RUSH: The New York City Board of Education has an announcement. They are launching an investigation into an assistant principal at New Dorp High School in Staten Island.
Now, the suspect is Deborah Morse-Cunningham. Her alleged crime is that she posted an opinion piece on social media. Her post began: “What is privilege?”
Ms. Cunningham says she defines privilege as “wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job” or “wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance.”
She also classified privilege as “living in public subsidized housing” where there are no utility bills or property taxes to worry about.
Well, a so-called “concerned parent” saw the post and was triggered. She reported it to the Board of Education, claiming the post was “racist,” even though not one word in it mentioned race.
A spokeswoman for the New York City Department of Education defended the investigation of the post. She said, “The DOE stands against racism and schools must be safe and inclusive learning environments.”
Maybe one day New York’s Education Department will investigate the United States Constitution — specifically, the portion concerning free speech. Which happens to be the FIRST Amendment in the Bill of Rights. And they might one day investigate why so many children who attend their public schools come out completely uneducated.
It was actually a brilliant, brilliant post, folks.
