Slavery Sympathizing School Board President Prank Calls From the “Office of Pre-Emptive Reparations”

Parents in Pennsylvania are demanding the resignation of school board president Brad Rigler.school board president

PennLive.com reports that many parents believe racially inflammatory YouTube videos posted by Rigler call into question  Rigler’s fitness to remain in a leadership position at the school board.

A petition calling on Rigler to resign has garnered over 600 signatures, but although Rigler has apologized to anyone he offended, he has refused to step down.

Last Friday, Rigler announced his intention to resign, but then backed away from that decision.

“Nobody wants a circus coming to Fairfield, and I don’t want to be any part of the reason the school board can’t focus on the issues,” Rigler said.

At issue is something called The Rigler Report, where “Rigler expresses his opinions on mostly political issues, from Barack Obama’s presidency to the war in Afghanistan.

The Raw Story provides a sampling of the content:

For instance, on the topic of race, Rigler said that “if it were not for the institution of slavery,” African-Americans “would not exist.”

Slavery, “abominable” as it may have been, was integral to “creating the agricultural infrastructure which feeds a great part of the world.”


Rigler seems to especially enjoy race jokes, going so far as to pose as an African-American woman named Bonita and prank call people from the “the Office of Pre-Emptive Reparations.”

Rigler maintains that his YouTube videos are sort of a verbal opinion section.

Parents don’t see the comedy and have been petitioning to have Rigler removed over his “inflammatory” videos.

“I do not want my children around somebody who feels it’s all right to put videos like that in the public spectrum,” said parent Sara Laird.
