Title (Dublin Core)

Teachers spell out racial slur with giant Scrabble letters. Parents are pissed.

Description (Dublin Core)

From the article: One parent said that her son is “tired” of the racism because it is a common occurrence at the school.

“He absolutely told me, ‘Mom, I’m tired of it, do what you need to do because this is not fair and I’m tired of feeling like this,'” she said.

But one of the school’s basketball coaches, John Smith, is standing up for the teachers.

“This isn’t our school, this was a mistake,” he said. “Everybody in the world makes mistakes, everybody in the world has faults and this is just a little fault that we’ve had. This is not our school. I truly believe that they did not know what they were posting.”

The school, though, openly supports discrimination. Their website says that the school teaches that marriage is “the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture” and denounces the “immorality and sinfulness of sexual relationships outside of biblical marriage and of sexual relationships between persons of the same sex.”
