Overplaying The Race Card?

Overplaying The Race Card?

Here's the WTTW Chicago Tonight segment from last night, which includes word that the final list of schools is not supposed to change (I sense there will be a couple of adjustments) and the Byrd-Bennett speech about the difficulty of change and the misplaced/inaccurate accusations of racism (during which there was some heckling).

    am i missing something here? bbb is an ohio resident working as a chicago government employee, i guess that's not a story. just ctu attacks yea that's the ticket. oh yea, we forgot how this works, mr. brooklyn blogging about chicago from new york.

  • In reply to JohnKugler:

    At least they got rid of that honky, Brizard. Oh, he was black, too?

    BTW, Karen Lewis said she was going to call a truce and work cooperatively with Emanuel. That lasted about as long as a CTA slow zone repair, about 15 minutes.

    Maybe someone should get out the word to "turn off the cameras."

  • With Ohio residency and voter registration... Barbara Byrd Bennett lectures Chicago on how to close Chicago schools -- and what's 'best' for African American kids in Chicago -- while officially living and maintaining voter registration in Ohio in violation of Chicago residency and ethic rules

  • The word on the street is BBB commutes to Ohio and back each weekend. I guess if da mayor backs you, you can live wherever you want. Double standards are common under this mayor. The question is how long will the people take it.

  • The OIG was clear on Cawly's (still) not living in the city- with bbb living out of the city + state, CPS employees who must live in the city and/or have been fired for not, or had to move back in to continue employment, now have a case against CPS. The open violation of this policy has happend twice. If enough CPS emplyees who meet the above got together with a savvy attorney, CPS-Board would be forced to change the residency policy to include all==city revenues would depleat or they would make bbb move or go. DID she niot get a moving expense last year ?

  • If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law, it invites every man to become a law unto himself, it invites anarchy. (Olmstead v. US, 277 U.S. 438, Justice Brandeis, dissenting)

  • @rweingarten denounces race and sexism at Occupy DOE bit.ly/14Tv8FD what about @CTULocal1 @DianeRavitch ?

  • No Illinois drivers license or voter registration, but the power to destroy thousands of Chicago lives! Illinois officials confirm that Barbara Byrd Bennett is not an Illinois resident.... 'To have effective rule enforcement, people have to be treated the same' (CPS Inspector General James Sullivan)
