'Go back to China!': Linfield Christian School staffer FIRED after viral racist rant
'America is a free country. Go back to China,' shouted Sandra Miller in the viral video
Sandra Miller, a Christian school employee, has been fired after a video went viral where she can be seen making racist comments against Asians. In the video, Sandra and her husband Roger Miller can be seen in a parking garage.
The video was originally posted on TikTok with the caption, "This racist couple started calling us racial slurs out of nowhere and blamed Asians for starting COVID. They continued to say racist comments loudly for us to hear, so we confronted them." In the video, Sandra Miller can be heard saying, "I love that we are not their country, right? I love that we are not communism — I love that very much." The person filming the video asked, "Are you saying those words toward us?" Roger replied, "Yeah, maybe, could be." Another person filming said, "We're not even Chinese, by the way." Before getting in the car, Sandra shouted, "America is a free country. Go back to China!" As they drive away, Sandra and Roger flip their middle finger and make obscene gestures toward the people filming.
Linfield Christian School in California released a statement after the incident, stating that they have terminated Sandra Miller's employment immediately. The statement read, "Linfield is aware of the video involving Ms Sandra Miller. After speaking with Ms Miller regarding the incident, Linfield has terminated her employment immediately. The statements made by Ms Miller do not reflect the beliefs of Linfield, are inconsistent with Linfield's mission statement, and fail to meet the behavior Linfield expects employees to model for its students."
Roger Miller, who serves as director of recreation and golf services for the city of Coronado, has been put on administrative leave. Tina Friend, the Coronado city manager, issued a statement saying, "Yesterday, the City of Coronado learned of a video circulating on social media featuring the actions of a City employee. The makers of the video alleged the City employee made a series of racist statements leading up to the filming of the video. We acted immediately, and the person involved has been placed on administrative leave pending an independent, full and fair investigation. Our City’s culture and values are core to who we are and that culture is based on professionalism, service and respect. We take matters such as this extremely seriously and the City has zero tolerance for all forms of discrimination."
