A Different World: 6x4

Somebody Say Ho!

Charmaine annoys the other students with her pushy attitude in Dwayne’s statistics class. Someone tapes a sign to her back that reads “”digit ho.”” She assumes that Terrell is responsible, and he refuses to apologize. She calls him a hood, and they nearly get into a fight. Charmaine feels that Terrell humiliated her by publicly calling her a whore. She files a formal complaint. Although she finds his behavior deplorable, Freddie offers to represent Terrell in student court. She defends his right to free expression, points out that he was joking, and gets Charmaine to admit that she had also insulted students. Freddie finally realizes that Gina was actually the one who taped the sign on Charmaine’s back. Terrell explains why he didn’t deny the charges. He didn’t think anyone would believe him because they had already assumed that he was a thug. Charmaine and Terrell make peace, and Gina is placed on academic probation.
