Tipps Elementary School in Houston, TX is requiring all of their Kindergarteners learn an Obama poem to celebrate Black History month.
Some of the poem is quite political. Here is an excerpt:

Obama’s famous slogan is Yes we can
Who do we know is the man?
Barack Obama is the man
He’s our man, Yes we can!
Who won a Grammy for “Dreams of my Father”?
Obama won a Grammy for “Dreams of my Father”?
Now can you guess who’s a famous author
Barack Obama is a famous author…
What is the response by Sylvester Brown at Houston’s Black Heritage Society?
“I don’t think you can look at it from that side unless you’re specifically looking for something to complain about.”
