Teacher’s Controversial Comments Prove Why We Need School Reform Now

racist teacher

It’s one thing to see racism on TV and in the media, they push it on a constant basis as it gives them good ratings. That also goes for social media users who want to get a lot of reaction on their timelines, and use racism or call it out to get a lot of followers and responses.

But to learn about this high school teacher who had the audacity to tell his students “to be white is to be racist, period,” is something that shouldn’t be tolerated and excused.

It just so happened someone was recording the teacher saying this outlandish statement and gave it to the authorities. Oh yeah, the subject of the class was “how to heal the racial divide.”


The student, who didn’t wish to be identified, said the lecture started with a video about the “Mistreatment of Native Americans” which showed a man using white-out on certain areas of a globe, where he then wrote his name on the area. According to the student, that was a demonstration “comparing what he had done to the globe to what we did to America.”

When the video was over, the teacher told the class that “to be white is to be racist, period.” The teacher went on to claim, “Am I racist? I say yea. I don’t want to be. It’s not like choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?”

The student was obviously offended by the heavy-handed message, saying “Half of my family is Hispanic so I just felt like, you know, him calling me racist just because I’m white… I mean, where’s your proof in that?”

The school released a full statement on the incident, which reads:

Racism is an important topic that we discuss in our schools. While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended. We regret that the discussion was poorly handled. When the district was notified of this concern it was immediately addressed. We are committed to ensuring inclusiveness in our schools. – Dr. Joe Siano, superintendent of Norman Public Schools.

Our schools need to get back to teaching reading, writing, math and HISTORY. Personal opinions have no place in the curriculum. Teachers are creating robots instead of free-thinking individuals. Yes there is racism in the world and there, unfortunately, always will be, but it isn’t just a problem among the white population.

Most of these inner cities have been run by Democrats for decades. It seems that they are putting into the minds of these kids that only the government can take care of you.

Going back to the classroom and teaching the basics and helping these kids reach the standard is what will help. Build these kids up so they know they can succeed instead of telling them they are too dumb, and the standards need to be lowered.

Do America's schools need to be reformed?
