Elementary School Teacher Fired After Blaming The McKinney Pool Party On Blacks For “Causing Problems” And “Racial Tension”

Karen Fitzgibbons, until recently a 4th grade teacher at Bennett Elementary in Lubbock, Texas, was fired, due to her racist post on Facebook. This is the second time in recent history that a school employee has been fired for posting or commenting (Alberto Iber, principal of North Miami Senior High School in Florida) on Facebook regarding the McKinney Pool Party incident.
She implied a need for racial segregation in her post on Facebook.

The statement she posted was insensitive, disgusting, offensive, and disrespectful.
She said, “I’m going to just go ahead and say it … the blacks are the ones causing the problems and this ‘racial tension.’ I guess that’s what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I’m sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn’t care. I’m almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin…. GO! #imnotracist #imsickofthemcausingtrouble #itwasatagedcommunity”

Can an elementary teacher be hateful, racist, arrogant, and unstable? How does she treat children from other races in the classroom? Does she segregate black children in the classroom like she said in her post?
What she said was extreme, and the ridiculous part is that she didn’t apologize for what she posted, she said “it was not directed at any one person or group,” she instead, “apologized to the appropriate people.”
She continued with, “It was not an educational post; it was a personal experience post,” Fitzgibbons told the Avalanche-Journal.
This is scary, disappointing, and extreme that an elementary teacher can be this hateful and offensive toward any race, no matter what color or culture they come from. It’s just as easy to teach love as it is hate.

  1. My mother always stated whatever is in tour geart will come out no matter what it will cime out. And it did..They sont jnow tihis generation sticks together nkw. THEY ARE NOT WIRH RHIS RACIAL MWSS THEY WILL TELL THE TRUE ION RACIST PEOPLE I SO SURPISE A TEACHER WOULD SAY SOMETHING LIKE VEING AN EDUCATOR IT DOES NOT MATTER WHAT RAXE TOU ARE I AM A TEACHER FIRST. .WOW SHE DEAERVES WHAT SHE GOT…

    1. Alicia, no disrespect intended, but if this isn’t a joke, then you need to check yourself. This is partly why they call us ignorant. #educate

  2. How can she say it wasn’t directed at any particular group? She stated “the blacks are the ones causing the problems and this ‘racial tension.’….. So how is this not direct at no one in particular? And the fact that she taught children to pay attention to details and yet she, herself, did not, is ironic. There was no racial tension at the party from the black teens. That came from the white adults.

  3. Now this is very sad because we depend on teachers to educate our children. I don’t understand why she believe this problem occurred from some children black and white, who I might add are still friends after this, wanted to have a pool party in celebration of graduating from school and even to celebrate the end of a school year. All children need caring teachers willing to teach then no matter what race they are. We should be building our children up instead of tearing them down they see enough of that in the streets. I am not glad this teacher lost her job but I am very disappointed that she went to these extremes by saying the things that she did. If this is what you think of these children “I guess that’s what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education.” then that’s a reflection on you as an educator. What you said shows how educated you are.

  4. I’m glad you’re fired you racist pos what’s your problem mommy and daddy didn’t teach you respect Awwww you should be ashamed of yourself and you should be designated to one area you racist pos

  5. There is racism everywhere we go, but when it comes to our Children, we must stand up. They did not ask for this and are very innocent until…unfortunately faced head on with it. Growing up in a bi-racial family, I was 14 before I realized something was wrong in society. When my son was in the second grade, he had a teacher such as this and within 5 months time, every black child was removed from her classroom, rather getting rid of that teacher. We have to be mindful people.
