The white majority Little Rock Board of Directors voted Tuesday night in an executive session to recycle Ward 7 director B.J. Wyrick to be Vice Mayor in order to keep Ken Richardson from getting the position. Wyrick was Vice Mayor from January 2000 until December 2001.
The board has a tradition that a member with tenure that has not held the position of Vice Mayor is usually the one to be selected.
Neither Ken Richardson or Erma Hendrix have ever held that position. Both are black.
Capi Peck, who is white, is the newest member of the board has never held that position either.
This is a racist board, as Director Hendrix is fond of saying, and you can do some research and you will find that no proposed ordinance put forth by Hendrix or Richardson has ever gotten enough votes to pass. That is institutional racism and those old decrepit white directors, and Doris Wright (who most always votes with the whites) cannot offer any other explanation than institutional racism.
It's time to sign the petitions to recall these ancient assholes and get this city on moving forward.
We will go into each board member with great detail and give you some information about them you won't find anywhere else.
Juicy stuff is on the way. Grab some popcorn and get ready.
