    I guarantee had this been a white guy the outrage on GT would be "he wouldn't have got fired if he were black". LOL.

    Not surprising that the pot stirring media in the UK wrote that article. I’m seeing more and more of that and I have to wonder why.

    Even words that sound similar can cause an uproar. Years ago someone in the public eye used the word “niggardly” and everyone went nuts.

    Of course few people took the time to learn what the word means. But that’s our world today.

    'As you know, our expectation when it comes to racial slurs has been very clear,' Boran said. 'Regardless of context or circumstance, racial slurs are not acceptable in our schools.'

    Boran added that the zero-tolerance approach 'has been applied consistently and will continue to be applied consistently.'


    Unless the student was permanently expelled from the school, then no, the policy is not being applied consistently.

    Notice the link provided by the OP says “white student”? I guess to drum up more angst and clicks.

    Such a niggardly attempt at rebuttal.

    I work with people of color from many different nations. Most of them can't stand the word African in front of American. They tell me they would never use the name of a continent they've never been to as a means of identifying themselves. Young Haitian guy I work with is really bothered by it.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there may be a bit more to this story than just a "security assistant" who knowingly, and reportedly multiple times, repeats a word he knows (or ought to know) is prohibited by an existing zero-tolerance school policy.

    "As Mr. Anderson was trying to escort the student out of the building, he said, the student taunted him with the racial slur about 15 times. He said he repeatedly told the student to stop using the slur, which he himself repeated several times.

    That’s when he said the assistant principal, Jennifer Talarczyk, turned on the microphone of her walkie-talkie, so that Mr. Anderson could be overheard by school administrators and members of the security staff. He said Ms. Talarczyk told him to “tap out” and remove himself from the confrontation with the student."

    Uh huh.

    Also, if he clearly knows not to say the actual word, which he does in a subsequent interview, then it seems he ought to know not to say it on the school grounds where he can be heard by students and other staff, where it's prohibited.

    “I’m not going to be called that word,” Mr. Anderson said in the interview. “I have a right to not be called that word, I believe. I feel like she tolerated it for the entire ordeal.”

    Maybe it's bit more complex than a rigid and unyielding zero tolerance policy?

    Then ...

    “As a board, we plan to review our approach, the underlying policies, and examine them with a racial equity lens understanding that universal policies can often deepen inequities,” she added. “We will ask the community for help in that process. I have requested that this item be placed on our board agenda as soon as possible.”

    Sometimes it seems some people and some administrative efforts successfully make things overly complicated?

    People. ;)

    Well, i`ll admit i`m a 100% true racist... 1/4 mile at a time!

    Actually, we dont have a big racist problem in this country. The ONLY reason it still exists, is because somebody somewhere, is making ALOT of money off from it. And when you really get down to the bare bones about it, there is more hate than anything in it. Words can be a very powerful weapon, as well as get you locked up today. Or like in NY, calling someone and illegal immigrant, costs you jail time and $250,000 fine.

    Funny how i`m 100% Italian, my friends can call me a guinea, a wop, or whatever, it dosent bother me at all. And when a stranger does it, i just smile, and say, well it must really suck, to be you.

    Not to worry folks!!

    Cher is coming to his rescue!!
    Cher offers to cover legal bills for fired school guard who used racial slur
    https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/cher-legal-bills-security-guard-marlon-anderson

    Cher is offering to pay the legal bills for a Wisconsin high school security guard whose firing sparked protests.

    In a tweet Friday, the pop singer said she'll cover the cost of any lawsuit Marlon Anderson might file over being fired for repeating a racial slur while telling a student to stop using the word.

    Anderson, who is black, said the disruptive student at Madison West High School repeatedly used the slur and other obscenities on Oct. 9.

Anderson, a security guard at a Wisconsin high school, was fired after he says he repeated a racial slur while telling a student who had called him that word not to use it. He has filed a grievance seeking his job back. (Steve Apps/Wisconsin State Journal via AP))

    He repeated the word as he admonished the student, who is also black.

    The Madison school district, which has a zero-tolerance policy on racial slurs, fired Anderson.

    Why would you say something like that. Thats like putting someone in jail before they even do the crime. Best to get ALL the facts before making assumptions and statements like that.

    He grew up to become a low level neighborhood gangster found a home in prison where he could reunite with family members long gone and finally meet the father he's never seen.
