Today, after class I was chatting with my teacher, a really cool and stylish old black guy. I tell him he reminds me of one of those soul dudes from those '70s movies, right down to the pimp-walk. He tells me he walks that way because he was beaten for drinking out of the wrong fountain as a kid. FML

shhe/he wasn't steroetyping, guys. Stereotyping would be if you've never met the guy, and assumed he was a soul man. She knew him, and was talking to him, and everything, and said her teacher reminded her of them. It'd be completely different to see a bblack guy you don't know, and assume they're soulful. She wasn't being a dick.

Telling your teacher that he reminds you of a blaxploitation star is kinda... ill advised...

that's a little harsh, don't yuh think? he didn't mean to do anything wrong.

The grade should be dropped because of something that has nothing to do with the classwork? Are you an idiot? Any teacher that would drop a grade (or raise it for that matter) for personal reasons should be fired immediately.

We'll this person did not know!

Its not stereotyping bc she said he reminded her of one

"old 70's movies"? you mean blacksploitation films....super cool

Damn... I wouldn't know what to say... I would just feel bad and keep sayin sorry...

#13 My thoughts exactly =) #27 I definitely agree, but you should calm down too. What happened is not that big a deal, I have friends who makes jokes at work like "oh my God, they hired you even though you're black", and I don't flip out brandishing my Discriminations and Race Relations Act. It's only a big deal if you make it a big deal. That being said, calling your teacher a pimp is idiotic and insulting, might as well have asked him where he hides the prostitutes.
