Mother Angry As School Pronounces Daughter’s Name As A Slur
A Rochester, NY mother is livid after receiving multiple “robocalls” from her daughter’s high school that pronounce her name as a racial slur.
Nicomi Stewart received the typical automated notification call that comes to parent phones when a child misses class after her daughter, Nicarri, stayed home from Edison Career and Technology High School one day last week.
The issue…the robotic voice pronounced Nicarri’s name as “the n-word” instead.
“This is Edison Career and Technology High School. Your daughter, N****r, has missed period one…”
According to Huffpost, the call came more than once as Nicarri was reported absent for each school period, so Nicomi was able to record the message and bring it to the school board’s attention.
Under typical circumstances, this could all be called a fluke…BUT Stewart reports that the robocall system had not issue correctly pronouncing Nicarri’s name last year. There should be no reason for it to suddenly call her a n****r now.
