I can’t even begin to comprehend the school’s rationale on this one.....

Parent upset after teacher corrects student on ‘proper’ usage of N-word
She was given a letter of reprimand

Parent wants more action after child is called N-word, teacher reprimanded
February 20, 2020 at 11:40 AM CST - Updated February 20 at 11:40 AM
GARRARD COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/Gray News) – Parent Patrick Alcorn thinks more than a letter of reprimand is needed after a teacher corrected a student on the “proper” way to use a racial slur.
The student was in the middle of an argument at Garrard County Middle School when the word was used.
"There was some form of an altercation that was verbal," said Alcorn. "One child called my child the N-word and, from my understanding, the teacher heard it and then she proceeded to correct the child who said it, and said that you're saying it incorrectly, this is how you say it."
The letter of reprimand in the teacher’s permanent file came after a week’s investigation and a recommendation by a school lawyer.

"The punishment doesn't fit the crime in my personal opinion," Alcorn said.
After talking with the attorney, Interim Superintendent Ronald "Sonny" Fentress said only so much can be done to punish a tenured teacher with 21 years of experience.
The teacher did send a letter of apology. In it, she claimed she repeated the word in class without thinking first.
"I'm not satisfied with a written apology from the language in the letter because the language states that she used the N-word inappropriately," Alcorn said. "So, my question is, when is it ever appropriate to use the N-word?"

Fentress said the answer is never.
It comes down to an example that schools and teachers should be setting, Alcorn said.
"I don't really feel that there is any room in society, this is 2020, that we should be using that verbiage on either side of the fence," he said.
Alcorn said he would like one of two things to happen.

He either wants the teacher to sit down with him and others to understand how her words affect those around her, or for a portion of her salary to be donated to the United Negro College Fund.

So will the NFLPA pass this? Will they also seriously consider killing them awful preseason games? I know the owners make a killing at them....but who in the hell are really attending them first 2 preseason games?

Back to the, only the #1 seed will have the first weekend off?

According to the CIAA website, the Lady Rams won 63-61.

Oh, I watched a bit of it and knew it was on ESPNU. I was hoping they switched to something else after the clock hit zeros.

Panama City looks like Miami- only its cheaper--

Portugal has a race problem

Do the women in Panama city compare to Miami women though?
???? Not sure why you even care.  You can't get a woman unless she's in pre-school or has a disability anyway.  You may as well come out as gay so you can get some boy padussy on a regular. :shrug:

The aggies are leaving the MEAC and begging to play us? :shrug:  If not playing one game going to hinder us, we are already in trouble.  Just leave and play your pwc schools.  I mean, they are better for your school, right? :shrug:  I know I am not the one to make that decision, but if I was, I would not be interested. 

Y’all should be more like the below picture....

One can’t fly, the other can’t walk....and are besties....
