Children's book tackles racism in age of Colin Kaepernick
Jamestown Sun (North Dakota) ^ | Sep. 18, 2018 | John Lamb

FARGO — Anastasia Higginbotham is a children's book author and illustrator, not an athlete, but to teach kids to stand up against racism, she's taking a knee next to Colin Kaepernick.

The quarterback is pictured in her new book, "Not My Idea: A Book About Whiteness," so when Higginbotham prepared for readings, she drew a cardboard cutout of the controversial star and a stadium backdrop.

“Smash Racism DC” harassed a Hispanic senator at a restaurant and told him he was not welcome there.

But it is Ted Cruz and he isn’t a Communist so hate can be spewed at him.

>>The series uses children’s point of view and the author’s own child-like illustrations to discuss touchy subjects in books like, “Divorce is the Worst,” “Death is Stupid” and “Tell Me About Sex, Grandma.”

“Tell Me About Sex, Grandma.”

Probably my most uttered phrase...

Even if “whiteness” was some kind of a problem, it’s not something for young kids to deal with.

This woman should be whipped in public. I can’t express my level of loathing for her and her ilk.

Looks like my daughter changed jobs just in time. She was Children’s Lead at a Barnes and Noble.

Actually, she did a pretty good job of de-emphasizing stupid SJW rant books like this when they came out. If liberal freaks asked for them, they “must have sold all the ones on the shelf, but I might have some in the back.” (like all of them)

You folks need to visit your local library and just see the bilge being put on the shelves in the kids section.

If it isnt crap like this, it’s books about little boys wearing dresses.

I’m not kidding either.

“#EndWhiteShaming

While you are correct, and I agree, the left has decreed that it’s impossible to be racist against white people.

I hate them, anyone and everyone on the left. You have no idea the misfortune I wish upon those evil souls.

How can responsible parents allow this?

Racism is ten times worse than it ever was in my childhood thanks to these dingbats.
