SUV•CES After all, supporting the failures of Wilson's tenure as superintendent was nothing new for school committee membersGeraldAnderson,JohnO'Bryant,JuanitaWadeor Jean McGuire. They had seen Wilson through every form of broken promise and missed goal, ever vigilant to their overriding concern that a black man should not fail as superintendent of the . The politics of this are apparent. The black school com­ mittee members must answer to the black community, and no doubt they wish to be re-elected. However, punctuating their zealous political needs with calls ofracism and "Selma, Selma, Selma" is taking it too far. Being self-serving and hypocritical is one thing, but a willingness to drive a wedge into the racial wounds of this city is quite another. In this instance, the four black members of the Boston School Committee seem un-repentant. They are clearly willing to jeopardize harmony, progress, and the re-energiz­ ing of the Boston Public Schools in favor of preserving a black role model, for black school children, from the black community.
