Former teacher busted on camera calling Dollar Tree employee a ‘black slave‘ denies being racist – because she is too educated
A former teacher who was filmed screaming racial slurs at a Dollar Tree employee, says she is too educated to be racist.
Pamela Sharma was recorded calling staff member Alise Fowler a ‘black b***h‘, a ‘black wh**e‘ and a ‘black slave‘ during her foul mouthed rant at the Lawrenceville store, in Georgia, on Wednesday.
The hysterical shopper, who was with her sister, continued to shout profanities before turning to someone filming her and ordering them to: ‘Keep recording black Momma.‘
‘Jesus was white, not black,‘ she yelled out, as she was finally encouraged to leave the store following the confrontation.
Fowler is still reeling from the verbal attack, telling ‘Talking to somebody like this is never OK. Being evil, is never OK.‘
Since video of the incident went viral, Sharma has come forward to claim she‘s not a racist – and that she was in fact the real victim.
During the clip, Sharma, who is of Indian descent, was approached by a man, and asked ‘where are you from?‘ and ‘why don‘t you go back there?‘
It‘s not clear if the man was an employee or a shopper.
Sharma also claims that Fowler threatened to ‘beat her a**‘.
‘The clerk got agitated and… said: ‘You pieces of trash, why don‘t you go back to your country,‘ added Sharma, who is also a bit-part actress with roles such as ‘college student in towel‘ in Big Mommas House and a Miss America Preliminary Pageant contestant.
‘I wasn‘t racist initially and I wasn‘t racist in the middle, it‘s not until I became the victim of racism,‘ said Sharma, who said that as a ‘highly educated‘ former high school teacher, she couldn‘t possibly be racist.
‘So, I have taught at black schools, I‘ve taught at Latino schools,‘ Sharma said. ‘Individuals who go to be an educator are not racist.‘
Sharma claims that she wants to sit down with Fowler and have a heart to heart following the incident.
