(Vancouver, WA)  --  A Vancouver Public Schools board member is stepping down after posting a racist tweet in connection to protests over the police-involved death of George Floyd.  Mark Stoker resigned yesterday following the tweet suggesting that fire hoses be used against anyone damaging property during the protests.  Stoker was responding to a tweet by Seattle sports radio host Dave Mahler in which Mahler voiced disgust over property damage carried out during a protest on Saturday.  Stoker tweeted, quote, "Two words. Fire hoses!"  Fire hoses were famously used against black protesters during Civil Rights demonstrations in the 1960s.  Vancouver Public Schools Superintendent Steve Webb issued a statement yesterday saying racism in any form is wholly inconsistent with the school district's mission, values and beliefs.
