Library employee says Jim Crow reappears

Hinds County Supervisor Kenneth Stokes decided to bring the library scrum before the Board of Supervisors last week. The Hinds County Library System hired a new Executive Director this year but the hire drew no small amount of flack as an employee complained she was not given the chance to apply for the job. She vigorously presented her case to the board last week as you will see in the video below. Haven't kept up with this dispute so I don't know much about it. However, another employee (who was white) repeatedly accused the library system of bringing back Jim Crow segregation(15:10).

Does Kingfish even know what Jim Crow laws were? Has nothing to do with a job opening, duly posted, procedures followed and a hiring decision made.

Do you know how to read? How about your comprehension skills, got any?

Guessing Jim Crow's Ass didn't watch the video...

How can she work there for 23 years, be the second in charge and tell a story that can't be understood? Who disabled the cameras? What's up with the Hattiesburg mafia? She must be in charge of the fiction section. Thank goodness for Barnes and Noble and Books-a-Million.

5:15 must be one of the geniuses that didn't know there was a job opening.

I stop by Welty occasionally as it is convenient wifi for work. The employees are all lefty kooks, they push Obamacare like its dope and you never know when a bum might find your purty mouth interesting. First thing they need to do is raze that toilet. Security guard is nice though.

Typical Jackson bureaucracy bull crap. That's why the bus drivers are stricking, because the city takes advantage of its employees. Just so they can hire a relative of theirs. This is not right, but until the people of Jackson get tired of it, nothing is going to change. These ladies are obviously tired of it along with the bus drivers. Hopefully everyone else can jump on board to and get rid of the scum bag leaders and judges in Jackson.

I don't need to watch a video or read this bullshit to know the bitching woman did not even fill out an application. That's pretty much the first step in the job search process.

Name the damned library after her and move on. That's the extent of Stokes' expertise anyway.

The job was posted in May 2013. This is a non-issue except in the mind of race pimps like Supervisor Idiot Stokes.

It wouldn't surprise to find out that Moman did not meet the qualifications for the job.

Just drop her off of the edge of the Earth. It is flat isn't it?

The entire discussion is irrelevant since she did not apply for the job to begin with. Now if she can convince the EEOC (and she will try) that she was denied the opportunity to apply or that her application was rejected, She'll own the book mobile. Warm up the Bentley, Blackmon.

The simple fact is Ms Moman has supporting documentation. The job was bestowed and the opening closed before the LEGALLY ADVERTISED date. Ms Moman is in fact doggedly determined if anything.

Wonder if Kingfish could configure this blog system to simply, automatically insert this question every ten to twelve posts?:

"Do you have a reading comprehension skill deficit, dumbass?"

It's insulting to posters, yet we realize none of us rise to the mental level of The Kingfish and we all need help understanding. Be gentle with us though.

I believe that these two women are right in standing up like they did. There is proof that this Library System is wrong in there hiring practices. When you post for a job that gives an application deadline date of August 1, 2013 and you don't abide by that, you are WRONG. They even had the nerve to keep the posting up after they hired the new director. Some Board members for the Jackson/Hinds Library System have admitted that when they voted this new director in they were under the impression that she was to be the Interim Director, not the Executive Director. Yet, they were allowed to just get away with it. Ms. Moman is more than qualified for the job, and had she been given a fair shot, none of this mess would be going on right now. In my opinion, Ms. Ramirez, is right in screaming Jim Crow and calling these people out! Unfortunately, racism and unfair hiring practices seems to be an issue throughout this Library System. Someone needs to step in and deal with it. So, I say "AMEN" to these two women for having the courage to say the things that they said!

the individuals that made such ignorant statement putting the ladies down missed the whole problem. Let me try to explain the problem in their terminology which is plantation language. The wrinkled up old prune that has been serving as board president is from a time when minorities were seen not heard. What has happen is she as been serving so long in that position that she has forgotten that the name of the organization is Jackson Hinds Library System not Kuykendall Library System. Most of the seats on the board have been changed in a orderly fashion, but not Kuykendall . She uses her seat as a means to take revenge on individuals she as grief with, Ms Moman wasn't the first. She is just the only one that spoke up. What needs to happen is her seat needs to be replaced. The power of her seat is being misused. The president of the United States can only serve for two terms, this ensures that our country is a democracy and not a dictatorship. If the same practice was put into use at JHLS this would ensure that the board would vote and one individual would not become a dictator like Kuykendall. Her position and she has stated it is if it's not my way it's no way. It's time for the bent over prune with plantation views to go. The board needs a new president to ensure that it act like a democracy and the view would be what's best for the citizens of Hind county not what one person and her click decides helps them.

I believe that the real reason that the Jackson/Hinds Library, System Board of Trustees, didn't allow Ms. Moman to apply for the Executive Director position was out of retaliation due to that fact of a previous lawsuit that she had filed. That just shows how low and petty they really are. She has plenty of experience and not to be given a fair chance to go for the job,is wrong on so many levels. The Jackson/Hinds Library System is supposed to be an Equal Opportunity Employer,I can tell that is very untrue.

Baa-Baa Black Sheep said...

Yay! It is about time that someone stands up to the racist board members from that library system. That old bat,Kuykendall, has got to be one of the most hateful,revengeful and heartless individuals,I have ever seen in my life. All she had to do was stick to the deadline date,but NO...she had to be shady. I encourage someone to investigate this matter. Because once they start nosing around many other things will be brought to light.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
