Reader: Maybe Rashad Turner's the problem, not the teachers

"He and his group can do and say whatever they please but everybody else is apparently a white supremacist."

"He and his group can do and say whatever they please but everybody else is apparently a white supremacist."

Reader Deb Shambo responds to Black Lives Matter St. Paul wants Como Park teacher fired for Facebook posts:

"If Mr. Turner cares so much about students, maybe he should refrain from using them as pawns in his game.

"This teacher never made any racial implication in his posts. It is unfortunate that teachers feel like they have no power to control the conduct of students in their classrooms.

"Mr. Turner seems to think it is an outlandish idea that teachers should have control in the schools and once again uses the term white supremacist with abandon, having most recently used the same term in regards to our governor and to someone he didn't even see at his door.

"He's upset about posts on Facebook, yet his posts are incendiary. You could call them hate speech. He seems to be critical of the very behavior that he himself displays; he and his group can do and say whatever they please but everybody else is apparently a white supremacist.

"This is the behavior of a bully, not someone who wants to set an example and be a positive force for change and that's too bad."
