This couldn't be a better movie I tell you. Frank Borzellieri is a principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, which is mostly attended by Black and Latino students. Frank doesn't really care about that, in fact, he has done a 'few' things to cause problems.
Ban literature he labeled "anti-American" from school libraries. His targets included books on different races and culture, and a biography of King.Sad thing here, the person who hired him didn't think this was any concern.
Remove an openly gay teacher and gay-rights activist from the classroom at Public School 199 in Sunnyside, and ban school employees from making any references to homosexuality.
Introduce a resolution calling for students to be taught that U.S. culture is superior. Borzellieri's views rankled teachers at St. Barnabas School in Woodlawn, Bronx, where he taught English from 2006 to 2009
In 2004, Borzellieri wrote the book "Don't Take It Personally: Race, Immigration, Crime and Other Heresies," in which he declares "diversity is a weakness" and says the rising black and Hispanic populations in America will lead to the "New Dark Age."
He has also written frequently for the white supremacist publication American Renaissance, with which he is still "intimately involved," the non-profit Southern Poverty Law Center says.
Mount Carmel pastor, the Rev. Eric Rapaglia, said he knew of Borzellieri's views, but didn't "see any cause for concern" when he hired him to run the 200-student elementary school.
"I knew of him from my last parish," he said. "Do I agree with all of it? No. But I think much of it is valuable and logical and reasonable.Really? What is really going on here?
"A lot of his ideas would actually benefit minorities," he added.
