School Counselor Fired for Alleged Racist Rant on Texas Explosion Victims
A Grand Prairie, TX public school counselor has been fired for allegedly posting a racist rant in celebration of the deaths and injuries suffered by residents of West, TX from a fertilizer plant explosion. The comment suggested the "whites" deserved getting "blown away" and "wiped off the earth."
The comment was posted under the Facebook account of public school counselor Karon Wright on the Facebook page for a local news station. The comment stated:
It's amazing how the 'whites' get angry when Obama speaks. Oh well....its most of the whites who is getting blown away. So they will soon be wiped from the earth. Lol
The comment was not the only angry words from liberals directed at relatives of the killed or injured victims of West. Several local officials in the city and county have had voicemails left for them blaming the prominence of “conservative” political ideologies in the area for the explosion, according to Toby Marie Walker, a county resident who also heads up the Waco Tea Party. “They blame a belief in free-markets for the explosion,” she said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart News.
A St. Louis news station reported that the school district the counselor worked for, Grand Prairie ISD, has released a statement. It described Karon Wright’s alleged comments as "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones."
Wright has reportedly hired an attorney and claims her account was hacked.
