Middle School Teacher Suspended For Showing Video About White Actors Wearing Blackface -

Teacher suspended for telling the truth about American history and even called a racist for doing so. I’m glad the parents oppose the suspension. Why do people get punished for telling the truth?

"The unidentified assistant principal concluded that Barron’s lesson about how entertainers used to be racist was itself racist"

^^^ This is literally one of the oldest tricks in the book for keeping one’s people as ignorant as possible. Why are people so good at repeating history?

I was going to play along but they don’t offer Mike Patton as a frontman.
Also, I keep going over $25 because I’m insisting on Prince, Claypool and Grohl all playing together.

I want Scholvin’s opinion.

First reaction: I love that Freddie is worth 10 Morrisons. That’s about right.
For reals: there are lots of problems here (Jimmy Page on “rhythm guitar” and George Harrison on “lead”? JPJ at $1?). But to do it in the spirit of the thing, with one from each block:
Gilmour (7)
Richards (8)
Daltrey (7)
Jones (1)
Copeland (2)
Spend money on guitarists; get REAL value in the rhythm section. Those two are way underpriced.
If it’s limited to pre-1990 Axl, I might sub him in for Roger.

You’re an idiot if you don’t take Copeland at $2. I’ll take Pastorius on bass for $9, Brian May on lead guitar for $3, $10 for Freddie Mercury because Freddie Mercury and Stone Gossard because I only have a dollar left.

Brian May is seriously, seriously undervalued at $3.

Brian May—$3
Freddie Mercury (duh)—$10
Bootsy Collins—$5
Stewart Copeland (what a steal!)—$2
Neil Young (close call, but I want to spend all my money. It would be interesting to say the least to hear Brian May and Tony Iommi play together)—$5

Also, if you pick Steven Tyler for a frontman, you’re either 1) drunk or 2) one of my college ex-girlfriends.

Can we just start the argument about how none of these prices are right?
