Here is some edification on Southern politics in general and Hopkinsville Politics in specific. Just because you say you are a Democrat does not mean you actually are. These are (DINOS) Democrat IN NAME ONLY. A lot Hopkinsville democrats and even elected Democrats are just that. As far as the Females and Blacks turning on Selbe, when did standing up for ones rights equate to turning on someone? That is the smart and right thing to do. You know, it is the good old American principle of standing up for yourself, the principle the country was founded on, right to bears arm, blah, blah, blah. So either there are some making comments that are straight out of the backwoods ignorant or not American or both! Kristie stay after it, regardless of what the idiots say it is your right as a victim. Those Deliverance boys may feel a little different if it were their wife or daughter but then again for those that is probably one I the same.

So are you saying the white Democrats in Hopkinsville are DINO's, that is they are USING the black votes to keep their elected office? Say it ain't so!!! LOL

I don't see any "victims" the only victim are those that are proclaiming the victim status in order to gain personally. The very same video that Selbe showed was aired on PUBLIC television, NBC to be exact. Just like the Chicago black racist, cry you are a "victim", cry racism, cry we must be compensated, make demeaning racist Southern innuendoes and scream the all as loud as you can. Typical!

For ANY red-bloooded American to give ANY credence to the "victim" claims and these racist NAACP rants is complete lunacy!

@ Chicago. HCC & a lot of other schools not only need more "Black" & ethnic minority teachers in addition to the best qualified teachers. I am primarily talking about Diversity due to the nature of the conversation. Now that you have Gone There, let me school you. HCC or most of Ky cannot recruit the "best teachers" due to so called Funding, very high illiteracy rates, low educational attainment & LACK OF DIVERSITY. And the list goes on. If you look at RESEARCH culture is very important in public settings like schools & students feel accepted when they see a variety of people of that look like them & can relate to their cultural Experiences & other dynamics. CULTURE plays a part in how well a person learns & interprets things. Seriously, no Matter how WELL I COULD TEACH some of my students did not LISTEN TO ME SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE STEREOTYPES THEY HAD INGRAINED IN THEIR MINDS ABOUT BLACK WOMEN!
Lastly, 85% of HCC students have to start in developmental classes & many of my students did not know high school vocabulary words therefore often did not understand COLLEGIATE written directions & did not know to go look words up in the dictionary! And you can't compare Chicago to Hopkinsville. Cultural Awareness my brother is more than numbers it is understanding & appreciating people who are different than you! I respect all cultures & do business with many different types of people & LOVE IT!

@ Chicago you don't sound like you like blacks. What is your ethnicity? The Hopkinsville cultural climate is not normal. Blacks, other minorities, the poor & working class that are from there have been overlooked, treated in unequal, & tarnished by circumstances. When my Black colleague came to HCC in the early 90's all of the white students got up & left when she walked in the room. They could have cared less about her credentials & skills. What makes matters worse, some white racist faculty planted a cotton bush on the lawn to make fun of her. Do you know what that does to a persons psyche, self esteem, & everything! What you need is to learn EMPATHY because you clearly don't have a clue. Why don't you try to THRIVE in an HARSH RACIAL environment & see how far YOU get!

Kristie: Don't loose faith. What i mean is I'm a Redneck to the BONE and my wife is African American, She and I have been getting it done for near 20 years. Now about you helping will you give a call to Kentucky N era? Selbe NEEDS to go. There is no reason to let him get away with this or anything else he has done in the past it is time for his reckoning.

You are not a "survivor" you are an outright liar! You try to make everything to be about you, the so incredibly abused "black woman" Just quit being the "victim" and learn to stand on your own merits.
There were NO "white racist faculty (that) planted a cotton bush on the lawn to make fun of her"! Never happened! Mr. Duncan would certainly know the truth and he has the creditability to speak the truth.
The stupidity of the hiring process mandates that "black" people are hired over other qualified candidates in order to met quota's and be the "diversified" enough county to get federal dollars. The most racist and unfair mandates that the govt puts upon the American people.
For your information, I am AMERICAN. My ethnicity (not that it matters) is BI-RACIAL. I am part American Indian, part Jewish, and part Caucasian (with a bit of family suspect that I may have some black blood in me as well). But again, what does it matter? I am American.
Now, prove your assertion that a cotton bush was planted to make fun of a black teacher at HCC! You can't you are simply trying to build a hostile audiance using fabrications, typical of the black racist types.
BTW, in Chicago the black racist thugs were mercy-less to anyone that don't look like them, they beat, rape, rob and kill simply based upon skin color and ethinicity. Let's talk about what REALLY goes on in Chicago!! Life there for anyone other than a black person is brutal...we don't want that in Hopkinsville!

@ Chicago. You are not a good listener. I am not fabricating at all. You are the one who sounds hostile. You don't understand. You need some cultural diversity in your own life. I am far from racist & until you walk a mile in my shoes you just don't know. It's not about me. You are correct. It's not about YOU EITHER. You lack awareness CHICAGO THUG!

@Kristie, Using all caps don't intimidate me either. Certainly you don't think an American Indian is scared?
I am very aware of how some (not all) of the black Americans consider themselves to be entitled, that they are victims yet even today after slavery in America have been removed for generations (yet still goes on in Africa) Even my Jewish ancestors endured slavery and many more horrors yet I don't feel entitled or a victim. My American Indian ancestors were massacred by the thousands, enslaved and made to leave their homelands so black and white people alike can live on their lands, still I am not a victim.
Get over yourself is what I am saying, and stop bringing other black American down by demanding they too "be the victim". No American in 2013 deserves ANY special privileges, perks or handouts...NONE!

It is over, there is no differences in Americans today. We all bleed red, white and blue; so let's unite as One Nation Under God and stop playing the victim cards and screaming for "diversity". America is a melting pot and is about a "diverse" as it gets. The blood that flows through my veins likely has the DNA of many races and cultures, and likely so does yours.

@ Chicago. There is no sense of entitlement here. When you have been treated wrong you deserve justice! I don't care if you are not intimidated by me. Racism still exits across all cultures and that is the flat out Truth. And it's the truth that Blacks along other minority cultures have suffered a great deal in this country & are still being treated unfairly. That's the Truth! Obviously you haven't had a "racial experience" yet so you just don't know calling All blacks "thugs" shows your own ignorance. The new term for "melting pot" is "salad bowl" by the way. Do your research. Diversity is more than skin color, it's a thought process that you obviously don't get. However, I don't have to prove a point to you because I made Lemonade out of Lemons. If you can read, I said I was a Survivor not a victim. My circumstance don't Define who I am but have Developed me. I am very successful & proud of it & don't have time to conversate with close minded individuals like you. So unless you have some change in your thought process & become "enlightened" please spare me the excuses you make for Racial & Discriminatory Band Aid because you are obviously trying to Band Aid the situation.

And I am very proud of my ancestors & anybody who has endured Inhumane, Discriminatory, & Racial Injustice. My ancestors are very strong, resilient, smart & creative despite the history & obstacles we still face. If you don't "believe" me go look up Triple Jeopardy & you will find that black women are still the most underpaid, overlooked for promotions & not respected very often in the work place! We have to work harder & prove ourselves way more than our counterparts.

Is sad but true Kristie you got the double whammy, black and a woman. It's 2013 people to think we are allowing people like Selbe to thrive is something we should all be ashamed of. I feel sorry for all the administration that are being treated with anything other than the respect they deserve. @ Chicago you sound over the top angry maybe some counselling would help. just saying

Kristy,
What do you think should happen to faculty who aquires $60,000 worth of text books to review with no intention of using them in classes only to turn around and sell them to book buyers? No wonder textbooks are so high.
