NBC News Paints ‘Moms for Liberty’ as Racist After a South Carolina School Board Fired Its Black Superintendent
The report buried the fact that the new superintendent is also black.
The conservative activist group ‘Moms for Liberty’ recently won South Carolina, effectively taking over a school board.
Within hours, they banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory and fired the school superintendent.
NBC News covered the story but used a racial (and dishonest) angle. Here’s what they tweeted:
Within hours, the school board had voted to fire the district’s first Black superintendent, terminate the district’s lawyer, ban critical race theory and set up a new committee to decide whether certain books and materials should be banned from schools. https://t.co/D07mcyisv9

Here’s what they failed to mention in their tweet:
“voted to fire the district’s first Black superintendent” – sounds racist! not in the tweet: Replacement also Black https://t.co/7rOgoZQDtx

From the report:
Moms for Liberty-backed school board members fire superintendent, ban critical race theory
On Tuesday evening, the Berkeley County School District in South Carolina swore in the board members who were elected last week, six of whom were endorsed by the conservative activist group Moms for Liberty.
Within two hours, the school board had voted to fire the district’s first Black superintendent, terminate the district’s lawyer, ban critical race theory and set up a committee to decide whether certain books and materials should be banned from schools.
In addition, the board voted to replace the chair with Mac McQuillin, a local attorney and one of the board members backed by Moms for Liberty.
The rapid moves Tuesday in the Berkeley County district, the fourth largest in the state, showed the impact of Moms for Liberty’s focus on electing conservative school board members, and prompted uproar among some community members in attendance.
Buried towards the bottom of the article is this (emphasis is mine):
Moments later, McQuillin moved to terminate Deon Jackson, who was appointed superintendent last year, and replace him with Anthony Dixon, who had worked in the district as an administrator. Dixon will be the district’s second Black superintendent, after Jackson.
Funny how NBC left out that key detail.
Context: The guy they had replace him is also black. https://t.co/HzYs9YT77L

You have to click on the NBC story and read down to the 9th paragraph to learn that the superintendent hired to replace the one fired is also black.
But including that information would have spoiled their tweet. https://t.co/GVhkeEDpBc

The liberal media is determined to divide Americans by race and to advance the leftist narrative that conservatives are racists. They prove it again and again.DONATE
