Perhaps the best way to introduce this video is to quote from the petition started by a parent demanding the immediate resignation of La Mesa/Spring Valley School District school board member Charda Bell-Fontenot. She’s a minority, in the sense that the rest of the school board was trying to decide what to tell parents about schools reopening, while Bell-Fontenot was pushing back, saying, “We don’t have to give anybody any date.”

Knowing she was outnumbered and told she could simply abstain from voting, Bell-Fontenot said that it seemed “like a very white supremacist ideology” that she comply before calling it “slavery” and suggesting her colleagues check their privilege.
