A Louisiana high school teacher had been disciplined for saying black people “act like animals” and deserve to be stereotyped in a misspelled Facebook post about Colin Kaepernick.
Valerie Scogin, a math teacher at Slidell High School, posted a slew of racially charged comments to Facebook last week about Nike’s decision to make Colin Kaepernick the face of its “Just Do it” 30th-anniversary campaign.
"They don't have to live in that country. They could go back. But it was their own people selling them into slavery to begin with and tearing [sic] them even worse in those countries of origin...Want a better neighborhood? Move. You don’t have to choose to live in those zip codes.
Want to not be stereotyped, tell people of color to quit acting like animals and perpetuating the stereotype. Many are average people; the few ruin it.”
The post was removed and Scogin said that "the last thing I want to do is hurt anyone. I apologize for what I said and sincerely wish to avoid this in the future."
