A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans. The controversy comes after a working group determined the mural, made up of several panels, “traumatizes students and community members.” But advocates for keeping the 83-year-old mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history.

What cracks me up is I'd bet most of the kids haven't even seen the mural as they walk by because they are too busy with their stupid phones to pay attention. Heck, probably don't know who GW was anyway.

People only get upset when the situation suits them.
If we want to get to the root of cultural appropriation then Africans should be using planes trains and automobiles.
No medications either unless they ground up some bark.
But by god dread locks are theirs!
