Political Cartoon Compares Betsy DeVos to Civil RIghts Icon Ruby Bridges

A cartoon that draws on Norman Rockwell's iconic painting of an African-American girl defying school segregation to defend Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has sparked a firestorm of criticism.

Outraged that DeVos is being compared to Ruby Bridges, whose bravery was immortalized in the 1964 painting "The Problem We All Live With," critics let their feelings be known on social media about the cartoon, which appeared in an Illinois newspaper.
