A white gym teacher has been suspended after being called a n**g*r by a black student in New York. This is absolutely insane!
Chris Passuello, a white gym teacher at Hewlett High School in Long Island, NY, has been suspended after a confrontation with a black student occurred, CBS New York reports. It happened after the student apparently refused to put down his phone.
“You don’t listen to anyone! I am respectfully asking you to put your phone down! You don’t! I’m respectfully asking you to stop talking! You don’t!” Passuello says. “You just don’t stop!”
“You don’t need to touch your face on my face! That’s the thing! You don’t have to take my f***ing bubble!” the thug screams back.
“You are so tough! You’re tough!” the teacher says sarcastically. “This is really intimidating!”
Tensions escalate after the student uses the N word.
“You’re calling me a n****r?” the coach says. “Get out of the class!”
The three-minute exchange, with thousands of online views, prompted the suspension of the teacher, fondly called Coach Paz.
The black student was breaking school rules, being disobedient, used profanity and a racial slur, but it was the white teacher who was suspended. Okay, sure Passuello also used the N-word, but he didn’t direct it at the black student, he used it in a question in response to being called the N-word.
The black student was also suspended from school, but let’s face it, he’s the only one that did anything wrong here. Plus he probably doesn’t want to be in school anyway, while the teacher definitely does want the paycheck he gets from teaching. I feel like only the teacher was really punished in this case.
The school district refused to comment on this situation. They wouldn’t say how long Passuello’s suspension was or when he would be reinstated, if ever. Yeah, the white gym teacher may have been fired for this.
Once again, white people may not use the N-word in any context but it’s totally cool for black people to use it against white people, which doesn’t make any sense at all. What makes even less sense is that white people can now have their livelihoods robbed from them if a black person calls them the N-word. Let’s call this the realization of a Sharptonian America.
