One of the rap songs "Old Dead White Men" chronicles the shortcomings of the early leaders in the United States.

Of President James Monroe's tenure, the rap says: "White men getting richer than Enron./ They stepping on Indians, women and blacks./ Era of Good Feeling doesn't come with the facts."

The Oklahoma City School Board authorized the district to spend up to $97,000 in federal funds on the program.

why am i not surprised that the panda would think this is just fine and dandy

after all, ebonics-laden dirges demeaning those who wrote the nation's founding documents as 'old dead white men' are unquestionably the best way to teach our wayward youth an appreciation of the founding fathers and American history.

School House Rock, the ABC song, it's like that but at a high school level? That is a problem. Life isn't going to sing to them, if they can't be taught to learn, think, and reason without a crutch by the time they graduate they are doomed anyway. Teaching them a few bits of info, rap style, isn't going to do them any good.

One can't really blame Blacks and Indians if they are not overly impressed with the early US

Those are quite sophisticated HipHop lyrics by the way, or did I just overlook the motherf* part?
