Jersey Gym Teacher Fired For Calling Students ‘Negroes’
Two gym teachers were overheard by students at Mount Olive High School using racially offensive language.
Brigitte Geiger and Sharon Jones, who taught for around three decades, were canned and had their tenure revoked after an investigation found they made racially charged comments about black students at Mount Olive High on March 2, 2012, NJ.com reported.
Two students who overheard the pair told school officials Jones was grousing to Geiger in a locker room when she said, “Yea, those Negroes think they are tough (expletive),” NJ.com reported.
“Yeah, that’s all they are, just a bunch of Negroes, Negroes, Negroes,” Geiger replied.
