The intersectionality involved in this case would make even a hardened critical race theory expert turn to hard liquor.
The Denver School Board Director Tay Anderson is stepping aside from some of his duties after a DPS parent accuses him of sexually assaulting more than 60 students. These allegations are very serious, but none of them have been reported to police.
Anderson, a Black Lives Matter activist, led a campaign to get police out of schools.
Police officers will soon no longer work in Denver’s public schools.
The Denver school board voted unanimously on Thursday to end its contract with the city’s police department, which provided school resource officers to work in the district’s schools.
Anderson, who also serves as the board’s at-large director, wrote in a Facebook post on Friday that the decision was prompted by the higher rate at which nonwhite students were referred to law enforcement.
“It was about dismantling a system that has held children of color down for far too long. I know that this change comes with critics and doubts on our ability to lead this district forward, but together we will craft a brighter future to ensure all students are safe in our schools and are no longer thrusted into the school to prison pipeline.”
Good thing the police weren’t there to keep children of color from being held down by ‘The Man’.
Denver parent Mary-Katherine Fleming, who works with sex-crime victims, had told state legislators last week that 62 students confided in her that Anderson subjected them to a range of unwanted sex acts ranging from forcible touching to “violent” rape. His youngest reported alleged victim was 14.
Fleming, who did not name Anderson at the time, testified that all but one of the victims was either an undocumented immigrant or enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
If these charges do hold up, we’ll see if the at-large director can join the school-to-prison pipeline.
Tay Anderson is also a member of the Democratic Socialists of America and fought to create all-gender bathrooms.
Some of the first accusations against Anderson came through the local BLM chapter.
The local Black Lives Matter chapter says multiple women have made sexual assault claims against Denver Public Schools board member Tay Anderson, who has denied the allegations.
They asked Anderson to issue a public apology and seek professional help for the alleged actions.
These seem to be two separate sets of allegations painting a pretty ugly picture.
True to its insistence on restorative justice, BLM was telling Anderson to apologize to the women who claim he assaulted them. The question is will they stick with that even with Anderson’s alleged assaults on illegal alien children?
But it certainly raises some questions for the “children in cages” crowd. How outraged are they over actual sexual assaults on illegal alien children compared to their outrage at ICE?
