Counselor Fired for Comment on Facebook after West, TX Incident

GRAND PRAIRIE -- Karon Wright, a middle school counselor in Grand Prairie ISD, has been "immediately relieved of all duties," the district said, after an offensive remark written from her Facebook account on WFAA-TV's Facebook page in regards to the explosion in West, Texas.

"It's amazing how the 'whites' get angry when Obama speaks," the comment read. "Oh well....its most of the whites who is getting blown away. So they will soon be wiped from the earth. Lol"

The district said in a statement they found the statement to be "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones."

yuck, what a disgusting thought process.  Definitely wouldn't want anyone with that mindset interacting with my children.

Oh my! What a piece of work. It's hard to imagine that person counseling others, let alone students.

Despite the fact that the comment is extremely insensitive, as well as racist, who would want someone teaching their children when they can't even "speak" using proper grammar?? I commend the district for taking action.

Once again, I wonder if people realize that Facebook is on the Internet.

She should be fired for that.
