Teacher Calls Black Students “N*ggers: A Call to Action
Every year, I dread late August and early September, along with late May and early June. It never fails that a principal or teacher does something racist or overreacts with extremely hash disciplinary measures. I am tired of these stories. Aren’t you? Whenever these stories cross my path, I take action. I contact the school administrators and superintendents, in writing. We can NO LONGER stand by and let racism flourish.
Today’s story comes from San Bernardino, California at Cajon High School. Teacher Bernadette Yuson called students “n*ggers.” The schools initially-mild response is unacceptable. That this teacher has not been dismissed is even more appalling. She cannot be trusted to grade fairly, nor can she be trusted handle discipline with regard to Black students. Please contact the school principal, Toni Miller, by phone or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember her face, and do not let your child stay enrolled in any classroom where she is teaching. If they won’t fire her, then demand a schedule change for your student. This everyday racism cannot happen with your silence. If you can shout for Ferguson, we can shout for these kids. People like this teacher are what kill the Mike Browns of the world. Please speak up.
