New York high school won’t let teen who called teacher ‘a f*cking racist’ return to class

Published

A New York student is asking a court to help him return to school after he was suspended for calling a teacher “a f*cking racist.”

Vincent Spero claims one of his teachers called him and other minority students a racial slur in October, but Vestal High School administrators found no evidence to back those allegations, reported TWC News.

Spero said the teacher, identified as Katherine Dyer, pulled him aside and used a racial slur after kicking another black student out of math class after she accused the teen of vaping tobacco.

“I’m tired of dealing with you f*cking n*****s,” said the teacher, according to Spero.

Spero was suspended in early December for swearing at the teacher after the school’s investigation, and he filed a discrimination lawsuit in hopes of returning to complete his senior year.

“I’m very disappointed, especially because Vincent has reported incidents in the classroom back in October and they did not look into it,” said his sister, Brittany Spero. “They just completely ignored him, so I honestly don’t feel that they did a proper investigation on this.”

The school rejected the allegations in his lawsuit, but said confidentiality rules prohibits the release of additional information.

“Because of the confidentiality rules that restrict the District from further commenting, you are hearing only the student’s and his family’s side of the story,” the school said in a statement. “We urge all citizens to keep an open mind until all the facts are known.”

Spero is seeking a court injunction that would allow him to complete his final year of high school, and some of his classmates are rallying behind him.

“Vinny is one of my good friends, and it’s just really sad because we all wanted to see him graduate,” said his friend, Kim Heikkila. “He had plans to go out and be a nurse, and now it’s not looking good for him.”

The coronavirus emergency has given President Donald Trump one of the most daunting tests of his administration, with less than a year to go before he stands for re-election.

And yet in the midst of all the chaos, one thing the president found time to do on Thursday was meet with the cast of a bizarre right-wing play dramatizing the supposed "deep state" plot at the FBI to frame Trump in the Russia investigation.

According to The Daily Beast, Trump spent 45 minutes talking with the people behind "FBI Lovebirds: Undercovers," which focuses on the affair between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The leading roles of Strzok and Page were played by Dean Cain, the former Superman actor, and Kristy Swanson, who played the starring role in the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.

All US Navy ships in the Pacific near countries with coronavirus ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days

CNN National Security reporter Ryan Browne tweeted Thursday that the U.S. Navy has ordered all of its vessels in the Pacific that have been near countries with COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus, "to remain at sea for at least 14 days before pulling into another port in order to monitor sailors for any symptoms of the virus."

Health experts have said that the two-week period should give enough time for infected people to become aware that they are sick.

The highly-contagious disease has spread very quickly in South Korea and California after public exposure. The first person verified with "community-spread" transmission was identified just outside of Sacramento, California.

‘Most wicked to ever represent Cleveland’: Jim Jordan ripped by hometown paper for covering up sex scandal

Published

President Trump likes to call his enemies 'sleaze bags" and Ohio GOP Rep. Jim Jordan a "warrior," but according to Cleveland Plain Dealer columnist Brent Larkin, Trump has it backward.

While Jordan may not seem like the worse politician to ever come out of Ohio, the "crimes" he's committed "don't involve felonies," according to Larkin. "They are crimes against America, crimes involving total disregard for the principles of democracy, trampling the truth on behalf of a corrupt president who revels in his inhumanity."

Watching Jordan question witnesses during the House impeachment inquiry particularly incensed Larkin, who writes that it was like watching a man who "spent his childhood gleefully ripping wings off flies."
