Friday Dead Racist Blogging: Education Edition

God wanted the white people to live alone. And He wanted colored people to live alone....We do not believe that God wants us to live together....Do you know that some people want Negroes to live with white people? These people want us to be unhappy. They say we must go to school together. They say we must swim together and use the bathroom together. God has made us different. And God knows best. Did you know that our country will grow weak if we mix?

According to Phyl Newbeck's Virginia Hasn't Always Been for Lovers, this was found in a 1950's Mississippi textbook for third- and fourth-graders.

Even though this isn't really as bad as some other things I've read, it disturbed me like nothing else has.
