LOS ANGELES - Three Los Angeles elementary school teachers accused of giving children portraits of O.J. Simpson, Dennis Rodman and RuPaul to carry in a Black History Month parade have been removed from their classrooms, a school district spokeswoman said Wednesday.
"The superintendent will not let anyone make a mockery out of Black History Month," she said.
The issue was brought to district officials' attention by the Los Angeles chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People after the organization received a complaint early Monday, chapter President Leon Jenkins said.
Jenkins said he felt the teachers acted in concert to mock black heroes and children's innocence.

Black history month is a mockery. How come Steele wasn't included? /s
Wait...aren’t oj, dennis and rupaul black?
The issue is????
What???? No Snoop Dog (or is it Dogg)????
The very nerve!!!!
If they were black teachers, this sucks.
If they were yellow or tan or even blue, this sucks.
OK, how about the Congressman William Jefferson, Mayor Marion Barry, and Congressman Charles Rangle?
I don’t know. I would rate all three of the first group ahead of Mandela, and RuPaul and Rodman ahead of any but Tubman.
Neither RuPaul nor Rodman ever killed anyone, at least that we know of, while Simpson only murdered two people, in contrast to the hundreds slaughtered by Mandela’s ANC terrorists and the millions endangered by Bambi’s reckless policies.
I can not imagine anyone sending a kid to Pubic (sic) school.
I can no longer imagine trying to raise a kid in the USA now.
I had only one, and she never went to a pubic school.
She is now 26.
Rangel is only 2/3 as great a scumbag as the other two. He served honorably in the Korean War and during the Civil Rights movement but hasn’t done anything honest in 45 years. Jefferson and Barry never did anything worthwhile in their lives.
Ignorant teachers, these teachers didn’t look at the calendar.
Every knows “Murder, Druggie and Transsexual Month” is April......duh
When is muslim history month coming?
Whats’s the big deal? This is what black America is producing!
And former mayor of DEE-troit Kwaume Kilpatrick?
What a shame Clarence Thomas, Ralph Bunche, Condoleeza Rice, Walter Williams etc rarely seem to be included in these lists of notable Americans. Same with the African American astronauts, who are better role models, IMO, than “heroes” like the one in the White House.
they must choose one for each day of the month.........28 is a big number........lucky for them it isnt a leap year
It’s a shame that the black spokesmen and those mentioned above are actually blocking the blacks thet are real Americans.
Those that back the constitution and have love of thier freedom are marginalized.
The sad part is that this won’t change until the black community changes and quit whinning.
