Is This How Madison Teacher Should Instruct About Trayvon Martin?


From a Facebook friend of James come this message regarding the ‘lesson’ taught at a Madison middle school over the shooting of 17 year-old Trayvon Martin.   The parent writes the following.

She told the kids that she thinks Trayvon got shot because he “looked suspicious” with his hoodie up. She told my daughter (who said she thought he got shot because Zimmerman was racist) that she can’t judge him: it’s like calling him a jerk. Then she proceeds to “demonstrate” how suspicious Trayvon looked by telling two Latino boys to stand up and put hoodies on (saying, “You’re not black, but you’ll do), then turns off the lights, and asks if these kids “look suspicious.”

    Or, the teacher is a racist winger who’s shear presence in the classroom actually sucks the intelligence out of the students by osmosis. And while others were protesting at the Cap. they were genuflecting in front of a dollar bill or a picture of The Wanker while thinking about string.
