US teacher faces legal action after zoom call racist rant

Mar 31, 2021 14:09 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Kimberly Newman, a teacher of a 12-year-old student at a Southern California school in US has been suspended from the school and is now facing a lawsuit after she went on a racist rant, without muting or ending the zoom call. The student's mother who recorded Newman's remarks is now seeking monetary damages for negligence, defamation and civil rights violations. She said that for over 30 minutes the teacher made racist comments about the family, which is black, and harshly criticised Stokes' parenting skills. In the video, the teacher reportedly said the 12 year old boy learned to lie and make excuses from his mother, adding 'this is what Black people do'
