Four executives in the New York City Department of Education plan to sue the city, claiming they were demoted because they’re white.
According to the New York Post, the plaintiffs claim that Chancellor Richard Carranza has created “an environment which is hostile toward whites.” They also allege they were demoted in favor of people of color they consider to be less qualified.
“These decisions are being made because DOE leadership believes that skin color plays a role in how to get equity—that white people can’t convey the message,” an unidentified source familiar with the complaints told the Post.
