Lemme tell yall summin...and listen good hear...
I better not see some of yall getting on my timeline with that "We need to let some white folks run _______" bulls**t hear? Whether its Jackson, Jackson State, Bo Jackson, or Action Jackson. I might block ya. And yall know I dont even block folks.
Dont yall fall for that banana in the tailpipe, that propaganda, that narrative... that they are trying to feed you that Black folks cant run anything. And further dont fall for the hype that surrounding bedroom communities run by white leaders are doing any better. Dont you find it interesting that The City, Our HBCU, and our school district are all simultaneously under fire...at the same damn time? Doesnt that puzzle you? Suddenly ALLLLLLL these Black folks are incompetent?..Money's been mismanaged for all this time and just NOW, yall goin public? And right after they tried to takeover the airport.... hmmmmmm. That don't seem strange to you?
Listen. The incompetence, the mismanagement, the scandals, etc have NOTHING to do with it being Black folks in power. But EVERYTHING to do with what happens when you put the WRONG Black folks in power. Simple as that. When white politicians and officials do wrong I dont see an indictment against ALL white leadership. Do you? Folks on here talking bout "We need a white Mayor". "JSU needs a white president". If you dont get your self loathing, self-depricating arse outta here with that mess!!!!
The Fair commission might be the most corrupt entity in the state. Been running with impunity for decades. Dont see ANY Black folks over there...and ironically NO investigations into it either. Think about it
Kaze, Kaze, Kaze. I hate to tell you this, but there is no GWC, otherwise known as the Great White Conspiracy. The Mississippi Department of Education said this summer it was going to release the school ratings in October. I can see it now, Dr. Carey Wright - who came from Washington DC and whose cronies happen to be black- called up IHL and asked if they had anything bad on JSU and if they did, could they break the bad news at the same time that she released the school ratings. Um, yeah.
Kaze, if you had bothered to read this website over the last five years, you would see that JJ has been warning about Dr. Gray and the track JPS was on for quite some time. Don't blame me that I turned out to be right when you should have been listening all along. When did you say a word about Dr. Gray's performance? When nearly a third of third graders flunked the reading test last year, did you say anything? Nearly half of the third graders at one school failed that same test- crickets. The truth is many Jacksonians such as yourself ignored JPS, did not hold its leaders accountable, and now refuse to admit there is a problem when someone does.
As for JSU, balance sheets are balance sheets. Dr. Myers either spent the money and took on more debt or she did not do so. You can shriek all day long that she is a victim of the GWC but balance sheets do not lie. By the way Kaze, JSU is a public university. You aren't suggesting it should support segregation, do you? What would happen if whites enrolled at JSU en masse? Would Kaze be happy with those changes?
One reason Mississippi is dead last in everything is that there is often a refusal to admit there is a problem. The blinders are even more powerful in Jackson where black community leaders are loath to admit anything is wrong. If someone points out a problem, the response is to call him a racist, an Uncle Tom, or accuse him of adopting "white supremacist values" (if one is in the Malcolm X Grassroots crowd.). Mr. Kaze's post is more of the same.
