‘YMCA’ act too racist for Fargo first-graders

There’ll be none of this at the Bennett Elementary School in Fargo.

The first-graders were supposed to dress up as a policeman, a cowboy, a biker dude, a construction worker or a Native American to perform the song “YMCA” during a talent show.

But, the Fargo Forum reports, the idea has been scrapped because of a complaint that it’s racist.

But one mom, Elaine Bolman, said asking her daughter and her classmates to dress up like an Indian is offensive.

“I’m not in a position to do anything for these educators, and hopefully those people that are can make the right choices so all students of any culture and race won’t feel singled out or like their race is being stereotyped against,” Bolman said.

Can’t we just teach kids the Chicken Dance?
