RP censorship deep to tiniest level: Ron Paul quote obscured in elementary school yearbookSubmitted by SC Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ on Wed, 05/02/2012 - 13:17
I never told this because it was so disappointing to me.
I submitted a photograph of my daughter with Ron Paul to the annual yearbook collection during her 5th grade year (2 years ago). The school was taking $$'s for an entry of your child's picture and some wording to go along. I paid the $$'s and awaited the printing.
When my daughter got home with the yearbook, I was crestfallen. The photograph was there but Ron Paul's quote was printed on such a dark background, the lettering can only be read when tilting the page into the light (scanning also brings the lettering to light, see scan).
None of the other children's background's were so dark you could not read the wording.
In some ways I felt screwed because I paid for the wording. Perhaps some may say this sort of thing is "too heavy" for the kids and I was dumb to do it anyway. Maybe, but I don't feel that way about it. If it was so, that the quote was offensive, why did they take my $$'s, why wouldn't they have just told me that they needed different wording?
I just wanted to share today because I felt moved to share this tiniest censorship with you in hopes that someone that is not believing "our conspiracy theories regarding RP censorship" will ask themselves how much farther you can go than to not care if you hurt an excited, proud elementary school child?
The scan looks great believe me, in person you simply cannot read the wording unless you tilt and trap the wording in a particular light. Besides the burying of Ron Paul's quote, also totally eliminated was the additional wording of "Ivy, it can never be said that you did nothing"....so it really hurt me as a Mother.

Just wanted to get that off my chest, thanks for listening.
