“A racist teacher in Texas wants to return to segregation but claims through a hashtag that she is not racist in viral Facebook rant on McKinney,” writes Majority Report.
A fourth grade teacher at Bennett Elementary School in Wolfforth, Texas, has been ‘relieved of her duties’ by the Frenship Independent School District after posting her opinions about the McKinney pool party incident online, according to kcbd.com.
Karen Fitzgibbons shared an article to her profile stating she was “ANGRY” that police corporal Eric Casebolt resigned.
In the post, she made several references to “the blacks” as being the cause for problems and “racial tension,” writes kcbd.com.
“This makes me ANGRY!” wrote Fitzgibbons in her racist rant Wednesday about Cpl. Eric Casebolt of McKinney, Texas, according to the New York Daily News.
“This officer should not have to resign. I’m going to just go ahead and say it…the blacks are the ones causing the problems and this ‘racial tension.’ I guess that’s what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education,” she wrote, as reported by KCBD.
Fitzgibbons went on: “I’m almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something,” writes the New York Daily News.

A teacher at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School in Louisville, KY, who had recently returned from a mission trip to Kenya has resigned amid swirling frustration and fears about Ebola.
The school had asked Susan Sherman to take a paid “precautionary leave” of absence of 21 days upon her return from her trip after “strong parent concerns” about Ebola. It also asked Sherman, who is a registered nurse, to provide a doctor’s note stating she was in good health.
There have been no reported cases of Ebola in Kenya. Indeed, the archdiocese, in a statement released last month regarding Sherman’s trip, noted that the Kenyan village where Sherman was working — the remote village of Migori — is “in Eastern Africa, thousands of miles from West Africa, where the main outbreak of the virus is located.”
A teacher in Maine was put on a 21-day leave because she had recently been to Dallas.
Also, two elementary school children are being kept from attending school in New Jersey because they recently moved to the U.S. from Rwanda.
However, Rwanda is in East Africa, 2,600 miles from the West Africa region afflicted by the Ebola outbreak.
