Retraction and Stopping the Forward Madness
What's a post without at least one pictures, really?
I understand that I wrongly accused the University of Kentucky in my last post and humbly retract the accusation about a Holocaust curriculum decision.
I apologise and feel pretty gullible about that.
Do you think I should take down the post?
I can reply to the forward to try to stop damaging gossip like this, and we can and should talk about it.
Do read it and let me know. Keep in mind, the University of Kentucky still has a Holocaust studies program.
The American South has a tradition, interestingly, of keeping this memory alive.
See the documentary, Paper Clips, about a small rural town of less than two thousand people (Whitwell, Tennessee, predominantly white and Christian) and a school principal who wanted to expose her students to diversity. They memorialized the Holocaust with paper clips.
You can rent the video. Or better yet, take a drive down to Whitwell to see the memorial. It's unbelievable.
