An unnamed music teacher at the Hazel Harvey Peace Elementary school in Fort Worth, Texas is being accused of being racially biased after allegedly segregating his fifth grade music class last Friday, before telling the black students they were poorly raised, reports CBS 11.
According to parents of the children involved in the incident, the teacher not only reportedly divided his class by race, but then added insult to injury by calling the children, “stupid” during the separation process.
Sandra Lee, whose child is a student in the music class, told CBS 11 that her child recounted exactly what went on in the classroom. According to Lee, as the teacher separated the black students from the white students, he allegedly told the black children, “I know where y’all are from…I can tell neither one of ya’ll get punished at home.”
Lee, who visited the school on Monday to meet with administrators about the alleged incident, was informed that the children in the music class were required to provide a written statement about what took place. The miffed mom finds the incident outrageous and she, along with other parents of the fifth-graders who were subjected to the racial bias, are not sloughing off the matter. “It was racist,” Lee told CBS 11. “Everything that was going on was racist. At that school, at that classroom, with that teacher, it was very racist.”
