FARGO, N.D., May 14 (UPI) --A North Dakota elementary school will not be allowing the young men and women in a first-grade class to perform YMCA at a talent show because a parent dubbed the planned performance "racist."

Students at Bennett Elementary School in Fargo were supposed to sing the famous Village People song during a May talent show.

That is SO LAME. Would the kids still be able to do the song if they didn't dress up?
I wonder if that one mother who screamed racism was actually a homophobe herself since all the members of The Village People were gay.
The way things are going there will always be someone who is offended by something. When it comes down to the kids only being allowed to sit in their chairs with their heads on the desks I'm going to be offended because kids should be allowed to be kids !
Give us a break.

Another low has been reached for this country. The child of that woman is going to grow up as warped as her mother.
