oh puhleese • John Foley, who teaches at Ridgefield High School in southern Washington, believes classics of American literature such as The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men should no longer be required reading for students.
I wish I was creative enough to make this kind of thing up. It’s kind of creatively insane. Yeah, lets pretend that we have always treated everyone equally all the time. There never was a time when one person was three fifths the value of someone else, there never was a time when merely being darker than a paper bag could get you jailed, lets just stop teaching our kids that it ever happened. wouldn’t it be a happier place? and we all want the world to be a happier place right?
Newsflash. Go outside and ask the 1st child you see if all men are created equal, any child, any age, any color. If they say no, I will eat my monitor. (I said created equally not treated equally) Children are the ones who think this already, it’s US who are the problem. The X and Y generation don’t have nearly as much racial prejudice as baby boomers, WHY? because we those books ARE PART OF THE FUCKING CURRICULUM, YOU DOPE!
Scuse me i have to go gnash my teeth.
