They werent 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.
has been a local story all weekend, Is everything race?jee whiz! well fine, how bout you guys, since this is what this all about offer something up.
I’m failing to see how a quilt can offend anyone.
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.
She was offended by this??
Next time they should make a quilt about astronomy and depict a “black hole”, perhaps some “dark matter”.
“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?
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?
A mind is a terrible thing to waste.
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”.
John Wiley Price syndrome. She has it.
What a selfish, hateful bitch. In a just world, she'd have been fired forthwith.
Nice quilt, shows a sunny day because of the bridge between the races. Obviously one of them is more interested in burning bridges.
What a “female dog”.
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.
