Jackson should be more specific about the minorities in the traditional and historical hiring practices in America. Those traditionally left out of the loop when it comes to hiring, which has always been the black American population. Last hired, first fired. Because, Chattanooga is just playing that "bait and switch" game when the broad term "minority" is used. Today, there are so many diverse groups living in Chattanooga that any of them can be considered minority, but not necessarily the ones who have felt the brutal ends of job discrimination.
Today, Chattanooga is boasting of it's "diverse" groups from the Middle East, parts of the African Continent, Asian, Russian, Germany etc., and they're using that little trick to say "SEE, WE DO HAVE MINORITIES ON BOARD!" "We have Mr Conggooga from the Congo, and Mr. OOglaloo from the Sudan, and Mr. Saddam from the middle east. Doesn't that makes us diverse and hiring minorities?" But there's a vast difference between the "minority" groups they've decided are acceptable and those they will continue to discriminate against. There's a difference between the newly arrival from the Sudan, Congo, etc. VS those who have lived in for centuries and continue to feel the weight and brute of racial job discrimination. Jackson needs to break it down and not fall for the bait and switch trick.
This is such an inspiration and a chance to inspire. If you want students to come back as parents and be active in school, you have to treat them right when they're attending as students. Otherwise, you'll lose all that future parental envolvement. This woman, Ms. Price-Grey is a blessing and inspiration to the teaching profession.
Ms. Price-Grey is the kind of teachers the schools like Howard use to have and need more than ever now. Teachers like her were an inspiration and true role model for their students. They inspired and saw the potential in every student, regardless of where they lived or what type of environment they came from.
Such teachers as Ms. Price-Greay were instrumental in shaping and molding some of the greatest innovators and risk takers of their time. They encouraged their students to spread their wings and take flight.
In all this that Sandra Lamb woman seems to have been the ringleaders, controlling Arnt, the judge and the rest of the prosecution team. What I can't understand is what hold does this woman have over them that they were willing to risk their reputation, their careers for her? How many others she's had a vendetta for and used Arnt(whom she admits is also a personal friend) to destroy lives? Hopefully she loses her shirt in this lawsuit and they all should be put in prison and Big Bertha the prison guard become Lamb's personal prison guard.
Arnt and his rogude team and that judge, since they are immune to being prosecuted, should be barred from ever entering a courtroom again unless they are the ones being charged and having to appear before a judge and jury of their peers. That Children Advocacy Center should be cleaned out from top to bottom and real professionals brought in or shut down completely. It's obvious they were saying what the prosecutors wanted them to say to make a case.
Their little scheme and house of cards hopefully are crumbling and have met their demise, and they will no longer hurt or destroy anyone ever ever again.
Hopefully, those residents on the Southside aren't exploiting these varying ethnicities for what appears to be a cover for their own personal bias to remove traditionally black AMERICAN families from that area. That way, it won't look racially motivated if they have other varying ethnicities in the area. Because at some point those light skinned enough, like the ones from Germany, will be allowed to assimilate. Those brown or dark skinned enough will just become the ones they will discriminate against at some point.
Fort Negley was once home to many working classed blacks. They use to have an annual family reunion at some park in Fort Negley. The new whites that moved into that area complained and complained to put an end to that. All this seems just a show and put on to cover their bigotry and racism against black Americans.
Apparently, blacks from the Congo are welcome, for now. Browns from Guatamala are also welcome. Well at least for now. But black Americans who have lived in the area for decades are no longer welcome, and all this grandstanding just seems to be a cover to force them out. It's like these people are trying to play the game of favorite son God played that pitted one brother against another. Shame on your souless souls!
Were any of these clowns thinking of the consequences of railroading an obviously innocent woman when they decided to go after her with flawed and fabicated evidence that even Steven Wonder and Ray Charles could see through? Or had they become so arrogant and accustom to having their way that they expected to be believed regardless of being caught in lies even by the jurors? Hopefully, there's an outside investigation into their practices and an evaluation of other cases they've tried. They all need to be banned from practicing law ever again. And who in the &*^% is this Lamb woman? Who seems to have some kind of hold and control over these jokers that everytime she snaps her fingers they come running to her biddings? Even she admits in her sworn warrant against the investigator she assaulted, but was never charged for the assault, that she and Arnt are "friends?" Talk about conflict of interest from top to bottom?
Rico's mouth may be moving, but the force and power behind him has always been Lookout Mtn. Therefore, it's not at all surprising that he's out front complaining the loudest. The only thing is, it's not him actually doing the talking.
Although a nice gesture, hopefully in the future better routes will be found for such events, especially during what's the busiest part of the day and on a weekday to boot. Rush hour traffic was backed up on South Broad street. Also, with police claiming to be short on manpower and funds maybe these events can hire a private rider escort service company or off duty police and pay them themselves in the future instead of tying up city time and city police officers.
I still don't understand why no one took the time to look more closely at the stepmom and her allege inappropiate actions with Ms. Craft's daughter. If there's any connection to probably child molestation or prepping for molestation it would be there or with the father who appears to have a fetish for porn.
Anyone can readily determine why the welcoming red carpet was rolled out so freely. For sure, these two families will never have to worry about having to prove if they're illegals or not. They maybe German and Braziian, but in America they're white.
