Ethnic Children In Mural Nearly Get Whiteface 

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

A school in Prescott, Arizona, has a mural depicting children from its ethnically diverse student body. A small group of racist idiots in the town don’t like it, and have taken to driving by and yelling racial slurs at the wall. Because of this, the principal planned to have the faces of Mexican and black students lightened.

The school principal finally grew a pair — after the whole country was outraged by his demand that the brown kids be “lightened” on his school’s mural — and went out in public to say the mural would stay as it is, and that he was wrong.

It’s difficult to call this a happy ending, but it’s certainly better than it could have been.
