Wisconsin School Guard Who Was Fired For Using The N-Word Gets His Job Back

A black Wisconsin security guard was fired from his job last week for repeating the N-word while telling a black student not to use it. The incident grabbed national attention as students and staff at Madison West High School staged a walk out in support of the guard.

Many argued that Marlon Anderson, 48, shouldn’t have been fired for simply telling a student that it was inappropriate to use the racial slur. Thanks to their voices and the power of social media, the Wisconsin school district decided to give Anderson his job back. Doug Keillor, executive director of Madison Teachers Inc., said that the union was contacted by school officials Monday saying interim Superintendent Jane Belmore decided to rescind the firing of the guard.

Anderson took to Facebook on Monday to share the great new: “I’m back!!” He said he learned of his rehiring while at his new job Monday. “Thank you to the 1,000 plus students for allowing your voices to be heard and to all the people from across the globe for reaching out to my family,” Anderson said in his post.

Fox News reported that Anderson will be on paid leave as he works with the district on a transition plan back to the school.

In a statement to staff, Belmore said she is “prepared to take appropriate steps in the current situation, and I will begin to work with our administrative team to ensure that we mitigate any harm that was caused and begin the healing process and give the board time to review our practice. Our commitment to anti-racism and to use the input from community, especially our students is unwavering,” Belmore said.
