“This officer should not have to resign. I’m going to just go ahead and say it…the blacks are the ones causing the problems and this “racial tension.” I guess that’s what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education” said Karen Fitzgibbons.

The fourth grade teacher at Bennett Elementary school added, “I’m almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin…GO!”

She concluded her rant with saying “#ImNotRacist”….okay girl!

Fitzgibbons employer, the Frenship Independent School District swiftly replied by firing her and releasing a statement obtained by Hollywood Life.

“Frenship ISD is deeply disappointed in the thoughtlessness conveyed by this employee’s post. We find these statements to be extremely offensive, insensitive, and disrespectful to our Frenship community and citizens everywhere” the remarks began.

“Employees are held to the same professional standards in their public use of electronic media as they are for any other public conduct. This recent conduct was unacceptable. Frenship ISD hopes communities, parents and students understand that these remarks do not reflect the views of our district, teachers and staff” the statement added.

Being fired inspired Fitzgibbons to write a well thought out and insincere apology. “First, to anyone, of any race, that I have offended, I sincerely apologize. That was not my intent. I let my emotions get the best of me, and instead of taking a deep breath, vented in an inappropriate way” she began.

“I am ashamed of my post. As I look back and reflect, I see how hurtful those words sounded. It is my hope that my sincere apology will be accepted” she added.
