Chicago-area school board member defends likening American flag to ‘toilet paper’

A Chicago-area school member says she isn’t backing down from comments she made on Facebook equating the American flag with toilet paper, saying the flag is a meaningless piece of cloth and “a false symbol of hope” for black people.

In a post on her personal Facebook page supporting NFL players who kneel during the national anthem, School District U46 board member Traci O’Neal Ellis wrote, “That flag means nothing more than toilet paper to me,” The Chicago Tribune reported.

    So the real question is not her disrespect but how she can keep teaching in a public school since an orderly, well-managed republic is such a nuisance to her.

    • Clausewitz

      She’s part of the Sisterhood. Black female SJW teachers who couldn’t care less about their students and who’s sole purpose in life is to game the system for all they can get. Saw them in action in Buffalo. It was disgusting.

        Pretty much that.
        They are not conscientious, they don’t care about doing a good job in the first place. They are there to collect a paycheck because they know that they can never be fired, so they do a crap job.

    If the flag is so meaningless to her perhaps she should move to a country that is more accommodating to her plight. I’m coming up empty….Venezuela.

    Africa is calling you, bitch. Pack your fucking bags and leave. Lord but I am sick and tired of whining black Americans who never had it so good. Nothing has prevented them for generations from achieving success other than themselves and their acceptance of Democrat welfare. Using your colour as an excuse for personal failure stinks.

    • PaulW

      Right on: Criticism is one thing, but most seem to have not a shred of gratitude for all the benefits they get from living in America.

        So true. I have never been a racist person, but these disgusting and arrogant idiots are getting to be enough to change that.

        • DMB

          The word Racist has been so overused by the left as a means of slandering people who they disagree with has now significantly diminished in value. Other words are now being used more to try to counter act this effect such as White Supremacist, Far Right however this to will diminish in value. The left is quickly running out of words to use to silence opposition and when words loose their meaning they also lose the once potent effect they had when it comes to slandering other people. That is when the use of force through violence and threats (Antifa, BLM) occurs.

            Been there, done that, which is why I wrote what I did.

    no surprise here. a product of affirmative action in action.

      Don’t forget all those “university studies programs”.

    Here’s the flag for you, Traci: Zimbabwe! Where a roll of toilet paper costs ten trillion dollars. Why not buy a one-way ticket to get away from all those nasty white racists? I’m sure Mugabe would be glad to have you.

    Another black supremacist who hates America but loves all the American freedoms.

  • DMB

    School board members & teachers like her in cities such as Chicago are too busy shaping the next generation of Black America to be concerned about issues such as patriotism. This is the result!

    State schools are an abomination. This unhinged schvartze is just another example.

    • shasta

      schvartze – thanks for the new word to add to my non pc vocabulary.

  • Dapandico

    Does this mean the Confederate flag ‘is a meaningless piece of cloth’?
