Technically, Woody Hart retired, but for all practical purposes he was fired.
Because he “retired,” he has no legitimate grounds for a lawsuit. Always make them fire you.
After you read this story, contrast the outcome to the story of the nonwhite Texas teacher who shot a picture of Donald Trump with a squirt gun, while saying something really bad.
FOLSOM, Calif. (KCRA) —
A Folsom teacher accused of “racially insensitive behavior” has retired, the Folsom Cordova Unified School District said at a board meeting Thursday night.
“(Thursday) in closed session, the Board of Education accepted this Sutter Middle School teacher’s retirement … and he will not be returning to school this year,” Superintendent Deborah Bettencourt said in a statement Thursday.
Sutter Middle School teacher Woody Hart, who has been with the district since 1999, has come under fire twice since November.
After a Confederate flag was found hanging in his classroom Tuesday night, Hart was placed on paid administrative leave Wednesday.
“We recognize that regardless of context, to many of our students, families, and staff, the Confederate flag is a racist symbol of hate,” the school district said in a statement Wednesday.
The flag was hanging in a classroom across from a Civil War Union flag, “potentially in preparation of a history activity,” the district said. It was taken down before class began Wednesday.
“We just came in and we saw the Union flag on one side of the room and the Confederate flag on the other side of the room,” Hart’s student Ana Kneisley said.
Kneisley pointed out the Confederate flag is in her text book and said the hanging flags were part of a lesson, where students were members of the two armies.
“I actually very much appreciated the way he taught history,” Kneisley said. “I felt that we were getting more involved than what our other classes did.”
In November, a family filed a complaint against the same teacher for “making an inappropriate lynching analogy” during a lesson, the school district said.
According to the family, when the teacher was asked to give an example of equality, he said, “When you hang one black person, you’d have to hang them all. That is equality.”
During the investigation, the teacher told administrators that statement was made in the context of how Southerners would respond to people who went to the South to promote equal rights for African-Americans. He said the Southerners would respond, “We treat them all equally. We hang them.”
Bettencourt said in her statement that anytime a teacher or staff member is accused of racially insensitive conduct, the school has to investigate the claims.
“We do not want to limit the free speech of our teachers,” she said.
“Our expectations, however, are that teachers and staff will do this work using culturally appropriate strategies,” she added.
Yes, it is pathetic and deplorable that an elderly white male teacher has been sacrificed to the altar of political correctness. You really have to stretch to placate the Negro gods in this case.
A true ethnic cleansing of whites has been underway in this country for decades, but really ramped up with the election of Barack Insane Obama. It’s unclear whether Donald Trump can change the culture enough to stop this madness.
Roles have been reversed from history. Today, every white person is a slave to the Negro-worshiping enemy occupational government in Washington. As slaves, we pay tribute to our black slave masters in many ways, including by paying about half our incomes in taxes to various governments.
It won’t be long before we’ll be forced to address the sacred Nagger as “Massa.” “Yes, massa, what ever youz sayz.”
