Alabama teacher suspended for justifying N-word after students busted for racist ‘concentration camp’ video

Published

on

A teacher at an Alabama school has been suspended for justifying the use of racial slurs during a discussion about a racist video featuring students.

AL.com reports that the Spain Park High School teacher, who is white, used the N-word while discussing a racist video with black students that went viral earlier this week.

“This alleged matter is being investigated,” said Hoover school Superintendent Kathy Murphy.

Students confirmed the teacher, whose name was not released, was not in class Wednesday.

The school held a day of dialogue Tuesday, after a video surfaced over the weekend showing white students from Spain Park and Hoover high schools using anti-Semitic and racist language at a party.

“Without the Holocaust, what would the world be like?” one teen says in the video. “Jews would run the world.”

“F*ck n*ggers, f*ck Jews,” another student says.

A student then suggests putting black people into concentration camps.

The video has been viewed more than 2 million times on Twitter, and has sparked nationwide outrage.

Spain Park students spent the day in assemblies and in small group discussions, and the teacher allegedly used racial slurs in class.

A student told AL.com the teacher told students that everyone uses the N-word, so she could, too.

Administrators apparently disagreed, and allegedly sent her home.

A teacher at Hoover High School resigned last year for using a racial slur to describe a student’s choice of music.

Both Spain Park and Hoover are part of a majority white school system in the suburbs south of Birmingham.

‘Names are going to start coming out’: New report says more elites will be exposed in the Epstein case — and ‘DC is on edge’

Published

on

Will other powerful people — presumably men — get taken down as a result of the sex trafficking case against Jeffrey Epstein?

That’s the hope of many closer followers of the story, but it’s far from clear what, if any, fallout there will be. Epstein’s connections to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump have raised suspicions about potential evidence of their wrongdoing, such suspicions remain unproven. Alan Dershowitz has already faced accusations of being involved in Epstein’s crimes, though he denies the charge vigorously.

But a new report from Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman says that “DC is on edge” over the Epstein case, and any elites who have run in his circles could be involved. Dozens of girls, if not more, are believed to be involved in his alleged sex trafficking, and lawyers for some of the women who have accused Epstein are strongly suggesting that other high-profile figures will be implicated.

‘It’s so un-American’: Internet scorches Trump supporters for racist chants of ‘Send her back!’

Published

on

The ignoble highlight of President Donald Trump's rally in Greenville, North Carolina on Wednesday was when his fans doubled down on his racist attacks on four Democratic congresswomen of color and targeted Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), chanting "Send her back! Send her back!"

Political commentators of all stripes were gobsmacked by the crowd's naked racism — and buried them in condemnation:

The crowd at Trump’s rally chanting “send her back” after the President viciously and dishonestly attacked Ilhan Omar is one of the most chilling and horrifying things I’ve ever seen in politics.

Jeffrey Epstein wasn’t even a competent investor: report

Published

on

There can be no doubt that high-powered hedge fund manager Jeffrey Epstein would rather the public know him for his prominence and success as an investor than for the allegations of child sex trafficking, for which he has now been indicted and faces life in prison. And there has for years been mystique surrounding Epstein's business — his wealth fund is so exclusive that it reportedly requires a billion dollars up front from clients.

But according to the Dow Jones' periodical Barron's, Epstein may not even be good at that.
