    Four white Philadelphia teachers charge in federal race-bias lawsuits that a black principal suggested they were unfit to teach black students.

    The teachers work at a predominantly black school in the city's East Falls neighborhood. Their lawsuits say a former principal had them read an article that said "white teachers do not have the ability to teach African-American students."

    The Thomas Mifflin Elementary teachers say the principal and others undermined their work by reprimanding them, randomly changing their room assignments and letting black teachers ignore rules that white teachers had to follow.

    That is a website primarily black. From the comments I read and the article itself, they don't seem too impressed either.

    As long a human being refuse to be color blind, this will continue. Division upon division. Sigh.

    Hope the four can back up their claims when it gets before a judge or jury.

    Probably be a slam dunk though if it was blacks accusing whites.
