Teacher Claims She Didn’t Molest A Student Because She’s Racist
Esther Stokes, a 61 year old teacher from Humble, Texas, has been accused of molesting a first grader. Instead of claiming that she didn’t molest the student because she’s not a , she said that she couldn’t have possibly molested the 7 year old girl because she wouldn’t feel comfortable touching a black child.
Stokes was charged with indecency back in March for allegedly sending the other students out of the room and touching the African American girl’s private parts outside of her clothes.
Stokes denied the allegations saying her prejudice against black students would prevent her from fondling this student.
When the student asked Stokes to stop touching her, Stokes allegedly made her stand outside of the classroom, in the hallway and refused to let her eat lunch and take a test.
While the fondling is still just suspected, the school principal was able to confirm that the student did not eat lunch that day.
Stokes denied ever even being alone with the girl.
A police Detective J. Blanchard said that the woman claimed “she doesn’t like to even touch the black children on their hand, she shies away when they try to hug her-she admitted to being prejudice.”
The school where Stokes has worked, Northwest Preparatory Academy, is almost 90 percent black.
Stokes’ defense attorney gave a more plausible defense saying that she’s never been accused of such a thing before.
The 7 year old’s mother, Shawntel Reace, told the media that she would be removing all four of her children from the school. The school said that any other parents with concerns should contact the school.
