Louisiana school officials are looking into an incident involving a white substitute teacher and an African-American student arguing over the use of the n-word after a video of the exchange went viral online. The footage, which was shared on Twitter Thursday, features the teacher “Coach Ryan” attempting to tell the student that using the n-word isn’t racist.
“That’s racist as shit,” the student can be heard responding. “Why can you not understand that it’s racist for a white man to say ‘n****r’ to a black man? It’s fucking racist.”
