NY Teacher Makes Racial Comment About Student’s Appearance

In October 2018, a New York teacher told an art student that “all African-Americans have big noses,” after the teacher drew a seemingly caricature of the black student. The student was disturbed by the teacher’s comment and reported it to family, who’ve since asked for the teacher to be removed. The comment is an example of systemic racism, as it differentiates between the appearance of children of color and white children.
