With all the talk about how Black students usually get less experienced and professional teachers, it would seem that educators would have more awareness and sensitivity in the classroom, but that was not the case for one Georgia high school teacher.

The unnamed male teacher at Greene County High School in Greensboro, Georgia, is accused of calling a student, Shaniaya Hunter, “the dumbest girl I have ever met.” The comment came after Shaniaya had experienced a number of absences due to an eye condition and asked the teacher in December for help catching up on her work, reports The New York Daily News.

Shaniaya, who was recording the lesson on her iPad, was also able to capture the conversation, which has gone viral. Meanwhile her mother, Cathy Wright, has hired a lawyer, Ben Windham, a Greensboro, Georgia-based attorney. The school system declined to comment.

Per the News:

“I have been around for 37 years and clearly, you are the dumbest girl that I have ever met,” he said in the recording, obtained by WSB-TV.

“You know what your purpose going to be? To have sex and have children, because you ain’t gonna never be smart,” he continued.

“It really hurt me inside,” the teary-eyed teenager told the Atlanta TV station.

Windham had this to say about the teacher: “This man does not need to be teaching young children. It’s not a gray area. End of story.”

Agreed, this man should not be teaching anyone.
