Hilarious. You really can’t make this up. That is why most New Yorkers I have known are so pathetically dumb.

This is what you have to take away from this story:

If you care about your child’s education in New York, do not allow them to have a black or Hispanic teacher. There is a good chance they are not qualified to teach.

What Leftists are saying is that Blacks and Hispanics are intellectually inferior.

If this is the case, then why do they need any teachers at all?. Fire all the teachers, and hire security guards to confine the students during school hours.

“because black and Hispanic teaching candidates struggled to pass the exam”

Only a racist would think this is true.
