NORTH FORSYTH — A Forsyth County Schools paraprofessional has been put in the spotlight after officials were made aware of social media posts she made recently that perpetuated racist and anti-minority remarks.
Jane Wood Allen, a parapro at Chestatee Elementary School, shared articles on Facebook about First Lady Michelle Obama with comments that used derogatory words like “gorilla” and other posts that contained anti-Hispanic and anti-Muslim sentiments, according to school officials and her posts that were screen-captured by the Forsyth County News.
On Aug. 27, Allen shared an article by Opposing Views with the caption, “First Lady Michelle Obama continues to top lists of most admired women in the world. Do you admire her?”
Her comment on the post read, “I admire a gorilla more than I admire her. (Wait I forgot, she is a gorilla)! … She is the worst example of a First Lady ever! (Oh sorry, I meant gorilla not First Lady)!”
