Race plays a big role on the Duval County School Board

A few weeks back both African American members of the board, Paula Wright and Betty Burney voted to select Kriner Cash an African American as the replacement for Ed Pratt-Dannals. The rest of the board members, all white, voted for the eventual successor Nikolai Vitti.

Fast-forward to earlier today when Connie Hall nominated Paula Wright for vice chair of the board. All the white members however voted for Becki Couch.

Maybe we really haven’t come that far after all.
