A West Virginia newspaper, The Lincoln Journal is coming under fire for publishing a homophobic and racist letter after the Lincoln County Board of Education fired teacher Kelli Burns for being a lesbian.
Said the letter, which was transcribed from a voicemail the paper received:
“We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them queers. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the niggers, the spics, the kikes and the wops….You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters…We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations….We’ll keep Lincoln County white and right. Thank you.”
Burns who was fired after three separate hearings from the school board late last week,
alleged that students had been forced to write letters to the school board saying that she had “tried to turn them gay.”
