62 Thinks if a teacher assigns the class a book to read

the parent should be able to say no. They are not permitted to read that book.

The story this mother in Virgina tells is about a teacher who assigned her high school seniors to read Beloved - and it’s Beloved where we finally learn - no there were no slaves just as happy as campers to be abused and raped.

Supposedly this high school senior runs home to his mommy all upset about blacks being raped and sodomized. Guess the kid got a very severe case of culture shock. He was expecting to read about a uncle Ben and Aunt Jemima I suppose. So mommy wants to write this new law says - If I think my kids shouldn’t read this book - you can’t teach it.

Well the governor saw where this was headed - book burnings in another form. - so he said hell no.

And mommy is very very passed. And so is 62.

The moral of the story - if your black - read Beloved, If your right - watch the happy slaves in Gone With the Wind.
