The College Fix reported:

Heritage High School (Newport News, Virginia) teacher Lynne Pierce was attempting to make a point about racist terms and names in her AP History class, and as a result was put on administrative leave.

She had used the Washington Redskins as an example, saying the NFL team’s name “mocks Native Americans.”

When a student “asked her to expand more on the topic,” Pierce allegedly compared the name to a hypothetical local team called the “Newport News N******.”
