Just who is City Council person Carl Stokes, the big mouth who exploded on a CNN reporter for using the word “Thug” to describe the looters AFTER the Mayor and other council members used it to describe those same looters.
His wild claim? The use of that term was code racism and the reporter should just shout out the N word instead. She of course, was simply quoting the Mayor’s remarks, moments before. You can watch him turn into a crazy racist right before your eyes on YouTube and make your own judgment.
Is this guy crazy I thought? Stoned possibly?
Is he trying to burn down his own city with this nonsense?
I suspected this guy might be an opportunist just playing the race card to cover up his own dysfunction like Sharpton so I looked up what he does. He’s the COO of Bluford Drew Jamison Stem Academy in Baltimore. So far I thought, so good, he’s out there making a difference.
Here’s a report on the school.
In 2014, Bluford Drew Jemison Stem Academy West ranked worse than 92.8% of alternative schools in Maryland. It also ranked 12th among 13 ranked alternative schools in the Baltimore City Public Schools District.
He should spend less time at the City Council where he isn’t needed and more at the school where he, or someone competent anyway, definitely is needed.
