Not the lesson they intended - Los Angeles Times

"Administrators at a LA charter school forbade students from reciting a poem about civil rights icon Emmett Till during a Black History Month program recently, saying his story was unsuitable for an assembly of young children.

RZ: What happened to Emmett Till is American History, and is reflective of an attitude millions of people still harbor against Blacks, and people of color in general.

The administrators at that school are white washers of history and detrimental to they youths whose education they have been entrusted with. Shame on them.

Black people, we NEED some boycotts around this mutha.'
