The incident reportedly happened at the Holdenville High School on Friday between an unnamed teacher and an unidentified male student.
During the altercation, the student attempts to leave the classroom, telling the teacher that he plans to “walk home” but she responds by telling him “I’m keeping you here.”
As they argue, the teacher attempts to block the student’s exit from the room by grabbing his rucksack which prompts the boy to say, “you better watch where you touch me.” It is not clear from the video whether he uses any offensive language towards her in that sentence.
The teacher then responds to this with a racial slur. “You better get yourself over there, n*****, do it,” she says, which is greeted with an audible gasp from other students in the classroom.
