Teachers union, fired teachers sue Chicago for racial discrimination

DC

The Chicago Teachers Union is supporting three recently fired black teachers who are suing the city for racial discrimination.

Donald Garrett Jr., Robert Green and Vivionell Brown Jr. lost their jobs because of the Chicago Board of Education’s turnaround program, which replaces most of the administrative and teaching staff at low-performing schools.

These turnarounds tend to hit schools with above-average numbers of black faculty members, and they have contributed to a 10-percent reduction in black teachers in the past decade.

Along with the three teachers, the union filed suit against Chicago Public Schools on Wednesday. Even facially non-discriminatory employment policies can violate civil rights laws if they disproportionately affect specific races in practice.

Robin Potter, an attorney for CTU, said in a statement that the city’s policies run afoul of those laws by primarily impacting black faculty and staff.

    Its always racial. It never ends.
    Rob a store & get shot, its not because you were robbing a store, its because you’re black.
    To stupid to teach kids to read a first grader book at 15, then its racist.
    Can’t get a job because of felonies & violent conduct, its racist.
    I just don’t give a shit about you blacks any more…oh, call me racist too

    This is bull. However, I won’t disagree that blacks are very adept at racism, so therefore see it in everything.

    All Chicago teachers that were the most incompetent were fired.

    All fired Chicago teachers were black.

    Therefore, you’re a racist.

    (I don’t think that is the correct conclusion)

    David Duke has thrown his support behind rehiring these incompetent teachers. “As long as they are confined to black classrooms I couldn’t be happier” he stated with that lovable grin.
