North Carolina’s Omar Currie Resigns After Reading Students A Gay Fable | HuffPost #diversity #bannedbooks #books


Wrong on so many levels. North Carolina (and South Carolina if you are aware of today’s news) seem to be having troubles with kindness lately…(my opinion and not passing judgement on every citizen of these states in the USA). 

RALEIGH, N.C.

That decision in April ignited a public outcry from some parents in the rural hamlet of Efland, North Carolina, resulting in Currie’s resignation this week from a job he loved.
