    She sounds like a racist.


    Huck Finn is not racist, it's a book that addresses racism. There's a big fucking difference. Using her logic, every American history book would be racist because they reference events in America that had racist elements.

    It's good to hear of a teacher-related incident where the outcome was actually correct. I'm glad she didn't even get unemployment.

    From wiki...


    Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel by Mark Twain, first published in England in December 1884 and in the United States in February 1885. Commonly named among the Great American Novels, the work is among the first in major American literature to be written in the vernacular, characterized by local color regionalism. It is told in the first person by Huckleberry "Huck" Finn, a friend of Tom Sawyer and narrator of two other Twain novels (Tom Sawyer Abroad and Tom Sawyer, Detective). It is a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. The book is noted for its colorful description of people and places along the Mississippi River. Satirizing a Southern antebellum society that had ceased to exist about twenty years before the work was published, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is an often scathing look at entrenched attitudes, particularly racism.

    Notice this was at a privately funded place? No public school would fire her, and that's a fucking problem.

    Fuck off, you melodramatic twat. You're 31. Are you having "flashbacks" to something that happened to your ancestors?

    I think we had at least a dozen "X fired for Y" type of threads already. How come the reason the thread title gives for the firing is never the actual reason? Not even once.

    I like the way the blank point zoo cooperated by placing her picture next to the article.

    I got a bag of candy from a bus driver when I was in 6th grade. I won his Super Bowl contest by picking the winner and having the closest guess to the final score. No, he did not Sandusky me.
