Many people across the United States, and indeed the world, are fearful for what the plane might become with Donald Trump as leader of the free world. Although he won't officially take the reigns until January, the implications of his election are already rearing their ugly heads.

The perfect example of which was at a Tampa, Florida, high school recently where a teacher was heard to tell a group of black students; "Don't make me call Donald Trump and get you sent back to Africa".

According to The Daily Mail, teacher at Wesley Chapel High School in Pasco County, John Sousa, has been suspended by the school, pending an investigation in to the matter.

The issue was only brought to light following the intervention of one of the black students' parents, Donnie Jones Jr, a professional photographer, who posted about the racist incident on Facebook.

"He actually admitted saying it,'"Jones wrties in the post. "He said it was just an off the wall comment and wasn't meant to be racist. 

"He said it was a bunch of male and female students in the hallway and he was talking to everyone. I believe he's sorry but he's only sorry because he's in trouble. 

"I'm going to see what the school does. They can play around here if they want to."

"If he in fact said that, it's absolutely unacceptable,' a District spokesperson told ABC Action News. 'It exhibits very poor judgment and we will take appropriate action.

"We take this type of alleged behavior very seriously and we will not tolerate it. We are following our investigative procedures and will take appropriate action."

What is that appropriate action, do you think?

Of course, if the allegation is proven to be true (the teacher has apparently admitted to the parent that he did make the comment), should he merely be sacked, or is there further punishment he should be subjected to?

It might seem like he was just making a joke to some, but remember, this type of attitude and action can have serious repercussion if left unchecked, right?
