>_The parent proposed a committee made up of parents and teachers of different cultural backgrounds come up with a list of books that are inclusive for all students._
Where’s the [ACLU](https://www.aclu.org/issues/free-speech/artistic-expression/banned-books)? They’d be right there if this was an alt-right’er asking to ban books with salacious content they deem (rightly or wrongly) “inappropriate” or “harmful” to teens. I hope they step up and fight the fight the good fight here.
We’re rapidly losing — or may have already lost (as a society) — the concept of building resilience & strength through adversity. I’m hopeful that the diversity we bring into this country with immigrants and refugees (if the borders don’t close shut or we scare them away) that know what true adversity is will eventually counteract this downward spiral.
