George Washington High School to Cover Up George Washington Mural

There's no room for Columbus Day in Columbus, Ohio. Or for George Washington in George Washington High School.

There’s plans in the works to cover a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School in San Francisco due to complaints that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African Americans.

The San Francisco school board is expected to decide next week whether to cover the image or paint over it, but there’s no plans among top officials to leave the imagery in the open for students to view, according to several Bay Area news reports.

The three options before the board are to obscure the mural with curtains, create acoustic panels to cover it up, or paint over it; each option would cost anywhere from 300,000 to $800,000 to complete, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

This should be followed by a book burning of any volumes about George Washington and any history books featuring him.

Followed by the renaming of the school to something inoffensive, like Vladimir Lenin High School.

Who won the Cold War again?
