US Teacher was fired for wearing Black Lives Matter face mask
Earlier, Briefly News reported that a 32-year-old teacher from Great Hearts Western Hills, a school in San Antonio, Texas says that she was fired after wearing a Black Lives Matter face mask. The teacher, Lillian White told NBC News that she began wearing her handmade mask when schools reopened back in July.
"I've been wearing these masks since the pandemic started. I started making them and just hadn't even thought about it. I wore them to work for about a week and a half before anyone even said anything," she said.
On 31 July 2020 White received a message from the Assistant Headmaster telling her that she should wear a different mask. This was because parents would be arriving at the school soon and they could not discuss the current political climate.
