A vice principal has been suspended amidst protests after the educator was captured on video saying he doesn’t like black kids.
The 18-second video, recorded by a student outside of the Scandinavian Middle School in Fresno shows students asking vice principal – Joe DiFilippo questions such as, “Who at this school do you not like?” Joe DiFilippo responds with “I just don’t like the black kids.”
As a result of the video going viral, DiFilippo, an 18-year vet of the Fresno Unified School District, is now under investigation and was the target of a protest that had former students chanting, “I love black people” and “Black power.”
Many however are coming to the defense of DiFilippo saying that he was obviously joking with the kids and being sarcastic. Some even accusing the kids of setting DiFilippo up.
