A substitute pre-Kindergarten teacher (not pictured) in New York was fired from her job after posting a racist rant on Facebook. Cassandra Elizabeth Sutton was working as a substitute prekindergarten paraprofessional. Screenshots of her Facebook account show a recent posting of hers in which she brags about “catching” a black person in the middle of a crime, using the N-word and other slurs, according to the Democrat & Chronicle.
In that post, she said she “caught a n***r” who she claimed was “armed and hiding behind the shed in my neighbor’s backyard” and added that she wonders why she doesn’t “see white males committing crimes” on her street. She wrote that she once caught some “hood rat n*ggers breaking into my neighbors [sic] car” and included hashtags such as #StopRaisingHoodRats and #BlackPeopleAreFineN*ggersArentBIGDifference.
Screenshots were captured of her post in which she added laughing emoticons.
In another post, she writes, “Go ahead & share away keep it going whydontcha!”
Her request was granted and she ended up without a job. “She was immediately terminated as soon as we saw the posting,” Principal Jay Piper said. “We pride ourselves on our diversity. They were very offensive and hurtful remarks.”
Brian Harding, president of TES Staffing — who Sutton was employed through — said that she has been removed from any assignments.
“At this point, I don’t think she can work for us anymore,” Harding said. “Her comments certainly do not reflect our values.”
The school district said Sutton’s comments were “unacceptable and will not be tolerated by anyone who works with district students.”
The Democrat & Chronicle tried to reach out to Sutton for comment. We’re thinking Sutton was too busy changing her laughing emoticons to sad emojis.
The Internet is forever. What you write on social media can be read by others. In Sutton’s case, that’s a good thing.
