A racist elementary school teacher just learned the consequences of being a shitty human being on social media.
Jane Allen Wood was actually in charge of shaping young minds at Chestatee Elementary School in Gainesville, Georgia until Monday when her employment was terminated after she posted a very racist attack against First Lady Michelle Obama for all to see.
“This poor Gorilla,” Wood began. “How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore? She needs to focus on getting a total make-over (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations! She is a disgrace to America!”
Here’s a screenshot of her post via Facebook.
Of course, not only is her post hateful and offensive, the premise is totally unfounded as well.
Presidents and their families are allowed to go on vacations, but these trips are usually always working vacations because the job of the president never stops. The work always travels with them. Plus, the Obama family has taken fewer vacations than both President George W. Bush and President Ronald Reagan, and I don’t recall conservatives whining whenever they took time off on the taxpayer dime.
Also, Michelle Obama got along just fine in the real world prior to becoming First Lady, so eight years in the White House probably won’t faze her. She’ll probably even prefer it rather it than having to continue putting up with hateful racists like Wood. The question really should be how will racists handle it when they no longer have a black First Family to bully?
Well, Wood will have to handle it in the unemployment line because once her employer was made aware of her post-school district officials investigated and then made this announcement on Monday:
“Effective Monday, Oct. 3, Jane Wood Allen has been relieved from duty and is no longer an employee of Forsyth County Schools. Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district. We are committed to ongoing staff training on the acceptance of all individuals. As this is a personnel matter, the district will provide no further comment.”
Forsyth County Schools should be applauded for acting so quickly and decisively on this matter. Wood was clearly a threat to the vulnerable young minds in her classroom and who knows what she could have taught them had she been allowed to continue teaching.
