'HONEST OPINION'

TX Official Wants ‘Those Blacks Off the School Board’

Texas Councilwoman Connie Trube doesn’t think she should have to resign for saying she wants to get “those blacks off the school board” because that’s just her “honest opinion.” Trube was caught on tape blaming one local school communities problem’s on the school board’s black members. “She really turned black,” Trube is heard saying. “She got on the school board with the rest of the blacks and they all just ganged up and that’s why the school system has gone to hell.” When confronted by residents at a public meeting, where Trube was asked to resign, she defended herself. “What is on the tape is nothing more than me stating my honest opinion and I don’t back down from that,” she said.
