First there are some things that need to be cleared up. AngryBlackLady acts as if one of my main arguing points was that the superintendent was black. It seems like she is determined to fit me into her preconceived notion of a racism denier, who often make arguments along the lines of “I’m not racist, I have a black friend,” or “it can’t be racism, there is a black person in authority.” But the superintendent being black was never what convinced me that racism was not the likely explanation. It was one of the many things that contributed to my skepticism initially, and one of the many things that simply convinced me to at least wait to hear the whole story. Blacks are less likely to discriminate against blacks than whites are. I don’t know why this was such a focal point for AngryBlackLady.
A lawsuit has been filed alleging that an Arkansas High School did not allow a black student, Kymberly Wimberly, to be sole valedictorian because of her race, and instead forced her to share the title with a white student. The lawsuit asking for over $75,000 was filed by the mother of Kymberly, claiming that her daughter had the highest GPA and therefore should be the sole valedictorian. This story has gone somewhat viral in the last 24 hours among the left with a near unanimous conclusion that this is overt racism.
