According to a report from WHBQ, a Collierville, Tennessee priest is under fire for banning a black housekeeper in the employ of the diocese from entering his church-provided home because he claims his dog is racist.

In an interview with housekeeper LaShundra Allen, who asked that her face not be shown, she explained that she was told not to enter the home of Rev. Jacek Kowal, a pastor at the Catholic Church of the Incarnation while she was being trained to replace the current housekeeper.

“I was just supposed to clean the church and I was supposed to go to the pastor’s house and clean as well,” Allen explained. “They were just like, ‘Well, I’m not really sure how to say this,’ kind of like in a joking way, ‘But Father Jacek doesn’t want black people cleaning the house because his dog is racist.'”

According to Allen, she had never met the priest and said that his secretary specifically told her, “I’m sorry, we are not trying to be rude, but the dog doesn’t like black people.”

According to the report, a letter was sent to the diocese, explaining, “Father Jacek knew that an African American woman was about to clean his home. He made no effort to come meet Ms. Allen. He made no effort to correct any statement about his dog being a ‘racist.'”

“Two church office employees then reiterated that Father Jacek ‘did not want (Ms. Allen) there’ and that they needed to leave. Both Ms. Allen and Ms. Weaver were shocked, humiliated, and felt severely disrespected by this treatment and the statements,” the letter added.

In a statement, the priest insisted he is not a racist saying, “I wholeheartedly believe all forms of discrimination… are sinful and wrong,” before adding that his dog, a German Shepherd, once had a “bad experience with a stranger who happened to be African American.”

Former FBI agent Asha Rangappa explained that the recent revelations that President Donald Trump made a promise to a foreign leader that made an intelligence official uncomfortable enough to declare themselves a whistleblower.

While dyslexia has been mentioned now and then as one of the reasons Donald Trump is so ignorant of what it takes to govern in a free society, I want to explore it as foundational to his inability to learn and grow while in office—and also as a way to link disparate troubling elements in his makeup.
