School Board VP Faces Recall For Saying Asian-Americans Use ‘White Supremacist Thinking’

San Francisco school board Vice President Alison Collins is facing calls for her resignation for a series of 2016 tweets. She compared successful Asian-Americans to white supremacists and used a racial slur.

Collins said in 2016 that she was seeking to combat “anti-black racism in the Asian community” by calling out Asian-Americans who use “white supremacist thinking to assimilate and ‘get ahead.’” According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Collins, who was elected in 2018, is now facing mounting pressure from civil rights leaders, parents, alumni, and political leaders to resign.

Despite her Twitter timeline now being filled with “anti-racism” rhetoric and claims supporting the Asian-American community, Collins used a racial slur to refer to some Asians in the 2016 thread. “Being a house n****r is still being a n****r. You’re still considered ‘the help,’” Collins tweeted. The tweets have not been deleted as of Saturday morning.

“Where are the vocal Asians speaking up against Trump? Don’t Asian Americans know they are on his list as well?” she tweeted in 2016. Collins, who is black, said many Asian students and teachers she knew wouldn’t “engage in critical race [conversations]” and buy into “model minority BS.”

In light of recent attacks against Asian-Americans, including a mass shooting in Georgia that left eight people dead, the Lowell Black Student Union removed Collins as a panelist at a Women in Leadership event slated for Thursday. “The Lowell Black Student Union stands with the Asian community and condemns all acts of anti-Asian hate,” the group said.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed did not go as far as to say Collins should resign but did condemn her comments. “Asian people in this country have long faced very real racism, including here in San Francisco, and you can’t just broad-brush their experience in a way that is so harmful and offensive,” she said.

The San Francisco school board tried earlier this year to rename 44 schools named after public figures, including former Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson.
