Mother accuses LA teacher’s union of ‘racial profiling’ after speaking out on closures Fox News.
The racially charged fight over Los Angeles school closings took an ugly turn when an outspoken pro-opening mom said she got an email from the teachers union asking what her ethnicity is — after the union head claimed reopening pleas are largely driven by “white and Middle Eastern parents.”
Cecily Myart-Cruz, head of UTLA, this week slammed a reopening plan proposed Monday and argued that it was being driven largely by ‘white wealthy parents’
In January she posted to Facebook that union members have been ‘stalked on social media by wealthy white and Middle Eastern parents’ about reopenings
Qudrat, whose son is in seventh grade, said: ‘I felt very targeted…they’re trying to say that if you are in favor the kids coming back to school, you’re racist’
The UTLA said it ‘understands this type of email could be taken out of context’
Qudrat, whose son is in seventh grade, told Fox11: ‘Their conclusion is if you want schools to reopen right now, then that means you are racist against African Americans and Latinos.’
She was emailed by the union, who said they were conducting a survey on people who have spoken to the media about the reopenings. Qudrat added: ‘I felt very targeted.
So a mother wants her child back in school and she’s accused of being white and racist. WOW! I saw this and I thought I was on one of those Progressive hate channels.
