Brandy Stokes on The O’Reilly Factor
Brandy Stokes, a former teacher at Brentwood Middle School in Charleston, SC who is suing her school district for anti-white racial discrimination, will appear on The O’Reilly Factor tonight (8 and 11 p.m. Eastern, Fox News) to speak about her suit. (The interview we announced on Sept. 12 was cancelled due to Katrina coverage.) While she was teaching at the school in 2002, Miss Stokes’s black students harassed and threatened her, and made clear their behavior was motivated by racial animus. When Miss Stokes asked the black principal to do something about the problem, the principal replied she could do nothing because the abuse was a product of the students’ culture. Eventually, Miss Stokes was seriously injured by a student and had to be hospitalized. When her hospital stay was done, she asked for her job back, but the principal didn’t give it to her. Two other white former teachers at the school are also suing the district for racial discrimination.
More information on Miss Stokes’s case is available here.
