Guideline 90
90. You shall not do away with history at the risk of offending someone.

You've got to be kidding me.... Some places are going to drop lessons on the Crusades and the Holocaust to keep from offending people of other races?

Wake up!! This is our world's history they are trying to do away with. I don't like the Holocaust - but the fact remains that it happens. If we pretend to look the other way, what does that say about us?

Let's see...can I make of list of things that might offend or has offended my family? Can we do away with those?

Martin Luther King Jr. Day - Sure, he stood up for civil rights. I'm all for that and I am so glad that he did....but because of an uneducated teacher in Arkansas, my son came home crying when we lived in Arkansas because she said that white people think they are better than black people. Up until that day, my son had never even questioned skin color. So we need to get rid of that.

Halloween - Sure, it's fun to dress up and go trick or treating...but it's also a pagan holiday. So let's get rid of that.. To heck with freedom of religion - we don't want to risk offending anyone.

I think some people need to keep their heads out of their butts when they move up into these higher level administrative places. Is it the history's fault the teachers don't know how to properly educate a student without offending them? No.

People get offended. The world isn't perfect and it never will be. Get over it.

    You speak the truth! I, too, am feed up with being politically correct just to prevent someone from being offended. Not that I'm an offensive person and don't care about another person's feelings, but come on people -- let's grow up a little.

    People don't have a right to not be a offended. It's going to happen every now and then. We need to assume good faith on the part of the speaker, not automatically believe they're out to crush us.

    Thanks for this great post!
