Racism Allegations Against Principal Ben Chavis


1 comment

As promised in today's Full Disclosure, here are the letters that accuse Ben Chavis, principal of American Indian Public Charter School in Oakland, of racist and threatening comments. Signed by a Mills College education professor and four of her graduate students, the letters allege that Chavis called an African-American grad student a "fucking black minority punk" and threatened to kick his ass. They also allege that Chavis asked one of his own tenth-graders if a boy "was still trying to suck your titties." Chavis denied some of the allegations, but not all.
