A self-proclaimed non-racist teacher for Bennett Elementary School in Lubbock, Texas is now out of a job after she her very racist Facebook post stemming from the McKinney pool party incident went viral.
Late Wednesday evening, Karen Fitzgibbons voiced her displeasure for the brutality tactics of Eric Casebolt against unarmed teenage girls resulting in his resignation.
“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 tells the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that the rant “was not directed at any one person or group,” but her employer, Frenship ISD, knew better than to keep her employed. She was immediately terminated.
“Frenship ISD is deeply disappointed in the thoughtlessness conveyed by this employee’s post,” their statement read. “We find these statements to be extremely offensive, insensitive, and disrespectful to our Frenship community and citizens everywhere. These comments in no way represent the educational environment we have created for our students.”
“The employee whose account is responsible for the post will be relieved of her teaching duties at Frenship ISD.”
Fitzgibbons was employed at Frenship ISD for 16 out of her 20 years of teaching. See the Frenship ISD statement and the terminated teacher’s racist Facebook post for your own two eyes on the next couple of pages.
