Brian White Jr., St. Paul educator and sexist, homophobic Facebooker, quits his job

Several complaints came in to St. Paul Public Schools after White's authorship of controversial online posts became public.

Several complaints came in to St. Paul Public Schools after White's authorship of controversial online posts became public.

Brian White Jr. vented to the online world.

Last August he lent his support to life in decades past, sharing on Facebook a photo of a kitchen oven. 

When challenged about this meme, White replied that it wasn't just a joke. "I believe in gender roles and responsibilities," he wrote. 

In the coming months, White's common sense bowed to a need to opine about many controversial topics. He blamed black women, especially those who had "bought into feminism," for the destruction of the nuclear family.

In one post from February, he wrote, "The feminization of black males" above a photograph of Magic Johnson's gay son Earvin III dressed in women's clothing.   

At the time of his postings, which we first detailed back in March, White worked as an intern principal at John A. Johnson Elementary in St. Paul. As word spread of his internet writings, teachers and parents complained to St. Paul Public Schools, which initiated an investigation. White was placed on paid leave in March after several parents complained that they considered his posts misogynistic and homophobic.

The probe resulted in no disciplinary action.

But now comes the news that White has reportedly resigned his post, in which he was earning $58,000 as a special projects coordinator and leadership development intern. The St. Paul Pioneer Press says May 7 was his last day working for the school district. 

White could not be reached for comment for this story. However, on Monday, after the story went public, White did express himself in the way most people have come to know him.
