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 werent 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.
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.
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.
Hopefully, the kids got a good education on the reality of racism.
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.
If she is offended, maybe she and her people will stop taking welfare money from whitey.
This disgraceful clown will be overwhelmingly re-elected when she runs.
sure she will ,she sounds like a terrorist
"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 wont 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.)
and watch them play football and listen to their “ahem” music...
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 think that is s signature, not figures.
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.
I'm going to guess that a detailed investigation of her 501c will show it's mostly a jobs program for relatives and friends.
I’d say the students learned a valuable lesson - one that will come back to bite Ms Hodge (or one of her ‘people’) in the butt.
And did I read the quilt-makers were Gifted & Talented?
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.
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."
It is probably a tax dodge. A/k/a scam. She needs reporting to the IRS.
“I’m going to guess that a detailed investigation of her 501c will show it’s mostly a jobs program for relatives and friends.”
Yup...and IMO most of all so she can have all those 501C donation for herself...tax free!!!
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.
Unfortunate? You're much too kind.
She's so fugly, Laz wouldn't dare hit it.
“Some Teacher should have stopped what what was done and explained how it could be perceived by some as offensive.”
Oh...one of the councilmen did. So in another interview later she called him a “good ole boy” and accused HIM of being rude and interrupting her. She’s a real piece of.....ummm...work.
The FBI is slowly but surely working on it.
They are joined by a large segment of self hating Whites in that,evidence the muslim in chief being returned to the White Mosque.
In my opinion, she doesn’t have a mind to waste.
I think the kids learned a great lesson! You’ll never, ever be able to satisfy and make a black racist happy.
Good point. I forgot about the sharks (’I got your great, great, great, great, great, grandpappy, and now I’m going to get you!’). Probably friggin’ sharks with laser beams attached to their heads too.
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.
I SEEK TO OFFEND THEM.
“voice for black people and we are tired, we are fed up and we are not taking it anymore”
As those being “taken from” we are happy to hear it.
Da Ho must mean holder’s ppl are going to actually go to work??? If they ain’t “taking it” anymo, must be work or starve. Fat chance, most likely mad cause she didn’t get in on Pigford.
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:
“Heres 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 darkof 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
“Screw her, screw her racism and feigned insult. Water off a ducks back now, racist. Go bark it up another tree.”
Just another piece of evidence that we should have picked our own cotton!
This scumbag Hodge is a bully. Congratulations to this typical Sharpton-style Democrat for abusing a bunch of children to advance her political career. Meet the next Democrat senator.
If we could only go back and tell them lazy assed plantation owners, huh?
About three seconds of his talking makes me just check out. He and Bernice Johnson are absolute disgraces to humanity.
voice for black people and we are tired, we are fed up and we are not taking it anymore ...As those being taken from we are happy to hear it.”
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?
hese people are so full of hate. They see everything as racist...the color black is offensive. I wonder what happens to their brains when day turns to night?
If they would have left off some black outline of a person she’d be offended. Her attitude is she’s mad at G-d for making her black and it goes downhill from there.
