    I truly don't understand this one. The mural depicts actual students at the school. Why is this being tolerated?

    Hard to know much from one online article and no photo of the mural in question.

    The picture is on the far right of the article that dflemings posted.

    Here's another article with the same picture but it can be clicked on to enlarge the picture.

    In the mural, there is a lighter shade of paint being painted on the child's forehead.

    Absolutely not buying the "artistic" excuse...and Blair, the radio personality, is a real gem. :rolleyes:

    Hmmm...I think they need a layer of my peach-colored vomit.

    Racial diversity offends a lot of people. That's not new, and I'm definitely not surprised.

    And I'm definitely not surprised that it occurs in Arizona, which did not celebrate MLK Day for quite a long time, and which is the home of the new immigration law that takes a person's skin color into consideration.

    (Mind you, I am not commenting on the people of Arizona in general. As a Texan, I am aware that state governments do not always represent everyone's opinion.)
