Liberals Angry That Betsy DeVos Will Give Speech at Historically Black College

Heads I win, tails you lose.

This is a perfect example of how conservatives can never win in the minds of the left. If DeVos didn’t do this, she would be criticized for ignoring HBCs. If she does go, it’s framed as controversy.

MLive reports:

Upcoming Betsy DeVos speech at historically black university sparks controversy

U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos will give the keynote speech at historically black university Bethune-Cookman University’s spring 2017 commencement ceremony.

The commencement is scheduled for 12 p.m. Wednesday, May 10, and comes a few months after DeVos was widely criticized for connecting historically black colleges and universities, or HBCUs, to the school choice movement.

The school, located in Daytona Beach, Fla., was founded by Mary McLeod Bethune, a prominent educator and civil rights leader.

In a press release, school president Edison O. Jackson said DeVos is similar to school founder Mary McLeod Bethune in that she knows the importance of opportunity and has a similar mission to empower parents and students.

“The legacy of Dr. Bethune is that she was not constrained by political ideology, but worked across all parties to support B-CU,” he said.

Can the college handle the backlash (that is SURE to follow)? Most of us (Conservatives)in Michigan love and respect the Devos family, tried hard to get her husband as Governor. But a little chick named Jennifer Granholm came forth with her Hammer and Sickle and almost destroyed us.

This is a perfect example of how conservatives can never win in the minds of the left.

The minds of the left? This must be some new discovery that I haven’t heard about. There are many things in life that aren’t worth worrying about, and what the leftist media think about anything is one of them. Having a big fish on four pound line is something to worry about and is lots of fun too.

What to do with public service unions is a worry, but that’s way above my paygrade. In my experience, they only exist to make the union richer and to make it difficult to get rid of non producers. Sec Devos looks like the right person to deal with the problems in Education. I’m with her.
