Relative to non masking issues. Imagine  the authoritarian power rush your average #blueanon school board member or senior school administrator must feel when they can quash all discussion about curriculum.

The jackboots get an extra special shine on those day’s.

Ok, I'm curious because I honestly can't think of anything taught in government schools that is objectionable. I'm also not very up to date on the subject because I don't have school age children.

I'm pretty confident that you would not find anything taught in government schools objectionable.

Do they make your kids stand for the pledge at their anti-government school?

No, we homeschool and do not say the pledge of allegiance.  We do say a prayer sometimes.
Government schools in Smallville have Pledge of Allegiance / "give respect to the flag" time in the morning before class. My daughter has a student in her class who is Jehovah's Witness and abstains.

I knew a home school kid that went to church with some of my friends. Anyway his dad had some small business run out of their basement so there were like 10 computers down there and this kid would invite myself and other nerd bros over for counterstrike lan parties. It was pretty rad.

I was surprised that one of my kids' NYC government school said the pledge. The other one didn't.

The fact that one said it was a bit of a surprise. Although there are some very conservative NYC neighborhoods and a bit of lingering patriotism because of 9/11 I think.

Columbus Day at our government schools is now "Indigenous Peoples/Italian Heritage Day".

I mean, good on his black friend for trying to help his bro not get cancelled (while somehow not being super pissed at the racism). That dude is the real MVP.

I think the friend helped make the sign as a joke but correctly identified that it shouldn't be posted to social media (*source is a caller on local radio)

That's a weird scenario but I am a white dude so can't really comment.

As a black dude that has, he's going to look back at this with some regret. I let some "friends" in high school get by with, in retrospect, some incredibly racist crap. I was very naive and things aren't as heightened as they are now. That dude is just trying to fit in and not rock the boat.

I get Indigenous Peoples, but WTF with Italian Heritage Day?

Yeah, I assume they play football together which probably made him a bit hesitant to tell guy to not pull that kind of crap.

Yeah, I had situations like this when I was younger. One black acquaintance I would see at parties would love telling racist jokes and everyone thought it was hilarious. I obviously view it though a different lens now.

I once went to a bar in Platte City. There was one Asian dude in there and a bunch of rednecks. They all called the guy Chink, he even introduced himself that way to the people that brought me there and myself. Needless to say I didn't  than man that word and we all left 30 minutes later.
