Racial Slur Prompts School To Cancel Play - News Story - WFTV Orlando
Ow, the stupidity, it hurts.
amazing...remember mark furman was just guilty of saying ******...and that allowed a murderer to go free....
people are amazingly stupid....
let me guess, another decision made by zero tolerance rules
The stupidity is on those parents, students, and community members who complained. The only wrong thing the school did in this case was cave in into such stupidity.
well, it is in line with the "zero tolerance" rules
or as i refer to them, "zero common sense"
So another part of the American heritage is thrown in the wastebasket. I just saw this movie with Gregory Peck on TCM a few weeks ago and it does have parts where people with accute sensitivites can have problems with. This is just another time where instead of dealing with the evils of the world they try to cover it up. Those kids if they had seen the play would have (hopefully) gained some insight into the racial atmosphere of those times. But now they are being insulated from it because it offends someone.
George Santayana: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."
Ah yes, the teaching of hypersensitive censorship at it's finest. Maybe these same complainers can go through the library inventory and find books for a community bonfire also. Come one, come all, marshmallows provided!
