Madison’s race warriors are fanning the flames

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.

No Cops Feb. 25

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. 

That story, here.

    In related news:

    “The presumption of innocence, a bedrock in the search for justice, was trampled upon at the expense of Mr. (Jussie) Smollett and notably, on the eve of a Mayoral election.

    “Mr. Smollett is a young man of IMPECCABLE CHARACTER AND INTEGRITY WHO FIERCELY AND SOLEMNLY MAINTAINS HIS INNOCENCE, betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing.” (caps mine)

    Isn’t that approach reserved for those who identify as Y-Chromosomal Unite accused of a college campus sexual peccadillo or an alleged #MeToo violation sometime in the last three + decades, or been nominated to the Supreme Court by President Trump?

    These people are exceptionally brain damaged; Monday is NOT the 26th of February.

    The will go straight down the path they usually do, attack, smear, ignore that the investigation is not complete, smear the investigators and the investigation as racist, reject any investigative findings that counter their original slears of racism, and act like a bunch of damn fools at the board meeting.

      $333.33 per day * 5 days per week = $1,666.65 per week
      $1,666.65 per week * 52 weeks per year = $86,665.80 per year.

Her misspellings and hilarious word choice & sentence structure, heck, her understanding of of the English language (and being too monumentally imbecilic [also Whitey’s fault] to use spellcheck) is lacking to say the least, and laughable to say the most.

      Bottom line? She’s way out of her league and in way over her head. Her superiors are too chicken-$#!t to do anything for fear of raising the wrath of local politically active minorities (who will scream RAYcism at the drop of a tam) with WAY too much time on their hands.

        I wonder how much hate mail Rickert got from all those tolerant Madison liberals for having the temerity to hold a black woman to the same standards as anyone else.. On a related note, after the Smollett hoax was exposed, some conservative commentators expressed bafflement as to how all those lefties who immediately “believed” it could have been so gullible. Gullibility had nothing to do with it; the correct term is duplicity. Whatever else they might be, commentators on CNN and op/ed writers for the NYT aren’t stupid, but they are duplicitous. They understood as clearly as anyone on Fox News that Smollett had concocted a transparent fabrication–but they couldn’t bring themselves to voice even a whisper of dissent against the narrative, however implausible, put forward by a gay black Trump hater. It’s called a double standard and it’s a direct symptom of the toxic fraud called identity politics.

    If she were employed in any for-profit company (i.e., a real job), Toriana’s behavior would have resulted in her ass being kicked to the curb long ago. But since her employer is Madison city government, she gets “disciplinary action,” meaning a carefully worded memo placed in her file, where it will be collect dust as she continues collecting her inflated salary for the next 30 years. (I’m extremely curious about the charge of “inappropriate grammar,” something I’ve long thought should be a capital offense.) As for the tone, just imagine any outraged black woman on any talk show , and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what Toriana’s “inappropriate tone” must be like.

      That’s a fair statement; here’s an explanation.

      You wrote, “As for the tone, just imagine any outraged black woman on any talk show, and you’ve got a pretty good idea of what Toriana’s ‘inappropriate tone’ must be like.”

      You dumped all outraged black women into one container based on race. Let me be real clear, I personally think that prejudice would be a more accurate word to use but leftist race baiting social justice warrior imbeciles would instantly conflate what you wrote to racism. When I wrote “I understand what you’re saying but do you realize that that sounds rather racist?” I was not accusing you of being racist in any way, I was sharing how what you wrote can be perceived and my I think my second sentence was very clear about that – “I don’t think that’s what you intended, but it’s what came across.” It’s okay if you don’t agree.

      Maybe a single visual comparison would work to cover your point…

    The thread that binds Toriana and the Whitehorse incident together is the notion that black people should free from the standards of behavior that apply to the rest of society. For some reason it is considered racist standards and consequences apply to this specific demographic. This, of course, is just a different facet of the entitlement hustle run by hoodrats on feeble minded white lefties. Though in fairness some of them aren’t stupid, they just see this as tool to burn it all down.

        The only “hope and change” that Obama brought to us was the hope of identity politics to shore up growing identity superiority and that was all derived from the societal change of enabling emotional thinking over critical thinking which has caused intentional tribalization and hate within our society. Obama enabled massive social division along every imaginable line, he had the ability to bring us closer together as a society but he chose otherwise.
