Officials confirmed to Fox13Memphis that Cammie Rone was dismissed from her position as a teacher at Mississippi’s Batesville Intermediate School. The school serves about 600 students in the second and third grades, according to the school’s website.
A post on Cammie Rone's Facebook page said: "If blacks in this country are so offended no (one) is forcing them here. Why (don’t) they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living."
It went on to say the government will “pay for it.”
In a second post, Rone claimed that she was hacked.
"If anyone knows me I post about cows, recipes, and home improvements. Not racism,” she wrote.
In a statement to Fox13Memphis, school district officials said Monday that they were aware of the incident and that Rone had been placed on administrative leave. A school district spokesperson told the news station on Wednesday that she was no longer an employee of the South Panola School District.
She has the option to appeal, officials said.
