I know you've been tryingto get your head around
some of the social issueswe discussed yesterday.
I'm sure you're feeling confusedand a little unsure of yourself.
I'm not confused at all,actually, PC Principal.
Okay, well, no,you are confused...
I'm pretty sure you're the onethat's confused, but go ahead.
...'cause you don't graspthe severity of this.
And that's why I've brought in
another young personwith disabilities
to share his feelings.
Thanks for coming into talk to us, Nathan.
I like applesand bananas.
Me, too, bro.Me, too.
Nathan, could you tell Jimmyhow you feel
when people usethe word "retarded?"
It hurts my feelingsbecause I feel bad.
Are you seriousright now?
You feel bad. Right.
You feel likethat's a no-no word, right?
That word makes my heartpiss its pants.
Okay, wow.That's pretty heavy.
Pretty heavy, huh, Jim?
Do you want to ask himwhat he means by that,
or are you just pandering
because you're uncomfortablearound disabled people?
I am not uncomfortable!
I simply care about a horrible,outdated word
that is exclusive,ignores individuality,
and equates intellectualdisability with being --
and it -- and it -- Spot!I need a spotter!
Spot me!Somebody spot me, bro!
And it's -- it's partof a derogatory hate speech
which fosters isolationand loneliness,
and being part of a voiceto stop the "R" word
is not only right,but extremely important!
I'm afraid of bears.
Hey, Nathan.Hold up.
What were you doingin there?
What do you mean, Jimmy?Are you mad?
Come on, Nathan.
You and I both know
you use the word retarded400 times a day.
So righteous, aren't you?
So blind to everythingthat's going on.
What are you talking about?
You really think all the changeshappening to this town
are just coincidence?
This goes so much deeper thanyou can possibly imagine, Jim.
Everyone's about to learnthe truth,
and then...there's a war coming.
A war, Jim.
And I'm just gonna make sureI'm on the right side of it.
Come on, boys.Let's get back to class.
I like to smell trees!
I’m Not Confused At All
PC Principal enlists Nathan to help Jimmy understand why the “R” word is a no-no word.
