A Missouri student has been suspended after filming her white geometry teacher saying the N-word multiple times during class. Now, the girl and her family are calling for the school to take away the suspension and apologize. Mary Walton, a 15-year-old student at Glendale High School in Springfield, was informed on Friday morning that she was being suspended after recording her teacher using the N-word in class. Shes still processing everything, and she doesnt understand what she did wrong, Marys attorney, Natalie Hull, shared with The Daily Beast on Monday. In the video that is currently surfacing on social media, the teacher who has not yet been identified can be heard saying, I dont like the word, the teacher says. It feels like when a Black person is using it towards another Black person how is it not still a derogatory word? I dont get it, he continues before being interrupted by a student explaining that enslavers used to use the term. Is this word, n, not allowed? the teacher asks. Dont say it right now, as a teacher, if you want to keep your job, the student says. Im not calling anyone a n, the teacher says, as the camera angle comes up and shows his face. I can say the word. Then, the teacher sees the camera recording him and tells Mary to put her phone away and demands for her to go to the office after she declines to stop recording.
