Cynthia Ramsey is a math teacher in the Camden County High School in North Carolina, she is also a racist who didn’t get the Supreme Court memo declaring racism dead and over in the U.S. She is also the head of the school’s math department.
Parent Kimberley Ashcraft told WAVY-TV that her daughter was eating lunch in Ramsey’s classroom when she said that if she had only 10 days to live she would kill all black people.
“I was completely shocked,” Ashcraft said. “I asked her again, ‘are you sure that was what you heard?’ I could not have imagined a teacher saying that.”
Upset, Ashcraft took her daughter’s story to the school asking that the allegation be investigated.
Upon beginning an investigation of their own, school officials notified the Camden County Sheriff’s office and asked for their help in the investigation.
Several students corroborated the story told by Ashcroft’s daughter and Ramsey was suspended with pay –but not for long — she was back in her classroom after only two days.
“I was very disappointed to hear that she was back in the classroom so soon,” Ashcraft said.
Superintendent Melvin Hawkins justified putting Ramsey back in the classroom so soon in a statement:
“At this point, our main concern is to investigate this incident thoroughly, and collect the facts. This is a personnel issue, and it is confidential until resolved. We are following protocol in this investigation and student and school employee investigations are confidential.“
Sheriff Tony Perry said that his office had turned the evidence it had collected in the investigation over to the District Attorney’s office which will decide whether to bring any criminal charges in the case.
“As a parent, I felt compelled to come forward and tell somebody, because this was not only in my opinion a direct threat to the black children in the school, but also black people in the community,” Ashcraft said.
School officials said that the Board of Education will discuss the case at its November 13 meeting.
