Outrage As White Teacher Calls Black Student A "Monkey"
Description:Minutes into the school day last Thursday, Deborah Perkins got a disturbing phone call from her 12-year-old daughter.
“She was almost to tears on the phone,” recalled Perkins.
Perkins’ daughter admitted she was talking during the morning announcements at JHS 234, which is not allowed, but it was the teacher’s attempt to quiet her down that struck a nerve.
“She told me, ‘My teacher called me and asked me if I was a monkey.’ She was, humiliated,” said Perkins holding back tears.(1:34)
