Roseville School Board Vice President Alfredo Francesconi has generated outrage in the Detroit, Michigan, area because of offensive Facebook posts.
The posts were not written by Francesconi himself but were shared by him and described all Muslims as terrorists and claiming that black people didn’t vote in the election. He claimed that he only shared the posts because he agreed with the content.
But these posts are not the first time that Francesconi has found himself in trouble for his social media use, as he has been accused of making racist Facebook posts before, with one post reportedly reading, “No I’m not going to kill the gays, make slavery legal, and take away women’s rights. I’m not a Muslim.”
However, he claimed in a phone interview with news reporter Gino Vicci that the posts were not offensive and that he would post them again.
On Monday night, residents of Roseville held a protest outside of the school board meeting calling for Francesconi’s ouster or resignation.
