MESQUITE — A North Texas public school teacher has been fired for posting hateful and racist social media posts demonizing white people and joking about killing a white man.

Danielle Allen, who taught first grade at Thompson Elementary School in Mesquite Independent School District, made a series of racist posts on X (formerly Twitter) where she claimed the white race “is the most evil race to ever exist.”

Libs of TikTok, an X account that routinely exposes leftist teachers, shed light on her account, where she goes by the pseudonym “Claire King.”

Allen’s X account showed her saying, “I enjoy being racist! I’m never changing!” Her bio on the platform stated she was a “black supremacist.” 

Allen also posted a video where she vowed to destroy her sister’s relationship with a white man and texted her boyfriend to “come kill him for me,” adding, “I’ll help you hide the body.” 

After being exposed for her racist remarks, Allen posted that her “job was safe” and her “employers laughed” at the matter. 

However, after multiple community members called on the school to investigate, Allen was fired on Tuesday and will be ineligible for rehire at the district. 

“Due to privacy restrictions, Mesquite ISD cannot comment on the details of Personnel matters,” the district wrote in a statement. “Nevertheless, the highly offensive statements posted to her X account do not reflect the values and standards of Mesquite ISD, and the district condemns them in the strongest terms.”

Corey DeAngelis, a school choice advocate, told Texas Scorecard that the event shows Texas is long overdue for education freedom legislation:

The radical left has infiltrated the government school system and they are using it for ideological indoctrination as opposed to education. These extremists see the school system as a means of raising other people’s children with their own values, and they won’t stop without accountability. Parents need to be able to vote with their feet. The money should follow the child and should follow them to the education provider that best meets their needs and aligns with their family’s values. Only then will the system cater to the needs of students and their families instead of the other way around. It’s way past time Texas allows families to take their children’s education dollars to the education providers of their choosing.

Allen is still certified by the Texas Education Agency.
