Alison Collins, the San Francisco school board vice president who refused to resign over anti-Asian tweets, is now reportedly suing the school district, the city of San Francisco, and a number of school board commissioners for “spiritual damage” and “emotional distress” because she met with discipline for her comments.
Collins, The Daily Wire reported in March, made a number of anti-Asian remarks on Twitter in 2016, calling Asian-Americans to “house n*****rs” for supporting President Donald Trump and accusing Asian Americans of adopting “white supremacist” thinking and portraying themselves as “model minorities” to earn the favor of white Californians.
“Where are the vocal Asians speaking up against Trump? Don’t Asian Americans know they are on his list as well? Do they think they won’t be deported? profiled? beaten? Being a house n****r is still being a n****r. You’re still considered “the help,” Collin’s tweeted in 2016, during another school board dispute.
Although a number of board members, including several Asian Americans, called on Collins to resign her seat, she refused, instead claiming that the tweets were “taken out of context” and misrepresented. She offered only a tepid apology, and the school board president took her side.
“A number of tweets and social media posts I made in 2016 have recently been highlighted. They have been taken out of context, both of that specific moment and the nuance of the conversation that took place,” Collins said in a post to Medium after the story broke.
