Kayla Renee Parker聽shared her story of how she managed to expose her racist teacher who appeared to be a wolf in sheep鈥檚 clothing.


鈥淪he wears a safety pin so everyone knows she鈥檚 an ally for minorities. Her cover photo has a Black power fist. She regularly discusses her love for the Obamas, the Black Lives Matter Movement, and her admonishment for this current administration.鈥


However, it wasn鈥檛 enough to hide her racism.聽
It all started with a simple question from a test. The question stated,聽
鈥淗istorical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren鈥檛 important in African cultures where the slaves ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents.


So, obviously, Kayla chose C. And it was incorrect. According to the teacher, the right answer was D.
The argument started when Kayla wrote her an email and respectfully provided the professor the evidence, even directly from their textbook. 鈥淗owever, my Professor continued to argue聽that family bonds were not destroyed and that 2/3 of slave families were headed by two parents.鈥 The teacher cited Herbert Gutman, sociologist, who died in 1985 and surely took part in the whitewashing of Black history.
When they met to discuss the subject in person the professor gave Kayla books to read adding such statements as, 鈥淭his book would be good for you to read. I believe it鈥檚 $6 so I could buy it for you if you鈥檇 like.鈥 The stated that she spent her whole life fighting for minorities and something like聽鈥淚鈥檝e got Black friends.鈥澛
When the girl was proving her opinion, she heard more comments as, 鈥淵ou鈥檙e talking to someone who has spent their entire life fighting for people of diversity and marched with my Black brothers and sisters.鈥


As the result, the teacher asked Kayla to lecture the class on the topic and that was her fatal mistake.
Kayla took all her courage and made a presentation on the topic she was passionate about. She defended Black people and Black history. Here鈥檚 her presentation.
That was the point where the story should end, but NO.
The professor obviously forgot about privacy settings on Facebook and posted offensive comments about Kayla.
The professor鈥檚 last words to Kayla were:
This time The University of Tennessee stood up for the student. In July the teacher officially retiring from the university.
This is fucking insane.
The last paragraph of kaya鈥檚 story is everything:


To my Professor, I forgive you for robbing me of my focus last semester. I forgive you for calling my Father, a graduate of Yale Medical School, 鈥渆ducationally challenged.鈥 I even forgive you for threatening me. However, I do not forgive you for being willfully ignorant to the subjects you teach students. I also do not forgive you for claiming to be an ally. An ally is so much more than wearing a safety pin.

Because yeah, sure, any parrot can mimic, but Alex was one of the first to prove on many occasions that he understood the meaning behind the words he said With that in mind, just think about what he said for a sec. Alex had to understand on some level that death means leaving. That's fucking mindblowing. Alex also was shown to have the intelligence of a young child, anywhere from 3 to 5 years old. He could do basic addition and subtraction, and independently taught himself the concept of zero (something that most CIVILIZATIONS couldn't do!) He had a vocabulary of thousands of words, some of which he made up himself, and had deep interpersonal bonds with many scientists and trainers, as well as other parrots.

They signed what had happened but didn't think the gorilla would understand. But she started making weeping, howling/crying sounds and the signs for bad, sad, etc. And then "Sleep, cat". She understood death. She's had two kittens since then Animals understand more than you think. Depends on the animal, yes. Animals are incredible
