Stick figure deemed racist by council member

Stick figure deemed racist by council member

After finishing what was intended to be a civic project, a group of high school students in Virginia were excited to present a patchwork quilt to their city council during a recent meeting.
Despite their good intentions, though, one race-baiting council member took offense to the artwork in one square, implying it displayed latent racism.
Representing a class trip, a small stick figure was meant to represent students before the event and on the other side of a bridge stood a larger, golden figure signifying “how he feels after he’s been enriched with all the different knowledge,” a student explained.
Council member Sharon Brooks-Hodge immediately chimed in with a stale argument indicative of today’s constantly offended left.
“Excuse me,” she interrupted. “Um, why is the small black person the negative image?”
Disregarding the fact most stick figures are black and darkness is traditionally associated with a lack of knowledge, the local politician simply assumed her obsession with race extended to the students before her.
“It’s not negative,” the student responded. “It’s just showing how much we increased.”
The councilwoman made it clear she did not approve and then proceeded to chide the instructors involved in the project.
During the hostile confrontation, one student reportedly began crying and at least one teacher tried unsuccessfully to convince the ignorant council member the quilt had nothing to do with race.
An apparently rational councilman, Danny Turner, apologized to students and faculty during a subsequent visit to the school, but the ordeal continues as the NAACP injects itself into the conversation.
Suggesting students undergo “training on how offensive depictions like this were to people of color,” the organization said in a statement that “this incident could have been avoided.”
I respectfully contend this incident could have been avoided if Brooks-Hodge did not look for discrimination under every rock and on every quilt.
Reports indicate the council will vote to either accept or reject a request to display the quilt within a city building. In light of one councilwoman’s unwarranted outburst, though, even if the the city agrees to prominently hang the quilt it will include some form of disclaimer.
The left’s effort to Balkanize America while attaching a stigma of intolerance to anyone in the majority for any reason is increasing in frequency and intensity. This small town councilwoman’s vitriol and name-calling proves the radical left has no intention of letting its divisive legacy wane.

    One person objects & its a done deal. This is the way the country seems to be headed. The stupid liberals like Hodges are ruining our school systems & harming our children. When a cowboy wears a black hat, he is the evil cowboy. It has nothing to do with racist. Women get married in white….wow racist!! However the guy usually is wearing stick black. Ooh, does that mean we should not marry him, or better yet, where is the NAACP. People in the dark (pictures of all kinds)always look dark, no matter what their origin. Is the world turning STUPID or is just my imagination. Hodges must have turned muslim as w/ her outlook on life….she is already one of them. Hope she doesn’t walk the streets at night…ooohhhhh….white will appear as a black stick figure. Sticks are burned or put in a wood chipper. Goodbye Hodges.

    Like Ann Coulter said, There are only two groups that are obsessed with race, skin heads and Liberals.
    If it wasn’t for race they would have nothing to talk about.
