White teacher wins $350,000 in Prince George’s schools bias lawsuit
Washington Post | 8/8/2014 | Ovetta Wiggins

Posted on 08/10/2014 5:25:15 AM PDT by markomalley

A former Prince George’s County teacher won a $350,000 jury award after accusing the school system of discriminating against him because he is white.

Jon Everhart alleged in his lawsuit against the Prince George’s County school board that a black principal forced him out of his job because of his race.

“Justice was served,” Everhart said. “I do feel as though I have been vindicated.”

Everhart, 65, speaking by phone from Ohio after the verdict in the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, said he faced years of racial harassment from the Largo High School principal, who he said repeatedly told staffers and students that she planned to fire him.

“She called me ‘poor white trash’ and ‘white b----,’ ” Everhart said of the principal, Angelique Simpson-Marcus, who leads the 1,100-student school in Upper Marlboro. “Her behavior was so outlandish.”

Yep. Prince George County is the wealthiest black county, per household income, in the United States. Mostly well-paid government employees all living adjacent to D.C. Oh well,so much for being deprived and being discriminated against due to white racism..no, wait.

It seems that in my area we have two groups of black people, those who seem to love everyone and are extremely pleasant to deal with and those who can’t stand the sight of a white person, scowling and looking like a dark cloud all the time. Overt racism seems to be far more common in blacks now than in whites in South Carolina.

For many of them, it doesn’t change their racial hatred; they know they are working workfare jobs, and they know they only have them as tokens. That eats them up inside...

There is no solution to such tribal hatred; I just make sure my children know it is there (so they aren’t naïve victims of a shooting or robbery because nobody will have an honest discussion about race).

Affirmative actions can’t be fired, they may be given higher positions, but they can’t be fired. She is an affirmative action. So, yes, unless she has been moved to a higher position, she is still employed by the school.

It does when they deal with their people, but they know when they are around real “makers” that they don’t understand many of the words they hear or things discussed.

Sad, really; nobody was honest with them giving them unearned diplomas, degrees, jobs, or promotions, yet they see a stark contrast between themselves and others...

I was out walking Friday and passed two black women, I always smile and say “Hi” to walkers and bike riders I pass on the trail. One of them looked at her friend, the other one glared at me. When I was walking back I passed the first one walking alone. I smiled at her and she smiled back. Little things. I keep smiling.

A dirtly little secret that most of the public is not aware of (because the media won’t report on it) is that contractors often do the work that federal gubmint employees should be doing. The taxpayer essentially pays twice for the same “job” as many of the paper pushers can’t, won’t, or don’t know how to get the work done. And the more work the contactors do, the more the government relies on them. Of course, its a condition that the gubmint employees are quite comfortable with.

And you’re right; the gubmint types do feel superior because they view their role as “managing” contractors. This gives them a sense of power and also provides them with a convenient scape goat when things go wrong, as they often do.

The gubmint is so corrupt that nodoby even notices it anymore.

Prince George County is the wealthiest black county, per household income, in the United States.

And that still doesn't stop it from having 20% of the homicides in the state of Maryland, despite having a 2008 median family income of $81,908. The county is 64% black.

Unfortunately, the black principal who is a racist degenerate neither got fired nor has to pay the $350,000 personally. PG county is a morass of racists...both GibMeDats and government "workers". maryland is THE Freak state. Escape while you can. It is hopeless there.

On a side note.. Turned on the radio yesterday and Rick Edelston was offering financial advice. A Chicago teacher called in to see if she should be doing more to prepare for her retirement in 3 years. Her pension will be $75,000 a year, house and car are paid for, insurance is paid for by taxpayers. She already had $450,000 in savings and a $450,000 house free and clear. Her monthy expenses run $1,200. Edelston thought she was in pretty good shape and was not too worried for her. Kinda makes you feel good all over knowing these ‘workfare’ people will enjoy a happy retirement.

I was recently leaving my doctor’s office...A set of double doors at the top of concrete steps led down to the parking lot...An old black fella was working slowly to get to the top steps...He had a cane in one hand was was holding onto the rail with the other one...

I saw him thru the doors and when I departed I held the one door open for him...He made it to the doors and instead of going thru the door I was holding open, he went to the other door and struggled to get it open and then walked thru...

As he was going thru the other door, I just chuckled out loud and said, ‘whatever’...

Here's the weird part from the article:
The jury sided with Everhart on the discrimination claim, but it found in favor of the county school board on Everhart’s claim of a hostile work environment.

Wouldn't the discrimination would create a very hostile work environment?
