I’m confused...this ‘councilwoman’ is offended over a gift of a quilt by children? That’s it?

If so, she’s just looking for something to be ticked about.
Get her out of office.

She thinks the gold figure should be crossing the bridge to HER.

“They weren’t prepared for that. They all cried” said Dr. Nina Huff, the teacher who taught the class and led the presentation

...I’m sure “Huff” is a screamin lib too so this is quite satisfying. She did her “duty” as a left wing honkey with this presentation and got her butt handed to her by a black racist lib. These idiots are all drowning in a sea of “diversity” and “tolerance”. Liberalism = no winners.

“…The small black person represents us before we learned all the information and then the bigger gold person is how he feels after he’s been enriched with all the different knowledge”

I'm sorry, this is funny.

Yes, Mrs Hodges was over the top. Thats funny. The explanation for the symbology of the quilt is also dim-bulbish. These are the people in charge of educating your kids.

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times;

I will no longer associate with people, whom I must walk on eggshells in order to not offend them.

Now if they leave me alone, I will leave them alone.

Near the end of the article they mention she wants to keep children segregated for education so they can continue to teach hate and division - that has to be the most disgusting part of this entire article.

That’s what I was thinking. If left to their own common sense, those children could learn a lesson early from this encounter. But the leftist teachers they will encounter throughout their school career will be sure to teach them to not believe their own lying eyes.

The term "offensive" has an entirely open ended meaning and is determined totally by the person who wishes to be an offended party. This is irrational. Unfortunately it has been enshrined in hate-crime and discrimination laws.

"Offensive" has nothing to do with words, actions or intent of the perpetrator and everything to do with the perception or intent of the "victim" and designated victims are offended by anything at all originating with a designated oppressor group member up to and including mere existence. If an official victim perceives offense then there is offense. One becomes a criminal entirely by the determination of another. Bill of attainder was one of the sore points that led to the Declaration of Independence. These laws and the civil usages of it all are very like bills of attainder.

“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.”

I have to wonder if she did mean to hurt race relations. Truly...I see no other reason for such an undeserved insult to those kids. (She also asked them if “any black children were involved in making the quilt”. Wow....really wow.)

If the black figure had been dark brown, she would at least have a little more justification. But it was completely jet black.

Which is hilarious, because even among blacks, the darkness issue is a sharp line of bigotry - the darker, the more you are looked down upon by the "high-color" blacks. Seriously.

A nanocerebric moron who is obviously in a position far above her I.Q.’s qualifications.

I have had it with arrogant racialists like this jerk Councilwoman.

Maybe she should ring Al “Sharpie” Sharpton, or Al the Liar to his close friends and “Reverend” Jackson to give the kid a sharp lecture.

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

_________________________________________________________

While Hodge was an a$$ for the way she responded, what would you expect? Some Teacher should have stopped what what was done and explained how it could be perceived by some as offensive. I can see it easily and although Hodge was boorish in her response she was right in pointing out the perceived diminuation of the “black” in the depiction. “We were black but now we have knowledge and thus are no longer black but have turned gold”. That is what black people will see, and I don’t blame them for seeing this.

I realize that this is not what was meant but it is what will be seen.

A stupid teacher allowed this to happen, its a shame. Hodge was hurt, the kids were hurt and now there are feelings inflamed all over the community just because of the teacher failing to see the mistake.

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.

I'm going to guess that a detailed investigation of her 501c will show it's mostly a jobs program for relatives and friends.

You forgot about the black guy being eaten by sharks. Sharks that “know” to lurk under that bridge because of the millions and millions of blacks lured to their deaths at that very spot over the last half millenia.

“What are the little black figures on the right side?”

When I zoom in, it appears to be the stitched on signature of the kid who made that panel.

They did, but the school system will indoctrinate it right out of most of them. They will be taught to never trust their own common sense, political correctness will teach them to deliberately put themselves in harm’s way.

some people are offended at just being alive. The best thing to do is ignor them and continue about ypur business. There is no winning. Should you inneract with them, you are offending them. Should you ignore them, you are offending them.

I suppose the quilt gift should go under the heading,"No good deed goes unpunished". The instructor should have told the children,"There are nasty people in the world, but most of the world is made up of decent people. Just ignore and avoid those like her."

Kids are not born racist, they have have to be trained to be.

The professional offended Hodge is doing a bang up job at it, on the city payroll to boot.

Oh no. I wonder if this is the first case in history where the “oppressed” actively seek to live near, work near, and never allow their “oppressors” to escape their presence. Puts a whole different spin on who is actually being “oppressed” here, when the presumed “oppressed” follow their “oppressors” like parasites seeking a host.

I have to wonder if she did mean to hurt race relations.

It looks that way, but she probably is so "brain-washed" to see racism in everything, she just reacted automatically to anything black. There is something askew in the perception of black among the dark skinned people. Sometimes I wonder if it was wise of them to choose "black" as the preferred term of address. Black is a word and a color that is unavoidable as it is universally used as the opposite of white. Maybe the race should have kept the spanish term "negro". They would not so automatically react to it. My southern forebears used the term "darkies". To me it seemed a term of endearment, because I loved them. Lately.......not so much.

Those poor children who were so proud of their quilt. One of them started crying as she lectured them.

Yes, she has a Christian Black Family Preservation Organization. According to a poster at another site she counsels black couples on how to keep their marriages together!

BTW - one of the posters had a really funny suggestion:

“Here’s what we do; inodate her office with post cards / letters witha black stick figure in the corner. Write something like

” Dear Councilwoman Brooks-Hodges. The black figure on the quilt depicted a person in the dark–of which you have shown yourself to be. The students displayed a greater maturity than you are apparently capable of achieving. Not only should you be ashamed of your behavior, but you should consider resigning due to your hypersensativity thin skin.”
just a thought

Oh dear....did she say something she didn’t mean to say? Like the kid whose 3 inch tall black figure wasn’t meant to offend?!

Just as Hodges is not letting the kid have a break neither should SHE get a break and do as WE THINK SHE MEANT to say.

No more free money, food....nothing free. THAT IS HOW I CHOOSE TO TAKE IT. I’m offended by her taking and taking and her supporters taking and taking and so glad they are going to stop....right?
