A San Francisco school board member refuses to resign after her old tweets resurfaced calling Asian Americans "house ni**ers" who "embrace white supremacist thinking" to get ahead.
School board Vice President Alison Collins is under fire for her 2016 tweets attacking Asian Americans. On Sunday, 19 school administrators called for Collins to resign, but she refused.
In a series of tweets from 2016, Collins asked her Twitter followers to send her examples of anti-Black racism or bullying by Asian students to combat anti-Black racism.
"I'm looking to combat anti-black racism in the Asian community at my daughters' mostly Asian Am school," she tweeted.
In a follow-up tweet she wrote, "Many Asian Ss and Ts I know won't engage in critical race convos unless they see how they are impacted by white supremacy."
In another tweet she noted that Asians "use white supremacist thinking to assimilate and 'get ahead'."
"Where are the vocal Asians speaking up against Trump? Don't Asian Americans know they are on his list as well?"
School officials called for Collins to resign her position. They said Collins' tweets "perpetuate gross and harmful stereotypes and leave no room for nuance or potential misunderstanding".
Multiple news media outlets referred to Collins's race as "Black" and they point to Collins as an example of anti-Asian racism in the Black community.
