Nomasidiotas

    The student should be expelled, and charged with assault and battery.

  • AWCheney

    That young man most definitely should be charged with assault, and most definitely should see some punitive jail time. If his parents won’t teach him responsibility for his actions, society must step in! The fact that he assumed the word “niggardly” to be racist says but one thing about our public schools…THEY ARE NOT EDUCATING!

    • Wiggle D

  • Steve Crawford

    The student should get cited for being ignorant (of the word niggardly) and for the assault. He should be made also to write the meaning of the word 1000 times. I blame the black churches and parents for the Barbaric behavior and disrespect of the Black Children in the schools.The white teachers have something that the black students need, knowledge. The black students have three choices to succeed or not to succeed, Graduate from high school and college, drop-out of school OR get their GED in prison. Sadly, black parents, churches and spokespersons are NOT giving the black children positive advice that could be beneficial in them becoming good citizens. How many of the black parents and students (18yo) are registered to Vote and Voted in the last elections?.

    Al Sharpton was in a Sears Department store in Chicago.

    As he walked through the Large Appliance department, he noticed all the
    washing machines were white. He felt it was a good chance to protest the
    fact that all of the washing machines

    were white, and he could possibly get one free if he complained loud enough.

    He asked the clerk to call the store manager, who asked, “What’s the problem here,

    Reverend?”.

    Sharpton went to great lengths to let the manager know just who he was,
    and then pointed at the machines and loudly bemoaned the fact that all
    of them were white.

    The manager replied, “Well, Reverend, it’s true that all of the washing
    machines are white, but if you’ll open the lids,you’ll see that all the
    agitators are black.

  • dghealy

    This is not right. Students are not being taught to respect their teachers. The schools side with the student if the student is of a minority background Then the parents from the same background stick up for the violent child. Everyone too afraid of a lawsuit by the parents to actually stand up and protect the teachers or students just trying to instruct these children and help them become productive adults. Until we address the real problem until we are allowed to say who is truly the problem,this will only get worse. No ones making these kids take responsibility for their actions. The kid was to ignorant to ask the teacher what the word meant and instantly went violent beating a 70 year old man. The teacher needs to sue the school district and the department of education. This crap needs to stop.It needs to stop NOW.

    I’m sure that it will not matter to this “tough guy” when he learns what the word actually meant. He and those supporting him will insist that the teacher meant it exactly the way they interpreted. I love how these “tough guys” are going after elderly white teachers. I bet their parents are proud. DISGUSTING!!!!!!

  • Brenda Golden

    He is lucky the teacher was not armed. The thug needs to be in jail for assault and battery. His stupidity is not an excuse.

  • Diane

    So a 6 year old who has a nail clipper in school will get suspended for having a weapon, but a teenager who beats up a teacher, and an elderly one at that, may not face charges???? This country and our schools have lost all common sense.

  • Minarchism Leads To Freedom

    I don’t think this would have happened if the parents had been paying for their kid’s education. Instead we are and they’ve gone AWOL.

  • Shane Shaw

    expulsion, prosecution… nothing else is acceptable…

  • 40% of seniors in high school cannot pass an English fluency test enough to get into a city college.

  • SDN

    Great story. Combines oversensitivity with thuggery found among many Blacks.

  • Liz

    Sounds like the parents are as ignorant as the so-called students. Pass it on!!!!!!!

    • Mike

      I have witnessed parents complaining about teachers swearing at students……..ass (teacher used word asinine) and a bitch (teacher used the word habitual). There’s no accounting for the some people’s stupidity…….some adults should not have children.

  • Incognito

    little bastage should have been arrested on the spot.. I hope the teacher has him prosecuted for assault.. if he will attack a teacher because he’s too stupid to know the meaning of a word by the time he’s in high school, then he’s truly a stupid little sob and he’ll end up killing someone someday over nothing.. great reflection on his parents.. And where do schools get off letting their teachers be assaulted anyway????????

  • Jen

    That teacher is an idiot. Completely inappropriate to use inflammatory language like that, regardless of him using it in a “unique” or “edgy” manner. Out of line for an educator in this day and age. Time to retire.

    • Gary

      What? What you said is gibberish. There is nothing inappropriate or inflammatory about the word niggardly—it has zero to do with race. It is a legitimate English word that means miserly. That teacher is not to blame for other’s stupidity. Is the Spanish teacher going to be attacked for using the word negro (the color black in that language)? Time to retire your comments.

    • Mike

      Your ageist comment is so inappropriate too. Do you know this man? Do you know under what circumstances he used the word? How do you know he meant it to be “unique” or “edgy”? Maybe is was quoting a passage from a novel whose author used the word. How do you know that this 70 year old man has nothing to offer in the classroom? This student’s actions are indefensible.

    • RW

      The language was not inflammatory at all. The problem was that an ignorant person with little self control heard a word they didn’t understand/misinterpreted and went ballistic over it.
      It is illogical to ban words simply because there are uneducated people who don’t know what a word means and they may have a hysterical/emotional reaction to it. No one has to be “sensitive” to their ignorance nor should anyone have to walk on eggshells because of it. Catering to ignorant people and their “hurt feelings” in such a scenario is ridiculous.

  • Well, he will have plenty of time to study up on the dictionary when his ass is sitting in prison. Aggravated Assault, Assault on the Elderly, bye…

  • Chizzy

    “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.”

    Now That Whole Paragraph Was Racist. Because He Punched Him Automatically Makes Him A Thug? And 2 Assume That This Kids Future Is Spending Time In Jail Is Just Wrong. I’m Not Defending Wat He Did Because It Was Wrong, But To Say Wat The Above Paragraph Says About A Child Is Wrong.

  • Buypass

    Good thing he didn’t use the racially charged words “good morning”.
    He’d be in a hearse.

  • Texan1st

    I’ll never understand why white teachers would ever want to put themselves in harms way by teaching at a majority black school. Makes no sense.

  • fuzzy

    I say let them stew in their own juices. No white teachers in schools with black students.

  • Steve Crawford

    There are too many irresponsible black Americans. White Americans have their problems also. However, Negative behaviors of Black Americans is news. Sadly there is no real black leadership. Black churches are only about Damnation, Salvation and Tithing. I have NEVER heard a black minister ever talk about social issues from the pulpit. Black parents must be involved in the schools and not tolerate black hostility. However respect for adults should be taught at home, And if that student felt that he was being offended by the white teacher then he should had reported the teacher to the school principle. This black student will be a new addition to the penal system, because of his ignorance. He must learn the level of his ignorance and be taught positive behaviors. But the blame should be on the mother (he probably don’t have a father) who also is limited in parenting skills. Too many babies are having Babies, and become stuck in a low income environment, with no hopes of a prosper future. Ignorance and being uneducated is the worst disease of Black Americans.

  • coyote lebrun

    What is an outrage is that you go about saying that the kid is a thug and that he is likely to occupy a prison cell in the not too distant future. You should be ashamed. That is not journalism. That is a racist comment. You should be able to write an article and state the facts without saying such a thing, Gina Cassini.

  • jack b goode

    this disrespectful young savage needs a boot up his ass.

  • RetroShanti

    I go to this school and I definitely know that’s not what happened. This article is disgusting to me. why does everything have to be so black and white? Maybe both of them were wrong . Not just the student .Not just the teacher. im so tired of seeing these articles spreading lies and mixing facts with their racist characterizations of children. It might’ve been a complete misunderstanding, but the comment should’ve never been made and those actions shouldve never been taken but that’s how it happened. Its not a bad school. It has nothing to do with majority of the students. Everyone will react to things differently because we all have led different lives. Who knows why the boy reacted the way he did. He might’ve felt like he had a legitimate reason to hit him. Who knows why the teacher made the comment? Maybe he thought he was just being honest and that it would be received differently. No one but the actual students and staff at Forestville know what really happened. So before everyone get all excited about because of this clearly biased article, thinking about what the whole story could’ve been.

  • Thomas

    He assulted a teacher end of story charge him like u would a white student that hit and injured a teacher period!!!

  • wanda
