Will San Francisco School Board Vice President Alison Collins Resign or Wait to be Recalled?
WAmerica is now understanding it’s history of anti-Asian racism after the Atlanta shootings. Alison Collins is the Vice President of the San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education. The African American is a strong opponent of racism. She identifies with her brothers and sisters who are the victims of White Privilege. She opposes meritocracy as the enemy of social justice. Alison Collins is an anti-Asian bigot who could not control her tweets. She was a leader of the San Francisco’s School Board’s decisions to culturally cancel 44 memorable Americans, such as Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, and Feinstein, often with little to no historical basic. I called the Board members ignoramuses on January 30, 2021 because of their studied indifference and ignorance of historical facts. They then proceeded to destroy, their soon to be renamed, Lowell High School, San Francisco’s magnet school of education for 7 decades. Alison Collins called Lowell’s admission policy “racist.” Lowell’s student body is 51% Asian American. She said at a public meeting on October 13, 2020: “When we talk about merit, meritocracy and especially meritocracy based on standardized testing … those are racist systems … You can’t talk about social justice, and then say you want to have a selective school that keeps certain kids out from the neighborhoods you think are dangerous.” They’ve also heeded the teachers union in keeping the children home this school year. The reaction to their collective incompetence has been a recall campaign For Board President Gabriela Lopez, Alison Collins, and Faauga Moliga. Then came the rediscovery of Alison Collins’ racist, anti-Asian tweets from 2016. She tweeted on December 4 “I grew up in mostly Asian Am schools and know this experience all to well. Many Asian Am believe they benefit from the ‘model minority’ BS. In fact many Asian American [teachers, students, and parents] promote these myths. They use white supremacist thinking to assimilate and ‘get ahead.’” That’s damning, but she couldn’t stop there. Nope, she continued: “Where are the vocal Asians speaking up against Trump? Don’t Asian Americans know they are on his list as well? Do they think they won’t be deported? Profiled? Beaten? Being a house [N word] is still being a [N word]. You’re still considered the ‘help’” Alison Collins is full of hatred. She has apologized to the Asian American community, blaming everything on Trump. She continued in her contrition “But whether my tweets are being taken out of context or not, only one thing matters right now. And that is the pain our Asian American brothers and sisters and siblings are experiencing. Words have meaning and impact.” Yes, they do. She says her tweets were “taken out of context.” The legal phrase “Res Ipsa Loquiter,” the thing speaks for itself, applies. Her tweet speak for themselves. She said it “Words have meaning and impact.” Mayor London Breed, 10 of 11 city supervisors, and two of her fellow Board of Education members have called for her resignation. The top 19 administrators in the central office of the San Francisco Unified School District condemned her statements. Mayor Breed twitted: “Our students and our API community deserve better.” She has become a political embarrassment and could drag many of her fellow radicals down in the next election. Worse of all for her electoral prospects, the head of the teachers union wants her out. She retains some support. Gabriela Lopez, the Board’s President, stands by her soulmate Alison Collins. President Lopez said: “I appreciate that Vice President Collins has apologized for he remarks.” She added “The City and County of San Francisco prides itself on restorative justice, and so does SFUSD. We will stand by each other and commit ourselves to work through the process of hurt and pain. We must fight against white supremacy and misogyny, not each other.” This message was posted on social media said Alison Collins was “one of the few consistent anti-racist voices amongst politicians in this city.” Yes, the anti-Asian bigot in consistently anti-racist, except when she’s not. Note to all: Racism is Racism! We also learn that the purpose of the San Francisco Unified School District is restorative justice – rather than education. Demographics are against them the school board members. San Francisco’s population is 45.4% Caucasian and 34% Asian American. 40% of the public school children in San Francisco are Asian American. The Chinese believe in education. That’s why Lowell’s student body is 51% Asian American. They will vote. (By way of full disclosure, I am a graduate of Lowell High School)
