Nigger Bullies Teacher - Commas to Follow


By reading headlines from different media sources across the interwebs regarding the exact same story, we get an idea just how politically, socially, and racially polarizing a force our media is:

Veteran teacher fired for actions while defending bullied student

Arizona Teacher Fired For Defending A Bullied Student

Ariz. Teacher Fired for Defending 9-Year-Old From Students Using N-Word

Arizona School District Fires Teacher For Not Letting Racist Kids Bully A Black Student

Now, I will attempt to summarize the story by sticking only to the facts held in common throughout these articles:

1) A teacher in Arizona, Pam Aister, was fired by the Four Peaks Elementary School.
2) On Monday, school district officials voted 4 to 1 to uphold Aister's termination.
3) Aister says "lies" have been told about how she handled herself while standing up to 5 students who have been accused of bullying a student in her class.
4) The bullied student says he was taunted with slurs such as: "You belong to a zoo", "stupid head", "monkey", "crackhead".
5) Unnamed sources claim Aister threatened the bullies, said "shut up", and mentioned one's "ugly face".
6) A mother with children at the school said at Aister's appearance before school district officials that "this was their opportunity to finally bring to light the way that she treats certain children."

Now, consider the headlines again: 

Veteran teacher fired for actions while defending bullied student

Only this headline is supported by the facts. No one seems to be denying the student was bullied, it is the perception of Aister's handling of the confrontation with the bullies upon which there is disagreement.

Arizona Teacher Fired For Defending A Bullied Student

No - it is was not that she defended the student, it is the manner of the defense. This headline is at least inaccurate, and I suspect it is deliberately over-simplifying.

Once again, the defense is not why she was fired - it was the manner of the defense that was up for consideration. Note that not every story reports Aister's claim that the bullies called the bullied the n-word. “He was called the n-word, ‘monkey,’ and ‘coon,'” Aister said during an interview with KNXV." I find it strange that she felt the need to list the names the boy had been called. Why not just say he was the victim of racial abuse? If he had been teased for being thought queer, would Aister have felt compelled to say "They called him homo, and butt-fucker, and banana crammer, and queen mary, and Lord Faggot of Fudgepack Mountain!" I suspect the point of such language is to up the outrage - no longer was she merely defending a bullied child, the child was being called a nigger! Ooooooo - that's so much worse, which makes her so much better!

Ha! So then, it was the school board's intention for Aister to let racist kids bully a black student? That's just terrible dontcha know. Hands up! Time to loot for ... derp! ... I mean march for justice again.

    This has opened up a slot for another entitled affirmative action hire to strut their stuff and show us all how it's done.
