Ku Klux Kurriculum

Members of the Texas Board of Education did their best to out wing-nut Harry Elmer Barnes' Holocaust Denial movement, and to build a bridge to the 16th century, by striking Hip hop from the Texas social studies curriculum and by burying mention of the Age of Enlightenment.

Hip-hop, which Board Members consider nihilistic, will be replaced by country and western.

See the posts

It's only fitting to strike back with a clip of some well-fed good ol' boys - Austin's alt-country band The Gourds - doing a cover of Snoop Dogg's homage to Seagrams and Tanqueray gin, Gin & Juice.
With so much drama in the L-B-C

Its kinda hard bein Snoop D-o-double-g

But I, somehow, some way

Keep comin up with funky ass shit like every single day

Superstition, bigotry and prejudice, ghosts though they are, cling tenaciously to life; they are shades armed with tooth and claw. They must be grappled with unceasingly, for it is a fateful part of human destiny that it is condemned to wage perpetual war against ghosts. A shade is not easily taken by the throat and destroyed.
~Victor Hugo
