New York Students Required to Read Dem Rep. John Lewis’ Racially-Provocative Graphic Novel – IOTW Report

New York Students Required to Read Dem Rep. John Lewis’ Racially-Provocative Graphic Novel

PJM: A middle school in Western New York is under fire for an assignment in the eighth-grade English language arts (ELA) class. Moravia Middle School eighth graders were assigned the graphic novel March, written by Democrat Congressman John Lewis. The book is part of a graphic novel series that Lewis wrote about his experience in the civil rights movement. Unfortunately, the book contains offensive racial slurs and bad language that some parents find unacceptable for their children.

Daniel Walters has a student in the class taught by John Cronin. “I asked to meet with John Cronin and I wanted to have a conversation about the book with him,” Walters told PJ Media. “I wanted some substance as to what the conversation with the eighth-grade class would be [relating to] the content of the book.” Walters checked the New York curriculum guide and did not find the book there. “I was curious as to why the book was not included with [New York State] ELA Engage, New York curriculum, or why it was not included in the ‘Program of Studies guides,'” said Walters. “We as a nation all agree that the language in that book is offensive and it is wrong to introduce to an eighth-grade class. The school and John [Cronin] should have given parents notice about the scheduled book, this graphic novel.” more here

20 Comments on New York Students Required to Read Dem Rep. John Lewis’ Racially-Provocative Graphic Novel

  1. Man, I thought Wuthering Heights was torture.

  2. Try reading The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky. It’s a great book if you just ignore trying to pronounce all the Russian names.

  3. The book was, most likely, ghostwritten by somebody who could read and write.

  4. What is the status of “Huckleberry Finn” these days?

  5. Just what the world needs, more biographies of morons.

  6. Huckleberry Finn, To Kill a Mockingbird? I am no fan of John Lewis, but if the only argument is that there are scary words then it lacks merit.

  7. Who’s Huckleberry Finn? Didn’t he use the N word a lot back in the 19th century when it was quite common to use that term. And what about “Injun” Joe. Pretty soon all books will be banned since something or some word might provoke an idiot (or a leftist) to think that it’s offensive. Read Fahrenheit 451 again if you don’t think that I’m exaggerating.

  8. It’s just so hard for me to take John Lewis seriously, what with his legacy of slavery and all.

  9. Is there an English version? I don’t know ebonics

  10. Is there an English version? I no speak ebonics

  11. That bozo wrote a book like that bozo Obama wrote a book – or like the Obama Beast wrote a book. All ghostwritten at the behest of puppet masters.

  12. They teach first graders how to read using AOC’s autobiography.

    “Look, look, see Alex lie…”

  13. Going out on a limb here, wasn’t he the ghost writer for ‘Hop on Pop’ and ‘Horton eats a Lude’.

  14. No Blushes: I think he also did “Corn Pop smokes a cracker.”

  15. The novel begins: It be a hot ass day. Ize goin to da stow fo some skittles and purple drank when I hears de sireens started screaming. I sez to me “feets don’t fail me now”
    Dat be all I can think of now.

  16. John Lewis has spent most of his adult life trying to make it appear that he had a major role in the so-called Civil Rights quest! He no more wants Africans to be judged by the content of their character, rather than their race, than Rev Al, Rev Jackson or the majority of Africans do! He is a perfect and qualified candidate for repatriation back to Africa!

  17. His marble is so full of shit his eyes are all swollen up

  18. As long as there aren’t 11s in there, Sheila Jackson Lee should be able to handle it, right?

  19. So you’re saying that Sheila Jackson Lee is so dumb that she can’t count above ten. Don’t ever get her to look at a bar code, it would confuse her to death with all those 1’s and zeros. And she probably thinks that you can divide by zero. If she even knows what division or math is for that matter. She never got past 2 + 2 = 5.
