Complaint: Tukwila superintendent discriminated

For example a group of female staffers at Showalter Middle School says the superintendent, Ethelda Burke, once referred to them as slaves. Burke is herself black.

Athletic and activities director J.D. Hill claimed that Burke "makes racially derogatory statements." Hill also wrote in his complaint that Burke said he was hiring too many people of color and said he was "making the district look too black" and turning her district into a "ghetto."

Black school workers are suing a Black superintendent.

For silliness this reminds me of the memo my company sent out years ago which read:

"From here forward the terminals will no longer be referred to as "master and slave", as this could be offensive to some people."

Little did we know that was only the beginning of the insanity behind "diversity awareness".
