Here we go, folks - "Addressing Systems of Inequity"

You will not want to miss this special-called meeting for Tuesday, December 15, 2020, at 5:30PM in the conference room on the second level at R2i2.

Just catch it on Zoom, since there won't be any public participation. Unless you want to be in the back of the room and express displeasure at any woke presentation that you hear.

My first question is, why didn't they just combine this with last week's school board meeting?

First of all, you have to have inequity. And there has to be a system of it. Only then can you address it! Who dreamed up this agenda? Normally, it's the Board Chair and the Superintendent who set the agenda. Was this the Board's idea or is it another pet project of the superintendent (like his 100 Premier Men of Color to be hired)? Now there's a system of inequity!

Okay, what will it be?

The 1619 Project?

Systemic racism?

White fragility?

School-to-prison pipeline?

I'll tell you the first system of inequity that should be addressed! It's why this board allows two women to be seated on the board illegitimately and one (of the two) who has a $51,750 debt to the S.C. Ethics Commission still hanging over her head! 

Once they solve that inequity, I'll be more open to listening to others.
