A Texas elementary school teacher was fired from her job after she posted “racist” statements on social media complaining her sister dated a white man, according to reports.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Mesquite Independent School District said the teacher, who is black, was fired after officials discovered “alarming, racist” posts she wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter.
“As of this morning, the employee is no longer a part of the Mesquite ISD organization and is not eligible for rehire,” the school system said in a statement.
“Nevertheless, the highly offensive statements posted to her X account do not reflect the values and standards of Mesquite ISD, and the district condemns them in the strongest terms, they added.
The teacher, who has since ben fired, posted that she was upset her sister was dating a white man and even joked he asked her boyfriend to kill him, the Dallas Morning News reported.
“I enjoy being a racist,” she wrote in one post. “I’m never changing.”
According to reports, the teacher also used derogatory words for white people in other posts.
The teacher, who went by the name of Claire Kyle on social media, deleted her account from the social media platform.
She also called herself a “Black Supremacist” in her bio and hinted that her job knew about the posts before she was fired.
“Yes. Y’all have found my job. They told me to delete the post, but my job is safe since I did not directly wish harm on ALL white people,” the teacher stated Monday. “They laughed and told me to watch what I say, and I’ll be good to go!”
The teacher taught third-grade students for three years at Thompson Elementary School and in the district for four years.
