I do think your poll would create more validity if you actually spelled "Slaves" correctly. Just a helpful hint :)

So far it looks like 3 to 1 against the firing of Ms Thurman.

So they are not buying the liberals' "racist" BS labeling.

Why not fix the problem instead of burying it under the race card?

The question should be re-worded: Is the Times Free Press' campaign to smear Rhonda Thurman working?

Need a leading capital letter in the printing of the survey question above.

Survey SAYS .... there are more than twice as many racists in Chattanooga as non-racists.

Well, dave, they didn't do it this time...I did. When they do it, it just goes away.

A long while back, the TFP forum overseers sent me an email and asked that if I tone my remarks down a bit, others may pay more attention to me.

Laughed at the ending of your post, by the way...

Well, I did tone down a bit and those who matter still read and comment on my stuff. I mostly ignore the worst of the trolls and the continuous, multipage hotair windbags here.

The TFP is trying their best, rosebud, but just can't seem to make it...

Or maybe the racists are more likely to spam the survey. This whole thing does really bother me, though, because it's becoming abundantly clear that our city is not as progressive as I thought. Very sad to see such racism DEFENDED in these comments.

I think Ms. Favors has a chip on her shoulder. If anything Ms. Thurman is the only one in Chattanooga who gives a crap about the kids. Ms. Favors look at the headlines, everyday someone is being shot. Why do you think that is? Because people like you are always wanting to blame a white person for inner city parents dropping the ball.

Here we go with the "intelligent" remarks about the female who 'blow' dries hair (from her fan club). The antagonism she causes is shameful and sets a very distasteful picture (to others) as well as our students.

My question is why is the entire board so re-active instead of pro-active? Our students deserve so MUCH more.
