Ohio Teacher Suspended After Racially Charged Trick Or Treat Rant
David Spondike took to Facebook to rail against trick-or-treaters who come from the ghetto, freely employing the “n” word.
“I don’t mind if you come from the ghetto to trick or treat,” Spondike posted. “But when you whip out your teeny ***** and **** on the telephone pole in front of my front yard and some preschoolers and toddlers, you can take your ******-*** back where it came from. I don’t have anything against anyone of any color, but *******, stay out!”
The post was taken down by late Monday morning and the 51-year-old Spondike apologized “to those who are sincerely offended” before deleting his Facebook account.
Akron Schools placed Spondike on administrative leave, and a school official said evidence from the case was sent to the Ohio Department of Education as a procedural matter.
