School Books to offend no minority: Ravitch: (Language police)

American school books are all gender and race balanced.  No stereotypical roles are allowed. No women in the kitchen, ...

This book describes the regime of censorship that has quietly spread throughout educational publishing in response to pressure groups from both the left and the right. I have sought to document the pervasiveness of this phenomenon by obtaining materials from publishers, testing agencies, state boards of education, and professional associations.

Politically correct black Prince in European fairy tale (There were no negroes in Europe when the fairy tales were written). Note that rarely would one find a blonde prince kissing a black princess. Or a burka clad princess.
[...] 

Initially these practices began with the intention of identifying and excluding any conscious or implicit statements of bias against African Americans, other racial or ethnic minorities, and females, whether in tests or textbooks, especially any statements that demeaned members of these groups. These efforts were entirely reasonable and justified. However, what began with admirable intentions has evolved into a surprisingly broad and increasingly bizarre policy of censorship that has gone far beyond its original scope

When publishers of textbooks and tests conduct bias and sensitivity reviews, these reviews are never released to the public; they are proprietary materials, and they belong to the company. I could not find a publisher willing to release them. State education departments guard the results of their bias reviews with equal zeal,

There are three ways, the guidelines assert, to ensure fairness in testing. One is by “representational fairness,” another is by reviewing “language usage,” and a third is by removing “stereotypes.” In addition, certain inflammatory topics must be avoided. Each of these versions of “fairness” leads the publisher to specify precisely what language and which ideas will be allowed and which will be banned. As I read through the guidelines, I began to understand why the publisher advised us that everything written before 1970 was biased. Few writings before that date could possibly meet the specifications laid out in the guidelines.

Consider the Multicultural Guidelines published by Scott Foresman– Addison Wesley.1 Scott Foresman has long experience in the business of writing bias guidelines. In 1972, it published Guidelines for Improving the Image of Women in Textbooks. In 1990, it created a “multicultural steering committee” to ensure that the company’s editorial products toed that line.
The Scott Foresman–Addison Wesley (SF-AW) bias guidelines comprise 161 pages, longer than most of their counterparts. They lay out a consistent party line for editors, authors, and illustrators. Combining a tone of idealism and authoritarianism, they impose a strict code of political and social correctness. They call for sweeping social and pedagogical changes.
The SF-AW document envisions the creation of a new society composed of “multicultural persons.” These are people who look at others and see not an individual but a person who represents a group; the multicultural person understands that people from each group have distinctive ways of thinking, acting, and believing. Ordinarily, in the world of bias guidelines, the identification of the individual with the characteristics of a group is considered stereotyping. Scott Foresman–Addison Wesley overlooks this inconsistency.
The document is an extended celebration of multiculturalism. It is not about so limited a goal as reducing prejudice and promoting understanding among children from different groups. Multicultural education, it says, is not only about changing the content of textbooks and the attitudes of teachers and students, but about demanding specific pedagogical approaches, such as hands-on projects, self-esteem building, collaborative learning, constructivism, multiple intelligences, and an extensive catalog of other innovations. There is nothing wrong with any of these methods, and no doubt good teachers use some or all of them. But it is inappropriate for a publishing company to tell teachers who prefer other classroom methods that they may be guilty of racial, ethnic, and gender bias.
The SF-AW guidelines require that the company’s products must each contain “a fair and balanced representation” of people from various cultural groups, racial groups, ethnic groups, and religious groups; males and females; older people; and people with disabilities. Not only the characters in the books, but those portrayed in illustrations must be balanced by race, ethnicity, and gender. Authors too must be selected by their gender and race.
 The guidelines say that text illustrations must include people of all physical types, all ages, a mix of tall and short, heavy and thin, including people with disabilities. Although not all groups must be equally represented in every illustration, each book must have a full balance by race, gender, ethnicity, age, and disability. Illustrations must include all varieties of family units, including a family headed by two parents, by one parent, by grandparents, by aunts/uncles, by older siblings, and by other adults. Illustrators must pay close attention to such matters as “skin tones, hair colors and textures, eye colors, and facial features.” Portrayals of diverse members of a multicultural society must be positive and uplifting so that students get a “sense of pride and self-worth.” The guidelines include forty pages of photographs of children from different racial and ethnic groups so that illustrators will know what an African American boy, a Filipino girl, a Latin American boy, or a European American girl of eight to twelve looks like.
The guidelines admonish writers about what they must not say. It is objectionable, writers are warned, to write “Primitive cultures sometimes lack adequate medical care,” because there are no “primitive cultures.” One must not say, “Most Vietnamese are poor peasants,” because such a statement, even if true, is condescending. One must not say, “Mr. Vargas, an agricultural adviser, is part of a life-and-death struggle to bring black Africa into the twentieth century.” Such a statement is biased because black Africa was already in the twentieth century, even if the author intended to say that its agricultural practices were not. It is objectionable for an author to refer to anyone’s language as a dialect; to refer to African tribes rather than African ethnic groups; or to refer to African huts (the dwellings in rural Africa must be described as little houses).
The language code tells how to describe the members of various American Indian groups; they must be identified as specific “nations,” such as Shoshone, Ojibwa, or Choctaw, rather than by the generic term American Indian or Native American. Authors must ask the representatives of the group itself what name they prefer, rather than relying on historical accounts (writers should refer to Kakota, Dakota, or Nakota, not Sioux; to Tohono O’odham, not Papago; to Diné Nation, not Navajo).

Social Engineering by Hollywood & media school books, schools  and Universities, leaves everyone profoundly brainwashed.  They think that 2 dad families are normal, that men should work in the kitchen, that women fight as good or better than men and computer nerds are mostly black.

Almost all "Racists" like us grew up leftist indoctrinated and somehow were de-programmed by seeing the truth, through scientific research,

Books should reflect a diversity of children’s experiences. The picture books on this list challenge gender stereotypes. These titles celebrate the fact that not every child fits into society’s preconceived notion of what it means to be a boy or a girl. I don’t want my kids to grow up feeling limited by their gender. Kids need to know that if they prefer diggers to ballet slippers or knitting to baseball, it doesn’t matter if they are boys or girls. Children need to take pride in what they do and learn to accept that the diversity of their peers’ experiences and identities.
