It’s been a rough few weeks for New York City schools.
First, word broke that a group of white female district executives plan to sue the district for Chancellor Richard Carranza’s alleged “pushing aside” of qualified whites for positions.
Then it was revealed the city makes use of critical race theory-based (and racially divisive) workshops such as “Dismantling Racism: A Workbook for Social Change” which teaches that objectivism, perfectionism, and a “sense of urgency” are hallmarks of that all-encompassing monstrosity known as white supremacy.
Another such program stated that “equity” means black students should be favored over others, even if they come from affluent backgrounds.
Now, according to the New York Post, a city school district advertised a teaching position which specifically excluded Caucasians.
“District 1 in NYC is looking to hire teachers of color for the 2019-2020 school year,” the ad read, which was posted on Indeed.com but taken down after approximately 24 hours. The posting was part of an invite to a May 14 job fair which included the statement “We are committed to diversifying our teaching staff to better serve the diverse populations we serve.”
Despite the city DOE’s war against the alleged evils of “whiteness,” such job postings are illegal.
According to the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, it is “illegal for an employer to publish a job advertisement that shows a preference for or discourages someone from applying for a job” due to race, color, religion, sex or other characteristics. …
“This job posting is a continuation of fighting discrimination with more discrimination and underscores our clients’ allegations, namely, that they were targeted for demotion in responsibility and role on the basis of their race and gender,” said lawyer Davida Perry, who represents the plaintiffs in that case.
A DOE spokesman said the ad “was not authorized” and that officials “are investigating to determine follow up action.”
“This was a mistake by one school and it shouldn’t have happened,” said spokesman Doug Cohen, adding that the job fair was “open to all candidates.” …
Manhattan employment lawyer David Gottlieb said the ad “creates a very strong inference that they are favoring a particular racial group in the hiring process.”
Attorney Michael O’Neill added that the ad “without a doubt” violates NYC’s Human Rights Law.
