Is the female student white or black? If white charge him with a hate crime, if black she will just be another one that is now a single mother and a success of the democrat education system.

Marcus, it doesn't matter if she's black, white, pink, green, purple or polka-dotted. He took advantage of a young girl. Given the fact he was a special education teacher, more than likely this young lady has some kind of disability which makes it more troubling. It's not about race or politics...it's about a grown man in a position of authority who should know better.

All he had to do was just wait another year. Cut it off and hang his sorry azz by the toes.
