So. Florida Teacher Tells Haitian Student “Stand By Trash Can, Thats Where They Belong”

Broward County, Florida public school teacher Leslie Rainer of Blanche Ely High School is being investigated for the third time by the school board for derogatory language used against her students. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel is reporting that Rainer is accused of referring to one of her Haitian students as “little chocolate boy,” and a “chocolate that nobody wanted.”

Rainer’s argument as reported in the Sun-Sentinel is to say that her use of “chocolate” was taken out of context. She said “chocolate” is an endearment in the black community. She said her husband, the Rev. Willie Rainer of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church in Pompano Beach, calls her “Sweet Chocolate.”
