Henry said that he had looked up the statewide average of Black teachers and found that it was 10 percent. He then said that the Houston Independent School District, which was "used as a shining example," had an average of 36 percent Black teachers and a 4 percent dropout rate.

Following the conclusions of a Nobel prize-winner in medicine and other top level experts, I have attributed what the medical establishment calls new cases, breakthroughs, delta variant, to adverse responses to the vaccine itself, thus questioning the existence of the delta variant. He describes being “fact checked” and deplatformed by a high school dropout employed to shutdown “misinformation,” which is everything that diverges from the official narrative of the day. We have reached the point in our absurdity where distinguished scientists are censored by total dumbshits.

In a tweet, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner said that he was "deeply saddened and offended" by Henry's comments.

"His comments are unacceptable, and I recommend that he resign immediately," Turner wrote. "Suggesting that having more Black teachers in a school district can create an increase in the dropout rate or a decline in classroom achievement is despicable. The rich diversity that resides in our city and region unites us more than ever. We should not tolerate those who seek to divide, but rather work with everyone to ensure equal opportunities of educational access for all."

Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo echoed Turner's comments in her own statement.

"As a product of Cy-Fair ISD, I'm appalled by Board Member Scott Henry's insinuation that more Black teachers lead to more dropouts," Hidalgo said. "Divisiveness and racism are what's hurting our students. Not diversity. Resign."

Henry responded to the criticism in a statement on Wednesday. He said that the meaning of his words was being twisted by "political actors for their political purposes."

I am proud that our school district has placed an emphasis on hiring diverse teachers and that we exceed in doing so," part of his statement said.

He added that he won't let "disingenuous political attacks" discourage him from his goals as a trustee on the school board.
