A Mississippi teacher has been placed on leave after a racist Facebook post.
Cammie Rone, who is a teacher at Batesville Intermediate School, allegedly posted on Facebook, “If blacks in this country are so offended, no one is forcing them here. Why don;t they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living.”
The post also claims that the government will “pay for it.”
However, Rone has said that she did not make the post and that it was the result of hacking, writing, “If anyone knows me I post about cows, recipes, and home improvements. Not racism.”
The school district has since released a statement concerning the post, saying, “We are aware of the alleged Facebook comment involving one of our employees. That employee has been placed on administrative leave as we continue our investigation into the matter.”
Now, Parents are calling for Rone to be booted from the school.
Keboni Anderson, whose son is in Rone’s class, said that she liked the teacher at first but now does not want her teaching her son.
“Still wish her well got nothing against her but I don’t think she should be teaching anybody’s kids if she feels that way,” Anderson said.
