Village People Banned From School Talent Show for Being Racist
Like an algae infestation that consumes all the oxygen in a pond until every fish has died, political correctness is choking all life out of our civilization. Virtually any spontaneous demonstration of our national personality is a thought crime. Even the Village People, a multi-ethnic gay-friendly disco act that would seem to be diversity incarnate, has been banned as racist:
Has “Y.M.C.A.” ever struck you as a racist song? Well, one North Dakota parent complained about a school performance of the song, and her complaint got Bennett Elementary School to pull the song from the school’s talent show in May. However, the complaint had nothing to do with the content of the song itself, but the fact that the group that sings it, the Village People, has one member that dresses up like a Native American.
The school said students should dress up like the Village People for the performance, because the song would be performed by the entire first grade class, but the mother complained it would be “offensive” for children to come dressed to school like Native Americans. She explained, “Hopefully those people that are can make the right choices so all students of any culture and race won’t feel singled out or like their race is being stereotyped against.”
So educrats pulled the song to please the P.C. prig.
If naming sports teams after Indians is racist, then why wouldn’t dressing up as one be racist too?
Even being an Indian may be racist. Felipe Rose, the guy who dresses up as an Indian in the Village People, is part Sioux, a tribe indigenous to the Dakotas.
There will be nothing left of our culture but grim, humorless, monochromatic obedience if people don’t develop the spine to stand up to political correctness and the moonbat martinets who impose it.
