Pasco suspends, transfers teacher accused of making Trump-related racial remark


LAND O'LAKES — A white Pasco County teacher accused of making racially charged statements to black students has been suspended without pay for three days and transferred to a different school across the county.

Many in the community called for Wesley Chapel High School special education teacher John Sousa to be fired for telling students he would call newly elected president Donald Trump to have them deported for their behavior.

Some students said he directed his comments at African-American teens, and said they would be sent "back to Africa." The incident, a day after the Nov. 8 election, tied in to similar acts of intolerance in schools around the country in the aftermath of a nasty presidential campaign.
