Adolf Hilter these devils mentor, once said that the way to control people is:
1. Control what the read ( euro-centric efucation)
2. Control what they watch ( hollywood movies/ white image of beauty)
3. Control what they hear ( negative media, statistics, popular music)

My people notice how all of the devils constantly repeat the same negative, tales over, over, over again & again, but they never mention people like adam lanza, the mass killer, or the theather shooter of 14 in denver co..........its a psycholigical game they're playing, resist the devils and the'll flee from you..........these lairs.

It's a good thing they got him for this. He's a white man, so chances are likely he might have molested or had an affair with one of the underaged girls.

Agreed THE TEACHER SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN FIRED In fact absolutely nothing having to do with the job should've happened at all, since the "offense" was merely one of violating political correctness. And it did not happen at work, having to do with work, or with school computers. It's just the same way as how students get in trouble with the school for sexting, even though they did it from home, on the weekend, using their personal cell phone. It has nothing to do with school, but those are becoming more and more part of the totalitarian police state mentality. This teacher was guilty of "wrong thinking" so bring out the thought police! Oh wait, they already did.

You sound ridiculous.

Student sexting CAN have a lot to do with school if they are sexting to and from other students who are underaged. It's a distraction and has led to bullying on school premises.

Get your priorities straight and come into the 21st Century.

I just checked with GOOGLE and they agree with me;

And what about the little houligans? No punishment or them??? Great in a couple years when the are in prison, they can blame the system for teaching them that because they are black it is ok to piss on a white mans property....and ruin his life and get away with it.

The teacher may have been wrong....but, what I learned in school is....for every action there is an equal reaction!

This is the problem that many white people impose on themselves over and over again and again: What if the kids that were doing this had been white? Would he post a rant against all white people and their kids? Probably not, but it was black kids, so his race-bias that was already at the surface was immediately summoned and he posted his stupidity on Facebook.

How are children supposed to look up to someone like this?

Alot of White teachers are at first idealistic, but become realists/racists after being exposed to evil, ugly, retarded, uneducable colored subhumans. Anyway, having another racist White cop on the street is a good thing.

All children are born as selfish little pieces of crap, it is the adults that steer these worthless existences to what they become. Parents and family 'should' bare the brunt but teachers are next. The school made the right decision on the basis that his negativity would have more exposure than it should.

He shouldn't be fired for that. He should only be fired if he acts that out in the classroom. He probably vented online so he would be enabled to get that poison out and be a good person in real life.
Some idiot teachers and supervisors confuse online and home behaviors with work behaviors. Now if the teacher had posted his tirade from a school computer, then I could see it.

Dear black man
17 October 2013, 07:07PM
When did we become what we have become? We mistreat our women and are more interested in drinking and having a good time and sexing rather than creating and thinking. We cry about what the government should do but yet cant even take care of our own children?. How do we expect the cycle of poverty to end when our children continue to be raised in fatherless homes with no support or guidance? We are so much better than this surely?
Can we afford to continue to treat education with disdain? How is it possible that we can watch DSTV soccer , watch basketball and football while our childrens school fees remain unpaid and they go without.
Theres a disconnect with logic and reasoning.
How can we merrily continue with our lives knowing we have children out there that we have never encouraged, held in our arms or simply said I love you and you don't care? Dear black man we are so much better than this surely we can do better.
Have our minds been so deeply programed by an unjust oppressive system that we still believe we are inferior to our lighter skin brothers?. Surely if we had pride in our black skins we would never utter such conversations; I dont use a condom why should I its not like there is something to live for. Why is our mentality such were if I get AIDS Ill be sure to pass it on to others {our black sisters presumably} taking with me as many people as possible?.(A conversion between black brothers in a taxi, translated from IsiZulu to English). Aren't we so much better than this surely we are not this bad?
Have we been wronged to such an extent that its reasonable for young black men in our townships to be sitting idly on a Monday morning living off women or your Mother and not pursing anything worth while? YES, we have been wronged but we are strong, we get back up and fight, we study twice as hard as our white counterparts in our grossly inadequate schools because its the only way out. Or am I just being delusional when I say, we are so much better than this ? Surely we can do better than what I see today.
Dear black man, Im under no illusions of the task at hand. Im well aware of the difficulty caused by my black skin everyday when I leave home. The suspicion on peoples faces when I pass. The locking of car doors as I make my way through traffic lights in white suburbs. But I remain undisputable proud of the fact that Im black, resolute in my desire to impart change.
Because we are better than this, we are stronger than this and when an unjust system oppressed once, visionaries and leaders such as Nelson Mandela, Oliver Reginald Tambo and Steve Biko rose from amongst us.
Those leaders need to rise again, and its starts at home by being a father by encouraging our children to believe they can be anything. It starts by us encouraging creativity and not conformity. It starts by us raising girls who demand respect from the men they interact with.but they never receive. Our women are seeking other races of men and have no faith in us. Is this what we want? Surely, we can do better Black man.
Because dear black man we are surely better than what we have become and what everyone sees in us! Dear Black man we are loathe for many reasons by our own women and children and rightfully so.

Great post KIP. If the kids were White, this teacher would NOT have made any racial comments via Face Book. He showed his true colors and this is why he lost his JOB. Children CAN NOT look up to this idiot teacher.

The parents of these kids may have punished them already. This teacher is an adult and is held to higher standards. The teacher made this occurrence RACIAL. Like I stated before kids will always acts like kids. I hope you don't have any kids you racist PIG......

I completely agree from the standpoint that IF NOT BEING DONE AT SCHOOL and providing its NOT DONE ON SCHOOL GROUNDS then it is no business of the school, or the administration. Having recently finished public school, I can tell you firsthand that yes they are acting like "kid police" and they usually do it with the blessing of local law enforcement (since it lessens their workload) I've seen it happen.
