I think some students think I'm irrationally angry when I get upset and demand immediate end to:

when students find it acceptable to yell "TEACHHHHHERRRRR" instead of simply raising their hand. i mean, ****** hell, i assume korean teachers let them do it in their classes, and how it doesn't drive them absolutely insane is beyond me

Yup. Repeatedly screaming, literally screaming, at you for attention when you are 2 feet in front of them and helping another student drives me up the wall..and it happens every single day, every single class, lol.

Also, a few students singing, laughing, turning around in their seats and doing it repeatedly after you called them out on it. Having no consequences for most things makes me crazy.

I have a rule to raise your hand and wait that we've went over many times and they still do it. I started just ignoring them and when they get quiet and raise their hand, then I pay attention to them. They seem to be catching on.

This sort of thing winds me right up.  Is there a more beloved character than Apu?  So sad.

Like the Mexican cultural appropriation this is a form of racism. Thinking Indians can't deal with someone immitating their accent as well as white people, like Scotsmen for example

+1.

CNN has become just awful. 

They are more an editorial opinion site than factual news.

Hold onnnnnnnnnnnnnn, Apu is being written off of The Simpsons due to racial stereotyping?????

Holy hell, remember when they went to Canada? And they played with Canadian stereotypes? Guess who was upset? NO ONE

But those overly sensitive, ***** Indians, I guess they're all upset. They're so bloody weak, you tell an Indian that you don't like their shirt and they crumple on the ground and cry like a little ****.

Wait............ Do I sound like an azzhole? I do, do I? Well, if you're for Apu getting written off, that's how I see YOUR thought process.

Why not write off Groundskeeper Willy? He's a walking stereotype. Professor Frink, he relies on the scientist/Nerd stereotype. Comic Book Guy?

Apu is brown though. And if you're brown, you must be so bloody weak minded that you can't handle a character like Apu.

I completely agree.

There's nothing worse than a white American/Canadian/Western person who feels the need to "protect" people of different colours.

Black guy gets shot in the back after shoplifting? Get upset.

White guy wears a sombrero? That, you can leave to the ACTUAL Mexicans. You look like an absolute knob getting upset about it ON BEHALF of Mexicans (Who are actually flattered 85% of the time)

Once I was in Mexico, and when my students gathered for a group photo, they threw a sombrero on me and gave me a ukulele to pose for the photo. One of them even commented jokingly saying "This is racist as hell," and posed with me.

That said, I saw many comments online by Indians saying Apu should STAY, as he was one of the most kind-hearted and positive characters in the Simpsons. This whole controversy is dumb and shouldn't have happened to begin with.

Remember when The Simpsons shocked and offended our sensibilities rather than coddled to them?
