‘White supremacy cul­ture’ at the DPH

The scan­dals just keep pil­ing up for Tall De­val — now the ad­min­is­tra­tion of Gov. Char­lie Baker stands ac­cused pub­licly of fos­ter­ing a “white supremacy cul­ture” in state gov­ern­ment.

The ac­cuser? The gov­er­nor’s own ad­min­is­tra­tion.

It’s all right there on the state’s web­site — or was, un­til I in­quired about it Fri­day. The ac­cu­sa­tion of “white supremacy” in the Baker ad­min­is­tra­tion is in­cluded in a job post­ing by the very eth­i­cal De­part­ment of Pub­lic Health, which is of course the long­time em­ployer of crooked jail­bird state chemists Sonja Farak and An­nie Dookhan.

The DPH has rail­roaded more peo­ple into pri­son on fab­ri­cated ev­i­dence than the Bos­ton of­fice of the FBI — by a fac­tor of at least 10,000. Just read the de­ci­sion by the Supreme Ju­di­cial Court last week — and de­fense lawyers are still try­ing to throw out an­other 11,000 fraud­u­lent DPH-engi­neered drug con­vic­tions.

Any­way, the DPH just listed an open­ing for a newly cre­ated po­si­tion — “racial eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor.”

The fi­nal item in the “De­tailed State­ment of Du­ties and Re­spon­si­bil­i­ties”:

“Sup­port ef­forts to un­der­stand the im­pact of white supremacy cul­ture on the DPH work­place and iden­tify and im­ple­ment strate­gies to counter this cul­ture.”

You don’t say, Tall De­val? You’ve been gov­er­nor for four years now, and yet you’ve done noth­ing about this “white supremacy cul­ture.” I must in­form Pres­i­dent Trump and Kanye West of th­ese shock­ing al­le­ga­tions … by your own ad­min­is­tra­tion!

Need­less to say, I wanted to know more about this “white supremacy cul­ture” at the DPH. So I reached out to the som­nam­bu­lant hacks at the DPH.

Fool­ish me, I al­ways thought the big­gest prob­lem at the DPH was fram­ing all those thou­sands of peo­ple with fake drug ev­i­dence –– like, for in­stance, the guy who went to pri­son for 18 months sell­ing a cashew to an un­der­cover cop, which the crooked DPH an­a­lyzed as a rock of crack co­caine.

At 6:17 Fri­day night, a $91,000-a-year DPH hack and former Glo­bie named Ann Scales re­sponded to my in­quiry about the charges by the Baker ad­min­is­tra­tion of en­demic racism in the Baker ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“That phrase should not have been used in the con­text of that job de­scrip­tion and the post­ing has since been up­dated.”

Up­dated in­deed. In other words, they deleted it. It had been up there since Septem­ber, and none of th­ese worth­less Baker hacks even no­ticed that they’d in­dicted them­selves in a pub­lic job post­ing.

Do you know what the tough­est IT job in state gov­ern­ment is — “up­dater.” Just Thurs­day, the up­dat­ing de­part­ment had to “up­date” the list of the gov­er­nor’s may­oral en­dorse­ments, to up­date the in­dicted Fall River mayor into the deleted file.

Many ques­tions about the DPH re­main, how­ever. For in­stance, what ex­actly is the dif­fer­ence at the DPH be­tween the “racial eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor” (which will pay be­tween $55,000 and $78,000) and the al­ready ex­ist­ing job of “di­ver­sity of­fi­cer,” held by one Na­homi Carlisle for $69,231 a year.

Does the di­ver­sity of­fi­cer out­rank the racial eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor, or vice versa?

One thing, how­ever, I am sure of — when the first bl­iz­zard strikes next win­ter, both the di­ver­sity of­fi­cer and the racial eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor will be deemed … nonessen­tial, er, non­emer­gency, and told to take the day off.

But hey, you can fight the white supremacy cul­ture from home, right?

In the mean­time, I’m go­ing to take a closer look at the state web­site’s other job post­ings. Who knows what else is out there?

Is it pos­si­ble that Mass­port is post­ing for a NonGrop­ing Air­line Eq­uity Co­or­di­na­tor, to as­cer­tain whether any ac­cused groper at Lo­gan air­port is re­lated to a pow­er­ful state politi­cian be­fore de­cid­ing how quickly the case can be broomed?

Do the state po­lice now have an Em­bez­zling Eq­uity Co­or­di­na­tor, to tell the new re­cruits the MSP motto — “To Pro­tect and Steal” — that’s a joke, guys. OK? A joke! You’re not to sup­posed to take it lit­er­ally.

Is the state Se­nate go­ing to hire a date-rape-drug eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor – se­na­tors, your boy toys are not sup­posed to drug other solons, or any­body else for that mat­ter, and then take pho­tos of them passed out and naked to send all around Bea­con Hill. One fi­nal thought: What would be Tall De­val’s re­ac­tion if Pres­i­dent Trump’s ad­min­is­tra­tion were to pub­licly ad­mit to fos­ter­ing a “white supremacy cul­ture”?

I’m guess­ing Tall De­val would be very … dis­ap­pointed.


HELP WANTED: The De­part­ment of Pub­lic Health, 250 Wash­ing­ton St., Bos­ton, put out an ad to hire a racial eq­uity co­or­di­na­tor to help change the cul­ture.
