Parents line up to slam woke Michigan school board member for saying 'whiteness is evil' ...


Parents demanded a Michigan school board member be fired on Tuesday after she tweeted 'whiteness is evil' and insisted Caucasian people are more dangerous than wild animals. 

Kesha Hamilton has written a series of inflammatory posts on Twitter claiming whiteness was 'synonymous with racism' and urging people to 'be safe' around 'white folks'.

Hamilton, whose ex-husband is white, faced parents and teachers in a tense board meeting for Jackson Public Schools which required extra security due to protests staged at the school by a far-right group. 

One mom insisted her 'racist comments should not be condoned'. 

On December 18 she wrote on Twitter: '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.' 

In a separate post on December 3 she said: 'The last thing you have to worry about is an animal - though that could be a very real threat... more dangerous are any white folks you may see on the trail... be safe!'

The mother-of-six doubled down on her statements which she has not deleted from her public profile. 

She told the meeting this week: 'We have to ask ourselves what are we angered over - the fact that it was said or the fact that it is true?'
