TX: Must not get tired of black people
Even in a private message
The text read, "I'm so sick of playing black people."
A woman in the stands for a girl's basketball game between Kingwood High and Nimitz High (Aldine ISD) sent the message to someone. A Nimitz parent saw it and whipped out her phone to take a picture.
"I think that's not acceptable. Especially in this day and time," said Humble ISD parent Ed Dubois.
We've learned the woman who sent the text was a teacher at Greentree Elementary School. The parent who took the picture of the text sent it to Houston-area activist Gerry Monroe, who took his concerns to Humble ISD.
Here is Humble ISD's full statement:
"Humble ISD expects educators to show respect for all students and to demonstrate good sportsmanship at student events. The text message does not represent the values of the district. Upon being made aware of the photo, the district took immediate action by investigating. That investigation revealed that a person employed as an elementary school teacher sent the text. She has resigned."
