Yeah, so what exactly am I supposed to do about this, if anything? Doesn’t this seem a little, oh, I don’t know, 1963? And do the teachers see any irony in the fact that they had the kids do this on the same day our country elected the first African American president? Were they thinking, “Well, we’d better make sure people still remember what our old stereotypes were, the ones we are RIGHT THIS SECOND breaking down!” At least the Indian isn’t saying “How!” and trading his squaw for wampum. I’m guessing this was part of some countdown to Thanksgiving. I do like that Henry drew a modern Indian, with a baseball hat and orange pants. And why a giant sticker of a Rosemary Wells raccoon is appropriate on this, I have no idea.
Let’s hope they didn’t have a little dance to go with this song.
