A Los Angeles high school teacher is being blasted online after photographs surfaced of “F–k the Police” and “F–k Amerikkka” propaganda hanging in her classroom.
The history classroom at Alexander Hamilton High School also featured a Black Lives Matter flag, a transgender flag, and Palestinian flag — among other divisive political decor.
One of the posters read “F–k Amerikkka, This is Native Land.” Another said, “Policing is a violent, anti-black settler institution that originated as slave patrols.”
“Their primary mandate is to protect property and to militarily enforce white supremacist capitalism. They are doing their jobs as they are trained and paid to do. You can’t fix what isn’t broken. That’s why we fight for police and prison abolition. F–k the Police,” the poster said.
The United States flag was seen draped over a piece of furniture.

The shocking display was uncovered by Parents Defending Education, a grassroots organization that is fighting against Critical Race Theory and indoctrination in the classroom.
In a statement to The New York Post on Friday, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Unified School District — the nation’s second-largest public system, serving nearly 630,000 students — said the posters “have since been brought down” after being up for at least the bulk of this week.
The district told the paper that they have a policy requiring both students and adults to “treat all persons equally and respectfully” while not using slurs against anyone on the basis of race, language spoken, color, sex, religion, handicap, national origin, immigration status, age, sexual orientation or political beliefs.
When decorating their classrooms, teachers are told to uphold those policies.
“Any displays that are determined to be overtly and objectively political or otherwise run afoul of our policies of inclusion and respectful treatment of others will be taken down and will be handled administratively,” district officials said.
“Nevertheless, not every subjective belief that any one display is ‘political’ can be accommodated in a district as large and diverse as L.A. Unified.”
