Same Texas Teacher, Different Mock Award

After a Houston teacher sparked national outrage by giving a student a mock award at the end of the school year naming her “most likely to become a terrorist,” others have come forward to claim they received insensitive “awards.”

Initial reports of the award given to Lizeth Villanueva made headlines with the Associated Press, BuzzFeed News, USA Today and the Dallas Morning News on Thursday and Friday, as commenters blasted the teacher’s “poor attempt to poke fun,” as the school district characterized it. At the time, the school said the teacher would be disciplined but declined to say how.

Caesar is black, as is the teacher, according to CNN. Earlier in the year, the teacher also gave Caesar a ‘black quiz’ to prove how black she was, according to the girl’s sister, Lauren Easton.
