California teacher repeatedly uses N-word — and tells class they’re being ‘oversensitive’ about it

An English teacher at Sequoia Middle School in Fontana, California, is under fire after being caught on video repeatedly using the N-word, while trying to get a student to say it too, reported ABC 7 News.

“According to students, the class was reading a Mark Twain novel when someone asked the teacher about the spelling of the N-word,” reported Rob McMillan. “‘The teacher got in front of the class and she was saying that the word is just an English word and everybody can say it if she wants to, it’s in the dictionary, and people are oversensitive over the word,’ said the student who shot the video on her phone. She did not want to be identified. ‘She was trying to force him to say the word and she repeatedly kept saying it and she had a smirk on her face,’ recalled the student, who’s African American. ‘I was just thinking, ‘Dang, this teacher is out of her mind.””

“Say it!” the teacher can be heard saying in the video. “You asked me how to spell it, so go ahead and pronounce it. N****r. Pronounce it after me, n****r.”

The teacher was reportedly unavailable for comment when contacted by reporters.
