DeVos cartoon is offensive, misrepresentative

The political cartoon of Betsy DeVos as Ruby Bridges is offensive and misrepresentative. No millionaire cabinetmakers has had their church firebombed, been forced to take a seat at the back of the bus, or been given a poor education simply because of the color of their skin. This was the history you are calling up with this image. Comparing criticism of the appointment of a billionaire, to a child being harassed during integration is despicable!

People across the country are calling on you to retract. Please consider the history of this image and issue a retraction.
