wow. that sure is one way to defund the police :confused:

It’s unclear whether race had anything to do with the exodus but the employees who left were all white and Jones is Black


also kind of telling that the town is only 36% white identifying and not one of the cops is a person of color

The order, signed Tuesday by Tulsa County District Judge Caroline Wall, allows Lessie Benningfield “Mother” Randle, 106, Viola “Mother” Fletcher, 107, and Hughes Van Ellis, Sr., 101, to continue seeking reparations under state nuisance laws.

Partial win, I guess, but given the age of the plaintiffs, the city could choose to just delay and wait. Stay tuned.

6 years ago, but I only saw this particular story today:

This makes me think of the study of delivery room nurses, who treat newborns (literally, still wet from the womb) differently depending on whether they’ve been assigned ‘boy’ or ‘girl’.

If as early as preschool, experienced teachers are already keeping an eagle eye on you because at a subconscious level they think you’re more likely to ‘misbehave’, your experience of education is going to go down a very different path.

And yet, like the delivery room nurses, these teachers would swear to you up and down a stack of Bibles that there ‘wasn’t a racist bone in their body’.
