Kimberly Johnson vs. JCPS Reaches Settlement

Unfortunately, Dr. Kimberly Johnson ‘s trial against Jefferson County Public Schools will never be heard in court. The evening before her case was set to go to trial, Dr. Johnson’s lawyer convinced her to accept the settlement that was being offered by JCPS. But that doesn’t mean her story can’t be made public. We have obtained court documents, witness testimonies and other examples of #PatternsAndPractices of discrimination, retaliation and cover-ups. We are in the process of trying to organize many them on this website. Dr. Pollio has had every opportunity to address the problems we identify. He reports to the JCPS School Board.

Patterns and Practices

Black NFL Coach Brian Flores recently announced a similar lawsuit against the NFL for discrimination in hiring and promotion practices. One of the patterns identified in his lawsuit is the “glass cliff.” In addition to this practice, we have identified a few others in JCPS, such as Black Barriers, Impossible Competing Tasks, Manufactured Evidence, and more. Do you recognize any of these common tools that have been utilized to keep the “problem” educator of colour in her place?

TESLA Awards $137 Million To Ex-Worker for Racism

This was after they awarded $1 Million to another employee. Like JCPS, Tesla rarely faces significant damages or takes deep corrective action because they are usually able to settle disputes before they get to trial. A pending class-action lawsuit in Alameda County in California — Vaughn v. Tesla Inc. — also alleges that Tesla is rife with racist discrimination and harassment.

Brian Flores sues NFL, three teams as former Miami Dolphins coach alleges racism in hiring practices

Feb. 2, 2022

Brian Flores has sued the NFL and three teams -- the DolphinsBroncos and Giants -- alleging discrimination regarding his interview processes with Denver and New York and his firing last month by Miami.

The 58-page lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court Tuesday and seeks class-action status.

Flores alleges he was "treated with disdain and held out as someone who was noncompliant and difficult to work with."

"God has gifted me with a special talent to coach the game of football, but the need for change is bigger than my personal goals," Flores said in a statement put out by the Wigdor firm. "In making the decision to file the class action complaint today, I understand that I may be risking coaching the game that I love and that has done so much for my family and me. My sincere hope is that by standing up against systemic racism in the NFL, others will join me to ensure that positive change is made for generations to come."
