I wish she'd be fired or reassigned, but unfortunately both DeBlasio and Adams have completely gutted the city's planning infrastructure, leaving only incompetent blowhards with no other job prospects, like this lady, willing to do the job. Jumaane Williams deserves heat for nominating her, too.

We need to acknowledge that a number of city officials engage in "great replacement" conspiracy theories where the mere existence of white people is offensive. Kristin Richardson Jordan is another example of one such individual, who actively stopped a gas station turned into a development which would have been 50% affordable. These racists make everything worse for everyone.

Many of Carranza's DOE staff was definitely not inclusive of people with ethnicities that differed from their own.

How would that make sense if the staff was multiracial?

I worked at a company that was trying to partner with the DOE. All non-Hispanic people at my company were disinvited from any meeting with Carranza’s people.

So much blatant racism was ignored while he ran the DOE.

I’m not sure you know what the great replacement conspiracy is.

I understand the “normal” white supremacist conspiracy theory is about white people being replaced. But extremely similar conspiracy theories are built around the replacement of black people, In DC this is called “the plan [1]”. Basically racists aren’t particularly creative because racism appeals to the same lizard brain parts of us. I used the term “great replacement” because it’s more broadly known.

Yeah that’s not a thing. Call it something else. Words and ideas have meaning and you don’t get to make them up as you go to suit your purposes.


sutisuc t1_j26ksi3 wrote

That’s not what the great replacement theory is and you know it. Don’t engage in deliberate obfuscation.

Reporting on a twitter exchange between a bunch of wing nuts on both sides? Give this person a Pulitzer! /s

You realize these “wing nuts” are running the city…

This isn’t just Twitter drama, it’s public civic discourse with civic leaders related to civil rights.

Hear the signal from the noise.

But, she "clapped back" after she was "slammed"! Inquiring minds need to know!

Am I surprised that a hand picked goon appointed by an elected official doesn't understand what "defamation" is? No.

Appointed by Jumanee Williams, all I needed to read.
