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

I lied when I said that was my last post.

There's your comedy show.

In any case, to repeat myself again, I'm not trying to get you to say it's ok for me or any other person to use the n-word. I'm letting you know I don't take this kids sob story seriously because he had obviously heard the word from his peer group before, without bringing up a huge scandal. English teachers do crap like this all the time. My english teacher counted incorrect uses of the word "like" during one of my classmate's presentation (there were 137), then announced it to her in the presence of her peers. That student watches how much she uses the word in an innapropiate context now. A black student in my english class last year brought in a CD labelled "Nigga music" and handed it in as part of a presentation. The teacher blasted this kid. "Turn off that 'Nigga Music'." (he was listening to music in a lesson about a week later). Did the kid go cry to his parents? No, he was mature enough to realise that it was a pretty stupid idea to use the word in everyday speech, and truth be told, he uses it on a less regular basis now.

Grow up, quit using the word, (guess what word I learned Richard Pryor says he hasn't used for 20 years), quit condoning its use and people will respect you for it, as well as paying more attention when you do dissaprove its use.

Another good argument: I think its three times now that people have brought up the idea of solving problems through an asskicking. I would like to build on that positive trend by saying that my dad can beat up your dad. Keep the streak alive!

**EDIT**
Omega is quite right Nmag, before I watched Dave Chappelle and developed somewhat of a friendship with a group of blacks who use this word constantly, I was much more sensitive to its use. White's started its use in the context we know it today, but I hear blacks use it more than any whites do. Spot on Omega. And for the third or fourth time, I have no desire to be granted the dubious privilege of using this word, quit arguing that point.
