This is a thread for the sharing of News Articles and discussion of those articles.

I present the first article, an examination of an Oregon school principal who believes that PB&J sandwiches might not be culturally sensitive enough for some students of different ethnicity who may prefer a pita.

One of the funniest parts of the article was this:

The newspaper provided information about a drum corps that was set up for black and Latino boys. One parent complained that the class discriminated against women, Asians, whites and Native Americans.
Guitierrez defended the class and denied it was discriminatory.
“When white people do it, it is not a problem,” she told the Tribune. “But if it’s for kids of color, then it’s a problem? Break it down for me. That’s your white privilege, and your whiteness.”

I love how you choose this specific article! Can’t you be a racist by saying this? Why don’t you go discuss a news article about the November Election.
