A white Chicago Public Schools teacher, Lincoln Brown, is suing the Board of Education after he was suspended for using the N-word during a class discussion about racism myfoxchicago.com  reports. Brown teaches at Murray Language Academy, where the majority of children are African-American. He said he used the word during his sixth grade history class after he caught two students passing a note that quoted rap lyrics and included the N-word.

"I asked them, what would feel if I used that word?" he said. "I used the full word, but I didn't address it to the students. I was very careful about that." Brown said that the principal — who is black — walked in during the discussion and didn't seem to mind. But then Brown found out he was suspended five days for violating CPS policy which says that the N-word should never be used in books, movies or any classroom discussions.

Brown is suing the principal, CPS CEO Jean Claude-Brizard and CPS. He said if students want to talk about racial issues and slurs, he'd do it again, because that is what educators are supposed to do. Some parents said Brown is a great teacher who did the right thing.

"He didn't use it in an offensive way, so as long as he's not offending any of the children I didn't see anything wrong with it,"

Anyone else feeling a distinct lack of love for 14th February? As we sat down to plan our Valentine's Day content we realised that no-one actually enjoys V-Day. From the pressure it places on couples, to everyone's mad, fleeting obsession with making everything pink and heart shaped, we just don't get it. Here's why we're so over it...

Anneke Hak, showbiz writer

It forces couples in new relationships to have all sorts of conversations they don't want to have:

I'm in a conundrum. Valentine's Day is fast approaching and I've been dating someone for around a month. Everywhere we go together massive red and huge signs declare 'Happy Valentine's Day', and we've both become pros at ignoring it or hastily turning the conversation to things other than love and chocolates – I'm fast-running out of ideas! My sister kindly drew love hearts around the 14 February on the calendar in our kitchen too and now, whenever said boy is in our kitchen, I wonder whether he thinks I'm Valentine's Day obsessed and actually drew the love hearts myself.

Eli Manning Leads NY Giants over Patriots in Super Bowl

It is what it is.... Eli Manning led a fourth-quarter touchdown drive and won his second Super Bowl MVP on Sunday night, leading the New York Giants to a 21-17 victory over the New England Patriots in an exciting finish to an NFL season that started with turmoil and a lockout.

"It's been a wild game," said Manning, who now has one more Super Bowl title than his older brother. "It's been a wild season." The wild finish was certainly fitting to the Giant's season. The Giants (13-7) almost didn't make the playoffs, needing a lot of help at 7-7 with two games left. Their defense finally came together, and Manning gave them a chance in every game with his penchant for comebacks — a league-record 15 touchdowns in the fourth quarter.

Manning went 30 for 40 for 296 yards, with one touchdown pass and zero interceptions. Besides Manning's cool and calm closing drive for the go ahead touchdown - the Giants wide receivers, including Puerto Rican standout Victor Cruz, were the difference in this game. Cruz, who set a single-season team record with 1,536 yards receiving, had four catches for 25 yards, including a short touchdown. Hakeem Nicks, who led the Giants' receivers in the postseason, had a team-high 10 catches for 109 yards.

"I feel good, man," Nicks said. "Blessed to be part of this team, blessed to be in this situation." But it was the most unlikely of receivers - Mario Manningham that had the catch of the season.

It's Black History Month! Getting Educated on the Background

What does Black History Month mean? In the early 20th century, there were almost no mentions of the contributions of African-Americans in U.S. history textbooks. That is what inspired historian and educator Dr. Carter G. Woodson to start "Negro History Week" in 1926. Woodson choose the month of February for this focus because it was the birth month of two leaders who fought to end slavery: Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.

In 1976, President Gerald Ford officially recognized the expanded observance as "Black History Month", calling upon Americans to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history."

Each year, Association for the Study of African American Life and History, the organization started by Woodson in 1915, designates the theme for Black History Month. This year's theme is "Black Women in American Culture and History". The theme was chosen, because, as it states on the ASALH website, "To gain an understanding of the history of African American women is to broaden our understanding of a people and the American nation."

The following is a partial list of Black History Web resources for teachers and parents:

A fugitive on the run for 10 months in Beaver County was arrested on Tuesday as his girlfriend went into labor. Police said Ayende Crawford, 21, was taken into custody after officers said he came out of hiding to be there to see the birth of his child. Investigators said they received a tip that Crawford was at Beaver Hospital with his girlfriend and immediately jumped into action.

"I sent my guys in. We've waited so long and we were not going to take any chances," said Beaver County Sheriff George David. Channel 11's Amy Marcinkiewicz reported that Crawford's girlfriend delivered her baby just minutes after he was arrested. "We weren't giving him the benefit of the doubt. We had to take him right then and there," David said.

Crawford has a lengthy criminal history, including charges of attempted homicide and robbery.
