Texas School District Under Fire After Racist Language is Used in Middle School Test
The incident was first reported by Joy Lim, an alumni of the school district who saw her younger sister taking the exam.
The Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District is under fire after images surfaced of racist language against Asians being used in a middle school test. The incident was first reported by Joy Lim, an alumni of the school district who saw her younger sister taking the exam, “I looked over my sister’s shoulder and I saw this question that just blew me away.”
The district responded in a statement and placed the three teachers in question on administrative leave while an investigation is conducted.
This incident comes amidst a nationwide surge in anti-Asian hate crimes, racism, and violence. The state of Texas currently ranks fourth in anti-Asian hate incidents.
Texas state representative Gene Wu, spoke to “Inside Texas Politics” about the recent violence, “This is a big problem for the Asian-American community because a lot of the places that the Asian Americans come from – a lot of their home countries, their home cultures – have this sort of pervasive ideology, pervasive philosophy of ‘Hey, you just need to keep quiet. If Asian Americans have learned anything recently, it’s that staying quiet isn’t working.”
