Middle School Principal Cancels Student Election BECAUSE TOO MANY WHITE KIDS WON

Guest post by Aleistar

A middle school principal in San Francisco shocked her local community by suspending student council election results because she felt the winners lacked diversity and were too white.

The San Francisco Gate reported:

S.F. principal delays vote results, saying winners aren’t diverse

When San Francisco middle school principal Lena Van Haren saw which kids on her campus had been elected to the student council, she was disturbed at the lack of diversity among the winners. There were no Latino or black candidates chosen for the top four spots.

Her concern for a representative student government, given the preponderance of students of color at Everett Middle School in the Mission District, may have been understandable. What she did about it, however, swiftly raised a different kind of alarm.

Van Haren decided to withhold the results of the Oct. 9 election for more than a week, saying the school community needed to figure out how to have a more representative government.

“This is complex, but as a parent and a principal, I truly believe it behooves us to be thoughtful about our next steps here so that we can have a diverse student council that is truly representative of all voices at Everett,” she told parents in an e-mail Thursday.

The response was immediate and at times vehement. Parents complained; students were angry. It appeared, some parents argued, that diversity was trumping democracy.

What’s wrong with white candidates? All of the Democrats running for president are white.

    Affirmative Action….even happens in our middle schools. Isn’t that how we got our last president? And look how well that’s worked out for us. But don’t look now, it seems there are some who are trying to do it all over again.

    She’s probably upset at the lack of transgender representation in the 7th grade officers. She’s a poster girl for liberal asshattery. Great lesson there Ms Van Haren. Hope they remember this when you start pumping up Cuba and Venezuela and their election process. You’re mentality is one reason we’re becoming a banana republic.


    Racist racist racist. She’s white and the principle: where’s her diversity the racist bitch? Go kill yourself you stupid hag!!!

  • FRwL

    No it wasn’t diversity that was trumping democracy. It is neo-nazi American left that is trumping democracy.

    Down with the totalitarians.

  • mumzieistired

    Libs gotta control. It’s in their DNA.

  • HARP2

    You’re too stupid to be a principal…go punch yourself in the mouth.

  • EJFrench

    And she doesn’t even see how racist she is. If you don’t see how this leads to mass murder in the scale of Pol Pot, Lenin, and Mao, you are simply stupid or willfully ignorant.

  • ipasaregood

    Just looking at her picture it doesn’t seem that she fits the liberal definition of diverse either and should resign immediately.

  • HARP2

    I took my Biology exam last Friday. I was asked to name two things commonly found in cells. Apparently “Blacks” and “Mexicans” were NOT the correct answers.

    God damn Democrat females. God damn Democrat teacher-shit. I don’t even consider them human beings anymore. May they die like maggots.

  • WhatDifferenceDoesItMake2016

    Minority students elected the council but this white liberal dunce thinks she knows what’s bet for them. Typical liberal who thinks minorities are too stupid to make intelligent decisions. Fire this racist principal.

  • Carolingian

    Diversity is CODE word for ANTI WHITE

  • sterling bell

    I agree. None of these white people ever risk anything to advance “diversity”. It’s all done at others’ expense.

  • Xavier

    Who does she think she is, Obama?

  • Dusty Thompson

    Not every Democrat was a KuKluxKlan member, but every KuKluxKlan member was a democrat.

  • Fried Chicken

    Students should start calling her a racist. Smack her down hard core.

  • Jason

    We need to begin firing all of these racists who are teaching racism.

  • big bird

    kids don’t see color, only popularity, it’s screwed up malcontents like this rag that push diversity down everyone else’s throat due to her white guilt, would you rather have the best heart surgeon or one that got in on affirmative action?

  • Last month i managed to pull my first five figure paycheck ever!!! I’ve been working for this company online for 2 years now and i never been happier… They are paying me $95/per hour and the best thing is cause i am not that tech-savy, they only asked for basic understading of internet and basic typing skill… It’s been an amazing experience working with them and i wanted to share this with you, because they are looking for new people to join their team now and i highly recommend to everyone to apply… Visit my blog to learn more about this opportunity



  • FedUpWithWelfareStates

    Lena Van Haren, needs to take a stroll along Pier 14 in the Embarcadero district, right after Illegal Alien Criminal release day…

  • hal

    She missed one catagory in her desire to have non white leaders, Illegal alien migrants. And she is obviously unfit to teach. The vote was democratic, and the non whites obviously knew they were unfit and unqualified, and were slackers who run from responsibility but would be the first to claim racism was why they were not picked. Minority kids, excluding Asians are well trained by their parent(s) on how to use race to manipulate their way thru life.

  • will jones

    Suppose all blacks or Hispanics were elected, would she have said that was wrong? When those in position of power ignore the people’s choice then freedom is not only ignored, it no longer exists.

  • Brett Favre

    more racism by the tolerant left… so much for content of character over skin color.

  • Goober_Pyle

    What an idiot.

  • Barbie Dahl

    The kids who won were white, Asian and Mixed-Race. Sounds diverse to me.

  • O’Brien’s Math Facts

    When you wonder how Obama got elected to a second term, think of two things: This whacked out, white guilt ridden Principal and Mitt Romney.

  • Kenneth G Maiden

    This is typical Lefty Progressive DemoCrud crap. Kalifornia is awash with folks like her that sadly vote. These coastal elites have destroyed freedom and liberty in this poorly run crap hole. AKA N Korea lite.

  • Finncrisp

    The Democratic party leadership is too white – will they restructure according to quotas? Their policy is to keep minorities on the dole and dependent.

  • roccolore

    Just like when Democrats throw out the results of certain exams because not enough minorities passed.

  • Pegon Zellschmidt

    A parent should suggest that she relinquish her job to a colored minority.

  • Suelinn

    So how did a ” preponderance of students of color” elect an all white student council? Perhaps because that is who they wanted on student council for reasons irrespective of skin color. But as usual skin color trumps everything else in liberal land.

  • maudieNmandeville

    She looks like a tranny.

  • johnfarmingdale

    She saved the children (long pause) from the children.

  • JY1

    “Suppose all blacks or Hispanics were elected…”

    She would have congratulated herself for inspiring her students to be so enlightened.

  • Bubba Gump

    So now we are implementing martial law in middle schools? And who said it could never happen in America.

  • Bubba Gump

    Oh now, just send her a cork and book of matches. She could fix that problem in a jiff.

  • Red West

    Yeah… that sums it up. Stupid minorities can’t be trusted to vote for themselves… went out and elected a bunch of whities. CLEARLY they need some public official to step and explain to them what they really meant to do and help them adjust their votes accordingly.

    Yeah… and we’re the racists.

  • JY1

    This could have been the fault of the corrupt and racist criminal justice system.

    Were any (or a large number) of the middle school students (ages 11-14) precluded from running for office due to felony convictions or outstanding warrants?

    Surely there was at least one young, aspiring community activist among the children who had not yet been caught breaking the law…

  • Don Keller

    Yet another manifestation of the affirmative action experiment at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue…

  • JY1

    They were too young and had not yet been taught by the system to hate their classmates based on mythical skin color privilege.

  • dave0987

    The diversity insanity continues.

  • guessed

    Ever notice it’s the young White women with Mandingo fantasies who push this cr*p the hardest? Any bets on how soon this one sleeps with a “sturdy” 12 year old student?

    Oh well, it’s SF anyway. Probably pretty hard for her to get laid anyway, at least by a genetic male…

  • guessed

    “Amendment XIV

    Section 1.

    All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

    Someone wanna point out to Principal Problem here that the “equal protection” thing means White people too? And the kids don’t forfeit their rights (yet) just because they walk through the schoolhouse door…

  • guessed

    They still are. They just wear judicial robes instead of white ones…

  • nodhimmi

    please anyone here with young children DO NOT send them to public schools!

  • Patty

    she is mental. she has no business doing this to our children. they are just kids, stop using brainwashing on them, yours. you really need to be suspended or fired. America doesn’t work like this. we vote in elections and count the votes and then announce the winner. period.

    Obama became president but because we didn’t like him we didn’t get to vote until the opposition won. You are a crazy lady, you need to check into a hospital.

  • guessed

    “Suppose all blacks or Hispanics were elected…”
    Don’t know about student council elections, but in COUNTRIES where election results end up with all Blacks or all Hispanics running there actual goverments, things generally don’t end well; that’s why they start breaking into countries that DON’T have all Black or all Hispanic governments…

  • guessed

    Maybe, but she’d be perfecty safe in the Castro district, from rape anyway…

  • america is freedom

    You know, this is the 5 stages of religious persecution, but I read a book by two LGBT heroes, “After The Ball” and they stated that they were going to use the methods of the activist black movement to eliminate conservative Christians from the general populace.
    It is exactly the same method and by the way, if anybody wants to read some history you OUGHT to have read in school, check out what Mugawbe did to Zimbabwe to get blacks to massacre whites there..
    And for good measure, check out Indonesia and what happened to East TImor in 1999.
    Folks, all they have to do is keep the kids form reading real history and feed them the same stuff that made socialist marxist converts in the 20th century. They know now what they do not know. A blog by Monsignor CHarles Pope: Brilliant. http://blog.adw.org/2014/09/the-five-stages-of-religious-persecution/

  • america is freedom

    It is exactly the same method, I meant to say, that they are using against whites. ANd yes, the irony is that all the whites who lead the stampede think somehow they’ll be exempt from the hate they fomented.

  • Look

    From the photo, its obvious that this ignorant San Francisco liberal principal is just ‘too white’, she needs to quit her job for the good of social justice.

  • rafdelatorre

    I think it was because your answer was incomplete. I would have added muslims.

  • begroeg

    Another stupid white(I hate my race) liberal. Maybe someone should ask her to give her job up for a black or Mexican women. What a dumb a**!

  • kjane

    Just another liberal pissing on Dr King’s Dream.


    Why don’t YOU resign so perhaps your role will be filled by a male, who are woefully underrepresented in education.

  • matrix

    Quarantine this lady before her Liberal White Guilt can infect anyone else. Never mind, this is San Francisco.

  • J K Brown

    White woman arbitrarily negates votes of diverse minorities when she dislikes the electorally chosen result.

    Yep, she’s a Democrat…

  • Perhaps we can cancel elections if too many illegals vote?

  • jukin

    Lenin is smiling and whole heartedly agrees with this principal.

  • PhillyJohn

    Seems any lefty with Van as part of their last name is genetically an a-hole.

  • WKRP

    Dear Lena Van Haren.

    Please explain how you got the job as school principal instead of a minority applicant.

  • ratedrnightwing

    Nuke san francisco from orbit.

    It’s the only way to be sure.

  • E. Newton

    Millions of Gyno-americans, just like Lena Van Haren placed Barack Obama in office. Twice.

  • Thom Kirby

    lol, you are so wrong….. funny, but wrong!

  • Mike in Illinois

    Democrats hate the democratic vote anytime the vote doesn’t turn out the way they command it to turn out. Nothing new here.

    The funniest art is, this ogre had no thought that doing this would get serious attention. she thought she could just suspend election results and generate local support for a mulligan.

    Why didn’t she do what normal democrats do – Ignore the vote count, and just add votes until she got the results she wanted?

    Oh wait – 110 percent voter turnout in a school wouldn’t get the pass it got in a presidential election!

    What really happened here is some truth out of the mouths of babes. Those kids don’t CARE about skin color. They just proved it. In spades! And THAT is something white guilt liberal Democrats just cannot have! That has to be “fixed”.

    I wonder if this lady knows how much damage she just did to the DEMOCRAT establishment?

  • Aggie95

    Cool…. Affrimitive action elections…. I see she’s white…. I think in the intrest of diversity she should give up her job

  • Aggie95


  • Vance Shearer

    So basically she says “White Privilege” allowed them to win. Anytime a lib says “teachable moment” they mean “resistance is futile”.

  • OwlCreekObserver

    Basically, it’s her opinion that only blacks can represent blacks, only Hispanics can represent Hispanics and only whites can represent whites. This would seem to confirm that liberalism actually is a mental disorder.

  • LABigDave

    Boy, I’m so grateful I don’t live in the land of fruits and nuts!

    Massive effort by YT’s to turn a White Country into a non White Country..

  • Circa53

    mike king was a black nationalist and communist.

  • Curmudgeon

    The solution is simple, really. Just create 82 student council organizations to represent every possible group within this school with the exception of white Christian males. Cis-males should just be expelled for being too normal.

  • Avspatti

    Mexican isn’t a race.

  • gram56

    Maybe she should resign to make way for someone who isn’t white and blonde and privileged.

  • Curmudgeon

    She was born an Asian male.

  • Grand2833

    It is always the most popular kids that get elected in any school. It’s really a popularity contest and no one ascribes any real significance to it. These kids don’t run the school or anything else. This principle is doing the politically correct thing but it’s not the right thing. She’s trying to teach “social justice” politics where each race/group gets it’s share of the political pie/goodies. In her social utopia every race/group is represented equally and everything is, no doubt, distributed equally regardless of effort or contribution.

  • RedSoloCup

    Only in the 10th rate cesspool known as Kalifornia/San Fransicko.

    No doubt the principal is a die-hard follower of this clown. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2dca3524b5bbedda2cbb01fc4b731e3bee5ec9be864c60c13de188c52030cee0.jpg

    fire the racist she has no place being anywhere near children. could you imagine the furor if a black student in a predominantly white school ran for the student government and won and the principal void the results. there would be wall to wall coverage in the democrat party-media complex. this story will be ignored by the national complex.
