But the teacher doesn't want his actions defended in the context of the class. He wants to be vilified for mistreating the twit kid to show how certain ethnic groups feel mistreated. His lesson plan backfires here on FR.
I'm glad I wasn't in his class.
Nobody ever makes me get on the floor!
The NFL's 2006 season is going to be grand! Games on Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday nights plus the usual Sunday card. This could hammer the bar and restaurant business but I don't really care. I've got my La-Z-Boy and my Sony LCD all set for some serious "cooping." Gosh, when is it going to be September? (No sarcasm here, seriously.)
I have a cousin who was an offensive lineman for the Dallas Cowboys for 7 years. I live in Pittsburgh. No one in my family, myself included, has ever worn a Dallas Cowboys jersey.
Stupid. This is an ethics class and was meant to teach him how other people would feel if mocked. It was done in jest and he's an idiotic if he thinks it was serious.
I don't support an ethics class but that's what it would be for.
This has to be one of the most ignorant statements I've ever seen on FR.
And I'm a Browns fan ... and I lived in Denver from 84-00 ... and I endured the torture of watching the Broncos beat up the Browns in 3 AFC Championship games ... but it felt better knowing the Browns were beaten by one of the greatest QB's who ever played the game. Even I was thrilled watching "The Drive."
When the Browns became the Ravens I rooted for the Broncos and watched Elway win them two Super Bowls. I would say Elway was the 2nd greatest QB of all time, next to Joe Montana.
It's meant to teach the majority of the class the benefit of conforming with authority and pick on the designated scapegost
That's one of the most ignorant overreactions ever seen on FR.
"This was a serious error on the part of the teacher.
Kelly should be fired or reassigned."
Is this another example of teacher/student sado/macho sex scandal? s/off
Let me get this straight. You are comparing a kid wearing a football jersey to one of the most militant inhuman death-cult governments to ever exist? I guess you are serious about your football.
So the kid did something stupid. So what. Kids do that. But for a teacher to crawl in the judgment sewer with the kid is no excuse. This teacher was wrong to single out a kid, especially over such trivial circumstances. I hope they properly discipline this idiot teacher.
I knew someone would take this stand LOL. I think you realize(at least I hope you do) that I was making a point about symbols and their meaning. The comparison is valid from that angle.
The teacher claims that it was part of a class exercise related to his ethnic relations class. Was it? I don't know. It sounds plausible.
I never said I thought what was done was right. The teacher might have crossed a line and if it is determined he did he should be told about it.
