Crownpoint principal recorded making disparaging remarks towards Navajos, gay men in meeting
Last week, audio footage was released of Crownpoint High School principal, Dr. J.D. Reed, who made a series of disparaging remarks about several members of the Gallup-McKinley County school board and the local community. The recording circulated around social media over the weekend and eventually led to Reed’s termination.
In the recording, Reed is heard in an office meeting speaking with at least two unidentified individuals. This included warning an unidentified woman about board member Priscilla Manuelito, telling her Manuelito “doesn’t care about you because you’re white.” Reed also he singled out two other board members for their race and sexuality, calling these “a big issue” for the board.
