Three white Los Angeles elementary school teachers have been suspended for giving children pictures of O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul to carry in a Black History Month parade last week, the Associated Press reports. African Americans want the school district to fire the men.
O.J.??? Seriously???

Um...

Hmmm.

I don't really think those three are the point of the whole *history* part of the thing.

I also have an issue with RuPaul being lumped in with O.J. Rodman is neither here nor there for me....but I am probably forgetting something.

Weird. There are so many things wrong with that, I don't even know where to begin.

Yeah I wouldn't have a huge issue with RuPaul but if they are being "like that" then they probably were not being nice.

I don't really know anything about Rodman.

Yeah, they were obviously not being nice. They were going with some veiled and not so veiled insults.
