4th Grade Teacher Pens Racist, Pro-Segregation Rant

4th Grade Teacher Pens Racist, Pro-Segregation Rant June 12, 2015

Here’s another racist school employee going off on a rant about the black kids who were mistreated by police at a pool party in Texas. A 4th grade teacher in Lubbock decided to pen a racist, pro-segregation rant on her Facebook page, declaring herself brave for doing so as well.

Karen Fitzgibbons, a teacher at Bennett Elementary School, told A-J Media she deleted the post Wednesday evening — a day after writing the publicly viewable post on her Facebook page.

Asked about the post, a Frenship ISD spokesman said such matters are “taken very seriously.”

Fitzgibbons started the post by saying a McKinney police officer’s resignation after a dispute at a swimming pool made her angry and that the 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. I’m sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn’t care. 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. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin….GO! #imnotracist #imsickofthemcausingtrouble #itwasatagedcommunity,” the Facebook post stated.

Fitzgibbons insisted the post “was not directed at any one person or group.”

Love the #imnotracist hashtag. Yeah, it wasn’t aimed at any group and it isn’t racist, just because I said “the blacks are the ones causing the problem” and endorsed a return to the segregation of the 1950s. How could anyone think that was aimed at any one group or was racist?

“It was not an educational post; it was a personal experience post,” Fitzgibbons said, adding she has a personal connection to the McKinney situation, but declined to elaborate.

She added: “I apologized to the appropriate people,” declining to identify those people.

With the post deleted and her apology made, the teacher said she hopes the issue is resolved.

Yeah, it was a personal post, so it’s totally okay you guys! And she apologized to unnamed people, so just get over it already!
