Teacher Disciplined for ‘Santa is White’ Remark

“There’s no room for that in the classroom,” he said. “Whether this teacher felt Christopher may have been wearing this out of context, there’s no room for it. There’s just no room for it.”

The incident happened the same week that Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly said on the air that both Santa Claus and Jesus were white. Her comments drew national attention and prompted a slew of heated comments on blogs and social media sites.

A spokeswoman for Rio Rancho Public Schools told The Associated Press that the Cleveland High School teacher knows he made a “stupid mistake” and has since apologized to the Rougier family.

“The remark was inappropriate and should not have been made. The teacher feels very badly about what occurred,” district spokeswoman Kim Vesely told the AP in an email. “He self-reported the incident to the principal and has apologized to the student and to the student’s parent. Appropriate disciplinary action has been taken.”

Michael Rougier said he still has concerns about the teacher. “If he has that attitude, how is it affecting students, studies, grading habits, trending toward Caucasian kids?” Rougier said.

The teacher still works at Cleveland, but Christopher has been removed from his class at his family’s request, Vesely said.

  1. Thank you for every other informstive blog. Where else may
    I get that kind of info written in such a perfect way?
    I’ve a venture that I’m simply noow working on, and I have
    been on the glance out for such information.

  2. GTFOOH! Adults “fighting” over a mythical being!? That teacher should sue! This is bullshIt!!! I suppose the Rougier guy wanted him to say Santa is black? How would the hispanics or asians feel?

  3. Could it be that Infowars is on the run ?
    Alex “Allah” Jones and his klan love to bleat on about free speech,
    yet within a week of challenging them on issues of racism Nat Turner finds he can no longer comment on the site.
    It may be as a result of challenging their disgustingly racist “cannibal” article,
    (“Castro Handshake? What About that Obama Photo Op with an African Cannibal?”)
    or it may be as a result of daring to stand up to some of the insidious racism which permeates the comments section.
    Nat is promoting a petition against the Boeremag terrorists who tried to bomb the late President Nelson Mandela and Facebook’s support of them.
    Nat says “the work with the petition will continue and that the cowardly Infowars/Prison Planet will now become a part of any further publicity”
