Readin' Writin' and Reason | Episode 80

Politics in Education

Dom Giordano, WPHT host and former teacher, has dedicated much of his daily show toward parents who are taking it into their own hands to push back against school boards that have a negative impact on their children. This has culminated in a weekly podcast on education, Readin', Writin', and Reason, which has allowed wonderful relationships to develop between Giordano, educators, and parents throughout the country who are speaking out against overbearing school boards.

First, Dom welcomes Jennifer Sey, former Levi’s executive and author of the upcoming Levi’s Unbuttoned: The Woke Mob Took My Job but Gave Me My Voice, onto the podcast. First, Dom asks Sey about her losing her Levi’s job because of her comments made about the hypocritical nature of Coronavirus edicts, specifically asking about the new push by the Left to provide ‘amnesty’ to those on the opposite end of Sey who got things so wrong. Ley, who’s launched a Substack since leaving Levi’s, explains the benefits of her job loss, telling how she now can freely speak on issues that have become politicized.

Then, Dom welcomes New York Post columnist Adam Coleman, author of Black Victim to Black Victor and founder of Wrong Speak Publishing, onto the podcast to discuss his column he penned this weekend for the Post in which he writes how the media lied to him about Conservatives. Coleman, an African-American man, decided to do a deeper dive into politics following the George Floyd protests and found that much of the rhetoric that conservatives are ‘racist’ is largely fabricated by a Left-leaning media for political purposes. Coleman explains his point, discussing the policies propagated by Democrats that actually hurt communities of color, focusing largely on school choice and the prioritization of school unions over the needs of parents necessitating help.
