If you don’t know who the Kateba-Hussein family is, you can read the story about their little boy in this report from Fox-41. It’s probably the best of the 5,197 stories that JCPS has given the media because, in this one, they basically said the Hussein’s little boy put himself on a hook in the bathroom at Frayer Elementary. I’m sure this link is in an earlier Voodoo post but it’s such an incredibly stupid and thoughtless thing for JCPS to say that I can’t post it enough.
Just click on the Fox41 screenshot and you can see that I’m not pulling your leg:
Today, friends, we’re going to learn a little bit about the Kateba family’s country, Somalia, since they’ve learned a whole lot in a hurry about the States. The most important thing that they learned, and they sure learned it the hard way, is that the local school district warmly embraces black kids when they can be forcibly bused but drops ’em like hot potatoes when they’re getting bullied/choked/hanged/damn near killed.
These nice folks, the Katebas not JCPS, also learned that the States isn’t the super-safe and welcoming haven that they probably hoped it would be. Even worse, when you’re a relatively recent transplant from Africa (AFRICA!) who experiences something absolutely unimaginable, don’t expect the Louisville NAACP to help you out. CP = colored people? Hello??!! Yoo-hoo? Can these African immigrants get a little help over here? Looks like the Louisville NAACP has been a little too busy promoting forced busing and schmoozing with the goons at Van Hoose Palace. And more on that later.
So much for helping out a little brother.
Here’s the latest from the New York Times about Somalia:
No amount of outside firepower has brought the country to heel. Not thousands of American Marines in the early 1990s. Not the enormous United Nations mission that followed. Not the Ethiopian Army storming into Somalia in 2006. Not the current African Union peacekeepers, who are steadily wearing out their welcome.
Many Somalis have essentially given up on their government helping them. The country is constantly teetering on the edge of a full-blown famine.
Awil, the twelve-year-old pictured below, is featured in the NY Times story Children Carry Guns for U.S. Ally, Somalia.
Awil is different in two notable ways: he is shouldering a fully automatic, fully loaded Kalashnikov assault rifle; and he is working for a military that is substantially armed and financed by the United States.
You’ve heard about all of those pirates hijacking cruise ships off the coast of Africa? They’re Somali pirates.
Remember the four Americans who were killed on their yacht a few months ago? Somali pirates. Again.
Imagine escaping from a country like Somalia. You can’t, can you? It’s beyond comprehension to most of us. You get a snapshot of the country from the NY Times, the evening news or, ugh(!), from the movie Black Hawk Down.
Imagine getting a call from someone who says your child was found unconscious, hanging from a hook in the school bathroom – you need to come to Kosair! ASAP! I’ll bet you can’t imagine that, either. I sure can’t.
Imagine how JCPS would have tried to
lie wiggle their way out of this one if things had turned out differently, if the Kateba’s little boy couldn’t spill the beans on the bullies at Frayser Elementary. YES! Yes, we can all imagine that! Heck, they already tried to float a few whoppers. I was waiting for JCPS to blame aliens for the entire unfortunate situation. Anything is possible with those people.
This family got the heck out of a war-torn, lawless country but almost lost their son (allegedly!) at a Louisville elementary school. It’s really shocking how heartless JCPS has been toward this family. Mind-blowing.
I’m just sooo glad the Katebas reached the happiest ending possible. Their little guy is alive and well. Whew! I hope he is having a great spring break playing with friends, watching re-runs of SpongeBob and just being a living, breathing little boy.
Louisville attorney Teddy Gordon is going to uncover all kinds of craziness at Frayser Elementary. Don’t expect to read about it in the Crapola-Journal since they’ll probably be reluctant to make their buddies at Van Hoose Palace look like a bunch of paper-pushers who are in La-La Land.
Good stuff from WHAS-11: Attorney Teddy Gordon investigating case of boy found hanging from hook at school
