why Racism is alive today

Aside from all the specifics I feel that telling someone they should be ashamed to be " black" is racist. Period! Especially coming from a teacher, directed to a child, it is unacceptable! Scolding a students choices, actions, performance, and etc. is fine.... directing the comment toward their ethnicity or religion is Racist! This type of racist disregard is why racism is still alive today!

From what I understand this teacher did not mention anyones name in his blog. I have only seen lttle pieces of what was written and it could easily be taken out of context. Unless someone read the blog in full, itis hard to know what was really said or meant by the teacher.

Even if no name was mentioned, do you really want someone like that teaching your children? Its a darn shame for anyone to have to sit in a class where the teacher thinks "anyone that is black should be ashamed to be black" smdh.
