Dukes made the stunning attack in response to a Hispanic woman who wrote a heartfelt letter urging the civil-rights leader to pull the NAACP out of a lawsuit aimed at blocking the expansion or co-location of 19 charters in city school buildings.
"If you and the NAACP continue on this horrible lawsuit against my daughter's school and the fellow 18 charter schools," Janette Ramos said, "it will not be the best legacy to leave behind."But hey, why listen to the urgent pleas of parents when you can sink into the gutter so casually?
Dukes issued a terse response.Charters school as tools of slave masters. Yeah. Sure.
"You are not a member of the NAACP and don't understand that you are doing the business of slave masters," Dukes said in a June 1 response.
