SF School Board Members Recalled, Including Racist Alison Collins
February 16, 2022
SAN FRANCISCO, California—Voters have recalled three school board members who managed to infuriate the Asian and Caucasian population for trying to rename multiple schools, getting rid of merit-based admission at the prestigious Lowell High School, and other progressive policies during their short tenure.
First returns show that voters overwhelmingly voted “yes” to recall Alison Collins, Gabriela López, and Faauuga Moliga, three of the board’s seven members — 79 percent voted to remove Collins, 75 percent for Lopez and 73 percent for Moliga, reports Politico.
School Board member Alison Collins made headlines last year when she referred to Asian-Americans as “house n****r[s]” in a 2016 tweet thread, in a comment highlighted by the organizer of a movement to recall her, according to the National Review.
Vice president on the school board, Alison Collins, published a long Twitter thread in December 2016 in which she explained her intention “to combat anti-black racism in the Asian community at [sic] my daughters’ mostly Asian-Am[erican] school.”
Collins accused “many Asian American Ts, Ss, and Ps” — teachers, students, and parents — of promoting “the ‘model minority BS” and of using “white supremacist thinking to assimilate and ‘get ahead,’” reported the National Review.
“I even see it in my FB timeline with former HS peers. Their TLs are full of White and Asian ppl. No recognition #BlackLivesMatter exists,” she stated, before describing how her daughter had experienced Asian-American boys teasing a Latino classmate. “She spoke up when none of the other staff did,” Collins recalled. “The after-school counselor was Asian. :/”
Collins then demanded to know “[w]where are the vocal Asians speaking up against Trump?”
“Don’t Asian Americans know they are on his list as well?” Collins continued. “Do they think they won’t be deported? profiled? beaten? Being a house n****r is still being a n****r. You’re still considered “the help.”
The entire thread was highlighted by a parent-led group titled “Recall SF School Board.”
“Today San Franciscans made a clear statement: We need a Board of Education focused like a laser on stabilizing our schools, keeping them open, and supporting students and families in the most effective possible way,” said state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) in a statement following the announcement of the results.
Parents became fed up of distance learning dragging on, school board members wanting to rename dozens of institutions, including Abraham Lincoln High School, pushing an end to merit-based admission at Lowell, and Collins trying to sue the school district for $87 million after she was penalized for calling Asian-Americans “white supremacist” and “house n***ers.”
Lowell High School is one of the best high schools in the United States. Only the best of the best in San Francisco are able to pass the merit-based admission standards. Lowell is 56.8% Asian, 18.3% Caucasian, 11.5% Latino, and 1.7% African-American, according to School Digger.
African-American students have never achieved more than 1.7 to 1.8% of the student population in decades ever since they were outclassed by the incoming Asian students. This bothered liberal progressives who have no problems with African-Americans dominating sports but somehow feel insulted Asians are “achieving too much.”
“Asians should know their place,” a Collins supporter commented.
