A music teacher at the Hazel Harvey Peace Elementary school in Fort Worth, Texas, reportedly segregated his 5th grade class by race and proceeded to insult the black children.
The alleged incident happened last Friday (video below).
“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',” parent Sandra Lee told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth. “He said, 'I can tell neither one of y’all get punished at home.'"
“It was racist,” added Lee. “Everything that was going on was racist. At that school, at that classroom, with that teacher, it was very racist.”
Lee says that all the students gave the school written statements about the incident.
Fort Worth Independent School district spokesman Clint Bond told CBS Dallas-Fort Worth in a statement: “Campus and district leadership have been aware of the allegations since last Friday. Once the facts are known, appropriate action will be taken.”
Apparently, the music teacher is unaware that segregation in schools was banned by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1954 in the case of Brown v. Board of Education (picture above).
In an unanimous decision, the high court ruled that "separate educational facilities are inherently unequal."
