A Mississippi school district fired a second grade teacher earlier this week after she allegedly posted a Facebook status claiming black people should “pack up and move back to Africa.”
Cammie Rone, a former teacher at Batesville Intermediate School, lost her job after the school investigated the Facebook post. The post was written as a solution to black people who get offended, reports the New York Post.
“If blacks in this country are so offended, no one is forcing them to stay here,” Rone posted on her profile, according to screenshots from parents at the school. “Why don’t they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living. I am sure our government will pay for it! We pay for everything else.”
Parents, including Keboni Anderson, saw the since deleted Facebook post. The parents took a screenshot of the post and notified the school.
