White Brooklyn Teacher Calls Black Student 'Monkey,' Says Student's Mother (VIDEO)
A teacher at JHS 234 in Brooklyn is under fire for allegedly asking a black student if she was a "monkey."
PIX11 reports Deborah Perkins was alarmed to receive a phone call from her 12-year-old daughter in which the young girl described her teacher's attempts to stop her and other students from talking while the morning announcements were taking place.
Perkins said, "She told me, ‘My teacher called me and asked me if I was a monkey.’ She was, humiliated."
The Department of Education said the incident is under investigation.
PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEO. The mother acknowledges that the teacher apologized and explained that she did not mean her comment in a racial way, but the mother and community activists are demanding that this teacher be fired.
