School Board Member Defends ‘Whiteness Is So Evil’ Tweet

U.S. institutions, particularly academia, have exhibited an increased hostility toward White Americans in recent years, though typically in a broad sense under the umbrella of a supposedly racist society that exists to oppress minorities.

One Michigan school board member, however, made no such attempts to couch her anti-White rhetoric in a pair of tweets last month.

In the first post, Jackson Board of Education member Kesha Hamilton asserted: “Whiteness is so evil.. it manipulates then says, I won’t apologize for my dishonesty and trauma-inducing practices and thinks you should applaud it for being honest about its ability to manipulate and be dishonest.”


That clearly biased attack on an entire race was followed up by a response to another user.

“The last thing you have to worry about is an animal — though that could be a very real threat.. more dangerous are any whites you may see on the trail.. be safe,” Hamilton wrote.

When the popular Twitter account Libs of TikTok posted screenshots of these and other offensive tweets by the board member, a widespread backlash against her ensued. Outraged parents in the school district she represents showed up for a recent board meeting and confronted her about the “disgraceful” and “appalling” remarks.

Instead of apologizing or attempting to clarify her remarks, however, Hamilton dug in with a reiteration of her anti-White rhetoric, claiming that the controversial tweets were “factually true.”

She went on to deride her detractors, asserting: “We have to [ask] ourselves what are we angered over: the fact that it was said or the fact that it’s true? Or, is the issue our incomprehension of how policies and practices established by the White majority are impacting each of us?”

Hamilton went on to denounce the supposed “attempt to silence the discussion” about racial disparities in American society.

Of course, this is not the only recent example of a school board member expressing views that were deemed discriminatory toward Whites.

Jennifer Solot, who was a member of the Upper Moreland School District board in Pennsylvania at the time, said last year that she could not support an otherwise “excellent” candidate for board president because he was “the only cis White male” member. Her remark sparked sharp criticism and resulted in her removal from the board.
