A Pennsylvania middle school teacher has been put on administrative leave following the release of a video showing her going on a racist rant in a school parking lot.
Rasheed Noel, the father who was the target of the derogatory tirade, filmed the interaction with the still-unnamed teacher. The incident was reportedly the aftermath of a minor car accident between the two on school property.
“He and a teacher were involved in a car accident in the parking lot of Drexel Hill Middle School and that the teacher proceeded to make several racial and other derogatory remarks to him,” the Upper Darby School District said in a public statement.
The unnamed teacher tells Noel in the video that he is probably living on “welfare.”
“Not even a little bit. Six figures a year, ma’am,” Noel responded.
“That’s right,” she says, “because you’re black … Always looking to milk the system. And you see me, a white woman, so you think I have money.”
“Not even a little bit. Don’t even look like you’ve got it,” he said.
The teacher eventually gets so unhinged that she calls Noel the n-word.
The teacher also brags about having a “big truck” and being able to pay “cash” for Noel’s vehicle.
“This situation can change real quick,” Noel said towards the end of the video. “You better stay over there.”
“I commend the Upper Darby school district for taking quick action on this teacher at Drexel Hill Middle School. They are doing everything in their power to make sure people like this teacher become non existent in any school. Listen close at 1:17 what she calls me (N****). She hits my car and acts like this on school property in front of students and staff. After meeting with the superintendent of Upper Darby school district and his staff, I’m hear [sic] to say they absolutely care about their community,” Noel wrote on Facebook when posting the video of the incident.
He also told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he does not regret posting the video and exposing the teacher.
“She wanted the opportunity to express herself. She had the floor, which is why I kept quiet, and why I decided to stay on video,” he said. “She wanted the attention, and now she has it.”
“We took this report very seriously. As a result of the investigation, the teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending further investigation. We intend to vigorously address this issue,” the Upper Darby School District said through a statement.
The statement continued: “Upper Darby School District does not condone or tolerate inappropriate conduct or speech associated with hate, racism, discrimination or intolerance of any kind. The deeply troubling comments and actions of this teacher are not indicative of the hundreds of outstanding teachers working in our schools each and every day.”
One would think we live in an age where people using the n-word is behind us, but it sadly is not. Actor Isaiah Washington just recently wrote on Twitter about being called the n-word and “stupid” by a friend he’d had for decades. The incident was all over Washington’s support for President Donald Trump.
