Fired 911 Operator Can't Seem to Stop Being Racist

The postings on fired 911 operator April Sims' Facebook account speak for themselves. When you write things like, "Black people are outrageous! They are more like animals," there's just not a lot of gray area there.

But WFAA's Rebecca Lopez, who co-broke the original story with The Dallas Morning News' Tanya Eiserer, had a followup story last night. Its ostensible purpose was to expose chaos in the city's 911 call center (there are two anonymous quotes from 911 operators to that effect), but it mainly served as an opportunity to highlight Sims' unrepentant racism.

"So, apparently there are people who are looking to add me as a friend on Facebook, because they support my message," she wrote in a followup message on Facebook. "... Hopefully many other people can freely speak their minds with no fear. God Bless America!"

So, Sims is now a martyr for free speech. In her own mind at least.

Five hundred Black bullet riddled corpses per year are found in the streets of Chicago EVERY YEAR, the product of Black drug distribution wars.  This figure is more than ALL the White serial killers who have existed in the last 100 years, despite the fact that the White population is seven times the Black population.

That's funny. Last time I checked I realized we are animals. People with their centralized blinded views don't realize this basic fact. I'm guessing when people are talking bad that it takes a big portion of their mediocre intelligence. That being said, it's always easier to bad mouth someone than actually help them. Take it from someone who's been in call centers 10 years...

@strange.times  Individual whites have been barbaric.  Are white neighborhoods barbaric?  Are black neighborhoods barbaric?  Compare crime rates for each, compare drug use rates for each.  The vast majority of white neighborhoods are safe, support exceptional high schools with high graduation rates and college acceptance rates  Can the same be said for black neighborhoods?

Are whites moving to black neighborhoods, or is the opposite true? Compare the felony conviction rates for blacks and whites, and the incarceration rates for each. Compare rates of single parent households for blacks and whites, percentage of black babies born to 'fatherless'  children compared to whites.  It is difficult to adopt a white baby, with people going to eastern Europe to find a white baby or Asia to adopt a Chinese or Korean baby; no one, not even blacks, want to adopt black babies.

Answer the above questions truthfully to discern the public perception of blacks. Perception is reality.  Was the 911 operator wrong to speak the truth?

I THINK THIS WOMAN SHOULD BE HIRED TO TEACH CIVICS AND HISTORY IN THE DALLAS INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT.  SHE ACTUALLY UNDERSTANDS THE TRUTH AND IS NOT AFRAID TO SAY IT OUT LOUD.

Yeah, honey. They're called white supremacists. Keep doubling down on rhetoric they support, and it won't be long till they're your only friends.

I was born a non racist myself with a baby's butt so pure and innocent that you could have wiped the table with it.  When all my friends were cursing, chewing tobacco, learning how to farm, and playing baseball, I was winning numerous awards for never using the "N" word.  Still, as a person who has never used the "N" word, when they go to sell you that computer, one of its selling points is the social media.  You know, when people use social media, they are neither speaking nor writing.  They are social mediating.  Because of this, they shouldn't be held responsible. 

This is why I don't take facebook or tweeter seriously.  Although my butt is just about as pure as grandma Puritan's specially made butter, the protestant in me sees a conflict of interest here.

the friend who exposed her is a hero. he/she may have saved lives by exposing someone like her as dumb as doornails and in addition racist, which makes her very dangerous as a 911 operator. she sounds immature and clueless about life and should never have been hired in a position of responsibility. apparently some poor hiring practices maybe. the person who exposed her sounds like the kind of person that should have been hired - principled and intelligent. thank you to the hero person who exposed her.

This is April's way of telling other employers that it wasn't just a mistake; that she's a full blown racist and that anyone who hires her can expect more of the same.

@Johnny Bananas She may not be lying, but she isn't telling a whole truth. You are just as much an animal as I. The difference is what kind you are; you can be a friend or a beast.

@Johnny Bananas Yeah. I used to think that it was all an act and that they were actually intelligent beings. I pushed for equality and understanding. The more time I spent around them, the more I realized that they're just weighing us down as a species and I'm ashamed to be lumped with them. It's not so much a color thing as a culture thing. I know plenty of put-together black people. Sadly the only way I can describe them is that they "act white". It's depressing to have to say it, but their culture just doesn't allow for intelligent ideas to spread. Once separated from the "ghetto lifestyle" they have a chance to become reasonable human beings, but more often than not they choose to stay living the "thug life" and it just promotes more of the same.

@rufuslevin @mrbusyb 

While the mainstream media corporations have outgrown the United States becoming part of a world media, the internet . . . well, has always been the World Wide Web.  Like I tried pointing out, when people converse in social media, their actions should be considered neither oral conversation nor writing.  It is social mediating.  As such, they shouldn't be held liable.  Seems to me Facebook and Tweeter should be looking to protect their customers.  And these social entertainment things that make people part of the show as actors also sell a lot of computers.

Again, make people part of the show as "actors."  I think this woman had a valid point.  But she should have included everyone and not just Afro Americans as, in her criticisms, she should have included all races, colors and creeds.  Indeed, a good argument can be made that we are all idiots equally.
