Historian and author Tim Tyson lit into Wake County school board member John Tedesco and conservative businessmen Art Pope and Bob Luddy at Monday night's NAACP rally.
Tyson argued throughout his talk that the move toward neighborhood schools in Wake can be traced to efforts to resist school integration. He repeatedly belittled Tedesco in his comments.
"How did I get on there," Tyson said about first mentioning Tedesco. "I was thinking of idiotic bureaucrats. God bless him. He doesn’t know what he thinks until they give them his talking points."
