Grand Prairie counselor fired after comment on WFAA's Facebook page
WFAA ^ | 4/18/2013 | JOSH DAVIS

Posted on 04/18/2013 5:24:58 PM PDT by LA Woman3

GRAND PRAIRIE -- Karon Wright, a middle school counselor in Grand Prairie ISD, has been "immediately relieved of all duties," the district said, after an offensive remark written from her Facebook account on WFAA-TV's Facebook page in regards to the explosion in West, Texas.

"It's amazing how the 'whites' get angry when Obama speaks," the comment read. "Oh well....its most of the whites who is getting blown away. So they will soon be wiped from the earth. Lol"

Wright denies she wrote the comment, and said her account was hacked.

The district said in a statement they found the statement to be "highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones."

The comment has since been deleted, but a viewer sent us a screengrab from their phone.

I wonder what the average percentage of people’s lives that are lived online today.

Wonder what it will be in 10 years... 50.

They’ll wait a few weeks for the storm to blow over and hire her back.

But,but ,but she’s Black so it can’t be offensive or racist. It’s just affirmative action.

She did get fired. Here is the statement from the school district.....

GPISD Announcements (Grand Prairie ISD) A statement posted on WFAA’s Facebook page purportedly by an employee of this District has been brought to our attention. We find this statement to be highly offensive, insensitive to the tragedy happening to our friends and neighbors in West, and disrespectful to the very human bond that we share with the people of West, especially those who have lost their loved ones. The employee whose account appears to be responsible for the post was immediately relieved of all duties. Our thoughts and prayers are with the West community.

She said her account was hacked. It should be very easy to determine that if Facebook would reveal all posts of hers, plus timestamps of password changes. what was posted just before and just after? Or, can she tell us who she handed her phone to, to make the post?

When someone claims their account was "hacked" there will be plenty of evidence that is was/was not and can be cleared up either way.

Facebook keeps a log of the computers and IP addresses used to log in. It should be easy for her to prove, IF true.

I bet we’ll be waiting a long time.

Oh, that's too difficult for "the folks," as O'Reilly calls us. We're all too dumb to figure out things like that.

But everyone understands "hacked," which is one of those racist code words for White Voodoo.

Racism is evil no matter what the skin color is of the monster who practices it. She has no business counseling kids. Dr. King must be rolling in his grave.

The disturbing part was the article she was commenting on was about the explosion in West, Texas!

"My Facebook account was hacked and the statement that was made is not of my character. I am a school counselor who will never 1) jeopardize my family, 2) jeopardize my job, and 3) jeopardize the trust of the students, parents, staff, faculty, and administration of GPISD," Wright wrote

Right. Millions of hackers sit there waiting for a chance to hack the Facebook account of some obscure Black woman from Grand Prarie.

Posting on FB with your picture and name shows sheer stupidity.

Not surprising. Liberals are the the most mean spirited, hateful people on Earth. Just look at all the hate filled libs in the UK after Margarette Thatchers death(the witch is dead). Hate is their total being

Several years ago I tried to log into my FB account. I tried every password I had ever used. Finally, they notified me that someone in Nigeria had hacked that account plus my email account. They would not allow me to use that email account anymore. The hackers sure did not learn very much. I do not post any personal info and that includes where I live. The only thing that bothered me was starting over with relatives/friends. I do not discuss trips until I get back. I have seen whole birthdays,where people are going, etc. I don’t do that.

"She did get fired.

The rest of your post doesn't support that conclusion. It says she was relieved of her duties. Sounds more like a paid vacation.

I think she was commenting on Newtown; Boston; West, Texas.

Apparently the educational requirements to be a middle school counselor in Grand Prairie are light. She studied Adult Education? No college degree?

And she left out the apostrophe when she contracted “it is”.

But hey, lest we call her a stupid liberal ...

Yes. How does someone get a professional position at a school when they cannot even write proper grammar?
