Black Stars: Magic Negroes, Mundane Results

By Jerry PDX

In my city, with a relatively "small" negro population (could have fooled me, I can't get away from them), it's always big news when a black is hired for a high profile position somewhere. It's also always a disaster. Well, I don't know for sure if that is "always" true, but I can't think of anytime it hasn't been. A negro male has been recently appointed as Portland Public Schools Superintendent and all the signs of potential disaster are there. His name is Donyell Dickey, a 43-year-old who has been working as chief of schools in Atlanta since 2015.

As I scanned through the story, I saw some ominous signs. He has a rather spotty work history in terms of longevity, jumps around a lot to different jobs, has limited experience in school board politics and his school district scores hovered only slightly above failure rate.

Note the selfie with a background of multiracial cherubs smiling in the background, racial harmony that only a negro knows how to cultivate. He does know how to sell himself to naïve, crusading, white liberals.

In "progressive" Portland there's nothing people love more than a "magic negro." They make for great PR, and a big splash. White liberals feel smug and righteous, though when the magic negroes prove to be incompetent and racist, which they invariably do, it's always blamed on “racist” elements in the city.

I still remember the hoopla over virulent racist Charles Moose, the police "chief" whom you have featured in articles before. We also recently had a racist negro woman named Macarre Traynham appointed to a principal position, which turned out to be a complete disaster.

Traynham's story could have merited a story in itself. There have been others over the years but I can't recall their names offhand. I'd have to do some research but suffice to say, the track record of negro performance in high level positions is not good.

Right now, the PPS (Portland Public Schools) is looking for a savior. We had a recent "scandal" with the previous superintendent, Carole Smith, a white woman, when lead was discovered in drinking water and it was felt she didn't act quickly enough to deal with the problem. By all accounts, she was a good administrator but the lead issue was a pre-existing condition that recently emerged and had nothing to do with her abilities. Basically, it was a no-win situation, for which she became the fall guy (or gal).

So the school district needs some good PR, due to the aftermath of Traynham and the lead situation. The mentality in my city is that we need an affirmative action magic negro to save us. I can't wait to see this blow up in their faces. I'll keep you posted.

I knew some names would start coming to me. Ben Canada was the head school superintendent from 1998 to 2001 but was fired due to being terrible at his job (though it was never put quite that bluntly). He only lasted as long as he did, due to the same affirmative action mentality that got him hired in the first place. He got paid around $250,000 to go away. What ever happened to good old-fashioned firing for being incompetent? There was tremendous hoopla over his hiring, just like with Dickey and Traynham, but it didn't last long. Canada died in 2012 at 67.

This is due to all these white enablers who are always on the hunt for black magic. Every movie, television show and commercial features all these awesome black geniuses. This has gone beyond absurd to being downright insulting. It must be part of some white people's fantasy wish fulfillment that's impervious to reality.

Lead in the drinking water at the schools. That is an issue in Chicago too. Has been for decades. Leaching from the lead piping water sitting there until the faucet is turned on. Never seems to be a problem that is ever solved. Probably seen as problem when it isn't. But a perennial controvesy for the liberal.

At best these negro administrators are average. Often far less than that.
