There are times I really feel a sense of despair due to all the hand-wringing, politically correct, totalitarian wimps out there.
This story takes the cake: a British government-funded agency working to prevent racism in young children warns that preschoolers who turn up their noses at spicy or unfamiliar foods are engaging in a form of racism.
In an agency guidebook, nursery school teachers are warned about young children who "react negatively to a culinary tradition other than their own by saying 'yuk.'"
This could indicate "a reaction to a food associated with people from a particular ethnic or cultural community."
Nursery schools are encouraged to report as many of these "racist" incidents to their local councils as possible...no doubt so that the little ones can be "re-educated."
British taxpayers are paying for this dreck to be published...and acted on.
How Orwellian, for preschoolers to risk being reported to the government if they're picky eaters.
There just aren't words...
