Secretary Of Education Betsy DeVos Pretends Segregation Wasn't A Thing By Praising Historically Black Colleges As 'Pioneers' Of The 'School Choice' Movement

betsy devos praises hbcus


Honestly, Betsy DeVos should be ashamed of herself.

On Monday, following a meeting with the presidents and chancellors of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Miz DeVos released a statement where she praised these institutions as "pioneers" of the school choice movement.

Ummmm, excuse you??

The Donald Trump lackey wrote:

"HBCUs are real pioneers when it comes to school choice. They are living proof that when more options are provided to students, they are afforded greater access and greater quality. Their success has shown that more options help students flourish."

In the words of POTUS — WRONG. In case you forgot, a large majority of these schools were created after the Civil War and provided academic opportunities to black students as the Jim Crowe era shut them out of institutions which were exclusively for whites.

Many critics have also brought up the fact that these schools were founded out of necessity since the Plessy v. Ferguson ruling legally allowed segregation. These weren't "more options" as Betsy puts it — they were the ONLY option for many black students.

Thankfully, many political leaders have since DRAGGED Betsy for this ignorant comment. Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri went as far as to call the remark "totally nuts." The Senator elaborated on Twitter:

Twitter Is PISSED After Conservative Artist Compares Besty DeVos To Civil Rights Icon Ruby Bridges!

no title

Betsy DeVos has gotten a lot of heat since being appointed as Donald Trump's Education Secretary.

Aside from her lack of education experience, critics have accused the Republican party activist of buying her way into the cabinet, as she has donated millions of dollars to the GOP over the years.

Because there's no logical reason to back the appointment of this billionaire with no public service record, Devos' supporters are grasping at some bigggg straws.

One conservative cartoonist tried to make DeVos seem like the a victim in this scenario, but in doing so probably made the worst comparison in the history of historic figures.

Glenn McCoy made a mockery of an iconic painting of civil rights icon Ruby Bridges, who in 1960 became the first African-American to attend an all-white public school in the south.

The then 6-year-old and her mother had to be escorted to the New Orleans school by four U.S. marshals due to protestors. The historic scene was painted by Norman Rockwell, titled The Problem We All Live With.

Well, now the problem we all live with are idiots like McCoy, who thought it would be appropriate to recreate the painting with DeVos instead of Bridges.

The worst part is that where the original art had the N-word plastered across a wall, McCoy replaced with "CONSERVATIVE."

Come the fuck on, people! If you don't see what's wrong with that, you need to sit and contemplate your place in the problem.

After Twitter unleashed a frenzy on the syndicated artist, he issued a sort of apology for those who didn't like his metaphor usage, writing:

Library Of Congress Pulls Donald Trump's Portrait Due To A Grammatical Error!

Filed under: PolitikDonald TrumpSad SadTwitterEducational

no title

As evidenced by his Twitter account, grammar isn't really Donald Trump's strong suit.

And apparently, the inability to write a cohesive sentence is trickling down to the rest of the White House!

Over the weekend, an inauguration portrait of the President was removed from the Library of Congress store after Twitter users pointed out a glaring typo!

The pulled poster features a beaming Trump with a quote from his inauguration printed over his chest — but one of the four lines has a grammatical error that even George W. Bush would have been able to point out!

The misspelt quote read:

Betsy DeVos' Education Department is already off to a GREAT start. NOT!

Over the weekend, the Department of Education took to Twitter to share some inspiring words by historian W.E.B. Du Bois — only they totally butchered the civil rights activist's name. Smh.

Donald Trump's Pick For Labor Secretary Admits To Employing An Undocumented Worker

Filed under: Legal MattersPolitikDonald Trump

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos may have been pushed through despite a complete lack of qualification, but Donald Trump's pick for Labor Secretary is having some trouble.

That's thanks to a new mini-scandal in which it turns out Andrew Puzder, the CEO of Hardee's and Carl's Jr. parent company CKE, had undocumented labor in his own home!

Dun dun DUN!

Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, & More Celebs React With Anger & Disappointment To Betsy DeVos' Confirmation Vote As Education Secretary!

Donald Trump's plan to drain the White House swamp and replace it with toxic sludge is underway!

On Tuesday, the president's Secretary of Education pick Betsy DeVos was confirmed by the Senate — and she BARELY made the cut!

Mike Pence cast the deciding vote for her nomination in a historic tie-breaker. It was the first time in history the Vice President was called to break a tie on a cabinet nomination.

And for good reason…

The Amway heiress has been blasted by teachers' unions and public education advocates alike for her lack of teaching experience, her dismantling of the Michigan school system with disastrous results, and her belief that public schools should have guns to fight off grizzly bear attacks.

Yup, that's something she actually said.

Needless to say, critics had a lot to say about DeVos' appointment — celebs like Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, Piers Morgan, and Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui had some particularly scathing words for the new Education Secretary, Pence, and the cowardly Republican Congress!
