Kansas City Council Lady Robinson Disturbed By 'Racial Violence' After Teacher's Slur

An "emergency" meeting following the report of an racial slur used by Kansas City teacher evoked strong feelings and nearly universal condemnation. 

3rd District Council Lady Melissa Robinson was at the forefront of the conversation and her remarks stand out most of all . . .

Here's some of what she said . . .

"At the meeting, the community gathered to discuss next steps and to come up with a set of demands to bring the school amid the allegations.“I was extremely angered and hurt," said Melissa Robinson, a KCMO councilwoman whose two children attend the school. “I am extremely disturbed that in 2022, our children would be exposed to such racial violence and the response is unconscionable."Robinson's frustration comes after a video surfaced showing the teacher using the racial slur during the discussion on Nov. 10."

From our vantage . . . There's really no defense of the teacher's remarks that have accurately been described as "stupidity" by his boss. 

Our only concern is that community leaders MIGHT be giving too much power to a low-end employee who is most likely ignored in every other facet of his professional endeavors.
