    Hey War, did you even read the article or search for the full story? He was teaching history. If we ignore history, we are doomed to repeat it. I would rather have him teach the truth about our past than sugar-coat it or sweep it under the rug.

    Recently there was a black person who did white-face but the media pretty much ignored that racism. Look it up.

    Don't teach the truth remember no Jews where killed in WWII. I still can't believe we allow schools to poison our kids. They teach only half truth. My son came home and said my guns kill people WHAT I sat him down and taught him that only bad people holding the gun kill people. Come on America if we don't start teaching the truth we have all failed.

    I could not tell from reading the article if the teacher thought it was good or bad or was he just trying to report history.


    I agree this article was somewhat poorly written but when i read the "full" article i found that there really isnt much more to the story. It sounds like the "assistant principal" is actually crying out for attention while the only child who deems any merit for being offended (the student who has an African American father) was only offended when they stopped the video and the jerk assistant principal made a spectacle of it.
