White Teacher Won't Be Punished For Threatening Black Student With Lynching

You'd Be Lynched If...: White Teacher Warns 13-Year-Old Black Student

Agee-Bell says that Thole told the mother that her exact words were: "If he didn't get back on task, his friends were going to form an angry mob and lynch him".

Agee-Bell told WXIX-TV that her son, Nathan, reported that Thole "had told him that if he didn't get back on task, that his friends were going to lynch him, and we thought he must have misunderstood".

Agee-Bell condemned the Social Studies teacher and questioned her leadership in the classroom.

'For me, the issue that she said it, that's a problem, but that she didn't see anything wrong with that she said, that's a bigger problem'.

Thole would apologize in class for offending Nathan and said she didn't have harmful intentions.

"I would say, yes the teacher did confirm she said that", Tracey Carson, a spokeswoman for the Mason School District, told ABC News.

"As educators, sometimes we mess up", Carson said. Thole said she didn't mean it "the way it came out", and apologized to the child in her statement to the administration.

Between 1882 and the height of the civil rights movement almost a century later, more than 3,440 African-Americans were lynched in the US, according to the NAACP's website. The district has not removed Thole, and has yet say whether any disciplinary action will be taken against her.

The Journal-News reported that Thole was reprimanded and told in a letter from officials that "comments that make reference to harming a student are not appropriate even in jest", especially "when they make reference to lynching an African-American male student".

The school district released a statement about the incident that was published by Fox19.

"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 said.

Agee-Bell said she doesn't allow Nathan to play with Airsoft guns because she fears neighbors will call police, and she blames herself for moving to Mason.

Tanisha Agee-Bell, the boy's mother, admits her son is a talker and something of a class clown, but rightly insists the teacher went overboard. "That's not satisfactory at all", she said.

She cried remembering the way Nathan told her about the incident.

"My son was walking around thinking he did something wrong", she told the newspaper, crying. However, she said the district "investigated, documented, and set expectations for (the) future".

She said two other children with parents on the council have experienced similar racially-charged situations in the last few months. School employees tweeted about the event using the hashtag, #MasonShines. "Clearly, that was the case here", the district said.

Few days ago, a youth basketball team in Warren County was banned from the league for wearing jerseys with racist names printed on the back.

Agee-Bell plans to return to the next board meeting.
