|Nancy Elgie, a Toronto District School Board Trustee, showed her racist attitude|
in calling a black mother, at "nigger", at a school board meeting.
Why is a school board trustee, using such an offensive word towards a group of people, while at the same time, being entrusted with the education of our children?. Why is this neanderthal still occupying her seat, as a school board trustee?.
The question is not should this woman be fired over her comment?. The obvious question is why did the Toronto District School Board, decided to keep her on and by doing so, has also deeply insulted a particular community, over this racist woman's comment and insult?. If you think that Nancy Elgie's action, is also an isolated incident, among Toronto city officials, you should think again. Racism is very much a part of the overall systematic problem, that is also very much ingrained in this society. Should we allow those racists who runs this city, to continue to mock us by calling us names and insulting us, and at the same time keep their positions?. Let us send a clear message, to Nancy Elgie and to the rest of the Toronto city officials, and there are many just like her, that we will not tolerate openly racist comments, from any of them. That we as a society and also as a marginalized group, will also do whatever is in our power, to kick them out of office. Stop complaining and start acting.
I suggest that the Black community's protest goes beyond the petition that members of the public has already signed, to get this racist out of office. I suggest that we also take legal actions to recover damages, for this injury. Both from Nancy Elgie, the Toronto district School Board and also from the city. I suggest that we get this woman where it hurts the most. In her pocket. We also owe it to our children to make sure that Nancy Elgie and those other racists like her, are not allowed anywhere near our children, in the future, to cause any further damage to their developing minds. That is why it is so important for Nancy Elgie, to be forced out of her position, as a school board trustee. Surely, the Black community, has enough power to bring this about? Seriously, could she have done this to another community and still be occupying her seat?. I think not.
