Ethan Hooper: Woke Florida teacher suspended after forcing Whites to act as slaves for Black classmates
ORLANDO, FLORIDA: A woke Florida teacher was suspended for using children as "political props" after forcing White students to act as slaves for Black classmates for TikTok. Ethan Hooper, a sixth-grade language teacher at Howard Middle School in Orlando, was caught under fury after he made the videos to mock Florida's rule to get rid of Critical Race Theory books. He was swiftly placed on leave after scores of parents raised complaints after watching the outlandish videos.
The Orlando school teacher's bizarre stunt comes in retaliation after a push by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to crack down and ban CRT in schools. Students defended Hooper saying, “he didn’t really do anything wrong” and they willfully agreed to be a part of the video. However, the school claimed an employee who makes videos using children for political props will be "placed on administrative leave and swift action will be taken to terminate employment."

White students bowed down to Black classmates
In the viral TikTok videos, Hooper could be seen forcing White students to do chores for Black students, making them worship and bow down to their fellow Black students and throwing around books featuring people of color in fury. One of the videos, titled 'Black History Month... The Shortest Month of the Year' sees the Black students made to sit and relax in the middle of the room, while the rest of the children bow down and worship by their feet.
Another TikTok clip titled 'Problematic Books' shows the Florida teacher frantically running around his classroom while snatching books out of the students' hands. "I'm gonna start banning these books right away," he says, snatching an edition of a Harry Potter and other books related to race and Black history being prohibited. However, DeSantis backed the narrative by saying, the teaching of Black history is mandatory in Florida public schools.
'We all agreed to it!'
Furthermore, students defended Hooper calling him a brilliant teacher, undeserving of the consequences. “We all agreed to it,” student Jaida Jackson, who participated in one of the clips, told WESH. She added, “He didn’t really do anything wrong.” However, a student's displeased father, CJ Johnson, said “If one of the teachers was using my kid for political gain, that would upset me. What if I don’t believe in that, and, you know, that’s not what I’m teaching my kid,” according to Click Orlando.
The school also seems to have made its decision regarding Hooper's fate. “Any employee of who creates videos or other content with students in an effort to exploit them for political purposes will be immediately removed from the classroom, placed on administrative leave and swift action will be taken to terminate employment,” said the school's statement.
