On May 10, Regal Media Group, LLC CEO Todd A. Smith appeared on “Isiah Factor Uncensored” to discuss the controversial picture of California teachers posing with a noose.
First grade teachers at a school that is 90 percent minority recently caused uproar after appearing in a picture with a noose. The teachers said that it was a chain and not a noose.
Smith said that there is no excuse for educators to not be educated on the significance of a noose to the African-American community.
The multimedia personality said that as a first grader, children should be playing with friends and figuring out what they want to be when they grown up. Six-year-olds should not be introduced to racism.
Regal Media Group, LLC’s CEO said that this episode shows why diversity is needed in the workplace. A more diverse staff could have prevented this controversial picture form being taken and/or disseminated.
Smith appeared with journalist/author ReShonda Tate Billingsley on his latest appearance on “Isiah Factor Uncensored,” which airs weekdays on Fox 26 in Houston.
