A science teacher lost her job after she was caught going off on a racist rant about her black students when she thought her Zoom call with a black student and his mother was over.
The incident unfolded in January in the city of Palmdale, California, about 50 miles north of Los Angeles.
Katura Stokes says that her son, a 6th grade student at Desert Willow Fine Arts, Science and Technology Magnet Academy, was having trouble with accessing the school’s platform for distance learning. So she set up a meeting with Kimberly Newman, her son’s science teacher, to discuss the problem.
Stokes claims that Newman ended the meeting, but left her microphone and her camera on, and then allegedly went on a racist rant.
