A teacher was suspended for a comment about the confederate flag. Cenk Uygur, Brooke Thomas, and Emilia Barrosse discuss on The Young Turks. Is it ever acceptable to use the phrase "white trash" https://tyt.com/trashtalk
"A high school teacher in Georgia was placed on administrative leave after allegedly posting a message in her classroom saying the Confederate flag symbolizes one's intent to "marry your sister."
The controversial message offended one Hephzibah High School student, who told her mom the teacher put a photo of the Confederate flag on the board with text saying: "A sticker you put on the back of your pickup truck to announce that you intend to marry your sister. Think of it like a white trash 'Save the Date' card."
Melissa Fuller told CBS affiliate WRDW that her daughter found it offensive and asked her mom what she thought. Fuller decided to post about the incident on Facebook, where fellow parents and members of the community started discussing it."*
