Lawmaker wishes to censure school board members about ‘white advantage’

A state legislator desires to censure the Democratic users of the Palm Beach County School Board who voted final week to take away the phrase “white advantage” from a declaration about the county community schools’ commitment to equity.

Condition Rep. Omari Hardy, D-Lake Truly worth Beach, stated he designs Thursday to ask leaders of the Palm Beach County Democratic Occasion to “censure and condemn” 3 board associates: Marcia Andrews, Frank Barbieri and Karen Brill.

He mentioned Wednesday that he was drafting a resolution to do so and will ask customers of the county Democratic Party’s government committee to adopt it at a assembly Thursday night.

“The resolution will censure and condemn the a few Democratic school board members who voted with the racist mob somewhat than listening to the multi-racial coalition that urged them to leave the fairness statement unchanged,” Hardy reported in an interview.

[UPDATE: The party’s executive committee voted overwhelmingly Thursday to censure the school board members. Read our coverage here.]

Four Democratic board users, not a few, voted to take out the phrase, but Hardy said Wednesday that he did not intend to concentrate on board member Barbara McQuinn due to the fact he believed, improperly, that she was not a registered Democrat.
