Reply to "Teacher suspended for ten days, after calling student Nigga!"

quote:
For those pedants among you who would quibble the point that the student did not say the word before the teacher did, thus attempting to negate the argument of sarcastic response in a disciplinary fashion, let me remind you that this is slang we are discussing. Imagine people who say "nigga" as often as some people say "like," then think about the probability that the student said it before entering into conversation with the teacher, thus provoking comment.

To draw a parallel to slang, the word "juke" used to be slang meaning to have sex, thus the word "jukebox" was come upon as they were present in, to put it bluntly, whorehouses. For those of you who have their heads up their asses, (you don't know who you are), I think i'll start a mini-scandal about the word jukebox.

There is no excuse in the world that an educated professional, and teacher on top of that, in charge of teaching and educating minors has for using this word. He can attempt to explain and excuse his use of the word all he wants, but he knows, and we all know that it was his intent to be able to call an African American a nigger and get away with it. I'll bet he's never called a 6ft-200+lb African American adult male 'nigga'---I'll be his better judgment would let him know right away not to call a grown man at least his size or less that word, so it seems extremely unlikely that he was not siezing an opportunity to use this derrogatory term without sanction (or a size 12 up his ass).

And the term "juke" really has African origins that basically means a house of ill repute -- not necessarily or only a 'whorehouse' -- it could be a liquour house, gambling house, or even a whorehouse. The term is still used in the south by older people and they are almost never talking about a whorehouse when they say it. It really means a house or a place (juke joint) where people gather to do nearly anything that 'religous' people feel is either a sin or against religous teaching.
