The Arlington Independent School District, which passed on airing President Barack Obama’s live classroom address, has announced that some students will be bussed off campus to hear a message from former President George W. Bush on Sept. 21.
Dwight McKissic Sr., the senior pastor of Arlington’s Cornerstone Baptist Church, said he’s concerned about the district’s decision to not broadcast Obama’s message while transporting students to hear a message from Bush.
“I do not understand the duplicity in this situation,” McKissic said in a news release from the church. “I believe the students and the public deserve and need to have these differences explained.”
I couldn’t agree more. Just when you think you’ve seen and heard it all, there’s always another event to remind us once again, much of the resistance to President Obama has absolutely nothing at all to do with his policies or party, but rather the same old nasty thing that’s dogged this country since the beginning of time, racism.
What other reason could there be for this? Is it just because good ‘ol GW is from Texas so it’s just a homeage to GW?
Yeah right, then why not also allow them to see the speech of the current President of The United States?
