At the May 9 school board meeting, Nicole Cole made a motion to place a 6-month censorship ban on public speaking against a citizen named Roy Searles. Cole addressed in public forum her son’s racial comments on a public Instagram video. Racial comments, whether in jest or not in jest, by a family member of a sitting school board member is in fact news especially when that school board member discusses it in public forum.
Here is Nicole Cole’s email to Roy Searles on this issue. Let’s address Cole’s email point by point.
“I can use this to go to the sheriff and report you harassing my minor son. I will report you distributing this as a “racist” video and attaching my minor son’s full name and slandering him. 1st. It does not show my son actually saying those words”
Searles has the freedom of speech to say whatever he wants to say. Cole’s son made a racist comment on video posted on Instagram. We saw the video. We have the video. Do we really need to post the video? Cole is lying and attacking free speech at the same time.
“2nd. For anyone to say “I hate white people” is an opinion and is in no way racist.“
Is Nicole Cole really this delusional? These are the words that Nasty Nicole’s son actually said on video. Let’s change “white” to any other color. Would it then be a racist comment? Hmmmm.
“3rd. For the 4th time you have attacked a minor in our school system and have subjected him to possible harassment and bullying in the school setting by doing this twice publicly at official school board meetings, via social media, and email. “
Pointing out facts is not an attack especially when Cole addresses it in public forum at a school board meeting. Cole is attacking free speech when she says that. People are responsible for their own individual actions. You do not get to place responsibility of the potential actions of others on the writer of an email or speaker during public comments. Saying that is typical leftist thinking that its everyone else’s fault.
“4th. Additionally you have harassed him by sharing this with school administration. He was pulled from class because you shared this.”
Claiming harassment by pointing out a video to school administration is really a stretch by Nasty Nicole. By her logic, no one is supposed to report anything for fear of harassment?
“Harassment means to repeatedly annoy or attack a person or group in such a way as to cause anxiety or fear for safety. “
The pot is calling the kettle black. Here are links of Nicole Cole harassing other school board members in public forum. Since the standard is about “feelings” instead of facts, we at the Spotsy Wire get anxiety anytime Cole speaks. Hey, we are using Cole’s definition here.

“My son has experienced anxiety and duress of being in a threatening environment in class with your daughter and in the school building with students and educators who might form a negative opinion of him because of your harassment. “
Below is an email exchange from Courtland High School showing that this is not true. The assistant principal in the email exchange verifies that Searles daughter has no discipline issues. Again, Nasty Nicole is lying.
“This video that was taken by a white male student who was not given permission to post my son on social media.”
Wow. Cole points out the race of the student that took the Instagram video. Why does pointing out the race of a student provide any value to your argument? Perhaps, Nasty Nicole is a racist. Furthermore, you do not need anyone’s permission to post a video on social media. In Virginia, recording only requires the consent of one party, not two parties.
