Bernstein With a Twist
This is a weekly program with commentary on current issues.
I canít let Thanksgiving 2008 fade into history without retelling my favorite, most heart-warming Thanksgiving story:
Kindergarteners celebrating genocide.
We take you to Claremont, where a platoon of politically correct parents, including a UCR professor, put a stop to a Thanksgiving celebration.
You won't believe what kids at two elementary schools have been up to. Kindergarteners at one school dress up as Pilgrims. Kids at the other as Indians. These are handmade costumes. Crafted from construction paper. Maybe a real feather or two.
Then kids from one school visit the other school for a Thanksgiving feast. The next year, they trade roles and schools. How long has this been going on? Forty years!
Not anymore. The politically correct parents saw to that. The Claremont school district saw to it, too. It banned the kindergarteners' costumes after PC parents denounced such finery as demeaning and perpetuating stereotypes. You couldn't pull a fake headdress or buckled hat over their eyes.
