Great White Hope Quits

Seattle teacher Brian "Nigger, Nigger" Emanuels announced he will resign after the school board gave him a slap on the wrist:

After investigating the matter, Seattle Public Schools officials concluded Brian Emanuels did not mean to convey disrespect or intolerance but called his remarks "inappropriate and unprofessional."

"It was clear from our investigation that Mr. Emanuels meant no harm and that he was trying to drive home a very important point: that words can hurt," school district spokeswoman Lynn Steinberg said. "Unfortunately, he went about his lesson the wrong way."


I love the little slap at his critics in his written statement:

"I am very pleased with the decision of the school district confirming that my comments on April 29 were CLEARLY intended to teach tolerance and respect for all groups, not to cause harm to any student or group.

"I hope that we can all learn from this experience about ways to treat one another with greater civility and respect," he went on to say. "That's the point I was trying to make, and I apologize to those who were offended by how I went about it."

{emphais mine, clearly}

Those offended instead of those I offended. Typical. No word yet from the cullud children left without a savior.

Good riddance! And kick Sandy Whitney out, too, for calling the Secret Service on her students without notifying their parents ... boot her ass, too. Posted by: Donald on May 23, 2003 04:53 PM
Fuck that! Not only should her ass be fired, the weak-assed punk Mok should go with her. Posted by: ronn on May 23, 2003 08:16 PM
