Bigotry And Anti-Semitism At The NYC DOE

Something has been weighing on my mind since November. I don't know what to do, or what advice to give. But what I am about to share, it is 100% accurate. The dialogue I am presenting is verbatim. The source is above reproach. But what it does is show the true nature of the type of higher ups we are getting in the NYC DOE.

One reason I am sharing it is because of all this talk with ending seniority, or last in, first out.

An unidentified non higher up: My grandfather lived in Harlem when he first came to this country in 1920.

Higher up: Did he own the building?

An unidentified non higher up: He came right off the boat, of course he didn't own the building.

Higher up: Oh, did he own his apartment?

An unidentified non higher up: This was 1920, there was no such things as co-ops back then.

Higher up: You mean he wasn't rich?

An unidentified non higher up: Nope.

Higher up: Really? I thought all Jews was rich.

Now I don't know if this can be considered anti-Semitic, but at the very least it is bigoted. No one else was around to witness the conversation, so it is a he said, she said thing. But I do not doubt for one second that this conversation did not take place.

E4E, stop and think and be careful what you wish for. It just might come true.

When a boy wanted to throw pennies at me, my AP said that the comment wasn't anti-semitic. There is a major problem around that needs to be addressed.
