Pennsylvania School Officials Under Fire for Incredibly Racist Texts

Two Pennsylvania school officials who unexpectedly resigned last month have now come under fire for allegedly sending out racist texts on their work phones, making rather liberal use of the n-word.

Former superintendent Richard Como announced his retirement late last month, while news of athletics director Jim Donato‘s resignation came within the next few days. But the Daily Local News reveals that the two departures came after their racist calls were discovered. There is a criminal investigation into the incident, while school officials have refused to comment so far.

The Daily Local News obtained transcripts of the text messages. Here’s a selection from the transcripts (WARNING: contains offensive language).

“All should just have whatever first names they want…then last name is N*GGER! Leroy N*gger, Preacher N*gger, Night train n*gger, clarence n*gger, Latoya n*gger, Thelma n*gger and so on”

“Great idea ! Joe n*gger bill n*gger snake n*gger got a nice ring to it.”


There are also references to “camel jockeys,” Donald Trump, a “jew red haired esl teach.”
