A white teacher at a Baltimore school has been fired after she was caught on video berating black students, including calling them the n-word.

The teacher can be seen kicking a student out of class and then yelling at other kids in the 1-minute video. At one point she says if the students don’t get an education they will become a “punk ass n*gger who’s going to get shot.”

You can watch the video below:

The video was posted to Facebook Wednesday night by a parent at the Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School, and on Thursday, the teacher, who has not been named, was fired by the Baltimore City Public Schools system, the Baltimore Sun reports.

“On Tuesday, November 15, a middle school science teacher at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School engaged in verbally abusive behavior and made racially charged comments directed at students,” the school district said in a statement. “The teacher involved in the incident is no longer employed by City Schools.

“At Baltimore City Public Schools, we are committed to creating positive and equitable learning environments in school communities where all members are welcome, supported, and valued. No form of discriminatory behavior of any kind is or will be tolerated,” the statement said.

The video was viewed more than 1.8 million times on the Facebook page of Erica Esha Deminds, who posted it Wednesday night.

Deminds told the New York Daily News her son showed her the video, which was recorded by another student.

“I see it and I’m floored! So I uploaded it and shared it with my family, didn’t think it would go as far as it went,” Deminds told the Daily News. “She’s a very nice teacher. I can’t say what happened that day. I think she was at a breaking point.”

Baltimore City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young responded to the video on Twitter:

Councilman Brandon M. Scott also weighed in:

Sonja Santelises, the CEO of the school system, told reporters, “This is not a case of just a struggling teacher,” WMAR-TV reports.

“I was appalled when I first saw the video,” Santelises said at a press conference. She said she immediately contacted human resources and school supervisors and took action. “In the current climate, we in city schools are very, very clear on where we stand with any kind of hate speech, any kind of obvious discriminatory language. The behavior in that video was not about a teacher trying to regain control of the class. The focus of our reaction was really about the way the teacher went about it and frankly the young people were addressed. It was inappropriate.”

  1. Now this is just great !
    Now the media can claim all white people are racist but !
    Did you notice something did
    You notice that she didn’t physically attack like the Democratic supporters are doing in the streets of America !
    Although it was wrong and she will probably lose her job for it !
    But that’s what happens when people keep getting verbally attack by the abuser eventually they’re going to strike back !
    And when they Strike Back it’s the most terrible thing in the whole world.
    Looking at the disobedience in the classroom you can tell they were not taught any manners to respect their elders

    • She literally grabbed the first student she was reprimanding and yanked him around.

      She doesn’t have the temperament to be in the environment she’s in. She was just as out of control as the students. It’s just not the right job for her. And now it’s gonna be hard to get another one.

      • I seem to notice that you are more on the side of the students than the teacher who lost her mind trying to educate these kids. Ever thought you’re a part of the problem? Because you are. You are an enabler.

        • She should have velcroed the ceiling and thrown them up there. Let them hang by their heads for awhile. Need some time to heat tar ya know LOL LOL

    • Yeah that’s it ! show no more respect ! that’s how you solve the problems !
      Maybe they spit in her face before and she just got tired of being harassed and blurted out Niger !
      Some people think it’s funny to pick on somebody day in and day out !
      And expect them to either fight back or say nothing !
      They look like a bunch of misbehaved hoodlums.

  2. So, anyone going to question the awful behavior of this class and the out-of-context nature of it? Let’s see what happened before she lost her mind. I guarantee, they were being awful to her and probably being racist to her themselves. They baited her and got what they want, and now they will get a nice settlement as a result. I know how the game is played. You all have fallen for it.
