San Francisco fires Elections Commissioner for being white

The city commission voted to fire him and force to reapply for his job because of a "racial equity" initiative.

This is an obvious Civil Rights violation. Democrats don't care about rights anymore, do they?

They even went out of their way to let him know they were happy with his work, this was solely to hand his job off to someone of another race. Insane.

Even Mayor Breed called them out over this.

Here's a non-paywalled article. Also, he's the Elections Director, not Comissioner.

Here's what the Commissioner had to say:

[Quote]Elections Commissioner Cynthia Dai, who voted to not renew Arntz’s contract, said there was no performance-based reason for the commission’s decision. She did not dispute that San Francisco has run free, fair and functional elections for 20 years. Rather, she says, it was time to open up this position to a more diverse field; the city, she said, could not make progress on its racial equity goals without opening up its top positions.

He was NOT fired. The issue is that he was not rehired for an additional term. That is all.

Hiring/keeping people on qualifications alone...not because of race. What a concept. This is so wrong...

R8, if the contract was not renewed, because of his race, that is discrimination.

R8 But now he and his lawyers have a public statement from one of the people who refused to renew his contract, stating explicitly that there was no performance issue, but he was rejected purely on diversity/racial grounds.

And THAT is a huge fucking payday in a civil lawsuit. The money he's about to get, plus the filthy scandal this will dump on the County's reputation, makes the firing all worthwhile. And next election, when the halfwit crony they hired to replace him (who will be a moron, but a visible minority!) fucks up the election five different ways, he'll be vindicated yet again.

Go to any post office and look at the demographic of the workers to see what happens when the allegedly more equality-based individuals take over the hiring process.

Recently a guy who does Sign Language at "The Lion King" was fired for being white. Can't blame producer Disney. TDF decided to give him the ax. He should sue for all their worth.

I love the growing drama between the mayor/supervisors and these batshit "citizen commissions." The normal city leaders - who do this for a living and actually give a shit - wanted to keep this guy. They say he cleaned up the broken system and restored faith in the city's elections. But these trash morons on the citizen board want him out because he's white. It's an example of good governance being destroyed by ignorant race-baiters.

He's an older guy, and he probably wouldn't have gone much longer without retiring. They could've waited until then to spring the next Angela Davis on everyone, and there would've been no scandal.

I am laughing at the absurd accuracy of this comment. I saw a pickup truck commercial the other day that seemed targeted at Black people. Come on, y'all. Since when are Black folks shit kickers?? I am all for representation, however it seems that Black people in particular are now being over represented. I still haven’t seen in dwarfs in commercials.

R23 A colleague did her thesis on the way hybrids and fuel-efficient cars are marketed to different races and classes. She did an exhaustive survey of billboards, radio ads, magazine ads, etc. And she found a staggering disconnect along racial and class lines. This was a while ago, but it's probably still largely true.

Radio stations catering to Whitey, and billboards and magazines aimed at the suburbs? Priuses and minivans.

Radio stations that played "Black" music, and billboards in Black neighborhoods? Escalades and Navigators.

And they wonder why Black people don't buy Priuses.

Be careful. I few months ago, I posted an inquiry as to why, all of a sudden, all the commercials featured black people. Did all of the advertising agencies get together and decide to do this at the same time? Or, was there pressure from govt agencies or civil rights groups? And why, in the name of diversity, were no other minority groups featured? There had to be a reason for the overnight change. Well, I was accused of being racist and ridiculed for being a conspiratorial Russian bot.

The black population is getting the “angel” edit that 2nd wave feminism gave women. Perfect, infallible. It’s not about equality for all, it’s about the ability to abuse power too. If they really wanted to change things they’d attack the power structure.

R33 White marketing executives are terrified of the BLM movement - which has nothing to do with them - and they're tripping over themselves to overrepresent people in ad campaigns. They're not doing it because they care or truly understand nonwhite America. They're just afraid of riots and protests, and being publicly shamed, so it's their way of saying "Please don't hurt us. We're your friends!"

Just like all these workplaces and major corporations who stick a flowery preface in their employee manual or shareholders meeting about what a generous and diverse company they are, and what marvelously open values they have. They don't, really. They still underpay people, exploit foreigners, and pollute the Earth, but they have to virtue signal that they are paying attention, or else they risk being called racist.

by Anonymousreply 37November 23, 2022 3:10 PM

I like how everyone here is talking about black people in relation to this story, like it's a given that when Democrats talk about diversity they really only mean black people and no other minority groups.

Of course there is more to the story than OP’s race hustling post acknowledges. Fuck you, OP.

This person wasn’t fired. The contract was up. Requirements changed, as they often do, and the current occupant was told to go through the process again.

That’s not a civil rights violation, dipshit.

R50 But according to the public comments of the commissioner, the incumbent passed all requirements of the new ringer. He was rejected explicitly for racial/diversity reasons. They felt it was time for a new person in the job, evidently discarding quantifiable measures of performance in favor of skin color.

The extent to which this was an unfair process or outcome will likely be decided by a jury in the coming lawsuit.

Personally, I hope he sues the balls off these assholes and wins.
