An elementary school teacher at Batesville Intermediate School in Mississippi has been placed on leave after a racist Facebook post.
According to the Associated Press, Cammie Rone wrote: "If blacks in this country are so offended no one is forcing them to stay here. 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."
Recently, there have been several instances in which non-POCs will claim to have either used racial slurs or racist remarks "by mistake" or that they, conveniently, didn't have any ill-intent behind what was said.
In this similar case, Rone claimed that her page was hacked and that she is in fact not a racist.
In another post, she wrote, "If anyone knows me I post about cows, recipes and home improvements. Not racism."
Though some of the parents, such as Keboni Anderson, thinks that Rone has been a good teacher, she should not be teaching anybody's kids if she feels the way she does.
Per the school district spokesman, Tom Dees, Rone has been placed on leave as of Monday.
A further investigation of the incident is underway.
