A son of a former McHenry County resident wrote this on his Facebook page yesterday:
“[My daughter] told me a story today that had me laughing and thinking.
“Her school was conducting a multicultural education session for the entire school during an assembly.
“The guest speakers were Africans from Kenya (I think).
“During their presentation two of Beau’s friends/classmates were goofing around.
“The two boys involved were both African American/ Black.< "A White teacher confronted the boys and told them to pay attention, saying, 'This is YOUR culture!' "Beau's friend responded to the teacher saying, 'I'm not African and I don't know anything about Kenya. I'm an American.' "BOOM!! "He's right. "Skin color and culture are totally different."
