Teacher Suspended For Racist Facebook Comment

BATESVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — A Batesville teacher has been suspended after a racist comment appeared on her Facebook Page. Cammie Rone, a second-grade teacher at Batesville Intermediate School in Batesville, was placed on administrative leave Monday after officials were made aware of a comment that appeared on her Facebook page, according to Jeff Eubanks, public information officer for the South Panola School District. Fox13 in Memphis on Monday obtained a screenshot of a post made on Rone’s Facebook page. The post read, “If blacks in this country are so offended no one is forcing them to stay here. Why don’t they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living. I am sure our government will pay for it! We pay for everything else.” Rone says that she did not write the post in questions and claims that her account was hacked. In a Monday post, she wrote “If anyone knows me I post about cows, recipes, and home improvements stuff, not racism. Please know I have not posted or made any kind of racist comments.” The school says they are investigating.
