Presenting a black teacher with a KKK robe is either stupid or cleverly subversive. I vote for stupid. How about you? What do you think?
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) — A state-funded agency is investigating why a retiring agriculture education teacher presented a black teacher with a white robe.
Oklahoma Career Tech says the incident occurred Aug. 2 during the 2016 Oklahoma Career and Technology Summer Conference in Oklahoma City. Sources tell FOX 25 that during a moment to recognize retiring agriculture teachers, now retired Elk City High School ag teacher Larry Long presented a black teacher with a white robe, referencing the Ku Klux Klan. Career Tech Director Marcie Mack says the incident is unacceptable and that her department is working to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
The school where the victim is employed tells FOX 25 that the teacher involved was a “mentor” to the victim. The school also says Long has since apologized to the man and that it was presented as a “joke”. Mack said in a conference that as soon as Career Tech was made aware of the incident, an internal investigation was opened.
