Dr. Umar Johnson Talks America's War Against the Black Man

As an educator and former principal, Dr. Umar Johnson takes the time to discuss the appropriateness of #TeacherBae’s form fitting attire. While DJ Vlad feels that the elementary school teacher was not dressed to suit her profession Umar asserts, “the way she’s dressed is relatively conservative compared to the way I see many teachers dress.” He goes to say that she shouldn’t be penalized for having a curvaceous body, and questions who is to blame in this scenario the employee or the system that allows teachers to wear what they’d like to school each day. He does, however, feel that the attire would be unacceptable if she were teaching anywhere from sixth to twelfth grade.

He then uses how the Black man in society is criminalized in America to strengthen his point about who is responsible for enabling certain behaviors. “How about the system? That creates the reality; that necessitates that I commit a crime…desperation would make me consider going to the corner to sell that package; which is why we have to be very careful about blaming the person or separating them from the context in which the behavior took place. The context in which she wore that dress is that the unions in that school district make it allowable.”

The self-proclaimed Pan-African also dives into why when his school, The Fredrick Douglass Marcus Garvey Academy, is built he will not be hiring Black teachers who are interracial romantic relationships. His belief is that it is important for Black students to see the strengthen of healthy and positive Black relationships. And he explains the statistics on Black men marrying outside their race, Black women ranking amongst the lowest when it comes to marriage, and how that is an effect of self-hate in some sense. He also then explains why he does not feel a child can be biracial, and why it is hard for white mothers to be honest to their Black children.

  1. Umar Johnson as smart as he is IS A DUMMY. YOU ARE NOT BLACK IF YOUR FATHER IS NOT BLACK. JUST BECAUSE YOU HAVE A WHITE OR (SOME OTHER MAKE UP OF ) MOTHER DOESN'T MEAN YOU ARE ANYTHING OTHER THAN WHAT YOUR FATHER IS. IF YOU ARE WHITE AND HAVE A CHILD WITH A BLACK WOMAN. THAT CHILD IS A JUST A DARKER SKINNED CAUCASIAN. IF YOU ARE BLACK AND HAVE A CHILD WITH A WHITE WOMAN, YOUR CHILD IS BLACK. PERIOD.NO MATTER HOW LIGHT YOUR CHILDS SKIN IS.
    HAVING ISSUES WITH SKIN COLOR DOES NOT CHANGE THE FACT. JUST LIKE THAT FACT DOES NOT CHANGE THE ((OTHER)) FACT. THAT CERTAIN PPL CANT STAND DARK SKIN OF ANY KIND, OR THE FACT THAT YOU MAY HAVE A BLACK PARENT.
    PPL DON'T WANNA BELIEVE THAT BLACKS HISPANICS (LATINOS ) AND NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS ARE ACTUALLY ((ONE RACE)) HEBREWS. REGARDLESS OF SKIN COLOR.

  2. A lot of the arguments are subjective. And one has to look at the context and intentions behind each case. The lady wearing the dress. What the fuck is she suppose to do? Dress like a nun? She has ass and titties. There is nothing that she can do about this. Is her intentions to entice the students? No. What she is wearing is not sexualized. It's sold at a typical clothing department store. Now the lady with the jeans and top. I'll challenge one with the same questions. As someone stated on here already. If this were a skinny woman, with no ass and titties wearing the same clothes. This wouldn't even be a topic at all. Which tells me that people are distracted by what nature has given her. And it's apparent to me that she's being more condemn for her assets than about what she's wearing. Western society is so fucked up with their contradicting morals and shit. There are cultures that still live nude, where the women walk around with their breast out. The reason why you can't do that here, is due to religious bull shit where what they've made this taboo, and peeks people's curiosity.

  3. Lust is lust period. No matter what a woman wears if the man is atteacted to her he's gonna lust regardless. My teachers were dressed professional but we loved when she would lean over to see her breast cleavage. Lust is lust.Moral knowledge is taught at home. The parents are ultimately responsible.

  4. I think she is dressed a little bit too loose. My opinion. Because look, she too thick to be out here wearing clothing that over compliments her curvaceous figure. She look like a snack.

  5. Why ain't nobody talking about the industrial trade programs that were taken out of the public schools?!? I had to run across this interview to find this out? 😤😠✊
