Well this is an interesting bit of news.
Due to protests from a group of Native Americans, kindergartners at Condit Elementary School in California have been banned from wearing Thanksgiving costumes.
Some parents agree that the Native American costumes are demeaning and racist. Others feel that politics are being unfairly inserted into a fun (if not wholly accurate) tale of two factions setting aside their differences.
The debate is hot in the town of Claremont, CA. Despite the ban, many parents are sending their children to school in costume anyway.
Here’s a video from the LA Times. You can watch the two groups of protesters arguing with each other.
I’m interested to see how this plays out. Feel free to sound off in the comments below.
