Maryland City Equity Official Says She Wants US to Burn to the Ground

Hannah Grossman, Fox News, March 13, 2024

The City of College Park, Maryland, hired a “racial equity” leader to spearhead its mission to eliminate systemic racism in its departments who has made statements defending violence and promoting the idea of a revolution against the United States.

Kayla Aliese Carter supports “Black liberation” through revolutionary means and said she is working with some activists to plan “how we will eat and live and grow after we burn it all down.” She was hired to be a “Racial Equity Officer” under Mayor Fazlul Kabir in 2022.

In this role, she oversees an entire team tasked with implementing a “racial equity” agenda across all city departments, affecting policies, practices, programs and budgets.

Carter was hired after Mayor Kabir signed into law “Resolution 20-R-16,” “which renounced systemic racism, declared support of Black lives, and called for the ongoing explicit and conscious confrontation of racism,” in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd in 2020.

The law mandated a systemic review – currently being performed by Carter – of “all current policies and programs” for evidence of bias and “disparate impact… for Black people.”

Carter believes it’s not enough to be not racist, one must be actively antiracist and working to “dismantle this s–t.” Some of her posts contain defenses for violence, asking, “Why do Black people always have to rationalize our violence and anger?

“Remember we are at war against colonialism,” read a post on Instagram from Feb. 2021. She captioned it with, “We can’t forget.”

The header for her X account says the following: “I can’t wait for society to collapse so MY ideology can rise from the ashes!”

“Today I cohosted and occupied space with dozens of people who have committed their lives, businesses, and money to Black liberation. On all days, every day, each day. Light workers. Already planning (BEEN PLANNING) for how we will eat and live and grow after we burn it all down,” she wrote in May 2020.


In 2021 she posted, “I hate when White children stare at me its literally terrifying so I just state back until they stop.”

“The police ARE the White supremacists,” she wrote in August 2020.

For her work in the city government, Carter makes $75,600 {snip}
