Black H.S. Principal Calls White Teacher Her 'White B-----'

After claiming that he suffered years of racial abuse and was unlawfully terminated, Jon Everhart sued and was awarded $350,000. When asked for comment, the offending principal could only say that Everhart's allegations were "unfounded."

(WND) A white schoolteacher in Maryland has won a $350,000 discrimination award after his black principal abused him for years due to his race. Jon Everhart, 65, sued the Prince George’s County school board, claiming Angelique Simpson-Marcus, principal of Largo High School in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, forced him out of his job because he is Caucasian.

"She called me 'poor white trash' and 'white b—-,' " Everhart told the Washington Post. "Her behavior was so outlandish." She also reportedly told students the "only reason a white teacher teaches in [Prince George's] County is that they can’t get a job elsewhere."

The jury in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland agreed with Everhart’s assertion he was discriminated against, but found in favor of the school board on his claim of a hostile work environment. He had originally sought $5 million.

"Justice was served," Everhart said. "I do feel as though I have been vindicated." Meanwhile, Simpson-Marcus maintains the claims made by Everhart are baseless. Though she refused to specify the reason for the teacher’s ouster, she called his allegations of poor treatment and retaliation "unfounded."
