It's OK if Dr. Lane Price wins, but you have to accept that it's equally good if Reverend Lorenzo Heard wins. Don't hate him if he wins. Don't continue to spew hatred and division just because a black wins. I don't understand you; what kind of religion allows your hatred and ill -will of other human beings. I guess it's the same religion that allowed some to enslave others for over 400 hundred years and kill and destroy their bloodline. Who are you people? From where did you come? Is there no shame, no dignity, no mercy, no love for anyone else but yourselves?

Even if blacks are racist, it never amounts to anything more than a thought. Blacks don't have the resources to discriminate. Blacks don't own enough to be racist. Racism hurts more when a group of people can use their hatred, power, and resources to discriminate in education, jobs, housing, etc. against another group of people. I suspect that what has happened on the school board is that the black board members have not been able to go along with a lot of the racist acts and attitudes of some white board members. Their reluctance to respond to and vote along with the white board members has probably been the result of some very racist moves by the whites, i.e. Mr. Ealum with the Lane Price sign on the back of his truck parked at board meetings. The general public, not knowing exactly what these people are up against has called them racist when they are probably fighting racism with all they have. They are suffering in the board room behind closed doors and in the public. I don't feel that God will allow this injustice much longer. I patiently await God's judgement.

Mr. Fletcher is wrong. Dr. Price's running for the seat appears to be all about race. It seems that she feels like a lot of folks, that there were four too many blacks on the school board. Mr. Maschke's seat was open, and she could have run for it. She lives in his district, but she chose to run for the seat held by the black board member. There's no way Mr. Fletcher can convince folks that her move wasn't racially motivated. It's crystal clear like many other things. Even if she does vote for the welfare of the children, her vote will only count once. The problem will be as it has always been that when their is a majority vote needed, she is going to go along with her white peers. It stands to reason. It won't be so much about the children and what's best for them. We have a racial divide on the school board, and Dr. Price is not the person to break it. If it is ever to be broken, it will be done by a black person who is biologically and environmentally endowed with the kind of strenght that is capable of denying his race for the greater good. I have never seen this in a white person. My apologies to any I have offended.

debbie44 1 year, 8 months ago on Hodges endorses Darrisaw for State Court

Judge Darrisaw seems to feel that as long as she has the support of certain kinds of people she can and will do just as she pleases. In her, I don't see a person who cares about people. I know judges are expected to be tough, but when someone uses their position unethically and abuse their authority, people can expect to suffer. Some folks my say that she should throw the book at criminals, but the problem is that many people who show up in court aren't criminals. Some are the victims of circumstances. They have already suffered enough. They shouldn't be further abused when they go before the judge. Judge Darrisaw goes as for as to threaten women to get a divorce from their husbands or she won't hear their cases in court. This lady should not be allowed to even sit on a park bench.

Is the lady behind Judge Darrisaw Dr. Valerie Thomas, principal of Monroe High School? I thought that a state employee could not campaign for a candidate during her work hours. Isn't this some kind of violation? She knows better herself. That's probably why she's hiding. She didn't even have to be in the picture. But Oh what some folks will do to be seen.

My personal experience with Judge Darrisaw is that she is a detriment to women. a friend went before her to get a restraining order from an abusive boyfriend. When the woman went before Judge Darrisaw, she experienced an angry woman who used her office to be vindictive. She refused to extend the restraining order because the woman was angry (an resonably so because she had been put through so much) and Judge Darrisaw went on to make such comments as to blame the woman for her circumstances. The woman's boyfriend was in court and as Judge Darisaw admonished the woman, the boyfriend looked on with a smirk. Judge Darisaw had given the boyfriend a red light to harm the woman, and all because she didn't like the woman's attitude. Judge Darisaw is vindictive in the courtroom and abuses her authority. A person like this should never be allowed to make decisions about other people's lives because they can't see beyond their own selfish agenda.

Dr. Anita Williams Brown is a fine person and a well-informed school board member. No one should ever question her character. She is a woman who will not compromise her beliefs in favor of the popular or politically correct thing to do. She's simply going to do what is right. One thing we have in our favor is we can count on her to do the right thing. That in itself should make us all feel a lot better. Don't judge her by what others do or don't do. We need her there. And please stop being so mean with your comments. These are human beings you're talking about. If you're that angry, why don't you go and try to get some help.

Dr. Anita Williams Brown is a fine person. Please don't judge her by what others do. And please try to get to know this lady. She stands for what is right and refuses to compromise herself. You can count on her to do what is right on the board. Regardless of the circumstances, this woman does what's right. She is also an experienced educator who knows education. Some of you miss the point and think that if a person makes one mistake then she is wrong. Please leave her there to do her job.

There's plenty of blame to go around; however, at this point we need to move forward and look to the future as an opportunity to make right the wrongs that have been done to the children. Let's focus on them now and make every attempt to get for them what they have lost.

There's plenty of blame to go around. We can't change the pass, but we can certainly look to the future as an opportunity to help the children who were affected by this.
