Florida Teacher Caught on TikTok Denying Slavery Abuses & N-Word Meaning

A Florida teacher is on leave this week after audio of his Advanced Placement (AP) Government lecture went viral on TikTok. The videos are reaction shots of his student, user @elnegrosabrosoo, as he engages with the unnamed teacher and fellow students off-screen. It contains snippets from a lecture that include denying the abuses of enslaved people as well as arguing the definition of the N-word — in the middle of Black History Month.

On the video recorded by the Island Coast High School student, the teacher can be heard arguing with a student about whether or not enslaved people experienced abuse (specifically whipping) at the hands of their captors.

“They wouldn’t do that to the slaves,” the teacher says.

“How do you know that?” @elnegrosabrosoo asks. “Were you there?”
