The mother of the Texas student seen hitting a Black high school substitute teacher in a video posted on social media has spoken out about her daughter's behavior. Brittany Evans told WFAA her daughter is autistic, bipolar, and battles depression with anxious distress.

 

It's unclear when the incident occurred at Castleberry High School near Forth Worth. The viral video, which was posted by Black_natutral on TikTok last weekend, shows the student walking to the front of a classroom and ending a landline phone call the teacher is making at her desk. The student later hits the teacher on the arm after removing the student's hand from the phone, the video shows.

 

After striking the teacher, the video shows the student calling her mother using racially offensive language while on the phone. She said, "I need you to [unintelligible] now. This teacher's about to get f----- up if she doesn't get the f--- away from me. You want to talk to her? She's Black, and she's pissing me off right now."

 

The student is facing a three-day suspension, with more punishment possible.

 

Evans told WFAA she doesn't know where she learned the offensive language from. She said they don't throw racial slangs ever in her household. Evans added she's had more than 10 meetings with district leaders trying to get her daughter moved into special education classes.

 

"I wish the school would label her correctly so we didn't have to go through this," Evans said.


Castleberry ISD tweeted a statement on Monday, November 22 it is aware of the videos circulating social media and has turned the incident over to law enforcement officials for review. The district praised the teacher's conduct in the face of "criminal activity" and "racially charged comments and threats."

 

Evans told the news outlet she also commends the teacher's behavior, saying she was "upset for the teacher." She also said she wanted to apologize to the teacher who was subbing in for the day according to WFAA.

 

"She is an amazing woman. She is calm, very collected, super sweet. I wanted to reach out to her but didn't know how," Evans said. "She is, in my eyes, a saint. And needs an award."
