Substitute teacher resigns after telling class of mostly black students that 'Martin Luther King Jr killed himself' and that 'real Christians support Trump'

A North Carolina substitute teacher has resigned after she was accused of telling the class that the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr committed suicide and was not assassinated, and that real Christians supported President Trump.

Nathan Byrd, a 10-year-old student at Rand Road Elementary School, who is black, told his father that the teacher also told him and others that their clothing indicated they were 'marked for prison'.

Billy Byrd, the father, said the teacher told the students they weren't real Christians if they didn't support Trump, The News & Observer of Raleigh reported.

King was shot and killed as he stood on the balcony of a Memphis, Tennessee motel on April 4, 1968.
