Frenship Teacher Fired Over #imnotracist Post on Facebook

By Staff

Frenship ISD said Thursday that the teacher who wrote a controversial Facebook post was fired.  She was not mentioned by name in the statement but she had been previously identified as Karen Fitzgibbons, a teacher at Bennett Elementary School.

In response to the resignation of a McKinney Police officer accused of excessive force, Fitzgibbons posted on Facebook, “This officer should not have to resign.”

She then wrote, “The blacks are the ones causing the problems and this ‘racial tension.'”

“I’m almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone,” Fitzgibbons also said.  The post ended with hashtags including #imnotracist.

“This recent conduct was unacceptable,” Frenship said in a written statement. “Frenship ISD hopes communities, parents and students understand that these remarks do not reflect the views of our district, teachers and staff.”
