Teacher who called students the 'N-word' and 'slaves' when they objected to term African-American is fired after outrage

A substitute teacher at a Chicago school addressed a group of 13-year-olds using the N-word and referring to them as 'slaves'.

Mea Thompson and three of her friends say the teacher at first referred to them as 'African-American', which the girls objected to as they are not of African heritage.

The female teacher then used the N-word, which the group claim she then repeated throughout the class, referring to them as 'slaves'.

I am white but many of my black friends are offended by the term "african american" They were born here as were their parents and it implies they are less american.

I was told using the term black was the least offensive for them all.

Someone gets into trouble again, for speaking their mind, as allowed under our bill of rights. America has changed into a communist country!

If you think language like this out of a teacher directed towards a class is acceptable, there's something wrong with you. First amendment rights shouldn't be abused nor hidden behind in this way. Some seem to think they can behave however they want & they'll be no repercussions to their actions.

Amen to that 2:03. Free speech does not guarantee you aren't offended but we must as a society teach manners, good will and respect for others.

We have lost that moral fabric and because of that you get stuff like this.
