    Great point, let us hope he gets through this first term before we go getting the hopes up of millions of children, only to then have them dashed.

    That is nonsensical crap, imo.
    Well it's inevitable. Anytime there's a group of pictures of past Presidents it's likely his image will be among the chosen because he's the only one that is black. This is likely going to be true for motivational posters, pictures, textbooks, magazines, etc.

    Sigh, Do you think everything they teach is worth learning?
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I know, but I was brought up to believe that race doesn't matter and it does but only if your not white.

    It's insanity.

    I think it beats the **** out of "protecting them" from information.

    There is a difference between us and it probably won't be resolved.

    You somehow believe that all schools teach children to be educated thinkers and I believe that they teach children to be obedient workers.

    I can't convince you of this but that is what I believe.
    My kids are allowed to access all information but I will not tolerate indoctrination.

    Translation: I'm the only one who gets to indoctrinate them.

    Diversity matters. Especially in schools. Let's say a text bookmaker needs 8 images of past presidents in 2015. What's wrong with the maker of a textbook using Obama's image so black kids aren't looking at a bunch of images of all white dudes? The same would be true if a woman were President. Her image would be used more often 'cause she's a woman. She has an ability to motivate girls in school that the men simply lack.

    You're getting hung up on race. It's diversity and it's not such a horrible thing.
