Are you white? Then you're a racist according to a teacher in Norman, Oklahoma.
During a lecture, a flabbergasted Norman North student pulled out her cellphone when she couldn't believe what her teacher was saying.
“Half of my family is Hispanic, so I just felt like, you know, him calling me racist just because I'm white... I mean, where's your proof in that,” the student told K4.
In her video, the teacher can be heard saying, “to be white is to be racist, period.” He also asks, “Am I racist? And, I say yeah. I don't want to be. It's not like I choose to be racist, but do I do things because of the way I was raised?”

The student said she felt the teacher was encouraging people to pick on people for being white.
“Why is it okay to demonize one race to children that you are supposed to be teaching a curriculum to?” her dad asked.
Norman Public Schools released the following statement regarding the issue:
“Racism is an important topic that we discuss in our schools. While discussing a variety of philosophical perspectives on culture, race and ethics, a teacher was attempting to convey to students in an elective philosophy course a perspective that had been shared at a university lecture he had attended. We regret that the discussion was poorly handled. When the district was notified of this concern it was immediately addressed. We are committed to ensuring inclusiveness in our schools.” - Dr. Joe Siano, superintendent of Norman Public Schools
The student wants her teacher to apologize and start teaching facts rather than his own opinions.
