School demands artist change Black and Latino faces to white

Yes, really.

An Arizona elementary school mural featuring the faces of kids who attend the school has been the subject of constant daytime drive-by racist screaming, from adults, as well as a radio talk-show campaign (by an actual city councilman, who has an AM talk-radio show) to remove the black student’s face from the mural, and now the school principal has ordered the faces of the Latino and Black students pictured on the school wall to be repainted as light-skinned children.

In Arizona, which is probably what you expect by now.

  1. From the web site linked to:

    …large chunks of America are in the hands of unreconstructed racists and vulgar idiots, and that the popular election of a black man as president just might’ve pushed these furious, economically doomed old white people into a final rage that is going to end very, very badly.

  2. fwiw, i’ve seen it reported in the update to the huffpo article on this that the principal and superintendent reversed the decision and apologized publicly for caving into the racists. don’t lose hope, j.; sometimes we get the accountability we demand!
