*I swear, you have to ask yourself, what level of mental illness are we dealing with here? A racist post on the personal Facebook page of elementary school paraprofessional, Jane Wood Allen, has cost her a job.
Jennifer Caracciolo , an official with the Georgia School District, confirmed on Monday that Allen had been terminated after it was discovered that she referred to First Lady Michelle Obama as a “Gorilla” in a post on her social media page.
The hateful, slanderous post (scroll down to see it) asked:
“How is she going to function in the real world, by not having all of her luxurious vacations paid for anymore?”
It ended with Allen saying Michelle Obama is a disgrace to America.
Allen worked at the Chestatee School near Atlanta. Though the school district refused to speak to the media on camera, calling it a personnel issue, they did release a statement.
“Jane Wood Allen has been relieved from duty and is no longer an employee of Forsyth County Schools. Racism and discrimination are not tolerated in our school district. We are committed to ongoing staff training on the acceptance of all individuals.”
One parent at the school, Kassie Siver, who spoke on camera thinks Allen’s remarks are racist without a doubt.
“She’s putting it on social media. She may be putting it in the classroom. That’s not OK with me.”

This is the thing I always find if difficult to wrap my brain around. Are these people so damn stupid that they actually BELIEVE nothing will happen to them after these posts are discovered?
That Allen, an employee at a school, would blatantly post this message – with no sense of concealment — baffles the mind.
I would like to know what did she think would happen (or not happen) as a result of this. Did she even think about it at all?
Oh what I wouldn’t have given to be in the room when she was summoned and confronted with the post. Did she attempt to explain or justify her behavior? Or did she just stand there looking moon-eyed? Did she burst into tears? Say she had a lapse in judgement?
God. I guess we will never know.
I posed the question at the start of the article, but now, I must apologize to the mentally ill.
…Because Allen isn’t mentally ill, she’s just STUPID!
Apparently, this is not Allen’s first time displaying such tactics. Just look at a post she put up last month directly below.
Her Facebook page has since been removed.
