Do teachers not show and teach respect anymore? Would not allow my child to attnd a class wih such a racist. We need to show and talk respect for all races. The teacher has mde a ntional show by his choice of words. What else have his students had to hear frm him?

It's the parents' job to teach their children to respect others. Teachers have their hands full as it is by trying to teach, meet testing guidelines and achieve high scores. I don't condone what that coach did, but teachers can only do so much.

And in this case, he should have shut his mouth with his personal opinions. But win a few football games, and he's good as gold.

No matter how offensive, freedom of speech is freedom of speech. Two men engaging in buggery is far more offensive than any word that I know.
Just sickens me!

"Freedom of speech is freedom of speech"??? This is a school, and those are children, guy. No one has "freedom of speech" in front of children, and particularly not teachers. This whole "freedom" thing the far right has *at best* assumes you're free to do as you wish **if** you're not impinging on someone else's freedom. What *do* you think the word "child" means?

As for "buggery"... when is the last time you looked at hetero anal porn? It's all over the net. Yesterday? You don't like male genitals against a male butt? What about a woman with a strap-on? Is that ok? And if you're such a "freedom" junkie, stop making comments about *my* freedom to have consensual, adult sex as I wish.

I don't rationalize or support any form of buggery. But it is far more dangerous among gay men and statistics prove so. Especially for the catcher/bottom. Which one are you?

Gay sex isn't natural. I don't care what my college professor says. I remember a Black teacher who ranted about Bush and "rednecks" and she never got fired. Double standard.

Public schools brainwash children. I was taught to hate myself for being White.

So making fun of Christians and country folk "rednecks" is okay?

See what happens when trolls use other people's usernames? You might be directing that question my way, and the lie posted by the Topix troll, R1, that I have a kid is just that, a lie! See how a troll has ruined it for almost all grey boxes? Even though I think you're an ass, I at least know where you stand and you don't sneak around with multiple usernames. The rumor that I work for Topix is another troll created myth!
