Alabama teacher admits telling students to ‘turn the n*gger tunes off’ after they played Tupac in class

An Alabama high school teacher was placed on paid leave for using a racial slur to complain about music students were playing in class last week.

Students are allowed to listen to music in teacher Teddie Butcher’s food and nutrition class, but they said she complained about a song they’d chosen Friday while working on a project, reported AL.com.

The students were listening to “Dear Mama,” by Tupac, when the white teacher returned to class.

According to multiple witnesses, Butcher told students to “turn the n*gger tunes off.”

Students and their parents complained to Hoover High School administrators, and Butcher admitted to using the slur.

Butcher told the school superintendent that she was upset by profanity in the 1995 song, but parent Shenita Morrow said the lyrics do not contain any foul language.

Morrow, who is black, said she’s most concerned about the “comfort level” Butcher displayed in using the slur.

School officials said Butcher apologized to students Monday, and she met privately with Morrow and her daughter.

“After meeting with her, it’s just baffling to me how someone does not understand the severity of the weight of that word,” Morrow said.

The incident remains under investigation, but students said school officials made them delete video evidence of Butcher using the slur.

Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Published

President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).

"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
