Teacher Makes Racist Remarks About African Americans

A North Carolina teacher is being investigated over her racist remarks regarding African Americans. A student at  Camden County High School whom the teacher was conversing with during a lunch break in class told her how teacher Cynthia Ramsey had a “bucket list” where, if given only 10 days to live, she would kill all black people. The parent of the student,  Kimberly Ashcraft, was very shocked. She said, “ I asked her [Ashcraft’s daughter] again, ‘Are you sure that was what you heard?’ I could not have imagined a teacher saying that.” School officials began investigating Mrs.Ramsey with the help of the County Sheriff's Office and other students confirming the news. Mrs Ramsey was suspended without pay, however she was back on duty only a few days later. Ashcraft was very disappointed in the news that Mrs. Ramsey was put back on the job so quickly.  “As a parent, I felt compelled to come forward and tell somebody, because this was not only in my opinion a direct threat to the black children in the school, but also black people in the community,” The Camden Country Sheriff has stated that evidence has been turned to the district attorney and they will decide as to whether the teacher will face any further charges.
