Jury finds Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts

A Wisconsin jury found Kyle Rittenhouse not guilty on all counts after the Illinois teenager shot and killed two men and wounded a third at a protest last year.

They should not let kids have their phones in class. You're being sensitive is going out of logic and common sense... And why would that be racism or discrimination? I just went to NY and sang Sinatra's song while walking, is that offensive too? To whom? In the US anything that has to do with minorities is offensive nowadays. Stop over protecting... THAT sure is offensive!

Mad at this woman but ok with Native American adult costumes 🥴 Well I guess for Halloween all the kids & all the adults will be dressed as snowflakes ❄️ because there's nothing else allowed to wear as a costume & be as 😜😂🤣 Everything is offensive now. 😂🤭 Good. Intentional or not, she was ignorant for that and there should be some type of reprimand.

Love watching the freak show that is the US. Good We all mimic people and things to attract attention, this we do harmlessly at one time or another of our lives. Moreover, I love math teachers and I am what I am due to them (I ended up a Scientist/Engineer). Also, I love native Americans — my wife to be is one of them!

And our prime minister has a fan club

California teacher accused of mocking Native Americans placed on leaveThe Riverside, California, teacher wore paper feathers and chanted during a math lesson. Thank God. Why wasn't she fired? I was impressed by the professionalism of Mr Dereck0111 From the moment of my first free consultation,to the moment I got my profit,She's trustworthy,reliable and understanding... Dereck0111

I'm Native American and if this teacher was using her 'costume' for good I approve of it. no it was not offensive at all! You people really need to get over yourself! She was just citing an example that's all! We are a silly people --Bill Maher If it's teaching about it, it's awesome... Now if she said it's all fake, then problem.

Give me a break! To me, if she wanted to demonstrate the native american culture, she should have brought in a true native american. Not only mimicking whatever she was doing wasn't even close. I should know, I have native americans as personal friends. On leave she should be “fired” ..my great grandmother was full blooded Cherokee disgusting to see such from anyone… let alone a supposedly educated person..

Braves fans see nothing wrong with her dance Maybe if she put on black face and started singing about watermelon and fried chicken it would get the message across why this isn't a great thing to do The Universe has spoken 🙏

Outrage as teacher mocks Native American dance wearing feather headdress: 'disrespectful'Outrage as teacher mocks Native American dance wearing feather headdress: 'disrespectful.' A Native American high school student filmed his teacher appearing to mock his culture, explaining he felt 'that violence was being committed against him.' Epic fail. 😂 What is wrong with people in America?

Omg So a teacher was placed on leave for doing absolutely nothing wrong? What a surprise... We have lost our minds… Do you have any idea how difficult is to engage moronic teenagers into learning? She needs to be fired. CNN is SOFT, CALI IS SOFT, THE UNITED STATES IS SOFT. WOKE NATION, CANCEL CULTURE, TRASH!

She knew what she was doing. That’s the sad part. A person who just lives their life solely out of hurting others is not comical. That State has to a hell in a basket. Any comments from the View?. Why mock our culture to teach math? Why hasn't she been fired before now? education resign INDIGENOUSCULTURE

Git woke!!

Teacher Filmed Chanting In Fake Native Headdress, Waving Air TomahawksCalifornia's Riverside school district called the teacher's behavior 'offensive' and 'completely unacceptable' while announcing her leave from the classroom. Good. That's progress that the school dist is not denying that it's racist, offensive, and completely unacceptable. How stupid is she that she even thought to do this, let alone did it Next we'll see her crying on Fox 'News' about how unfair it all is. Inland Empire... go figure. Great, Nobody placing on leave CBPBuffalo agents who mistreated and humiliated Canadian at US border - despite DIRECT DEMANDS FOR INVESTIGATION to POTUS SecMayorkas SecBlinken But they place on leave School Teacher America, what is wrong with you?

Harmful in what way? 🤔🤔🤔 Every teacher I had in grade school told us to sit indian style. Should we just cancel everything that made us who we are? People unaffected by racism and racist/disrespectful behavior will NEVER see that actions such as this are an issue. Because they don't believe any culture besides their own is/was civilized.

If a black woman has blond hair (very common) should white people be outraged ? Honest question. US is committing PC suicide. A math teacher teaches divisions? Absolutely stupid He should sue !!! Good! If she was doing a demonstration/teaching and not making fun of native Americans then she was doing her job

You can’t say or do anything nowadays in fear of upsetting some fka or the other

Cut her some slack , she wore a mask… This is totally uncalled for how would you treat the teacher like that do you with this what kind of standard are we leaving for our future teachers. Let me ask the district who penelise the teacher for making use of cultural refreneces, how do you even preserver culture?

I honestly had to google what SOH CAH TOA meant, since I haven't done any trigonometry since high school. No. Just no. There are undoubtedly any number of ways to teach the mnemonic without being a culturally-insensitive asshat. Subtract this math teacher. No Noo, I think she is an Island boy! Sine, cosine, tangent. Fuck modernity and this culture that esteems victimhood above all. I only hope that this teacher is/was one of the bad ones so that I don't have to feel bad for her.

Good! Stop disrespecting the native people! Should be fired 😡 We have a theory we'd like to teach that explains why this is bad mathteacher1978

WordAboutRapture 여러분의 창조주는 하나님이십니다 God bless Trump the word need him now Take your kids out of public school. Is that what they call cultural appropriation taken to the limit Hope its paid leave. Like the Police get that murder people Stahhhhp... 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 good! Unsettling this happens in America over and over. From professionals

I’ve taught for over years. What educational benefit does this display serve? Knowing high school students well, I read their silence as forms of discomfort and tension. No teaching and learning occur here—-just outrageous theater that disturbs kids. I don’t see a problem

Big deal what’s the problem Native American Evidently you haven't seen Native Americans celebrating thier culture! Idiot Lol Maybe she's teaching them deductive reasoning 'your teacher is an imbecile when she wears a headress...' must have been high on something to think it was ok. Good. It's tacky and tasteless but I don't believe she meant harm. I believe this was a poor attempt to engage with her students, but he ability to read the room and not note that some students may have native ancestry should mean a talk with admin. She should not be fired.

I dont think she's racist. She just a clueless goofy teacher. Don't you love this time of year when people think of natives as a Halloween costume or a Thanksgiving decoration...or dress up like this weird white lady to mock natives. 😑 so very disrespectful. I watched the video and I found it ridiculous and embarrassing. She has probably been doing this every year. I'm sure there is a better way to teach. Not even sure how this related to what she was teaching.

Are you kidding me maybe she's JUST TEACHING. Was this display intentional to offend others? Literally every elementary school in 90s Instead of punishing people in a lame attempt to be PC how about actually asking native Americans how they feel and truly get to the truth instead of how more caucasians feel. How about Biden and Harris wearing those African robes That’s offensive.

Only in teaching (people with degrees) are professionals expected to act like entertainers with these antics to have their subject area taken seriously. Good intentions, poor delivery. SMH. No one cares about intent anymore. This teacher was trying to be creative to help students remember trigonometric principles. Was it a poor choice? Sure. But She should receive more training not be crucified - we need to support teachers who care not punish them.

You wanted them to teach critical race theory didnt you Pleas, all non Native ppl saying, 'I don't get it' just stop. Your job is not to 'get it' it's to listen and learn. When the old dude in your office gets fired for rubbing women's shoulders as a greeting he and all old dudes say the same thing, 'I don't get it'. Get it?

i hope we never see an actor or actress play an indian person in a show or a movie because she was not making fun of them or their culture better yet no one better dress up for Halloween because it offensive now to everyone damn snowflakes But the native Americans are white I dont get it didnt they pay 5 dollars to placed on the dawes roll ?

There is nothing wrong with this!!!!! She was making learning a complicated class interesting! In no way is this derogatory!! I would love for her to be in a classroom and hope she had many job offers!!!!!!!! What you want to bet she's a big liberal? Why are you so sure that she is making fun of the Native American culture?

She looks more high on drugs than “dancing” 😒 Jesus Christ, I remember everyone would dress up as Indians, or pilgrims in school during November. People making something outta nothing everyday now. Sounds like someone needs to take a Critical Race Theory class. Fire her. What is wrong with Amerikkka? Did she paint her face red?

Math or meth class

Time to run out and send her death threats and ruin her life. (Sarcasm) oh no, not in the land of freedom I believe this teacher is trying to strengthen her students, aiming a brighter future of all ethnic groups. I hope all parts will learn a lot from this misunderstanding, without hypocrisy, and that she'll keep her job position. Math needs enthusiastic teachers indeed!

She need to go to the psycho ward for 72 hours that's not normal I think she had a nervous breakdown y'all losing it What a joke! The school should not get any taxpayer money! So if I’m Italian, I can’t wear a kilt or beat Congo drums? WTF is going on here? This shit is getting out of control and stupid!

My God. I cannot bear the second-hand shame I have just from watching this embarrassing display. The kids must have been trying to claw out of their own skin with cringe! She must be one of those “woke veil has been lifted” type of liberals who call blacks racist and wear their hair purple Drug test her.

And what was wrong with that? The question is. Was there a teaching moment to this? What did she actually do wrong? CNNisaJOKE

She should be fired. Wtf is 'on leave'. What right does she have to teach our kids bigotry? She lost that right! Had she done a Nazi song and dance routine, I bet she would not be within 500 yards of that school and 'Fired' from teaching. How? I just can't think why people do this. There must be 1000 ways to make learning more fun--why pick one that might offend someone and get you in trouble?

She should be FIRED - end of story. This kind of behavior should NOT be acceptable by anyone. She is a DISGRACE to the teaching profession. So sensitive people... Appropriate response. Oh boy 🤦🏻‍♀️ I wonder why children are using cell phones inside classrooms when they are suppose to be paying attention to class. We all don't know why the teacher was doing that to begin with. It is sickening that everybody is to touchy nowadays.

That was not racist.. she can come to my kids school and teach anytime.. I thought that was Elizabeth Warren.

was she teaching about Native American dance? I saw the partial video clip and there was nothing offensive about what I saw. I learned trig w/a different mnemonic 25 years ago for fucks sake. Today as an instructor I take great care in my delivery. This teacher did not. Read the fucking room Unmanaged manic episode

can someone tell me how there are so many blonde haired, blue eyed Republican women? Are they all clones, programmed to marry Republicans? There just aren't that high a percentage of blonde haired, blue eyed people on the planet, except in southern states like Texas. lol I lost brain cells watching that video
