My 8 year old daughter and I were making a quick run to the store last night (it was pretty quiet in the car) and my daughter said "you know the N word? Well my teacher said it in class". And she went on asking me if I have ever used the word, and I told her I haven't and then she asked me why it was bad. I told her that is what people call "black people" (sorry if I offend?!) and it is not a nice word to call anyone.
So I wanted to hear more about the teacher using the word. And she said it was when they were talking about slavery and my daughter said "my teacher said
slaves were ignorant N*****s". OMG! REALLY?!!!
Now, im not sure what to do. I don't know if maybe the teacher was explaining how people used to call slaves that, or if that was her own opinion???? This teacher is highly inappropriate!! And something needs to be done, I'm pretty sure she WILL NOT be teaching next year because of everyone's dislike of her. Makes me sad that MY daughter had to have her this year :-(
Do you think I should say something or let it be? There's only a few more days left at school.
