The text of Black’s rant is below. Warning: explicit language.

There’s a retired educator, 42 years, say something nice about teachers or high school guidance counselors. I can’t say anything nice about high school guidance counselors. My high school guidance counselor, I might as well had a tortoise. Just sitting there . . . The information that I was given was so fucking wrong, it was beyond fucking belief. When I applied to colleges, it was like he just made shit up. But teachers, I can say a lot about, because my mother was a teacher and you didn’t really want her in your class. It’s really-, it’s really astonishing. One of the reason, I believe, that the teaching profession has had so many problems is because, when I was a kid, a teachers salary was a middle class salary. The people who taught, one of the reasons the people, and really good people, went into teaching is, is it was something they aspired to and they knew the community was going to cover them. And they were going to pay them well enough, and that they would have that time off in the summer. Which as I grown older, it upsets people that teachers get time off in the summer. Really? Really, fucknut? Really? People just don’t fucking get it. And especially now a days, where a teacher’s teaching ten-, it’s not just an eight-hour job. It’s not a six-hour job. Any really good teacher’s in there ten, twelve, fourteen hours a day. They’re grading papers that most of you who fucking bitch about teaching, couldn’t sit down and get through three of them. Okay, some eight year old, some eight year old talking about, I fall, nice, good, happy time. With some sort of fucking gradu on there that you’re worried about Ebola. There’s no telling what that asshole put out of his nose. You’d be weeping after three of these. Some teachers buy-, have to buy the supplies, because nobody wants to be taxed for education anymore, that’s crazy. It’s fucking unbelievable. It’s fucking astonishing. It all starts there, that’s where it starts. It starts with education. You fucking look for great teachers, you don’t fuck around, and you pay them, if you want your kids to be taught well. It’s just that simple. “Oh, but they get the summer off.” Fuck you, if you didn’t give the teacher their summer off, you fucking moron… Are you shitting me? I tell you, we’d have to be building insane asylums to the sky.
