Has the powder keg been lit?
We asked for patience, we asked that Madison not rush to judgment. (“Will we rush to judgment?“)
We were naive.
A disciplinary incident at Whitehorse middle school between a school administrator and an 11-year-old girl is just the gasoline Madison’s racial arsonists were looking for. (That incident, here.)
Madison police are still investigating; school employees are forbidden to comment pending that investigation. That doesn’t stop the grievance industry from going full bore indignant despite an empty chamber.
Learning no lessons from Jussie Smollett, Covington Catholic, the Duke Lacrosse team, or that fraternity at the University of Virginia, Madison WI will, indeed, rush to judge. The Capital Times reports:
An “action-oriented” meeting is scheduled for Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for community members to respond to the Feb. 13 incident. The meeting is scheduled to take place at the Allied Drive Boys & Girls Club location.
Boys & Girls Club CEO Michael Johnson, social entrepreneur Sabrina Madison and Young, Gifted and Black co-founder Brandi Grayson will help run the meeting. The mother of the Whitehorse student will also attend the meeting.
Not to be outdone, Freedom Inc. is preparing to disrupt Monday’s Madison Board of Education.
Join us on Monday, February 26, [ actually, the 25th ] 2019 at 5:30 pm in front of the Doyle Building for a short teach-in before attending the school board meeting at 6 pm.
On February 13, an 11-year-old black girl was beaten by the dean of students and acting principal [name redacted here.] The police who were called to help the 11-year-old black girl threatened to criminalize the child when the child’s mother said she would press charges . … This is the reality of the “Black-Excellence” Madison Metropolitan has implemented — violence against black and brown students.
Sign-in at the school board meeting for those wishing to make public statements starts at 5:45. Finally, instead of teaching race guilt, how about teaching job competence? This is the city employee who accused another city agency of “white supremacist B.S.” for enforcing the same ballot eligibility requirements regardless of race.
Toriana Pettaway, Madison’s first racial equity coordinator and a former write-in candidate for mayor, has faced repeated disciplinary action for alleged insubordination and violation of other workplace rules, according to documents she and the city released to the Wisconsin State Journal. …
In five memos dating from Nov. 29 to Feb. 6, Davis writes that Pettaway has been disrespectful to colleagues, failed to complete work tasks on time, failed to notify him of where she is during the workday and used inappropriate “tone and grammar” in her communications to others.
