Can Rudy Crew survive Miami politics?

Rudycrew As quietly as it is being kept, The Miami New Times published a scathing article on Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent Rudy Crew. The article itself is not nearly as controversial as the newspaper's cover with the phrase that the superintendent "sucks donkey's balls".

Regardless of where you stand on Rudy Crew, that cover was highly disrespectful and inexcusable. Moreover, it served to taint the objectivity of the piece itself. It's likely that the article will strengthen the position of those who support Crew and the same for those that oppose him.

The South Park cartoon reference, "sucks donkey balls" is frequently used by young people. Google the term to see what I mean. Wow, that's another blog post for another time but if that phrase can be so casually used in conversation, we have issues way bigger than Dr. Crew or anyone else in his position.

The nasty fights between Board members will likely exacerbate and continue. Unfortunately, it's also likely the ethnic polarization will become more prevalent in the community and everyone in Miami will suffer. Stay tuned.

I've seen this time and time again in Miami-Dade County. When an A.A. holds a position everyone and their mother always has complaints. With Rudy Crew it started the day he began his position. I say hispanic only want hispanics in top positions here in Miami-Dade County. But guess what, it's not going to happen. We are here and we are not going anywhere, so DEAL WITH IT!
