New NYC schools chancellor ‘marginalized’ older white women: suit

Richard Carranza leaves in the middle of a crisis — and NYC is better off without him

Good riddance to the worst schools chancellor in NYC history

‘Woke’ school rage
The discriminatory lawsuits reported by the Sunday Post should serve as just the starting point for what deserves to be the largest class-action suit in New York’s history (“ ‘Black’ balled,” Feb. 25).

Every taxpayer (especially the parents of students) who has ever ponied up a dime to support this pathetic, woke-based farce masquerading as a “Department of Education” should not only be refunded in full but be given damage compensation.

The city has failed spectacularly in providing even a trace of a basic education to the vast majority of its students. Discipline in the classroom? “Racist.” Precision and accuracy in writing? “White supremacy.” Standards for excellence? “A colonialist construction.”

One needs look no further than the edicts and aspirations of former Schools Chancellor Richard Carranza and his imbecile boss to see what’s been wrought upon the city’s children and those who sincerely attempt to teach them. Disgraceful.

Cop attack plea
Our new and enlightened federal administration has offered Urooj Rahman and Colinford Mattis a plea deal (“Van-bombing plea offer,” Feb. 23).

These two are lawyers, officers of the court, and they threw a Molotov cocktail into a police van. Is that not a worse offense than dressing like a Viking and storming the Capitol?

If anyone deserves a long stretch, these two misanthropes do. Left-wing lawyers are not automatically anointed as misguided or innocent. These are violent criminals.

Don’t rely on ‘czar’
So now this hapless moron of a mayor wants to appoint a “recovery czar” to bring the city’s businesses back to life (“Now He Wants To Save City Biz,” Feb. 23).

Once again, too little and very late. Asked why it took so long, Mayor de Blasio cited emergency issues that had to be dealt with first. Since street crime is out of control, the subways are treacherous to set foot in and the vaccine rollout has been a mess, what were the other emergencies he had to take care of?

Of course, the process will contain racial equity aspects that will result in some businesses remaining closed forever. All small businesses need to be helped, not just the ones he deems more important.

No Capitol justice
I am really glad that Miranda Devine is paying attention to the people who stormed the Capitol building on Jan. 6 (“Left has a ‘law & order’ double standard,” Feb. 22).

Yes, it was wrong to do this, but how interesting that an anti-Trump activist who encouraged people to riot and trespassed himself was not only set free without bail but also given $75,000 from CNN for the footage. That is quite a payday.

Attorney General-designate Merrick Garland and President Biden say they will protect us from “white supremacists.” That will come as a great relief to the real terrorists. We are now living in a country where there is no equal protection under the law.

Fauci’s follies
Dr. Anthony Fauci says we now need to wear two masks (“Masking may go into 2022,” Feb. 23).

He can’t decide whether grandparents who are vaccinated can visit their grandchildren, and says Americans will be wearing masks until 2022.

Everybody wanted to hear his opinion, even though his opinions keep changing. The damage that following his advice has done is mind-boggling.
