Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

English Teacher

with 2 comments

I just read an article about a teacher in London who was recently fired after an altercation with a group of Muslim students.  It didn’t go down like you think.

The teacher reported that the students in his class (some as young as 8 ) were praising the bombers behind the Sept 11th attacks calling them martyrs and claiming that when they “want to be Islamic bombers when [they] grow up”.  The students also verbally attacked the teacher claiming that because he was a Christian he was their enemy along with the Jews.

After reporting this incident, the teacher was subsequently fired and is now suing for racial discrimination.  The school he teaches at is predominantly Muslim (including the principle and assisstant principle that did the firing).

  1. How sad this situation is. Honeslty, I would not want to work with a group of muslims or anyone for that matter who praises killers, especially killers that kills thousands of innocent people. If this happened to me, I would definatly sue for racial discrimination as well.

  2. I was a little disturbed by this story. It seems like the teacher was just trying to be responsible. I believe in free speech as well, but it’s sick that they would praise murder as something justified in any way. The teacher shouldn’t have been fired. What if the kids decided to become suicide bombers? We’d be asking why no one picked up on those tendencies.
