The OP linked to an article that showed books removed from the required reading list in a school district in Minnesota and in Biloxi Mississippi.
This was presented as proof of Left Wing Authoritarianism
I just pointed out that the Biloxi part screws up that theory.

And we don't know anything about the Minnesota school board do we.

But if you want to believe it, we won't let facts get in the way.

Biloxi has decades of history of Democrat leadership. While the current mayor is a republican, he was a Democrat a couple of years ago. I am not sure about the leaders of the school district but I will bet you it is liberal.

Confused as usual gramps.

Just have them change your bag and push you back in the cornor. It will be ok. It is sad that these episodes happen more frequently w/ time but it is what it is.

Thank you.

I was wondering if anybody was going to see the irony on that labeling. LOL

This has nothing to do with right wing or left wing.

It has to do with ignorant people making ignorant decisions. You don't have to be on the right or you don't have to be on the left to be ignorant.

The idea that the racists in "To Kill a Mockingbird" would call the defendant on trial an "African American" is absolutely ridiculous. And it would totally negate the ugliness of the situation.

That's why education should be left to educators and not left in the hands of business owners and religious leaders.
Thanks from catus felis and Clara007
