Bus driver out of job after racist remark to student

National News

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A white Louisiana school bus driver who made a racist remark to a Black student about the murder of George Floyd is out of a job after the child’s mother complained to school officials.

WWL-TV reports that an 11-year-old boy had a face mask below his nose and told a driver he was out of breath after running to catch a middle school bus in metro New Orleans this month.

The driver allegedly replied with a racist statement about Floyd’s killing.

The superintendent in St. Bernard Parish says the remark was offensive, and the driver no longer works there.
