    Re: African Americans in Montana

    Billie,

    It is a good thing you are leaving the south. I'm sure the racism
    you demonstrate in your classroom doesn't help the student any.
    Maybe you should leave teaching there is no room left for racism
    in this day in and time. Especially, since you have a black
    president!
