A Talledega High School administrator declined to identify the employee.
Talladega County NAACP President Hugh Morris says the organization is looking into the parents' claims. But he admits that nowhere in the alleged Facebook post does it mention "students" or any specific race. Morris also says there is the possibility the account was hacked.
