A Texas elementary school teacher was fired after sharing a number of offensive and racist posts on social media, including one in which she claimed to “enjoy being racist” and another in which she was upset at the fact that her sister was dating a White man.
On Tuesday, the Mesquite Independent School district released a statement regarding the termination of Danielle Allen, a teacher at Thompson Elementary, after discovering tweets with “alarmingly racist” undertones.
Among her social media posts and profile, which has now been deleted, one post read: “I enjoy being racist, I’m never changing.”
Online photo screenshots continue to circulate on social media.
Allen purportedly rants about her sister’s romance with a White man, vowing to sabotage the relationship “with everything in [her] power.”
She further stated that it would be, “so fun and so satisfying” to see the mixed-race marriage split up, and she allegedly threatened to murder him.
Ironically, other screenshots seemed to indicate that the teacher boasted about how her angry internet rants would not get her fired.
“They told me to delete the post, but my job is safe since I did not directly wish harm on ALL White people,” she said. “They laughed and told me to watch what I say, and I’ll be good to go.’”
“Just talked to the school board and my job is safe. I told them it was a joke, and they know I’m not racist so have fun.”
According to the school district, when staff became aware of this circumstance, they immediately began an investigation. They later inferred that the 29-year-old teacher is no longer employed by Mesquite ISD and is not qualified for rehire.
