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."

I wonder if she went to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright' Church and practiced black liberation theology. It sure sounds like it.

You do realize she is speaking in ebonics and it wasn't too long ago that a certain faction wanted to make that into an acceptable form of the english language. SMH

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.

I live about 45 minutes from there. What a piece of shit. She totally disrespected the people who died/lost loved ones and she sounds quite hateful.
