UK: Schools Told To Avoid White Paper Because It Could Make Students Racist…

[img style='border: 1px solid black;' class='alignnone size-full wp-image-92177']http://border: 1px solid black;[/img]

The UK continues to set the bar high when it comes to PC nonsense.

(Telegraph) — Teachers should censor the toy box to replace witches’ black hats with a pink ones and dress fairies in darker shades, according to a consultant who has issued advice to local authorities.

From the Wicked Witch of the West in "The Wizard of Oz” to Meg, the good witch from the "Meg and Mog” children’s books, witches have always dressed in black.

But their traditional attire has now come in for criticism from equality experts who claim it could send a negative message to toddlers in nursery and lead to racism.

Instead, teachers should censor the toy box and replace the pointy black hat with a pink one, while dressing fairies, generally resplendent in pale pastels, in darker shades.

Another staple of the classroom — white paper — has also been questioned by Anne O’Connor, an early years consultant who advises local authorities on equality and diversity.

Children should be provided with paper other than white to drawn on and paints and crayons should come in "the full range of flesh tones,” reflecting the diversity of the human race, according to the former teacher.

Finally, staff should be prepared to be economical with the truth when asked by pupils what their favourite colour is and, in the interests of good race relations, answer "black” or "brown”.

Hopefully one of our UK brothers will come in here and explain that one to us, or hell, the whole thing for that matter.

Has anyone actually met or even seen a person who is actually white, or for that matter, actually black.

I thought this was going to be a link to the Onion.

The funny thing is, white people aren't paper white and black people aren't really witch's attire black, so those are already outside of the range of flesh tones anyway. Idiots.

"The advice is based on an "anti-bias” approach to education which developed in the United States as part of multiculturalism. "

Where I grew up, we had construction paper in all kinds of colors to play with, and 64-count boxes of Crayolas. Does this school only provide copier paper and #2 pencils to draw with or something?

Edit: From the comments:

What colour paper would be acceptable? Surely red or blue paper would offend the victims of British and American imperialism, green paper would offend protestants, orange paper would offend catholics, yellow paper would be taken as a slur against the French character, pink paper would stereotype homosexuals and purple paper would just be yucky.

As a lover of the colour purple I resent you stereotyping that marvelous and very disadvantaged colour as "yucky"!! :)
