Falsely Playing the Race Card Hurts All of Us (6/21/11)
Judy Green is about to get kicked off the Metro Council, but she is not going quietly.
Ms. Green is now officially guilty of several ethics and fraud violations. An independent ethics commission said so after a full and careful review of the information. They found that she tried to game the system so that she and some people close to her could benefit from money they were not entitled to. Ms. Green is fighting to keep her seat, but she must fight fair.
Instead, she is just embarrassing herself. First, Ms. Green claimed that someone was out to get her. No kidding? That's what people do when we find cheats and scammers in our midst. We tend to want to get rid of them.
Worse still, she is allowing people around her to play the race card. This is outrageous. Green is trying to claim that she is only being punished because of her race. The problem when people make false discrimination claims like this one is that they make it so much more difficult for people who truly are victims of discrimination to be heard and taken seriously. Good people everywhere, people of every color, should wash their hands of someone who invokes the race card to cover up their own fraud.
What do you think? Is Judy Green a victim or is she just crying wolf? Call us and let us know.
