Loeb, an outspoken charter school proponent and one of the biggest donors in New York politics, unfavorably compared a top African-American state senator to the Ku Klux Klan, he exchanged a separate series of caustic and racially charged emails with a top official in the de Blasio administration.

“There is right and wrong and you put your bureaucracy, the union puppets you serve, over the interest of little vulnerable black children and their families,” Mr. Loeb wrote in June 2017 to Richard Buery, the deputy mayor for strategic policy initiatives, in emails obtained by The New York Times under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. Mr. Buery, who is African-American and is credited by the de Blasio administration as the architect of its universal prekindergarten initiative, wrote in the same email chain, “Do you really not see the hubris of your lecturing me about the plight of black children and what they need?”
