An elementary school teacher in Texas, USA, has been fired after making “racist” comments on social media about her sister dating a white guy.
The Mesquite Independent School District announced in a statement Tuesday, August 8, that the black teacher had left the school after authorities learned about her “alarming, racist” tweets.
“As of this morning, the employee is no longer a part of the Mesquite ISD organization and is not eligible for rehire,” the school system said in a statement, adding officials can’t say more because it’s a personnel matter.
“Nevertheless, the highly offensive statements posted to her X account do not reflect the values and standards of Mesquite ISD, and the district condemns them in the strongest terms.”
The teacher wrote she was upset her sister was dating a white man and joked that she asked her boyfriend to kill him, according to posts reviewed by the Dallas Morning News.
“I enjoy being a racist,” she reportedly wrote in one post. “I’m never changing.” she wrote
In other posts, she used derogatory words for white people, the newspaper reported.
The teacher — who used the social media name Claire Kyle has deleted her account from the social media platform. The account name appeared to be an alias.
The teacher called herself a “Black Supremacist” in her social media account bio and hinted that her job knew about the posts before she lost her job, CBS Austin reported.
“Yes. Y’all have found my job. They told me to delete the post but my job is safe since I did not directly wish harm on ALL white people,” the teacher stated Monday
“They laughed and told me to watch what I say and I’ll be good to go!”
The teacher taught third grade for three years at Thompson Elementary School and taught at the district for four years, according to the Dallas Morning News.
