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. Ramos, whose daughter attends the Bronx Success Academy charter school, is now demanding for Dukes resignation. We called Dukes at her office to seek comment, and her assistant told us that she is out of the office today, adding, “There’s an article every day about something or other, and she’s not going to comment on every one of them.” But this article, with its loaded rhetoric, is special! Given Dukes’s prominent position in the organization, you’d think she’d at least tone it down a notch—”slave master” is not the preferred nomenclature; “Unpaid Labor Supervisor,” please.
