Another day, another racist.
A teacher in Akron, Ohio was suspended this week after he decided to air his racist grievances on Facebook. Akron Firestone High School teacher David Spondike, was angry about a trick-or-treat incident near his house and dropped the n-bomb a couple of times.
I don’t mind if you come to my neighborhood from the ghetto to trick-or-treat. But when you whip out your teeny dicks and piss on the telephone pole in front of my yard and a bunch of preschoolers and toddlers, you can take your nigger-ass back where it came from. I don’t have anything against anyone of any color, but niggers, stay out!
In typical racist coward fashion, Spondike deleted his post, but not before someone on his friends list was able to take a screenshot and forward it to the local Akron news station. Once Spondike realized his post was now “viral” he had this to say:
There is a screen shot of a post floating around that is being used claim I am a racist. My position on race and racism has been posted and discussed here on many occasions and is exemplified on a daily basis in my life. I have always been clear and have never minced words on this issue. I have always confronted it head on and never behind peoples’ backs. Please do not expect me to be anything less than consistent today.
So is he basically saying he’s racist and they (his Facebook friends) know it?
Spondike also updated his post before deleting it with his “views:
1. The post contains the “n-word”.
2. I sincerely apologize to those who are sincerely offended by the post; it was promptly removed.
3. I am not going to say that “someone hacked my Facebook page”, like most people do.
4. “Racism” implies prejudging, which is clearly not what happened here.
5. Making any excuse for allowing one race to use a word and condemning another race for using the same word is institutionalized racism in and of itself, regardless of the justification used.
6. The incident surrounds the criminal behavior described below, where a teenager exposed himself in front of young children, urinating on a telephone pole in broad daylight during trick-or-treating.
Coincidentally, the black students make up the majority of Akron Firestone High School’s population. Spondike also has a track record when it comes to disciplinary action brought against him at the school. In 2000, he was reprimanded for throwing a chair against a classroom wall, and using strong profanity against students. A year later, he was disciplined for spitting on the floor after a student in his class fell asleep. And in 2007, he was accused of physically abusing a middle school student, an allegation that was found to be unsubstantiated after investigation by the district and Akron police. Spondike was also referred to counseling by school administrators. Guess that really didn’t work out for him.
