It’s not black or white, Madison school board voters!

Congratulations to Chris Rickert for a real journalistic scoop!

The Wisconsin State Journal columnist reveals that a candidate for the Madison Metro School Board sends her child to a private school. This revelation comes after the candidate, Ali Muldrow, appeared to support school vouchers at a candidate forum. Afterward, she tried to walk back that support.

This is Madison, after all, where Your Humble Squire’s mere enunciation of the name “Betsy DeVos” elicited a Mormon Tabernacle Choir chorus of booing and jeering.

Ali Muldrow

Oddly, Rickert does not identify Ms. Muldrow as an African-American, except by implication. But that implication is damning. He quotes the candidate to explain that she withdrew her older child from the public schools because of “experiences that were not only negative, but were particularly racialized.” In other words, the public school was hostile toward a student of color. Nice.

As if to expiate her liberal apostasy, Ms. Muldrow alleges that “private schools retain the ability to discriminate.” Tell that to the 26,000 school choice students in Milwaukee — overwhelmingly black. And all lower income. Ms. Muldrow, you have sufficient funds to pay for private schooling but what about all those low-income families? Do you mind if they take the state subsidy that accompanies every student to the school of their choice? (Public school teachers send their children to private schools at twice the rate of the general public, it says here.)

Ali Muldrow is, as Rickert writes, “Republican’s best advertisement for school vouchers in a part of the state that opposes them.” Roger that.

Do Madison liberals cast off their white privilege by voting for the black candidate? (She’s on Facebook.) Or do they stand in solidarity with the public school teachers union?  Kate Toews, you are a white woman running against a black candidate. Does that make you racist?

Ald. Dave Ahrens and former State Rep. Kelda Helen Roys played the race card against Steve Fitzsimmons and David Handowski, white guys running against black incumbents on the Madison Common Council. MTI, the teachers union, endorses Toews. Will the April 4 election be yet another instance where Madison’s liberal-progressive-socialist hegemony derails black aspirations? (Discuss amongst yourselves.)

The indentured servants here at the Manor have been issued protective smocks as liberal heads explode.

    We’re supposed to vote for her because she’s black. That’s her resume.

      Isn’t it great to live in a city where making the right choice is so … black and white? Kinda like living in the South around 1950.
