The Jefferson Parish School Board has been put on blast! The civil rights organization Southern Poverty Law Center filed a complaint alleging that the school system “sends a disproportionate number of black and disabled students to alternative schools to languish for months.” Now the group is targeting Jefferson Parish for employing a school psychologist who posted a disgusting racist azz Twitter rant:
Traina, who believes George Zimmerman is “the real victim,” also calls himself a misguided “American Civil Rights Activist,” and responded to the situation at NOLA.com:
This is just another way to harass the Jefferson Parish Public School System. One only needs to read the Times Picayune to see who the real trouble makers are. Sadly, it is disproportionately young black males. Everyone knows that our jails throughout the United States are disproportionately filled with black people. Why would the rate be any different in an educational environment?
The U.S. Department of Education’s office of civil rights is sending a rep to the Jefferson Parish School system this week, and Traina dismissed racist accusations by saying, “Everything I said is fact-based, backed up by data. I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. I’m not a racist. I’m a realist.” People lie, numbers lie, and ignorance shines through regardless.
