I did read your whole post, but this is the major disconnect that your having...

The impact on the student has nothing to do with the intent of the teacher. Why is this so hard for you to understand? It has nothing to do with whether or not the teacher is punished. Whatever damage that was done is already done. It doesn't matter in the slightest what the teacher's intent was. He can control his intent, but not the effect. Coincidently, and especially, because he is a teacher, he must be mindfull of the effect he has on his students!

No one cares if he's racist or not. His actions were racist, even if his intent was not.

who states the word is always taken in a racist fashion from a white person to a black person, WHICH SHOWS IT IS EXTREMELY PROBABLE HE DOESNT FUCKING CARE WHAT THE TEACHERS INTENT WAS!)

Bingo!!! You said it this time, not one of us. Now, re-read that statement until it makes sense to you.
