Just catching up on some reading, and a good outcome caught my eye from mLive.
A state agency says the U.S. Department of Education has dismissed a complaint that sought to end the use of certain American Indian mascots and imagery in Michigan K-12 schools.
What should be MDCR's next steps? Howza 'bout your department try living in reality, and stop playing make believe games with the "protected species" card for a change. It would be a good start for this state and nation. Well, unless Malice Sharpton types are the goal for recruiting a new Executive Director. Anyhoo, to the meat and potatoes.
A letter released by the Michigan agency from the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights provided some rationale for the dismissal of the complaint. The letter said the state agency didn't provide sufficient information to infer that racial discrimination has occurred or is occurring. The letter said the state agency "did not provide to OCR any specific examples of race-based incidents nor identify any students or individuals who have suffered specific harm because of the alleged discrimination at any of the named school districts."
Ouch! The Fed peeps from this dude's Land of Misfit Toys agenda not only told the MDCR that their envisioned "get to the back of the tipi" moment is a unicorn, but they also told the MDCR their "tipi" doesn't exist too! What an embarrassing slapdown for some Michigan 'professional' Progressives. The MDCR's Elizabeth Warren-esque shenanigans didn't hunt. Either that, or on the Federal "protected species" ladder: it's muhammadans, then sodomites at the top, and somewhere way, way down on the lower rungs is injuns. Considering the actions emanating from the Obama White Hizzy for the past four plus years, that'd be reasoned a safe bet in any casino.
Ain't that right, Lansing Democrat, Virg Bernero?
