NEW YORK-NAACP head Hazel Duke recently sent an email to a parent who wrote her urging the NAACP to drop a lawsuit against the Department Of Education for closing schools and opening charter schools. Gothamist reports:

“You are not a member of the NAACP and don’t understand that you are doing the business of slave masters,” Dukes explained to Ramos in an email sent June 1st.
