I get the teachers/schools animosity. The student mistook their utter incompetence for racism. There's an adage under this. I'll leave it unsaid.

Racism or no, it's more than incompetence. There is a malevolent totalitarian subtext to what happened, though lots of incompetance too.

Also racism, I think. Though not necessarily on the level of the individual teechur.

Think about it ... the white teachers thinking

"what an uppity little darkey!!! Who the fuck does she think she is criticizing her betters who have dedicated their lives to helping her and her pathetic brethren out. Shit she probably doesn't even realize how much we have given"

I can hear it. The song of the wounded liberal.

I don't see anything liberal nor conservative in the narrative.

She went to her boss first. So if you're going to make it a labor issue, you have to blame this on the bosses.

Classic mill town, coupled with race, it could wind up worse, but not much.

There are a couple of things happening here. First, she's daring to "get above her raisin'" so the people above (this is not a racial thing, rather a class warfare issue like Romney's whackadoodle about college) are going to push down, and the people on her level are going to pull the crab that's about out of the bucket back in (as somebody here said a while ago). Couple that with the very apt relating of the current rich/not-rich status looking very much like pre-Civil-War Mississippi, and we have the grounds for an explosion.

I find it interesting that Beck picked this up. My only worry, given that it has Beck's hands touching it, is veracity.
