A teacher assistant in Texas lost her job after screenshots revealed she racially profiled and vulgarly attacked a Facebook user for expressing her support for professional athletes taking a knee to protest police brutality.
Amy Davidson of Lubbock’s Preston Smith Elementary resigned on Tuesday after the screenshots of her altercation with Donica Torres started circulating online.
“Are you f*cking ret*rded? Mistreatment of black people by cops? We have black cops stupid b*tch,” Davidson wrote. “The only racism we have in our country is ignorant people like you! Shut the f*ck up and go get a job.”
Davidson continued the attack by racially profiling Torres.
“B*tch go back to Mexico!” Davidson demanded. “You’re f*cking ignorant!”
Torres then noted she is not from Mexico.
Following the altercation, Torres told the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal that Davidson “took the conversation to a whole different level with her racist remarks towards me and the Hispanic community.”
Below are the screenshots:
“Yesterday, Lubbock ISD was made aware of posts on the personal Facebook page of Amy Davidson which were in violation of the district’s employee handbook,” Lubbock independent school district spokesperson Nancy Sharp said in a statement to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal.
“Davidson resigned her position this morning, effective immediately,” Lubbock ISD continued. “She has been employed by the district less than two years as an educational aide.”
