So. Many of you will have heard about Dave Burk, the Geneva High School teacher who recently brain-bombed his Consumer Education class with the statement “How would you feel about your tax dollars going to pay some black fag in New York to take pictures of other black fags?”
Predictably, this two-for-the-price-of-one bazooka of bigotry detonated all over the Webbertubes and resulted in one of his gay students, Jordan Hunter, filing a complaint.
It turns out that the Geneva School Board have finally got together and voted unanimously to slap him on the wrist with a wet bus ticket. I mean Good Lod, not only did he have to say “sorry”(!) but they’ve informed him that if he keeps being a racist homophobe out loud using his speaking words he might, you know, one day lose his job(!!)
Very telling was the choice of words he used in his “apology”. He stated that he “used a very poor example of words to make [his] point” (oh ya think?) and that “The message I conveyed was insensitive and hurtful. This is not what I had intended.”
Well great. Maybe we all should run around ranting racist homophobic crap in public and then act all hurt and surprised that people get offended. I mean maybe we’re all retarded three-year-olds with Tourette’s, right? Maybe we don’t get that screaming BLACK FAGS at room full of young people might not get the dignified nods of acceptance and understanding that we were shooting for.
I’m going to file Dave under D for “dimwit” and the Geneva School Board under G for “gutless.”
Good day to you all.
