Invincible ignorance was given a run for its money by the virtue of victimhood as a Michigan school board member under fire for racist remarks doubled down on her hateful rhetoric with the added suggestion that her detractors were too stupid to see how wrong they are.
When race hustlers like MSNBC’s Joy Reid and Nikole Hannah-Jones of the “1619 Project” continue to be rewarded for their divisive opinions, it should come as no surprise that others would be made to feel righteous for their bigotry. So it was with Jackson County School board member Kesha Hamilton when, in response to getting called out over vile tweets, she defended herself with more racially motivated attacks against members of her community.
Reading a prepared statement at the meeting following public outcry over her history of racist comments, Hamilton said, “We have to ask ourselves: what are we angered over, the fact that it was said or the fact that it was true, or is the issue or incomprehension of how policies and practices established by the white majority are impacting each of us.”
She then added, “and the last of the real issues is an attempt to silence the discussion around disparities along racial lines that exist not only in this district, this city, our county or our state, but across this nation.”
As previously reported, Libs of TikTok had compiled a number of offensive tweets from Hamilton that included statements like “Whiteness is so evil.. it manipulates then says, I won’t apologize for my dishonesty and trauma inducing practices and thinks you should applaud it for being honest about its ability to manipulate and be dishonest..,” as well as, “The last think you have to worry about is an animal — though that could be a very real threat.. more dangerous are any white folks you may see on the trail.. be safe!” and “These white women are THE stupidest!”
Her refusal to acknowledge fault for her remarks was not suffered idly as calls for her resignation were only furthered by her vitriol.
“Get her OUT. Sick of the ‘allowable’ racism,” one Twitter user suggested as another asked plainly “So why isn’t she fired.”

Time for her to go…

She should NOT be a member of a school board with her racist views

Meanwhile, others called her out over her generalities and suggested if she really wanted to make a difference, “I would just ask her to list the ‘evil’ practices she refers to so they can be addressed. And perhaps to do so without mentioning race at all. If one established principle favors some students over others, what is it? If legitimate, just change it.”

That’s the way of the racist. No matter the color. They propagate hate.

Are the members of the MI school board going to allow these statements to stand???All that would be needed is to show videos of crimes to demonstrate who is perpetrating evil. Or view your own schools videos of violent behavior to determine who is evil

Of course, those were only some of the ways that the public made objections to Hamilton and her “evil” remarks known while there has been no official move to have her removed from her position as a school board member.
“Anti-racists” know everything about you by looking at your skin color.

She needs to be removed so she has more time to spew her hate from the street

Evil is evil it does not matter what your color is, and what she is saying is evil.
— Michael Black (@MichaelBlack_78) January 25, 2023
The crazy thing is, she won’t lose her job for saying something like that. Now on the other hand, if she talks badly about another group, she’s outta there.
