Gahhhhhhhhhhh! DS came home today and told me that he has the MOST RACIST person he has ever met for a teacher. Apparently she has a 'thing' against Muslims and decided to use her business math class as a platform for a rant regarding the whole Muslim/Mosque/Ground Zero situation. This is not the 1st time she has spewed her opinion about Muslims as the Towelhead comment was made last week during another lapse in her judgement. Now, we dont live in a very diverse community BUT there is no way that she could know if anyone in that room was a Muslim. I am half tempted to get my boy a rug and have him request prayer time during her class **insert evil laugh*. I dont even understand what on earth would make a TEACHER think that this was acceptable? She is obviously welcome to her opinions but from 8am-3pm...they have no place in her world. What if she felt this way about Hispanics? African Americans? Yankees? ( ) etc etc. Would she feel free to rail against any of them while my tax dollars are paying her salary. Am I wrong to be this annoyed? And why do these things always happen on a Friday so I have to stew all weekend til I can get the Principal on the phone? UGH!
