    Someone needs to explain to the mother that in the 1800s, the world was ****ing racist. Why doesn't she know this? Where the **** did she get educated? Perhaps she should be in class with her child and not complaining about historical facts.
    You can't apply 21st Century standards to the 19th Century.

    Sure one can, and one should. At the same time, one must be aware of historical context.

    It's not an "either/or" thing. One can, and really should, view historical figures in both a modern and historical context. It's not that difficult and failing to be capable of such is hardly something I can fix.

    The word, "racism", hadn't even been coined yet, so...no.

    The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists
    .


    That mother needs to learn some history.

    All of those men were racists.

    ...and they told the mother the material was not a student hand out....Right.

    Did the mother find out why her child took something off the Teacher's desk area without permission?

    Maybe someone should chop the student's hand off.
