The California education secretary told a little girl her name [Isis] meant "dirty girl."

The democratic state assemblyman, Dymally, threatened a protest because "would he have said that to a white girl?"

The girl is white, with blond hair.

So the protest was withdrawn.

This is weird on many many levels.

Well, at least the child's mother was level headed and handled the matter with grace! The child probably won't ever forget what was said to her but I'm sure her mother's reaction to the man's apology is a very good lesson for her.
