Please Don’t Ban Books.

Progressive or conservative, it doesn’t matter. Don’t “update” your school’s curriculum to match your political ideology. According to that article, the school board simply agreed with the student’s observation that Lord of The Flies = White Supremacy. That’s all it took! A simple agreement! “Yes, you’re right! We did not know that Lord of The Flies = White Power Structures. Let’s get rid of that one…” A perfectly progressive student raises a perfectly progressive statement about an apparently unprogressive book, and poof – Gone. Adios.

If there’s anything that outrages me to the point of boiling, it’s the banning of books, or the “updating” of curriculum to match a certain dogma. It’s as if we’re still living in the Victorian Age, only “hidden white supremacy” has subverted unconscious sexual desires.
