Councilwoman Sharon Brooks-Hodge offended by Students' Gift
MartinsvilleMedia ^ | April 29, 2013 | Staff

Posted on 04/29/2013 7:41:58 AM PDT by sevinufnine

"I am not one of your locally home grown house negroes. I don’t shuffle, I don’t tap dance, and I don’t take out the garbage… Some of the citizens in Martinsville need to wake up because I am black. I am also a voice for black people and we are tired, we are fed up and we are not taking it anymore” said Sharon Brooks Hodge, a member of Martinsville City Council, speaking to a Martinsville television reporter.

The interview was in response to an incident at a Martinsville City Council meeting where a group of the most gifted and talented students of the region were presenting a quilt they had made for Council to display to the public.

“They weren’t prepared for that. They all cried” said Dr. Nina Huff, the teacher who taught the class and led the presentation. After the tense encounter Huff and all the children left Council Chambers stunned and in shock.

Hodge has stated Mayor Adkins called her the morning after the meeting and apologized for not standing up for her. (Which was a lie I am adding.)

Mayor Kim Adkins flatly called Hodge wrong when Hodge implied to a reporter that Adkins supported her actions. “While I regard Ms. Hodge to be a diligent member of council and have been impressed with her eagerness to learn everything she can about city government and her role as a member of Council, I find her combativeness to make a point disheartening and counterproductive…”

“I have a new perspective that our new generation of leaders, those currently in high school and younger, for the most part, as demonstrated at our last Council meeting, are growing up in their formative years, to see those of different races not so different at all. It will be our new generation of young adults, who will create a new normal in our city where a description of skin color will not ignite an emotional response as what had occurred on April 23rd” said Mayor Adkins.

anyone that can re-post or redirect this article please do!! Many in my area want to see this story go viral. The nasty hag (councilwoman Hodges) claims to lead a non-profit CHRISTIAN organization (501-C) yet act in this manner towards innocent kids? she needs to be called out on this one badly.

But you certainly play the fool for comic relief better than Stepin Fetchit ever could.

As with a very, very large percentage of blacks, it is all about “me” “my blackness” and “how can I make this some kind of insult or racism against me?”..... there every waking minute is filled with “they’re against me because I am black.”

In truth, I could care what color she is other than she was only elected to the board/council because she got enough votes in a black district, AND the fact that she is black.

Screw her, screw her racism and feigned insult. Water off a ducks back now, racist. Go bark it up another tree.

My grandmother-in-law would say, "Well, Bless Her Heart."

Having spent a fair amount of time in Martinsville, I'd expect that this person will have a hard time with re-election. Stories like this have legs via word-of-mouth.

According to the article, her kids go to Caldwell Academy. I looked pretty hard at that school for WBill Jr and decided against it. Glad, now, that I did.

“Honorable” Councilwoman Hodges claims to be over this 501C organization. Notice the contact information goes to a P.O. Box in Ohio although she resides in South-Central Virginia?

This disgraceful clown will be overwhelmingly re-elected when she runs.

Black communities in America seem to gleefully elect thugs, idiots, racists and criminals to represent them, never caring what an negative representation of their communities these antisocials display to the rest of the nation.

There is no bounds to the size of the chip on the shoulder that these Obamabots carry . . . worthless . . . thankless . . . ignorant . . . rude . . . (fill in the blank).

And I love how the people who apologized for her ignorant rude and obnoxious behavior, turned tail and started apologizing to the filthy ungrateful racist.

Aren’t we all closer now that Obambozodamnstupiddumbshit is in office?

Her only life skill, apparently, is to take offense at “racism”. Too bad she can’t take out the garbage, or tap dance. She might get gainful employment. Of course she would never aspire to that, but still, it’s a thought.....

Clearly, the implication is of one going from darkness into the light after learning. Every time colors are used in this world, someone wants to make a racial issue of it.

This kind of reminds me of the Texas official who went off over the use of the term “black hole” over documents that went missing and said we should call it a “white hole”.

The only people in America making an issue of race are the ones who think they can game the system with it. The selfish race baiting dipsticks have nothing to offer America except their hate.

All too many blacks make it a goal to desperately seek something - anything - to be offended by on a regular basis. Unfortunately, A higher percentage of these worm their way into public office.

She is a black racist obamite who hates America and white people. While most whites have become color blind... many blacks have filled their hearts with hate and evil. Sow what you reap councilwoman.

Maybe she’d also be offended that Christ often referred the Evil and the Devil as “darkness.” It’s a universal analogy and it perfectly apt.

I think it is good that the students learn what people like Mrs. Hodge are while they are young.

The permanently aggrieved, the always offended,the ignorant with the Muvva complex who are constantly offended by anything except their next Government handout.

One day I hope to see an America that is finally fed up with people like Ms. Hodge.The perpetually offended.The instantly aggrieved. The racist trash black bigots, that is constantly crying and calling others racist.

I think of the hurt this woman has done to the children. Children love to be praised for the creative things they produce. What she did will actually leave a scar with them for the rest of their lives. They won’t even realize it but from now on they will see black people in a different light. The council woman just did enormous damage to her race, and to race relations.

Sharon Brooks-Hodge is a disgrace to the human race, and the rest of the Martinsville city council is not far behind. Somebody should have had the guts to have told the racist idiot to shut up AT THE TIME she was spewing her insanity. These hateful bigots are taking over our country, partly because decent people are speechless at their gall and ignorance. We'd better find our voices, SOON.

I’m failing to see how a quilt can offend anyone.

If you look at the quilt you see the gold guy on the right, with his hands up in the air, seemingly saying 'hey come over here'. The unsuspecting black guy on the left walks over the bridge -- and note how the bridge has no support structures. Obviously it is a trap, and the bridge plunges into the water, and the black guy falls into the water -- and since blacks don't swim that well -- he drowns .... Damn whitey Gold(stein) guy oppressing the brother...I am offended.

If the black figure had been dark brown, she would at least have a little more justification. But it was completely jet black. When was the last time you saw that color used to represent black people, just as you rarely see snow white used to represent white people. It’s usually tan.

The word “black” us often used to describe black people, but not the color black.

who took most of her speech from a rejected script from The Jeffersons, a 1970s sit-com developed by Norman Lear. Seriously, Ms. Brooks Hodge (and many other, I'm guessing, democrats) this is not 1973. Can you please join the twenty-first century? We can't wait much longer.
