Warning: this report contains offensive languageBecause what’s ‘offensive’ about this affair is the language, not the facts. Let’s look at those, shall we?
Jonathan Sharp, prosecuting, said the boy was described by others as “disruptive and a bully” and had taken a dislike to Uzomah in the seven weeks he had worked at the school, as a supply teacher.
Sharp said: “He did not show any especial hostility to other teachers. Mr Uzomah, however, is black.
“The defendant disliked him, claiming he couldn’t teach, and freely referred to him by the epithet beginning with the letter n, including saying it in anger just before he attacked him.”Now, for those who didn’t see the YouTube video of this ‘boy’s’ arrest before the Internet censors got to it, he himself is clearly not of white English heritage (and a hulking great lump into the boot).
So maybe that explains why he got a pass for behaviour and language that would see anyone else expelled.
But then, the rest of the class don’t win any awards, either:
Sharp said the boy told a friend the previous day that he was planning to stab a teacher and took a knife with a “substantial blade” into school on June 11, discussing his plans with other pupils.And they never uttered one peep..
What a place! It’s hard to see how they could be the breeding ground for this sort of attack, isn’t it?
Still, I’m sure a lot of handwringing in the progressive media is to follow (probably about the real victim, the poor ‘youth’…), along with demands for more anti-racism teaching.
Who knows, they might even have them up & running by the time he gets out, which could even be as quickly as three years.
