Perhaps former RUSD Superintendent Ann Laing was correct when she stated:
“African American families don’t know how to make good choices for their children”
But then again – City of Racine refuses to apply the written rule of law fairly and equally – see:

The Man whose rights were violated went by the name Thomas J. Holmes DBA (Doing Business As) Park6. He is an African American Male.
The Defendants – who violated his rights – took his property – and his Business – by UNLAWFUL means are:
1. CITY OF RACINE
2. CITY OF RACINE COMMON COUNCIL
3. CITY OF RACINE PUBLIC SAFETY AND LICENSING COMMITTEE
4. KURT WAHLEN (then Chief of Police)
So when I say that when the State Sponsored Terrorists who violated the rights of African American Thomas J. Holmes have been properly prosecuted and incarcerated – then we can talk about race in Racine – I am justified and proper. Stop disguising the hate and cover-ups.Fair is fair – equal treatment under law is the law – even though City of Racine refuses to act that way.
Racine Police Officer Jon LeGath, Police Chief Art Howell and Racine Mayor Cory Mason speak after a Friday morning City Hall press conference announcing the city's new Food for Forgiveness program. Residents who purchase a $5 donation bag from Malicki's Piggly Wiggly, 5201 Washington Ave., can show their receipt at the Racine Police Department's public service counter to have their parking ticket late fees waived through Dec. 31. The donations go to the Racine County Food Bank.
City residents with outstanding parking tickets can have their late
fees excused this month through the Food for Forgiveness initiative
announced Friday morning.
Dec. 31, the Racine Police Department is partnering with the Racine
County Food Bank and Malicki’s Piggly Wiggly to offer full late-fee
forgiveness. Residents can buy a $5 food donation bag at Malicki’s,
5201 Washington Ave., get a receipt and bring it to the RPD’s
public service counter at 730 Center St.; alternatively, they can
make a direct $5 donation at the service counter.
parking ticket will still need to be paid in its original full amount
of $20. Late fees can be as high as $30, more than doubling the
original fine, according to Police Chief Art Howell. Failure to pay a
parking ticket “spirals into other challenges” that could include
driver’s license, car registration and plates suspension, he said.
thought it was a great opportunity to not only reach out to the
community and show our concern, but to address a major issue, which
is food security and hunger,” Howell said.
donation bags at Malicki’s are filled with essential staple items,
said store owner Ralph Malicki, who is also president of the Racine
County Food Bank’s Board of Directors. Those “basic need items”
include non-perishable foods such as beans or peanut butter, he said.

The 38-second video shows a pair of men climbing the ladder while another holds it on the Mexico side of the border. After one man successfully slides down the railing to the U.S. side and starts running toward a second structure, another begins yelling in Spanish, "Hurry, hurry, jump the fence."
A vehicle that appears to belong to U.S. Border Patrol then pulls up and officials emerge, prompting the other men to gather the ladder and slide back down the fence into Mexico.
The 16-year-old Mexican citizen who ran into the U.S. was apprehended by Border Patrol, Assistant Chief Patrol Agent Joshua Devack said in a video statement posted to Twitter.
Corning Investor Day – Two New Gen 10.5 Glass Plants Announced
Corning held an Investor Day event in New York City on Friday, June 14th, and rolled out new strategic targets for the corporation, but the most important development of the day for the display industry was given by an executive who was not present. Corning’s John Zhang, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Corning Display Technologies, appeared in a video feed to announce that Corning will build two new Gen 10.5 glass plants in the coming year, in Guangzhou and Wuhan, China. While Corning did not discuss the clients for these plants, we know that the Guangzhou plant will be supplying Foxconn’s plant in that city, and the Wuhan plant will supply BOE’s second Gen 10.5 plant there.
Once again, City of Racine is being sued. This time it is over alleged fraud which was committed during the failed John Dickert/Cory Mason $65 million Machinery Row Development. The Judge has reviewed the Complaint, and while the questionably competent and potentially malfeasant City Attorney Scott Letteney asked for a dismissal – the Judge DENIED the dismissal, meaning that the suit is going forward and taxpayers will once again BOHICA. Taxpayers ALWAYS pay the bills for incompetent City Employees.
The Crew over at Talking Racine has a video on this development, see:
Just remember – this lawsuit is going forward – Once again – the City’s request for dismissal was DENIED. Now the Common Council must decide whether to defend or settle. No matter their decision – taxpayers will once again BOHICA – the Common Council can only now minimize the damage. I suggest they do so – because Cindy and I are sick and tired of paying for their poor decisions and failure to confront malfeasant and questionably competent Mayors – from Becker – to Dickert – to Mason.
There are now 5! that’s FIVE in the Mayor’s Office – and yet here the City is – being sued for FRAUD! What in the World are they doing in the office all day? Or is 5! in the Mayor’s office a jobs program for Family & Friends.
City of Racine Common Council Alderpersons need to *WAKE UP* and smell the coffee.
When will former Mayor John Dickert and Mayor Cory Mason be criminally charged for all their malfeasant and criminal acts?
Once again – it is yet another black eye for City of Racine – and it’s gonna cost the taxpayers huge amounts to defend the indefensible – please, let the Common Council choose the least cost option – admit the guilt and settle.
Cory Mason must resign – or the Common Council needs to have him removed from office – for the role he played in bringing this lawsuit. The Mayor’s position must be eliminated – as the City only needs one, or perhaps two in the City Administrators position. That is a positive solution to the problem of 5! incompetents holding positions in the Mayor’s Office.
Honest, Open, and Transparent Government must be restored! No more Razzle – Dazzle con-men like John Dickert and Cory Mason.
(CNN)House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a scathing warning Thursday to a reporter who asked her a question about her feelings about President Donald Trump: "Don't mess with me."
The California Democrat forcefully pushed back on the idea that she and her caucus are proceeding with articles of impeachment because of a personal dislike of Trump, after being asked by a reporter from Sinclair if she hates him on her way out of the weekly press conference.
Pelosi stopped and said: "I don't hate anybody."
She then walked back to the microphone, and said that while she believes Trump is a "coward," that's only about his political positions.
"I think this President is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence," she said. "I think that he is cruel when he doesn't deal with helping our Dreamers, of which we are very proud of. I think he is in denial about the climate crisis. However, that's about the election."
She continued: "This is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the President's violation of his oath of office. And as a Catholic, I resent your using the word 'hate' in a sentence that addresses me. I don't hate anyone."
"I pray for the President all the time," Pelosi said. "So don't mess with me when it comes to words like that."
Pelosi is leading her caucus' efforts to impeach Trump and the House Judiciary Committee announced Thursday its next impeachment hearing will be on Monday.
During the press conference, Pelosi said Democrats won't wait until courts make decisions about witness testimony before proceeding with articles of impeachment because the White House's actions in taking these issues to court "is an obstruction of justice, and so we're not going to be accomplices to his obstruction of justice."
Asked if the articles of impeachment should involve findings in the Mueller report, Pelosi demurred. "My chairmen will be making recommendations," she said. "I'm not here to talk about that because that's what they'll be working on."
CNN's Manu Raju asked if she is concerned about Democrats in moderate districts facing backlash from voters over the move.
"This has absolutely nothing to do with politics. It isn't about politics, partisanship, Democrats and Republicans. That's totally insignificant," said Pelosi. "It's about the Constitution of the United States, the oath of office we take to protect and defend the constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic. It's about the President not honoring his oath of office. So no, I'm not concerned."
Pelosi also said impeachment is divisive and Democrats don't take glee in the situation. She said it is heartbreaking, but Trump gave them no choice. "I'm really sorry the President made this necessary."
She added that the founding fathers couldn't have predicted a "rogue Senate leader" who "will just ignore the facts and the Constitution," referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican.
This story has been updated with additional developments Thursday.

MADISON — Free pads and tampons are now available in all women's and some unisex bathrooms in the Capitol and state-owned office buildings.
The move, which carried an $18,875 price tag, comes after the Department of Administration installed or converted 138 menstrual product dispensers across two dozen DOA-controlled buildings in recent weeks.
State Rep. Melissa Sargent, who has pushed for legislation in the past to force state-run buildings to offer free tampons and pads, touted the news Tuesday as "a significant step towards equality."
"Menstrual products are necessities, not luxuries, and no individual should have to be without them when they are in need — especially in our government buildings," the Madison Democrat said in a release.
DOA began the work in September and Assistant Deputy Secretary Tia Torhorst said she expects it will be concluded this month, as officials have faced delays in one state building in downtown Madison that houses the Department of Health Services and others.
The work, which took place in buildings across the state, was paid for out of existing DOA operating funds. Asked about anticipated costs to stock the machines going forward, Torhorst didn't provide an estimate and said those expenses will depend on usage. Those supplies would also be covered by DOA's operating budget.
Buildings with the dispensers include the Risser Justice Center in downtown Madison, the Tommy G. Thompson Center in downtown Madison, the Hill Farms State Office Building on Madison's west side, the Green Bay State Office Building, the Wisconsin Rapids State Office Building, the Milwaukee State Office Building and the Eau Claire State Office Building, among others.

"Good people tried to make it work. But you can’t violate the laws of physics," engineer says of defective transmission.
Phoebe Wall Howard, Detroit Free Press
They knew the truth and kept quiet.
Their secret wasn’t a secret at all in engineering, product development, research, design or manufacturing within Ford Motor Co., say sevencurrent and former employees who worked to develop and launch the Fiesta and Focus cars that would become known for defective automatic transmissions.
“My hands are dirty. I feel horrible,” said an engineer who played a key role in developing the popular compact cars.
“You think of the gentleman who stood up for the space shuttle Challenger, saying if they launched that with the ice on it that it’s going to blow up. Well, these kinds of really horrific technical errors seemed to pass right through at Ford on this project,” the engineer said.
Asked whether the company ignored early warnings from its experts, Ford said the "vehicles were safe when they were introduced after rigorous testing during development, and remain so today after more than a decade on the road and billions of miles accumulated by customers around the globe."
The engineer said: “We’d raise our hands and be told, ‘Don’t be naysayers.’ We got strange comments. It seemed the ship had sailed. After that, if you ask questions, you’re accused of mutiny, so you put your head down and make it work. Good people tried to make it work. But you can’t violate the laws of physics. It’s a mechanical catastrophe.”
He was referring to the DPS6 dual-clutch "PowerShift" transmission used in 2 million Focus and Fiesta cars sold this decade that is the subject of massive litigation and a federal criminal fraud probe.
"It was cheap to make and cheap to assemble," the engineer said, but because the DPS6 used "dry" clutch technology, it couldn't cool itself, ensuring failures in real-world use.

A husky has become the unlikely cause of a house fire after turning on a microwave with food inside it, according to fire services in England.
The fire began on Monday afternoon at a home in Stanford-Le-Hope, around 25 miles east of London, when a dog inadvertently switched on the kitchen appliance, which had a packet of bread rolls inside, according to Essex County Fire and Rescue Service.
Geoff Wheal, watch manager at Corringham Fire Station, warned that the "very strange incident" could have been "more serious."
He said that he and his colleagues arrived to find the kitchen full of smoke.
Wheal warned against storing food in the microwave when the machine is not in use.
"Our advice is to always keep your microwave clean and free of clutter or food and any packaging," he said. "Animals or children can turn them on more easily than you might think, so please don't run the risk."
The dog was not hurt in the incident, the statement said.
