A middle school teacher in Texas was fired after students recorded him telling the class that his race is the superior one.
The Bohls Middle School teacher, whose identity has not been released, was fired from the Pflugerville Independent School District for inappropriate racial remarks made during class.
PISD superintendent, Douglas Killian, announced the news on Monday, stating that the teacher was no longer with the district.
In the video, which was posted on social media by a father of one of the students, the teacher can be heard telling students, “Deep down in my heart, I am ethnocentric, which means I think my race is the superior one.”
He continued, “I think everybody thinks that. They’re just not honest about it.”
Following the incident, counselors and administrators were available for students to talk to.
