It's things like this that make me wish for a global EMP!!

That would only get rid of the tools to amplify stupidity and ignorance.

Maybe it's good all of this is happening.

Kinda like a giant mirror and awareness tool. Act stupid and ignorant, then karma happens by way of social media.

She seems to be a very unstable person, which is not good when you're influencing young minds. Can you imagine how this racist nut job must treat any White students that she may have? If I were a parent, I would seek some legal advice.

She is probably doing her best to raise good little racist cracker haters. Not only should she be fired, she should never be allowed to teach again. Sounds like she could use many years of mandatory counseling as well.

Hate consumed losers such as this Woman are poison, and children should not be subjected to their destructive influence. ~$heopleNation

From what I understand she posted this from her personal computer, on her own time. I disagree with what she says, but, I support her right to say it. If it can be shown that she used school resources to make posts like this or that she expressed her views to her students, then I would support her firing. To me, this opens a can of worms that is better left closed. This clears the way for an employer to fire anyone that posts something that they disagree with. Think about some of the posts made here on ATS. Would they be made if there was a possibility that the poster would lose their job over it?

I have to agree here. There is a point in our society where we are going to turn into the Proles of 1984 (the book). If she did this on her own time, own computer, etc. then she is entitled to her opinion even if I disagree.

The fact that people are calling for her head (job) means we are heading even more deeply down a path of no return. A path down which many of you that are calling for her job may find yourselves a victim. It's a slippery slope jumping to conclusions. When we begin infringing on rights of free speech because we disagree with someone or because he/she has a public job then we are asking for the same treatment for ourselves.

I don't disagree that there are bad teachers out there and she may be one of them. But she apparently has passion, and as I understand it passion is lacking among many teachers in the school systems these days.

If this was a Tweet by a city trash collector (public employee) would it be receiving the same attention? At some point in time teachers have been held to a higher standard. But we forget the greatest teachers of children are their parents. Based on the current iteration of society there is more cause to worry because of parents and not teachers. And because of this I'm not so worried about what she said other than the idiotic mob mentality that continues to form in American these days.

When will the people stop knee-jerk reacting to everything - that's what TPTB love so much about us... they stir the damn pot and watch the Paroles echo everything they've been told on television to all their friends and family.

For the record, a mayor of a city in Oregon I believe was fired for posting a pic of herself in a swimsuit. It wasn't fb it was that other one that college kids used to like before fb metasticized.

I can only imagine the crapstorm that would have ensued had the teacher been white and had used a racial slur offensive to black people, so why are we not getting the same outrage when a black person uses a racial slur against a white person? Is it not racist either way? If one does not believe that then you do not believe in equality, but in superiority. Equality means the same standards for all races, plain and simple. What does surprise me is that she was fired in the first place. I imagine that now the outrage will be over her firing, and the race card will be played, even though SHE is the one who made the racist comment. Mark my words, as it will occur in precisely this way.

Considering the fact that she did it on social media, I'd have the same stance. Everyone is allowed to have an opinion. I still stand by if she was at work when she posted it, she should be fired. If it was on her own time, she shouldn't be. I hold all people to the same standard. It doesn't matter what color the person is. It would be equally as racist, but I still stand by my original stance.

Twitter and Facebook aught to come with a warning, like what’s on cigarette boxes:

Beware of what you say…it can cost you’re job and livelihood”

I know of a lady from NJ—a teacher who tweeted an anti gay statement…she got fired or had to quit.

Many cops to have tweeted themselves out of a job
