Why is the assassination of President Obama being used as a teaching tool in Alabama? The teacher, in northwest Jefferson County at Corner High School, was apparently using the example of where to stand and aim if shooting Obama as an example for teaching geometry to his math students. This being Alabama, of course the teacher was not taken into custody or charged with a crime. He's not even getting fired. His superintendent said, "It was extremely poor judgment on his part, and a poor choice of words."

If it were Bush, the guy would be under a jail to this day. Can anybody say "double standard"?

Your regionalism or stereotyping people who live in a geographical location is almost as bad as racism, which you are guilty of. You even have a hint of racism against whites in your comment.

Alabama, South Carolina and Oklahoma are known for taking the lead in opposing Jim Crow laws and lynchings. They just got bad press.

Those states have always been bastions of the progressive ideals of human and civil rights. They just continue to get bad press.

May I tell you another fairytale?
