It seems that the state of Florida keeps popping up in the news lately for one racist incident after another. Parents are fighting mad over a teacher who chose to compare a black student to an orangutan. Their anger didn’t seem to mean much to the school district, who simply gave the teacher a tiny s**p on the wrist for her indiscretion. Maybe after all of the racial tensions over the Trayvon Martin case, there are Floridians who are willing to admit that they see young black men as nothing more than animals set for slaughter.

Some parents in Florida are livid over their school district’s decision to issue only a verbal warning to a teacher who compared her student to an orangutan. Music teacher Lauren Orban at Rogers Garden Elementary School said the following in a conversation on Facebook with two other teachers:
“I’m fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans,” the teacher said on the social networking site. The child to whom she was referring is not white. The comment received a few responses including one asking her to reveal to whom she was referring.
