TORONTO SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEE, NANCY ELGIE, USES RACIST SLUR, AGAINST A BLACK MOTHER.

A TORONTO SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEE, NANCY  ELGIE, GETS TO KEEP HER JOB WITH THE TORONTO DISTRICT SCHOOL BOARD, AFTER CALLING A BLACK PARENT, A "NIGGER", IN FRONT OF OTHER WITNESSES.

Nancy Elgie, a Toronto District School Board Trustee, showed her racist attitude
in calling a black mother, at "nigger", at a school board  meeting.


Since when is an apology enough to right the wrongs done to a particular community, or a  group of people, without the necessary actions to back it up?  And by that I mean the kind of action that would ,also, clearly, send the message to the offender and all others who would act the same way, that it is going to cost you, one way or the other, for your lack of judgement.  And especially one that was as disingenuous, as the one that was provided, by Toronto School Board Trustee, Nancy Elgie.  Elgie claimed, that her lapse in judgement, was the result of a "bump to her head". Really? That was too easy. That is what you'd call 'adding an insult to an injury'.  And Nancy Elgie also knew the full extent of what her words and actions would also bring about. She intended to slay that black mother with her words, And so she chose her word carefully, hoping to deliver the full impact. It's too bad that she also thought, that were are also a neanderthal, like she is and could not see clearly her intentions. Or the motive behind her action. To dehumanized a community, by her carefully chosen words.

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.
