Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Black history, white teachers, and Oberlin High Scool

I don’t know. I am sitting here on a perfectly nice afternoon--doing necessary bureaucratic work (i.e., boring myself to death) when I’d rather be out riding my bike--and then this is sent to me by a friend. It perked me up! Oberlin High School has a problem. Some parents (I gather mostly black) are up in arms because a white teacher has been assigned to teach a course on black history. You get the picture. It’s amazing that in an article of some three hundred words, every form of weird opinion is to be found. I guess I’ll have to consider not teaching Fred Douglass, Booker T. Washington, et al, never mind slavery. You Americans continue to amuse me.
