Lower

In one class, we were reading a story and the teacher had preassigned each student to read a specific section out loud. When it came time for me to read, the section my teacher had chosen had the N word in it. I don’t think it was a coincidence. It made me feel super uncomfortable. I understand why she might have thought that in the class of all white students having the black student say the N word might be the lesser of two evils but honestly I still felt awful.
