School employee fired after racist Facebook post about Michelle Obama


Officials of a Georgia school district has fired one of its employees after the employee, Jane Allen, described the US first lady Michelle Obama as a gorilla on Facebook last week. Forsyth County Schools said in a statement that elementary school paraprofessional Jane Wood Allen was fired Monday. The statement reads in part:

“Racism and discrimination are not tolerated” in the school district.

District spokeswoman Jennifer Caracciolo confirmed Monday that the decision to fire Allen was made after officials learned of the Facebook racist posting where Allen referred to the first lady as a gorilla.
Allen wrote on her Facebook page:
“This poor Gorilla. How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore? She needs to focus on getting total make-over (especially the hair), instead of planning vacations! She is a disgrace to America!”
Allen's Facebook page has since being deactivated.

What African Americans don't know is no matter the number of the protest "Black lives Matter" these whites will not stop being racists.
Its in the blood and the discrimination can't stop unless we all have one color of skin

White Americans are yet to get over the fact that a black man who is the son of a Kenyan immigrant for that matter is the President of America. To some of them, it's like a dream that they want to wake up fast from. The anger of seeing a black president is causing a lot of things lately. Black killings doubled, racial profillings and divisions every where. We pray that God intervenes in this situation.

If a gorilla could be president for 8 years in the most powerful country in the world, then that gorilla has got an IQ more than that of human!!! I rather become a gorilla with this IQ than a human with -IQ or no IQ. She is despicable and the lowest of the low.

I can assure her that that is the end of her carrier for the rest of her miserable life. The moment any employer finds out why she was fired on her last jobb,in her record. No one will want to employ such ignorant idiot in any school in a modern world, not only in the US but also here in Sweden.

There's a difference between naming something after somebody. Did the man put up Buhari' s picture in a social media platform like Facebook and say "This man is a dog"? No. If this white woman had named her dog or her gorilla Michelle, nobody would've done anything nor raised an eyebrow because that's her right to name her animal anything she likes.
