To inform the public about an indiscretion does not make you a racist. I agree with you Jerry it is not only about African Americans Pamela Spence and her racist comments offended everyone that is against what she represents. We as citizens of all races must demand respect together and not defend the derogatory actions of anyone regardless of their race.

I have had Mrs. Spence as an intructor for more than three classes. Anything said about different races(not olnly black, which is my race) is all statistics. Never-the-less Mrs. Spence has been there for me and for other students. Denoting her ability as a teacher really makes me ashamed to say we share the same color skin. She was there for me outside of class. It was hard for me to disregaurd this comment that is truley lies. If you got offended by the statistics maybe you should keep our race as it shows in the books and stay home. Bringing everyone of her overseers into this post is very wrong and you should realize u are the wrong one for putting this up. Mrs. Spence is one of the non racist teachers i have had in the three years i have been in college. For you to try to take this away from not only black future students but ALL races of students really proves that our race is the most racist. Why dont you find out whats really important and stop trying to take our favorite teacher away from us.

I have had ms. spence as a teacher for all four years of college at both Holmes cc and MC and these accusations could not be further from the truth. She is highly educated in her area of expertise, as shown by her working on her PhD, and I, like many of her students, have benefited greatly from her teachings. When it comes to race, she has never made any negative comments about a particular race, or class of people. The only time she states things regarding race is when she is reading crime statistics out of the book, where she reads all whether they are red, yellow, black or white. She is simply giving us the facts out of the books that these institutions of higher learning that you want to fire her give us from the bookstore. So don't shoot the messanger, check with the people who help increase those statistics. I was in the class actually where these allegations were made, but what this person failed to mention to the internet world was that this "victim" took another one of her classes after this incident... must of just got left off in the editing of the one sided story. The only time i've ever seen her students get mad is when she lays out the facts and they don't like to hear the truth because they can't handle the idea of their perfect worldisn't the same as the facts she states. Thanks to her apparently god awful methods of teaching, I got my associates degree from holmes and am currently working on my bachelor's at mc and have a great opportunity interning at a state agency where i have been informed i will be hired on full time after graduation. all this came from a "racist, democratic hating, terrible excuse for an educator" of a woman.. yep. who would want to be associated with that. me and countless other students thats who.

I am assuming that if you are writing this you have had a class with Ms Spence, whether at MC or Holmes. I had 4 classes with her as an instructor while I was at Miss College. We may have shared a class. Although, I do not recall in any of my classes any sort of racist comments. Every comment she made was justified by statistics in the text books. O would like to tell you what I do recall in P Spence's classes. I remember her being very open minded, helpful to all her students, staying later to make sure students understood the concepts, making study guides she did not even have to make to assist us on what was going to be on exams, being very opeinded with discussions in class, and giving several chances for bonus points and extra credit. All this makes me wonder if you were ever in a class with her. I cannot imagine any of her actual students making such accusations if he or she was ever a student under her. Maybe nothing has been done because nothing of the sort was ever said.... Just a thought. Hope this helps clear up any of your misconceptions about her and her teaching ethics. She is one of the greatest instructors I had in my four years at MC and I learned more in her classes than any other. It saddens me to think that such a wonderful instructor could be taken away from students because of some clearly confused student. It would be a great lost to anyone studying Criminal Justice.

I am baffled that dialogue of this nature is occurring within the realm of a public newspaper forum. Where is the editor? The one who accused a teacher of being a racist in this forum (without her knowledge, apparently) is now ruining the reputation of an "involuntary" public figure. Any competent editor would acknowledge the serious nature of the accusations being made in this forum, and mediate / edit accordingly.

1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2 : racial prejudice or discrimination

this is how racist is defined by Webster. At any point in your research concerned (since you clearly have so much to back up your outlandish accusations) did Mrs. Spence ever say that one race was better than The black race or discrimante against you or any student? it sounds like you and your source are just upset about facts... Why stop here. Why not write to the book publishers or better yet go to Washington and get all true facts about whites blacks Hispanics ect taken out of text books because you don't like how it sounds.... You really must be a brave well rounded person to publically humiliate a woman with a family, career, and life just because you got your precious little feelings hurt... Grow up

You are all right. I just have a bunch of stored up racism. I couldn't accept the facts and twisted them through my own racist view to make them sound like she was the racist one. I apoligize to Ms. Spence and to all the trouble it has caused her. I lashed out childishly when my feelings got hurt and hopes she forgives me.

I wish the real concerned had the courage to say this. Acceptance is the first step my dear.

It's nice that the word "allegedly" never appeared concerning this teacher and her remarks. I guess "innocent until proven guilty" is only for black people. Notice I didn't use African-American? Hmm, I guess that makes me a racist too because I call them what they are. They are black. Not African.

You know what is also nice? The NAACP, BET televison, Miss BLACK America, among other things. I bet if we had a NAAWP, A WET television network, or a Miss WHITE America, people would be up in arms about it. Equality can only happen when people let go of words that promote separation. You usually don't hear white people saying they are Irish-American or English American but you hear Black people all the time trying to get the "African" American thing out. When we all stop seeing color and stop using words to describe our color and our attitude and our proudness, only then can we all be equal. We are all the same.

"If you prick us do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?"

We are all the same, we're just in different packages.

This is CRAP. I have taken 7 classes from this woman and she has said NOTHING of the sort. This person is probably bitter because she got a crappy grade from a great teacher who challenges us to be better students. In this particular class, she stated that the most likely population of people to be sexually abused are 6-9 year old BLACK GIRLS and it's TRUE. Check the National Crime Statistics bureau and do not shoot the messenger.

You're robbing future students of the opportunity to learn from a wonderful, open-minded, caring professor. Did you know that the only reason her classes were Thursday nights were because they were put up against Dr. Howard's--so people that HAD to take his class wouldn't take her classes just for fun. Mrs. Spence's classes were the highest rated classes in popularity and in population. Most of her classes were maxed out FOR A REASON. Get over yourself and stop slandering the name of a wonderful professor.

You disgust me.

Pamela Spence is by far racist. She is a very kind hearted and caring women. She will do anything for anyone and is always there for you if you need someone. She is a fantastic teacher and mentor. Some people take things to heart and where their feelings on their sleeves and that is the problem here. She is one of the most amazing people I know.

And "concerned," what makes me so mad is that you can make these OUTRAGEOUS complaints and perhaps end this great professor's career just because you're angry and bitter.

Absolute CRAP. How is that fair?

If you had any guts in the world, you'd post your actual name, like I did. Come forward. Don't hide behind anonymity. Be proud of what you're doing. Are you proud?

Show yourself, "concerned."
