Each and every parent who has tried to get their school board to listen to them in the last year will absolutely relate to Asra Q. Nomani’s speech to the Fairfax County School Board.
This is exceptional.
And the anger in the school board member’s voice at the end? Yeah … this mama got through.
I spoke from my heart to the @fcpsnews school board. Watch board chair Ricardy Anderson rage at me. Didn’t she get the memo that watching the clock is “white supremacy”? She reveals the board’s true anti-Asian animus. @ricardy4Mason, YOUR time has expired. #recallFCPS pic.twitter.com/YSbrVWtO8N

Their principal said they needed to check their privilege? WHAT?
And school board members called parents racists and toxic?!
Oh, and she’s an Asian immigrant.
Lots of mama bears (and papa bears) out there ready to fight back HARD against the indoctrination of our children and the overreaching bureaucratic BS far too many school board members are trying to pull.
Really well said 👏🏾

To speak that well when you are clearly furious is very hard, and she did an amazing job.
Keep fighting Asra

Brava! You are courageous and what you say here is obviously exactly right. I admire you very much

Nicely done. No wonder the Board President shut you down.

She sounds really mad, right?
My hat goes off to you. Just imagine if you were paying $50k per year like my wife and USED to for our daughter to be taught that garbage at private school in NYC. We were part of the flight from NYC and Covid wasn't even the half of it.

Even our private schools aren’t safe.

From the bottom of my heart I say thank you. I’ll fight my fights here in Seattle but you are what this country is all about. We as a country need more of you. Tremendous amounts of respect and admiration from me to you❤️💪🏼🔥

You are brave, correct, and respectful. Thank you

You made excellent points. I really hope that the board ADDRESSES your concerns. I think one of the most frustrating parts to these issues is that the well-considered & thoughtful counter does not come. Ignoring these issues will not solve them.
