SMH: Kansas Teacher Told A 10-Year-Old Black Boy "When You Turn 16 The Police Will Shoot U
(WDAF) — What a teacher allegedly said to 10-year-old Malachi Pearson last week at Rosehill Elementary School in Lenexa brought the boy to tears and left his mom seeing red.
"Me and my friend were playing, and then she like pushed us away. We weren’t fighting. We were just playing and laughing,” Malachi said Tuesday during an interview with FOX4's Robert Townsend.
Moments later, it’s what the teacher allegedly said that upset Malachi and his mother.
”She told me when you turn 16 and the police shoot you, the only person you can be mad at is yourself,” Malachi said.
The fourth-grader said that made him cry.
”I’m crying because it’s sad that my daddy died when I was a baby," the boy said.
Ten years ago, when Malachi was just seven months old when someone shot and killed his father in Kansas City.
