be newsA Virginia school board is calling for the resignation of one of its members, after he emailed what some called racist and inappropriate messages to his colleagues.

Isle of Wight school board member Herb Degroft sent an e-mail from his county email account containing naked women and a reference to First Lady Michelle Obama.

He forwarded two emails from his county email account. One had a picture with bare-breasted, African female warriors with the caption “Michelle Obama’s high school reunion.” Another e-mail claimed Mrs. Obama was paid $50 to model in National Geographic.
