Ohio Middle School Teacher Threatens 13-Year-Old With Lynching

She said Thole told her that what she actually said to 13-year-old Nathan was: "If he didn't get back on task, his friends were going to form an angry mob and lynch him".

Agee-Bell contacted the school and had her son removed from Thole's class, but school officials declined to say whether the teacher had faced any disciplinary measures.

"I told her, 'Next time you're frustrated are you going to call him a n*****?'", Agee-Bell said she asked Thole.

"I believe Mason is a community that is okay with the way it is", she said, adding, "I want the district to take ownership of this and to work to make the environment better for all students". Mason Schools spokeswoman Tracey Carson confirmed to the Cincinnati Enquirer that teacher Renee Thole was the shitty individual who threatened a child with racist murder.

She said: "As educators, sometimes we mess up".

Between 1882 and the height of the civil rights movement almost a century later, more than 3,440 African-Americans were lynched in the USA, according to the NAACP's website.

"For me, that's enough for her, as a social studies teacher especially, to be removed from the classroom", Agee-Bell told Fox 19.

According to the boy's mother, Tanisha Agee-Bell, the incident occurred in December at Mason Middle School.

"For her not to understand that the words that she said were a direct pull from what has been, what was a practice in the United States, is unacceptable", Agee-Bell told WLWT5.

Mason City School put out a questionable statement about the incident, liking the confusion of the word "lynch" to African-American students using ni**a to their friends.

Agee-Bell said she was not satisfied with the district's discipline.

"I said to him, (redacted) get to work", Thole wrote.

Agee-Bell said she then asked Thole what happened.

Thole reportedly later apologized to the class for offending Nathan and stated that she did not have harmful intentions, but Agee-Bell is still pushing for change.

An Ohio mom is outraged after learning that her son's teacher made racially insensitive comments toward him. And, even though this teacher did not set out to hurt a child - clearly that happened too. "It was awesome (Nathan) was courageous enough to confront the teacher". Sometimes these are said out of genuine ignorance. As a district, we want to be very clear.

Teens in nearby Kings, about a mile east of Mason, were banned from a youth basketball league this month for wearing jerseys with racial slurs printed on them for several weeks until a parent from an opposing team complained.

The school went on to say that they "will continue to invest in training and resources on culturally proficient practices". The letter goes on to read, "Be advised that future instances of problems in the areas we have discussed may warrant further disciplinary action to be taken against you that may lead to termination of your employment".
