#1 So what zero-tolerance sanction applied to the student mentioned in the story? Same as what happened to the security guard? No? Whutasurprise...

#2 Gloria Reyes, the school board president, said the school board will "review our approach, the underlying policies, and examine them with a racial equity lens understanding that universal policies can often deepen inequities."

What glorious Newspeak - this guy's not getting his job back, and these chumps might as well formally hand over control of this school to the feral brats that used to be called students.

#4 Regardless of context or circumstance

Hardly the words expected from a learned person.

#5 School Demographics

Hispanic - 19%
Black - 12%
White - 54%
Two or more races - 5%

Student calling Mr. Anderson a N---- was probably from one of the first two groups.

#6 There was a 1000-strong demonstration today: "(The students) had brought to our attention things that we had not thought about," Belmore said. " I assume that translates to "we're idiots."

FWIW, I would not trust the news reports very far. I would not be surprised to find that the incident was just a (stupid) excuse to get rid of him.
And yes, there've been a number of "disturbances" this year at the high schools. Mullah Richard is almost certainly correct.

#7 Say Sharpton, Obama, Sarandon,
"Restore Mr. Anderson's standing
Since he's really special
In ways that are racial.
Sir, blacken the air with abandon!"
