Parents should be aware of this. It's absolutely appalling. I don't want my kids reading that garbage.

I went to my buddies' kids' school's book fair and it was trash like you describe or sportsball or monsters. Nothing like Encyclopedia Brown or the Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew. Well, like that, but all pozzed and magic-negroed to death. Like how many black scientists are there in the world, and don't say George Washington Carver.

You're right: there are a lot of "common core standards" books being created. A liberal relative sent my kid only common core books for his birthday. The book on Louis Armstrong had a gang of white kids chasing after him and destroying his trumpet. Hmm. The books all went promptly into the trash. No thanks.

This is why the Third Reich burnt books.
