School Superintendent Says “Our Worst Enemy Is The Young Ladies”

“Our worst enemy is the young ladies. The young girls are bad. I don’t know what they’re drinking today, but they’re bad.”

That’s Jersey City, New Jersey’s Schools Superintendent Charles T. Epps Jr. speaking to a group of Jersey City pastors last Wednesday. Epps was speaking about his efforts to recruit more mentors in the city’s Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Do I even need to tell you how f**ked up it is that these words came out of the school superintendent‘s mouth? This is what sexism looks like, people. Facepalm. [NJ.com via Clutch Mag]
