Todd Meehan, 18, a senior who plans to attend Iowa Western Community College for radio broadcasting, said he was in Crystal Holt’s class when the teacher used the N-word. “She shouldn’t have said it in the classroom,” he said. “We were talking about a case where this guy should get the death penalty or life in prison and we were having an issue coming to a conclusion in the case, and she comes and says, ‘It might help you if you knew he went to a party and said he was going to kill some black people and then she used air quotes and then she said the N-word with a hard R (the full slur rather than a shortened version) and at first we were just kind of shocked. We weren’t really ready for it.”
