B.C. teacher fired following racist comments against Black teachers
A B.C. teacher has been fired from an independent school operated by a First Nation after making racist comments to Black teachers and acting aggressively toward students.
Brent Alexander Daniel also has had his teaching certificate suspended for four weeks.
According to a consent resolution agreement signed last month in Prince George, Daniel had just started working at the First Nations-operated K-12 school last fall when he made several racially charged comments toward Black colleagues.
In one instance, Daniel said: “I’d better put away my valuables” after a colleague wearing a medical face mask walked by him in the hallway. When asked why, Daniel said: “A Black man wearing a mask.”
In another incident, Daniel was holding a bottle of vitamins when he gestured toward another teacher and said: “Here, you’ll need these when your HIV gets unbearable.”
