Teacher Suspended for 'Little Chocolate Boy' Comment   By: Claudio E. Cabrera

An African-American teacher in south Florida has been suspended in response to claims that she called a Haitian boy “the little chocolate boy nobody wanted.” Leslie Rainer, 46, was suspended for 10 days without pay following a hearing with the Broward County School Board. She allegedly has a history of anti-Haitian comments, having told one student that she wished a “boat would take him back where he came from.” “If you allow that instructor to remain in the classroom, she’s risky business,” the Haitian-American Coalition’s Jean Robert La Fortune told the board, arguing for Rainer’s dismissal before a vote was taken.
