The controversial video of a police officer throwing a teen to the ground in McKinney, Texas, has lead to the firing of the principal of North Miami High School, Alberto Iber.
Iber, a Hispanic, wrote this comment on a story that was posted on Facebook page”
“He did nothing wrong. He was afraid for his life… “I commend him for his actions.”
Iber has been hastily fired from the predominantly black high school by the Miami-Dade County School Board, which put out a statement regarding Iber’s reassignment.
“Miami-Dade County Public Schools employees are held to a higher standard, and by School Board policy, are required to conduct themselves, both personally and professionally, in a manner that represents the school district’s core values.”
Would the school board have been so quick to fire Iber if he was African-American?
