WEEKS AFTER TKC: KANSAS CITY STAR DENOUNCES LACK OF LEE'S SUMMIT DIVERSITY BUT MIGHT BE MISTAKEN ABOUT SCHOOL DISTRICT HIRING NUMBERS!!!
LAST YEAR . . .
We already talked about Lee's Summit "lacking diversity" in their hiring of a new school honcho. Even better, we put the "sitch" in context and noted some of the pushback from parents THROUGHOUT THE DISTRICT AND REGARDLESS OF DEMOGRAPHICS to the old boss.
After getting burned for about $700K . . . We can't really blame the officials for recruiting a mediocre list of nobodies -- Which might be exactly the kind of calming effect their district needs following a year of racially charged turmoil.
The newspaper's reporting today . . .
After racial tension, Lee’s Summit has 4 finalists for superintendent. All are white
Moreover, they claim: "In addition, there isn’t one person of color in the district’s central office or on its school board."
LEE'S SUMMIT INSIDER: WRONG!!! THERE ARE AT LEAST FOUR PEOPLE OF COLOR WORKING IN THE CENTRAL OFFICE!!! AND MAYBE ROUNDING UP MINORITIES & PLAYING QUOTA POLICE ISN'T BENEFICIAL FOR DIVERSITY?!?
Whilst arguing about racism with suburban white people has its pleasures . . . Especially (and blessedly) when chubby, white 30-something broads want to go to OBSCENE LENGTHS TO PROVE THEIR LOVE FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR . . . The more interesting debate might be how the newspaper plans to sell this kind of content to ANYBODY.
You decide . . .
