A teacher in the Jacksonville, FL area recently thought he'd figured out a cute acronym for Barack Obama's theme of "change". It went as follows:
Can You Help A Nigger Get Elected?

Ah, laughs.

But the real punchline? He shared it with his seventh-grade social studies classes:
According to parents and students in Greg Howard’s seventh-grade social studies class, Howard on Friday, Sept. 26 asked the class a question regarding Obama’s call for change, and proceeded to write out what the letters C-H-A-N-G-E stood for.

“She told me that he wrote on the board ‘Can You Help A (expletive) Get Elected, and then laughed about it,” said Shelia Christian, a mother of one of Howard’s students.

Jackson County Superintendent Danny Sims said that description of this incident was “pretty accurate.”

Sims said Howard apparently repeated the action in more than one class, having made the comment in “a couple of periods.”

But behind all comedy is tragedy, and the tragedy here is that this racist wasn't even fired:
On Wednesday Howard was given a written reprimand regarding his actions, and those actions will be reported to the Florida Department of Education Office of Professional Practices, according to the school board.

As of Thursday, he was suspended without pay for 10 days, was relieved of his football coaching duties, and will be transferred to the Jackson County Adult Education program, according to JCSB.

Howard is also required to submit a letter of apology to the students involved, and is required to attend diversity and sensitivity training, the school board reported.

For the sake of that school board, I hope that guy lived to coach junior-high football and is on the verge of foreclosure unless he got the pay he'll miss. Even then, this is not justice for the poisoning of young minds this "teacher" is getting away with.

Post-racial, my ass.
