Baa Baa WHAT sheep ?????????

What a funny world we live. A harmless Nursery Rhyme turns into a major racist learning tool.
What the hell am I talking about you may ask.
Well, the nursery rhyme in question is "Baa Baa Black Sheep". No need to point out the intolerable racist remark in the title. It's now called "Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep". Excuse me while I cough up a lung with laughter, and at the same time, pull out every single strand of hair (whatever is left up there that is) on my head in total bewilderment and frustration, at the absolute stupidity of the clown or clowns that decided that they know what children think or how their logic works.
While I catch my breath. I'm going to let you take in what I have just said.






Ok, that should be enough time to absorb it all.
Now, firstly, the words BLACK SHEEP, do not in any way what so ever refer to anything in the entire universe other than, yep you guessed it a damn black sheep.
The nursery rhyme originated some 900 years ago and was about black sheep's wool, was less useful and worth less. BLAH BLAH BLAH, the story is long and arduous and had nothing what so ever to do with racism, more to the point, try to explain the origin of the nursery rhyme to a toddler.
Now to the most important point of all, children are NOT racist, until they are taught otherwise.
RACISM is NOT a genetic condition, it's a stupid condition. You CANNOT be born racist. It's impossible.
It is a proven fact that children as old as 5 will play with a group of children from all sorts of different cultures, races, different colours, different everything, and they will continue to play with each other until they are told that the child that they are playing with is white, black, green, purple, shorter, taller or what ever the difference is.
When will people learn that there is only one race. That race incase your unaware is simply........

The Human Race.
