Principal Fired For Supremacist Views


NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (UPI) — New York’s Catholic Archdiocese said it has fired the principal of a school in the Bronx over revelation of his ties to a white supremacist group.

Frank Borzellieri, who once wrote that the rising number of blacks and Hispanics in the United States would lead to a new “Dark Age,” was relieved of his duties at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, WPIX-TV, New York, reported.

Borzellieri, 48, had served as principal at Our Lady of Mount Carmel since 2009.

The school has a predominantly black and Latino student population.

“Many of the opinions expressed by Mr. Borzellieri in his writings were found to be incompatible with the philosophy and practices of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School, and with the Catholic schools throughout the archdiocese,” said a statement issued by the archdiocese Tuesday.
