Florida Teacher Put On Leave After Allegedly Making White Students Bow Down To Black Students


A Florida teacher has officially been placed on leave after he allegedly made white students bow down to black students in class.

Middle school teacher Ethan Hooper was placed on leave after videos he posted “showed White students acting like servants to Black students in the class in honor of Black History Month.”

In response to the video Hooper claims there was no ill will behind the video and it was just “fun”.

Fox News covered the sickening story:

A Florida teacher who was accused of having White students in his classroom bow to Black students is on leave.

Ethan Hooper, a middle school teacher in Orlando, posted the videos to his personal social media which went viral after being shared by the popular right-wing account Libs of TikTok.

One of the videos Hooper posted showed White students acting like servants to Black students in the class in honor of Black History Month. White students were shown in the video fanning and feeding Black students.

“It was in good fun. There was no political agenda behind it,” the teacher said. He said the video was being “maliciously used.”

“I am deeply apologetic toward the students and parents of those involved. I am also sorry to the students who weren’t involved,” Hooper said. “I want to be an example for them. If this does not match up with what they viewed [of me], I am truly sorry. My heart is for my students and the parents, first and foremost.”

Blaze Media had more details to add:

A Florida teacher was recently suspended for using kids as “political props” after parents discovered a social media video showing white students bowing down to their black classmates, the New York Post reported.

Ethan Hooper, a sixth-grade language arts teacher at Howard Middle School in Orlando, Florida, was placed on administrative leave after he posted a video to his personal TikTok account that showed white students fanning, feeding, and bowing down to their black classmates to commemorate black history month.

Hooper’s controversial video was one of several that mocked Florida Department of Education policies backed by Republican Governor Ron DeSantis.
