    HIT-Five Point Plan for Confronting Racism in the Alief ISD

    in Politics

    For the next few days we will define and discuss the management of racial attitudes as part of the learning of Black managers. The strategies can be used by any minority, but our focus for the immediate present is on application of the principles in the Alief ISD in relation to the racial attitudes and behaviors of Anglo Americans toward African Americans.
    Although Anglos do not have to develop the management of racial attitudes ass a part of their job skills because they are not objects of racial discrimination, we believe they must be aware of this as a need for Blacks.
    We will outline 4-key principles and a 5-point plan of action.

    Alief ISD School Board Selects Superintendent

    in Education

    H. D. Chambers was selected by the Alief ISD School Board. Community leaders raise questions over the selection of the Stafford superintendent. It is reported that Mr. Chambers has been a superintendent for 3 years, holds a masters degree, and has been questioned over his involvement in a situation related to attempting to influence an election.

    This candidate was selected over 4 Alief employees who were excluded from applying by a special vote of the school board. All hold superintendents certification and doctoral degrees. All are African American or Hispanic, as is 85% of the Alief ISD.

    No minority has been selected as superintendent or school board president in the Alief ISD.

    HIT-Alief ISD Administrators Testified Under Oath in Sept

    in Current Events

    Why were a 6 or more administrators testifying under oath during the month of September?
    We are investigating a report that there is an ongoing review of the evidence of a "white supremacist group" operating in the Alief administration.
    According to our reporters, eyewitnesses indicated that a group of white males openly discussed plans to "Take Alief over for White People".
    Those individuals are not talking openly about the depositions they were required to give. We have not confirmed the content of the testimonies, but leaks are beginning to trickle from those who felt obligated to tell their side of the truth.
    The list I was given identifies a former superintendent, current principals and/or assistant principals, and central office personnel. 
    A group of Alief community residents and supporters is organizing the first NAACP chapter in the Alief area. I am coordinating the group development. Alief is our top agenda item due to numerous reports of questionable behavior and practices appearing to target African American employees.
    Listen to the brief introduction.
