TWO New York School Administrators Fired After Refusing to Give ‘Wakanda Salutes’?

Two Bronx school district chiefs claim that they were fired, at least partly, because they refused to participate in ‘Wakanda Forever’ salutes at meetings with other superintendents and higher-ups, according to the New York Post.

Two Bronx school district chiefs claim that they were fired, at least partly, because they refused to participate in ‘Wakanda Forever’ salutes at meetings with other superintendents and higher-ups, according to the New York Post.

One of the cases involves Rafaela Espinal, formerly head of New York’s Community School District 12. Espinal earlier this month sued the city’s Department of Education (DOE), as well as Chancellor Richard Carranza and some of his top lieutenants, for wrongful termination, the New York Post reported on Saturday. She alleged that her career suffered after she declined at superintendent meetings to take part in group ‘Wakanda Forever’ salutes to black power, popularized in the 2018 movie ‘Black Panther’.

Espinal, who is of Dominican heritage and identifies as Afro-Latina, was admonished and told that it was inappropriate when she chose not to join in the salutes, the lawsuit alleged. Then-Bronx superintendent Meisha Ross Porter, who was later promoted to executive superintendent, often asked groups at gatherings of DOE administrators to do ‘Wakanda Forever’ salutes.

Born down on the farm in America's Midwest, my early life was spent climbing the ladder via a long career in information technology. Starting as a technician, and after earning a degree going to night school, I eventually found a place working at ATT Bell Laboratories as a software engineer.

Later moving into management and then a long stint in a major management consulting firm working with major banking, telecommunications, and retail companies. Working in various states in America, I also spent considerable time living and working in several European countries - currently expat in France. As a side career, I was heavily involved in real estate development and an avid futures trader. This experience can give one a unique view of the world.

The storm clouds of dark change are near. Today America is at a crossroads. Will it maintain its prowess as a national leader in the free modern advancing world, or will it backtrack in the abyss of the envy identity politics of tyrannical socialism, and the loss of individual freedoms. The 2020 election may have decided this. Join the Right Wire Report team and make a stand.
