I guess schoolteachers in St. Paul Minnesota didn’t get the memo that segregation was over. One teacher took it upon himself to ridicule and spit racial slurs at the children for the past few months.

Sixth grade teacher Tim Olmsted is on paid leave after being accused of racial discrimination towards Black kids in his classroom at Heights Community School. The bigoted teacher allegedly told student Latasha Tolbert that her future included her standing on the corner with a sign begging for money.

Tolbert also stated that he toldstudents,


“He told the whole entire class that it is easier for him to teach rich white folks than poor black people.”

Meg Kane, an education attorney representing three of the families involved, said none of the kids have been in any trouble at school.

The kids also told the attorney that all of them had to sit at the back of the class and were called “fat, black and stupid” and told such things as: “You will never amount to anything” and “You only have one parent.”

Kane is asking that Olmsted be fired. There’s no telling what these comments did to these children’s self-esteem.
