Racist logo?

On top of the PC nonsense going on in the Guilford County, NC School System with the “confronting racism” workshop is this story from McKinney, TX about a parent complaining about what she sees as a “racist” logo for the school district’s preschool program. What’s so “racist” about it?

A Mckinney ISD parent is calling a new logo symbolizing the district’s preschool program a form of racism.

The logo depicts a fair-skinned child doing a cartwheel in front of the earth. But Leslie Moore, a McKinney teacher whose child is in the preschool program, took exception.

“It sends the wrong message,” Moore said. “It’s telling me that every other ethnic race other than Caucasian is inferior to the Caucasian race.”

Moore sent an e-mail to preschool director Kristina Perez, who wrote back, “The intention was never to make any ethnicity feel left out.”

Perez also wrote, “T-shirts are already in print, along with bags for the children. We have also designed letterhead. At this point, I don’t think it would be feasible to make changes.”

“I would like to see that every child is being represented on the logo,” Moore said. “That they are worthy of making the face of a t-shirt.”

McKinney ISD administrators told News 8 they have stopped all printing of the logo. They’ll meet with Moore next week to discuss other options, including another logo that depicts diversity with three children.

This is the alleged “racist” logo. This is the proposed alternative.

Methinks somebody has too much time on their hands.
