A New Jersey high school teacher has been removed from classrooms while the school investigates him for allegedly using vulgar and racist language.

Teacher Howard Zlotkin's alleged expletive-filled rant reportedly occurred during a Zoom class with students at Jersey City's William L. Dickinson High School. Some of his offensive language was said to be directed at Black students. He can be heard on video, apparently captured from the Zoom session, calling George Floyd "a f**king criminal."

The Zoom class reportedly started with a lesson on climate change but quickly shifted as Zlotkin unexpectedly began a tirade against the students.

"If you think I'm privileged, then f**k you, because my daughter thinks I'm privileged and I don't speak to her," he can be seen saying during the class recording.

8. So, first we have to clean up and clean out the police forces. Next, the teachers...sigh...

And probably next the physicians....

23. Another case of "The Brainwashing of my Dad" with Fox News, only a teacher?

Its like that other documentary about eating only Macdonald's food for a month. Only its your brain that gets more unhealthy, and bitter, and annoying.

14. Note to self: If going on Zoom, don't get drunk first.

What else would make a supposedly smart teacher act so dumb?

Or, as any good Geography teacher knows: It's 5pm somewhere.

16. There are many dedicated and wonderful teachers in our classrooms. He is not one of them.

I have many family and friends who are teachers. None of them would ever think to behave so rudely to students of any ethnicity. We have a lot of retraining to do to get racism at least reduced. I doubt it will ever go away entirely.

17. Whoa, did he honestly believe his behavior

would go unnoticed? He was on Zoom and his comments were heard by a lot of students. The odds that he was being recorded were pretty good. It was almost like he wanted to get caught.

18. More coherent artilce with clips of the video

While the article linked in the OP mentioned a second video, it did not explain what that was. This article from a local source does explain the two videos and the delay by the school in removing Zlotkin from the classroom:

19. Thanks for that link, csziggy.

The video was shocking - the guy is shocking. Subjecting students to that kind of racist hate should get him banned from teaching anywhere else forever.

20. I think for many, doing Zoom meetings and classes have broken down barriers

Like the people in stages of undress and doing bodily functions, I suspect this man is normally like this and forgot the barriers that should exist between teachers and students. In a way that is good - think of how long he must have been distorting what he teaches to fit his bizarre view of the world.

Oh, and sounded a little drunk to me, which also lowers barriers.
