Where are the rainbow sheep?

Racism is alive and well in the UK
UK kindergartens bleat about nursery rhyme

Kindergartens in Britain have sparked controversy by changing the lyrics of a traditional nursery rhyme.

Instead of "Baa Baa Black Sheep", toddlers at the kindergartens in Oxfordshire chant "Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep."

Supporters argue the original words alienate and offend young black children.

Parents of the children are understood to be unhappy about the move.

Why racist, you ask? Because this issue is based on race, therefore it's racist.

I think it's frackin' stupid for these retards in the kindergartens to impose these kinds of changes. To protect the children from their blackness, so they're not offended?

Fracking hell, why don't we just go out and wipe out all the black sheep, so that black kids aren't offended by black sheep. Maybe we should put a rainbow coloured roof around the earth, so that we can't see the blackness of the night sky, in case that offends them. Maybe we should eliminate black panthers, black monkeys, black cows... Hell, maybe we should just eliminate the colour black!

Hey, if I'm writing in black type on a white page, would that offend black people?

This is such a huge case of fracked up political correctness, I can't believe it's actually being acted upon.

However, what I really want to know is, where are the rainbow sheep?

I think this is crazy. I agree that PC can go to far some times. Our world is getting so concerned of offending people or getting into trouble that they are doing stupid things. In understand there is a line but this seems to be not where near it. I have a 2 1/2 year old and we listen to the digital kids’ music channel and the version of Baa Baa Black sheep they play as a verse for Baa Baa White sheep in it as well.

Kids very rarely learn racism in school, at least from the teachers, they learn it from the families and friends and these are things we can't stop. I think cases like this only say there is something wrong with being black. This is not solving the problem this is stoking the fire.

I'm happy to say that the school in question has given over to parents' objections, and returned to the 'original' version of the song.

If I can find a link confirming that for you, I'll send it along.
