Makes ‘F Troop’ look like a Rick Burns documentary
The received progressive wisdom (pardon the contradiction) is that racial minorities can’t be racists because they are not in a position of power. Except that, more and more, they ARE in power (Read Vernon Jordan’s obituary. Barack Obama, anyone?). As for the first assertion, we present for your consideration: Brandi Grayson.
Grayson is what the publication Madison365 chastely describes as a “longtime community activist and leader.” The lady first made her mark by shutting down Madison streets during rush hour to (somehow) prove her contention that Madison law enforcement is institutionally racist. (SNARK ALERT: What isn’t?) Yet, she was never arrested for her urban terrorism, disproving her theory. If you thought race could not be more trivialized, read on!
Grayson is running for alder against Common Council President Sheri Carter, who is also Black — but not angry enough. Ald. Carter is not a Black supremacist. Brandi Grayson is.
And a real kook! QAnon has nothing on this bully with a bullhorn.
Q. Who are America’s indigenous people? Who are the western hemisphere’s Native Americans?
A. Black folk, according to Brandi Grayson. For serious!
Q. Who built the mounds of Cahokia east of present-day St. Louis?
A. Grayson misinforms: “It was Blk natives.”
‘Black people are the original inhabitants of the land known as America.’ — Brandi Grayson, candidate for Madison Common Council, District 14.
They came here 50,000 to 100,000 years ago, Grayson says, not in 1619!
We get this from Madison365, which reports the race beat more closely than Hoard’s Dairyman covers lactation. The publication reports that when her erasure of Native American history drew objections, Grayson made a Facebook Live video expressing the problematic nature of white “allies” policing the speech of Black and Brown people. (That video has been scrubbed, apparently, or we would present it to you.)
Blaska’s Bottom Line: In other words, if you’re White, you’re not right. Madison progs are frequent passengers on the guilt trip, which is why they grovel in the gravel when lectured by People of Color. Just ask Denise DeMarb. (“Apologize, White liberal!“) Or Dr. Seuss.
