Petition seeks firing of Forestview teacher accused of racist social media comments


Thousands of people are calling for the termination of a Forestview Middle School teacher after she made Facebook comments many deemed racist and inappropriate.

Kara Hall, a visual arts teacher at Forestview in Baxter, appeared to make the comments on a Facebook post by a former lakes area resident who detailed her experience taking part in protests following the death of African American man George Floyd, who died in police custody May 25. Hall’s comments called out black people for destroying businesses and included:

“Are you seeing what the blacks people are doing during this ‘protest?’” “They are destroying properties and businesses.” “Maybe you should be out there telling them to stop burning businesses if they are such good people? I know all I see are scary awful blacks people robbing businesses that don’t deserve this. They are making it worse for themselves.”
