Black activist and former teacher get into explosive debate over South Carolina classroom video
The video of a South Carolina resource officer dragging a black high school student out of her classroom has been a hot topic over the past week. However, one on-air discussion at Fox’s Houston station got so intense it quickly went viral.
Tuesday, Republican pundit Angela Box boldly told activist Quanell X that “black culture” is responsible for what happened to the young girl in the video.
“It’s time we start addressing the root cause of all this,” she declared. “The disrespect of teachers, this Black Lives Matter movement, this perpetual chip on your shoulder against everybody that’s not like yourself. It’s got to stop. We’ve got to address the culture.”
After quietly letting Ms. Box say her piece, Quanell X calmly pushed back, stating that the officer most definitely should have been indicted in addition to being fired.
“Ms. Box, nobody supports a disruptive student in a classroom because it stops other kids learning,” Quanell X explained. “But what I do have a problem with is, men should never handle a woman like the way that cop handled that little girl, to turn that desk over the way he did, grab her around her neck, then grabbed that child and threw her across the room, that is unbecoming of a man with decent character and conduct.”
Then, he want for the jugular.
“Now for you to say that we need to deal with the culture of black kids in schools,” he continued. “Let’s deal with the culture of these crazy fanatic white boys who go in schools with guns and shoot and kill everybody.”
At that point, the conversation quickly went left, turning into an explosive shouting match.
It is worth noting that Box did not back down from her initial assertion and is no stranger to controversy. Previously, she had to resign from teaching in Texas after publicly saying she wished President Barack Obama would die from Ebola.
