    Default Alabama high school teacher suspended for 'fat butt Michelle Obama' remark

    Alabama high school psychology teacher Bob Grisham has been suspended for 10 days without pay for a rant that included calling the first lady “fat butt Michelle Obama." A student in Grisham’s class made an audio recording of the remarks, which also included derogatory comments about gays.

    Grisham's suspension from Lauderdale County High School begins on Tuesday, and he has been barred from teaching his class for the rest of the school year and ordered to attend sensitivity training. Also the school's head football coach, he will be assigned "other academic duties'' for the rest of the year in place of teaching his class, according to Lauderdale County Superintendent Jennifer Gray.

    Grisham will also have to meet monthly with Mark Butler, the school system's personnel director, to make sure he is meeting his requirements. Grisham's coaching job was not addressed at the Board of Education meeting on Monday night that decided his punishment for the remarks, Butler told TODAY.com.

    Fat butt? He's on drugs. She's as skinny as a fence post.

    I think he meant it as a thinly veiled racial slur, and therefore, combining that with homophobic remarks, he should be fired if corroborated, not just suspended.

    Anyone stupid enough to make those remarks, AND to make them as a teacher in front of a classroom no less, has no business molding young minds.

    If he wasn't the football coach, betcha he would have been fired.

    He should choose his insults more carefully in the future. Extreme stupidity seems to be his crime. Yeah, deserves to be axed just for that.

    I think the bigger story here is that it seems there is at least 1 screwel teacher that is not a liberal democrat.

    Let me say first that what the guy said I think is wrong. But to all the people saying she is skinny - yes, but she does have rather wide hips. Fat, I don't know but they are a little out of proportion with the rest of her body.

    That was not a remark against you. But you know, they have all the booty video's and all of that, and I'm agreeing with you for the most part.

    I think its somewhat becoming one of those things like when racist people say that black people all have big lips and noses. This big butt Michelle thing sort of seems like the same thing to me.

    I wouldn't assume using the term fat butt Obama is racist, its no different than saying "fat ass bitch", but he was in a classroom and probably knew he couldn't use profanity. Next thing you know saying, " I own a color TV" will be considered racist.

    But she is not fat.

    Point is, the fat butt black women thing is becoming sort of a stereotype type of thing.

    I mean, we can stereotype him also... I mean, he is a coach from Alabama and clearly a homophobe. It makes sense that he is probably a racist on top of that. So there we go.

    Yes - funny that - generally speaking, women are supposed to have wide hips - we're designed that way, you know, in order to carry children...

    Dude you think almost all people from the south are some sort of backwoods rednecks. That we don't like the gays or black people and go around wearing white hoods. Which is stupid.

    And I gather this data after some of your comments regarding my part of the country over the years.

    C'mon, do you honestly think that when a white man accuses a skinny black woman of having a "fat butt" that he isn't meaning that as a racial slur?

    I would maybe give the guy the benefit of the doubt if he didn't throw in remarks about gays on top of it.

    If a person is stupid enough to make those kind of remarks in front of school children, he is probably stupid enough to be a racist.

    Is it an obvious attempt at a racially derogatory statement? No, but I would again say that it was thinly veiled, and his homophobic comments seal the deal. He's a fucking moron that should be fired.
