The California marketing student took to the popular platform to out his teacher for using the N-word in class – with a class project– and Twitter is going crazy. But the build-up in the presentation was pretty epic. So, it went a little something like this…
Maleek created a class presentation centered around the inappropriate use of the “N- word” and made mention of all the excuses white people come up with to justify using the derogatory term.
In the video, Maleek explains that his teacher’s use of the N-word was ‘one of the main inspirations for the decision for this project”, stating that there is no excuse or justification for the use of the word and his teacher used it twice.
And, of course, Twitter was ready and willing to hand it to this teacher on a silver platter.
She really said “I wanted someone to say “that’s wrong”, or “I take offense to that”” but when you tell her she’s wrong and it’s offensive her reply is “well, maybe they just don’t have your sensitivity.” ??????? pic.twitter.com/8yI2vclxix
Like, not even a teacher looking to create a “teachable moment” would use that word for that purpose, and just to further invalidate it, giving that excuse only AFTER you’ve been called out for doing it not just once, but TWICE… yeah, that just simply isn’t gonna fly.
He certainly gets an A+ in our book. If only we had more people willing to stand up for what’s right, no matter the cost. And even more people willing to take their stand to Twitter, because well… we’re here for the entertainment.
