Gwinnett branch NAACP president Jorge ” J.P.” Portalatin is calling for the ouster of the county’s schools chief and the replacement of board members up for re-election due to what he sees as racial insensitivity.
The controversial comment came after an administrator said minority student discipline is a problem for school districts nationwide except in Idaho, according to a study. Wilbanks then asked the administrator, James Taylor, executive director of the department of academic support: “Do they have any blacks in Idaho? They don’t have many.”
The statement offended parents teachers and some Idaho residents who discussed it on the Internet.
Oooooooooooooooo! People in Idaho are offended?!? And they discussed it on the internet!?!?!? My God, I’m glad we have intrepid AJC reporter D. Aileen Dodd to tell us the horrors that Wilbanks has visited on Gwinnett County.
The NAACP again needs to get over itself and the self-righteous throne they continue to believe they are entitled to. Move on.
