Posting the relevant parts:

"A veteran Bronx educator claims she was fired in part because she refused to mimic a salute to Black power from the 2018 comic-book movie “Black Panther” during superintendent meetings.

At official gatherings of high-level Department of Education bosses, then-Bronx superintendent Meisha Ross Porter often asked the group to do the arms-across-the-chest gesture of solidarity from the mythical African nation of Wakanda. The salute is considered a symbol of empowerment.

When Rafaela Espinal — a Dominican-American who describes herself as Afro-Latina — declined to join in, she “was admonished and told that it was inappropriate for her not to participate,” according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit filed Feb. 3 against the city DOE, Chancellor Richard Carranza and some of his top-ranking lieutenants.

Espinal was one year shy of earning a lifetime DOE pension when she was abruptly fired from her role as head of Community School District 12 in Bronx without explanation, after repeatedly refusing to do the “Wakanda Forever” salute, according to the lawsuit.

Porter would often talk about the militant civil rights group the Black Panthers when asking superintendents to do the “Wakanda” salute, noting her father was a member, the attorneys said.

The DOE insists the famous cross-arm gesture doesn’t refer to “Black power,” but is instead “a symbol used to represent the Bronx.”

Espinal, 50, claims racial fissures began to emerge in superintendent meetings in the fall of 2017, when some Black administrators would meet separately after the larger group’s monthly gatherings.

Soon, only the birthdays of Black superintendents were recognized at official meetings, she claims.

The racial tensions bubbled up just as the controversial Carranza was appointed chancellor of city schools in April 2018, and began pushing a platform of racial “equity” that critics have blasted as divisive and educationally problematic.

Espinal alleges Jose Ruiz, an advisor to then-first deputy chancellor Cheryl Watson-Harris, degraded her race and gender, saying, “You are so pretty but then you enter the room open your mouth and intimidate men and people.”

Watson-Harris, who has since jumped ship from the DOE to take charge of schools in DeKalb County, Georgia, didn’t even get Espinal’s district correct in her August 2018 termination letter, writing “you will no longer serve in District 8.”

you know your kid's going to get a shitty education if his teachers give each other the wakanda salute

It is super weird that this gesture is somehow supposed to be a big scale movement gesture that isn't just stupid. I mean, it was made by producers and writers, it wasn't organic. Why not the random fist in the air thingy blacks do? But yah, kids run nyc. Immature man children.
