    A lot of holes in the news report. No explanation was given for what the teacher was "fed up" about. there is no justification in the story for why you called him a "bigot".

    "whatever his motivation, the rudeness of the teacher’s interruption betrayed a lack of respect for and understanding of black history"

    "Owen Cardwell, who was one of two black students to desegregate the school system in 1962 and afterward became a respected civil rights leader and a pastor, said after hearing of the interruption at Dunbar he was disappointed in the teacher."

    "'I’m really kind of surprised that a teacher does not understand that … a big part of the African-American story is steeped in spiritual tradition. And for him to take offense at the religious nature of that says to me that he’s ignorant of a culture,' Cardwell said. 'It disturbs me that he possibly could be limiting the exposure that students that he teaches would have if he didn’t have that depth of understanding.'"

    This does nothing to show it was racially motivated.
