Race and Sex: South Carolina Teacher Student Scandal

Again…I have to say it.  I don’t want to say it, but I have to. 

What the hell is wrong with these White Women who continue to mess with these little boys!!!  Come on!!!  If this was a black man taking advantage of white children…he’s be put under the jail.  This is the second case in a year’s time.  In both cases the teachers got some real TIME instead of the standard white-privilege slap on the wrist that I’ve seen in other cases.

In Laurens County, S.C., where the tawdry topic of teacher-student sex is drawing far more attention than any of the townsfolk would like, there’s another issue being whispered out of earshot of the TV cameras – the issue of race.

In Laurens County , a northern South Carolina community of about 10,000 residents – 54 percent of whom are White and 44 percent of whom are Black – Tuesday’s jailing of 24-year-old Allenna Ward for six years marked the second imprisonment of a White female teacher for sex crimes against Black boys in less than a year.

Wendie Ann Schweikert, a former elementary school teacher, began serving a 10-year sentence in June for having sex with an 11-year-old Black boy.

Ward, the daughter of a preacher, admitted to having sex at the school where she taught, a park, a motel and a restaurant after school officials found a note she had written to one of the boys. She was sentenced to 15 years in prison for each of three counts of lewdness against the 14- and 15-year-old boys, but they were reduced to six years in prison, to run concurrently. – BET
