I am sure this story will get Delta drawers in a runt. Here we have a supposed good teacher who takes bathroom breaks to go and write racist comments on the bathroom walls. How can she really be a good teacher with this mentality and should her record be reviewed as to how she graded Black children in comparison to other children. How many other teachers are like her but write their racist ranting on the internet?

********************************************

A well-regarded special education teacher was charged with scrawling racist epithets on the walls of a Queens elementary school Friday.
Yolanda Moorjaney, 31, of Bellerose, was charged with criminal mischief as a hate crime after allegedly writing on the wall of a bathroom stall at PS 256 Friday morning, according to Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.

Moorjaney, who has taught special education students at PS 256 for the past six years, was spotted at 7:45 a.m. Friday as she left a bathroom that undercover members of the New York Police Department's Hate Crime Task Force had under surveillance.

Officers from the task force had been called into the school after receiving a complaint from school officials that over the past month and a half they had on several occasions found racists graffiti in the school.

Before Moorjaney entered the bathroom, officers had determined that the restroom was graffiti-free. After she left, officers found two separate epithets for black people, Brown said. The epithets were written in black ink, and Moorjaney was carrying a black felt marker, Brown said.

A law enforcement source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that Moorjaney did not make any statements after being arrested and that police didn't have any motive for the incidents.

The source said Moorjaney's arrest came as a complete surprise to school officials who had the highest regard for her as a teacher.

"It's inexplicable because she has a fine record and she's well thought of,'' the source said. "She's one of the last people they would have thought was capable of doing something like this."

Moorjaney was awaiting arraignment Friday night in Queens Criminal Court. Under the Hate Crime laws, she faces up to four years in prison if convicted.

DETROIT – While Hollywood prepared for the Academy Awards, the Call ˜Em Out coalition handed out Detroit's first Sambo Awards Feb. 26 during a packed beans-and-cornbread dinner at Mark Twain Hall on the city's west side. Award recipients were not in attendance.

Voters at the dinner gave Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick a hands-down first place as the "Sambo of the Year." The ballot, which listed 27 nominees, cited his stands on the school takeover vote, charter schools, Detroit's casinos, as well as his closure of the Belle Isle Zoo and his failed promise to WHPR's president, R.J. Watkins, to get his TV station aired on Comcast.

A quiz question on the "Sambo" ballot asked, "Which Sambo said to a councilwoman, ˜You worry too much about poor people?'" The answer was Kilpatrick. His trophy was a "Bamboozled" style statuette.

Councilwoman Kay Everett won second place and was awarded a shoe shine kit, while Michigan State Sen. Samuel "Buzz" Thomas carried third, receiving a watermelon. Though no one gave acceptance speeches, an anonymous gentleman accepted Everett's award on her behalf.

Former Mayor Dennis Archer won the Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Archer said he wouldn't use his office to further the cause of Black people," Call ˜Em Out's co-chair, Agnes Hitchcock, said, "and he said he didn't want to make a rich Black man richer." The reference was to Archer's denial of a casino bid to Don Barden, a Detroit businessman.

Adolph Mongo, a political analyst and the event's featured speaker, said traitors to the people's causes throughout history have delayed progress.

"If Nat Turner, Denmark Vesey and Gabriel Prosser had been successful, slavery might have ended 50 years earlier," he said.

Citing the story of the 18 Black Buffalo soldiers who were hanged by President Theodore Roosevelt for fighting the Ku Klux Klan, he said, "If these Black soldiers had been allowed to defend themselves, Jim Crow laws might not have existed.'

Mongo said care must be taken to call out the true sell-outs, noting that some so-called "house negroes" during slavery times put crushed glass in the master's food, while shoe shiners and housekeepers were the eyes and ears of the Civil Rights movement.

Referring to the recent shooting deaths of two white police officers, Matthew Bowens and Jennifer Fettig, on Detroit's near west side, he remarked, "Every year, thousands in this city fall prey to gun violence. Who cries for the young Black men and women that die every day?"
The event, unlike the gala Hollywood ceremony, drew folks in what Hitchcock described as "struggle" garb.

That included Councilwoman Sharon McPhail, who had come from a round of visiting one-night shelters for the homeless, established in the city's churches under her initiative.

Councilwoman JoAnn Watson said the city council would introduce an ordinance similar to one passed in Chicago, requiring every city contractor to disclose any ties their company historically had with the slave trade.

She should be taken out of the classroom immediately, and fired.

Many more than those few who write on bathroom walls, no doubt.

I'm breathlessly awaiting Sarge's words of wisdon.
There is something I really like about the "Sambo Awards." I think it is the fact that it is LOCAL. It is public accountability where it counts, next door.

I get the feeling that the Queens school administrator thought he was going to catch a student. Revealing a teacher poses problems for him and for the local Teacher's Association. The NEA will have to get involved, just on general principle.

sunnubian has named the tactic. They will first try to bury her, as "punishment." This case will be worth watching.

Faheem, where to you find all this "good stuff?"

PEACE
