White Teacher Won't Be Punished For Threatening Black Student With Lynching

Nathan 13

Agee-Bell said the teacher gave a slightly different version, saying she actually told Nathan that if he didn't get back to work, his friends would form "an angry mob and lynch him".

And Thole, when confronted by Nathan in class, questioned why the student thought her comment was racist and offensive, Agee-Bell told Cincinnati.com.

"I told her, 'Next time you're frustrated are you going to call him a n*****?'" she said.

"I don't know if she's racist, but I know that what she said is racist".

Nathan said he feared his mom would be upset that he questioned his teacher, and didn't tell her about the comment for around a week, according to Cincinnati.com.

Welling up with tears, Tanisha accused Mason City Schools of setting up initiatives such as LGBTQ safe spaces for children, but failing to take advice on how to prevent vulnerable kids from being bullied.

"As educators, sometimes we mess up - and clearly that happened here", said Tracy Carson, a spokeswoman for Mason Schools.

"This is a serious miss on her part", said district spokeswoman Tracey Carson, adding that Thole's comment is especially disturbing given the horrific national context of slavery, segregation and lynching.

Between 1882 and the height of the civil rights movement almost a century later, more than 3,440 African-Americans were lynched in the USA, according to the NAACP's website.

Renee Thole, a teacher at Mason Middle School, was reprimanded and ordered to undergo cultural sensitivity training by schools officials, according to OH media reports. The school district's response to the incident was "flippant", according to her.

Thole admitted she had acted out of frustration, and Agee-Bell agrees her son should have been focused on his work - but she said the explanation was completely unsatisfactory. Once Agee-Bell was made aware of the comment, she called the school to complain and request Thole apologize to the class, which she did. Clearly, that was the case here. It was incredible that this young black man was fearless enough to confront his teacher when the incident happened.

"My son was walking around thinking he did something wrong", Agee-Bell said.

The district said in a statement the teacher did not mean to offend the student, stating that it has seen an uptick in racially insensitive comments, sometimes arising from "genuine ignorance".

The school went on to say that they "will continue to invest in training and resources on culturally proficient practices".

It's unknown if the teacher will face any other disciplinary action, local outlets reported. "I don't know if she's racist, but I know that what she said is racist".

During the public portion of the Mason school board meeting Tuesday, officials praised a guest speaker who discussed race and empathy at the district last week. As a district, we want to be very clear.
