First, he had the audacity to buck politically correct cultural Marxism and, second, he told the truth.
Specifically, Carnine uttered these words:
"That guy was a thug and got what he deserved."
He was making reference to Michael Brown. Brown was the gentle giant who was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri as he attacked a police officer in August.
A third more grievous offense was speaking the truth while black students were in the classroom.
Parents and students rallied behind the teacher, demanding he be restored to his class.

Parents and students rallied Monday in defense of a Los Angeles middle school teacher accused of making racist remarks in the classroom.
Eighth grade teacher Steven Carnine has been removed from the classroom at Paul Revere Charter Middle School and Magnet Center after a lawsuit filed on behalf of a mixed-race student March 18 against the district alleged Carnine used the N-word in class, NBC Los Angeles reported.
"That guy was a thug and got what he deserved," the suit claims Carnine said to students when a classroom discussion about the Civil War turned to Ferguson, Mo. and the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown Jr.
Supporters chanted "Bring him back!" and held signs that read #SaveMrCarnine and "Save Carnine" outside the school in Brentwood, Calif. Then hundreds of students left class in protest later in the day, according to NBC.
