Letter from a Teacher. Lots and lots of PTSD out there.
I get lots of letters from teachers and cops and self are workers and other who work in the public sector.
Many sound like this: Traumatized by black mob violence.
But no one believes them.
Here’s the letter:
I am currently reading your book White Girl Bleed a Lot.
I am a white teacher working in an almost exclusively black middle school. In May of 2012, I left my classroom in an ambulance after two fighting students ran around the room at full speed and plowed into me, knocking me to the ground.
I sustained permanent back injuries and had a knee operation. This year, instead of remedial reading classes (I am a reading teacher), I was assigned full classes. From mid-September, I have been subjected to almost daily race baiting, racial and sexual taunts, threats, and attacks.
Students chase me and each other around the room with table legs, threaten to kill my “three ugly little niggers”, follow me to my car in groups shouting racial epithets and “get in a white school, bitch”. Requests to sit in a seat are met with, “Oh, it’s cause I’m black” or “Why you hate black people?” I often hear, “Imma gonna slap this white bitch”, etc.
On Oct 30 of this year, a 7th grade girl with a history of incidents against me had just returned from suspension (she had sprayed me in the face with perfume after telling me that I “smell like old white pussy”) and got angry when I changed her seat.
She said, “Oh, this damn bitch is all up in my face startin’ her shit. Imma gonna kick her fuckin’ white ass”. She then got up and gave a long racially charged diatribe about how she “can do whatever I want to the white bitch and the school can’t do nothin’. It’s just a damn school and I’m about to kick this bitch’s white ass ‘cuz I am DONE with the damn bitch”.
She ended her rant by shoving past me and shoving me to the floor.
Incidents such as these are written off as “poor instruction” or “poor planning”. When I discussed this situation with my (Black) principal, she said, “I doubt they even know you are white”. She also said, “I have to wonder of you are able to really ENGAGE the young people – to they LIKE the work you give?”
I have gone to NBC, which had me come in to the studio to film an interview, which I did, only to be told that the story was killed because “school violence is on the decline” and “we already did one assaulted teacher story already”. Ben Chapman of the Daily News seems mildly interested, but not in the racial aspect.
I have emails, incident reports, anecdotal records, etc, that show the racial and sexual hostility, the administration’s lack of response, and the media’s failure to call it what it is. I am asking if there is any way I can get this story out. I know other teachers who are in similar situations who are also fed up.
These are just some of the hundreds of examples of racial violence and lawlessness in more than 80 cities around the country as documented in my book: White Girl Bleed a Lot: The return of racial violence to America.
Thomas Sowell said : ”Reading Colin Flaherty’s book made painfully clear to me that the magnitude of this problem is greater than I had discovered from my own research. He documents both the race riots and the media and political evasions in dozens of cities.” – National Review.
