Yeh – Just Like Seating in a Lot of Theaters in Dallas Used to be Limited to Whites

The punchline:

A spokesman for the Dallas schools says only the boys were taken because space in the theater was limited.

The non-joke preceding it?

A field trip for 5,700 fifth-grade boys in Dallas to see a movie about black fighter pilots in World War II has some questioning why the girls weren’t included.

The boys were taken Thursday to see “Red Tails,” a new movie about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first black pilots to serve in the U.S. military. The girls stayed in classroom and watched “Akeelah and the Bee” about an 11-year-old girl who competed in a national spelling bee.

Well, all I have to say is…

Uhh…

Ya know?

I got nothin’.

Of course, maybe the girls should be glad the Texas Republican primary isn’t any closer.  If it was, then perhaps, as a campaign stunt, Newt Gingrich would have persuaded the school district to have them all do janitorial work while the boys were watching the movie.

    Perfectly understandable. Like “Vic”, they were just “concerned” they might might stray from the places envisioned for them & end up insufficiently deferential to their intrinsic betters.

    Kat – please spell transmisogyny. And yes – I can use it in a sentence tor you.
