A WHITE TEACHER was caught on camera shouting racial abuse at a group of young black students in the US on Tuesday.

A minute-long video was uploaded to Facebook and features the teacher yelling at a class from Baltimore’s Harlem Park Middle School.

At one point in the video, she tells the children, who appear to be in their early teens, that they are “going to be a bunch of broke ass n***ers who get shot”.

No longer employed

She then says the same words again to the shock of her students.

A statement released by the Baltimore City Public Schools body said: “On Tuesday 15 November, a middle-school science teacher at Harlem Park Elementary/Middle School engaged in verbally abusive behavior and made racially charged comments directed at students.

The teacher involved in the incident is no longer employed by City Schools.

“At Baltimore City Public Schools, we are committed to creating positive and equitable learning environments in school communities where all members are welcome, supported, and valued. No form of discriminatory behavior of any kind is or will be tolerated.”
