A Wisconsin high school security guard is reportedly out of a job after telling a student not to call him the N-word.

The students walked from the high school on Regent Street to the Madison Metropolitan School District's Doyle Administration Building on Dayton Street near the Kohl Center, according to a report from WMTV.

As Mr Anderson told the student to stop saying the word, himself repeating it several times, he says Mrs Talarczyk, who was present, activated her walkie-talkie microphone, allowing other staff to listen in to the interaction. Both Anderson and the teen are black. He says the student, who is black, called Anderson obscenities, including the N-word.

Anderson replied by time and again telling the boy 'Attain now not call me that, ' and repeating the racist slur that had been passe in opposition to him. He said he used it in order to tell a student not to say it.

"My father was called this word, my grandmother, my grandfather and keep going down the family line", he said. She's just trying to set me up.


On Friday, legendary singer Cher offered to pay for any legal fees Anderson may incur if he wants to sue. A number of supporters from the community were in attendance to vouch for the security guard. And I got fired.
