Texas Teacher Accused Of Separating Black And White Students, Insulting Them
Fifth graders at a Ft. Worth elementary school say their music teacher separated students by race and then hurled insults at them.
Parents said the incident happened in a music class Friday at Hazel Harvey Peace Elementary school. Sandra Lee said it was the first thing her daughter told her about after school.
“He called the class stupid, and when he separated the black kids from the white kids, he told the black kids I know where y’all from,” Lee said her daughter told her. “He said I can tell neither one of y’all get punished at home.”
…Lee, who went to the school Monday to talk to administrators, said she was told all the students gave administrators written statements about the incident.
“It was racist,” Lee said. “Everything that was going on was racist. At that school, at that classroom, with that teacher, it was very racist.”
