"He said he 'bombarded' the boy who touched his nipple in a 'knee-jerk reaction'.''
That's understandable; it's not the best choice, but it's understandable.
"He said he believes he's being discriminated against because he is black."
Now that makes me nipple-twisting angry ... grasp any straw to absolve yourself from responsibility. Nope, I think you were fired because you bombarded the boy. Join the real world.

I hate when the race card is thrown out on the table. I was reading the article and I was agreeing with him up until he said he believes he is being discriminated against because he is balck. Gimme a break! You hit a student you lose your job.

He drove all the way from Douglassville to Perkasie for $28,000?? I think they did him a favor by letting him go. Let some of the 6 figure administrators get their nipples twisted and see how they take it.

The thing is that they were going to let him go anyway and this just made up their mind. He only did the race thing after he was fired and couldn't collect unemployment.

Ronald Barrett was an indecent human being and thought of himself higher then anyone in the building. He has been known to make cruel comments on behalf of the staff and students at the school. His only cop out is blaming his termination on racism, how pathetic.

He could collect if there was a hearing and he either wins or the rep from the school doesn't show...
