After her son was disciplined for using the n-word, a white woman deployed the word herself during a school board meeting in Michigan.
"Frankly I was shocked," Grosse Pointe Public Schools Superintendent Jon Dean told Fox 2 Detroit.
"That is certainly not appropriate language to use," noted. "It is racist, inappropriate language.
Parent Abigail Ward, a white woman married to a Black man who is raising biracial children, wished the board had done more at the time.
"I’m just concerned as a parent, that the more and more lines continue to be crossed, at what point will the board then speak up," she said.
Joseph Herd, the president of the school board, released a letter saying that, "moving forward, anyone using inappropriate language will be removed from the meeting."
