Frost: Attacks Against me in Sacramento Bee

A public health crisis is a disease, like COVID or AIDS.  Racism is a government policy, promoted for years by the Democrats, founders of the KKK, creators of Jim Crow and segregation laws.  Democrats support discrimination in hiring that is why they supported Prop. 16—while the voters opposed the racism of this measure.

“I do think that as a government, we can do better to serve communities of color. I also think we can do that by just being better at governing. To me, a crisis is something that comes at us fast and requires an aggressive and immediate solution. That is not what the resolution was asking for, though.”

If there are racist laws—repeal them.  If hiring practices are racist, fire those responsible.  If tax spending is used to promote racism, end it.  No need for a resolution—do the work.  Make the case and end the practice.  Until then stop primping for the TV cameras and stop making silly claims.

Attacks Against me in Sacramento Bee

Sacramento County Supervisor Sue Frost, 11/19/20  
Friends,

If you read the SacBee this morning, you may have read an editorial by columnist Marcos Bretón which criticized me for voting against a resolution declaring racism as a public health emergency.

If you subscribe to the Bee, click here to read it.

I do not deny that our country has a troubled past in which discrimination based on a person’s skin color was not only the norm but the law. However, I also acknowledge that we have grown past such flagrant discrimination as a society and a country, and we have advanced to a much better place.

I do think that as a government, we can do better to serve communities of color. I also think we can do that by just being better at governing. To me, a crisis is something that comes at us fast and requires an aggressive and immediate solution. That is not what the resolution was asking for, though.

The resolution asked for long-term work to address policies and programs in the County that create a disparity in service level provided to communities of color. The resolution also stated that addressing any disparities was a priority. Time and money would be dedicated to finding solutions. An important question naturally becomes, what money? The County is continuously making and planning more budget cuts, and we have no reserves to speak of. To me, the resolution was a thinly veiled attempt to yet again reduce funding to law enforcement. As many people are aware, reducing funding to law enforcement is not something I and most of my constituents support.

I think we have work to do as a County. I think that work should have started long before this week. We can sit around for hours declaring crises for various groups because we know disparities exist in many forms. But I think we have the ability, without shifting priorities and diverting resources, to identify and rectify any policy and program found to result in discrimination. I also believe we have a duty to do so. We do not need a resolution to tell us to do better. We just need to get to work.

Feel free to hit “reply” to this e-mail to let me know your thoughts.  I read and reply to every e-mail I receive.

Thank you for your time!
Sincerely,     Sue Frost
Sacramento County Supervisor, District 4

    I did not read the article written by Sue Frost in the Sacramento Bee because I dropped the paper about four years ago due to it’s extreme liberal slant. However, Ms Frost deserves all the respect available and many thanks for having the courage to write what she did concerning the resolution that racism is a public health crisis. How I wish she was my supervisor….It;s too bad our education system (indoctrination), unions and crooked politics have destroyed respect, law & order, family values and the truth that everyone is equal regardless of your ancestry, but you need to work to achieve. Unfortunately, in CA things are being given not on merit but “feel good emotions”.

    Marcos Breton is a horse’s ass.

  3. Yeah i think it’s interesting she nowhere said whatever it is it’s not a “health crisis” in any regular sense of the word.
