More disturbing news on the racism front: On Twitter, Shaun King, Senior Justice Writer at the New York Daily News, posted an egregious clip of a white teacher going off on an extremely racist tirade to her Black students.
In the clip, the teacher is heard screaming, "Get out of my class!" as she pulls a Black student by his sweatshirt. While he's walking out the door, the teacher appears to shove his head.
Later, she returns to the classroom, yelling, "You're getting zeros for doing nothing."
"You're idiots," she tells the Black students. "Do you wanna be a broke *ss n*****r who's going to get shot?"
The shock registers on one Black student's face and the classroom erupts. "Learn something!" she shouts above the chaos.
Mic reports that the footage was captured at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore. The teacher, who taught science at the middle school, has been fired. Baltimore City Public Schools released a statement:
"At Baltimore City Public Schools, we are committed to creating positive and equitable learning environments in school communities where all members are welcome, supported, and valued. No form of discriminatory behavior of any kind is or will be tolerated."
Honestly? Termination just doesn't feel like enough.
