Ignoring that Tupac’s “Dear Mama” has no profanity in it and is an uplifting song about black mothers. The fact the Bama teacher was so casual in saying this, speaks to how much she says it in her free time.
Students are allowed to listen to music in teacher Teddie Butcher’s food and nutrition class, but they said she complained about a song they’d chosen Friday while working on a project, reported AL.com.
The students were listening to “Dear Mama,” by Tupac, when the white teacher returned to class.
According to multiple witnesses, Butcher told students to “turn the n*gger tunes off.”
Students and their parents complained to Hoover High School administrators, and Butcher admitted to using the slur.
Butcher told the school superintendent that she was upset by profanity in the 1995 song, but parent Shenita Morrow said the lyrics do not contain any foul language.
Morrow, who is black, said she’s most concerned about the “comfort level” Butcher displayed in using the slur.
The kids had recorded her saying it, but the school made them delete the video.
I wonder why?
Hmmmm…..She hasn’t been fired.
