“4th of July Needs Some Pazaz! Not History!”

How far from institutionalized racism have we come in America? Well, you’d think a 4th of July parade in Huntington Beach would be miles away from any controversy:

Organizers of Surf City’s Fourth of July parade said Wednesday they would let the producer of the documentary chronicling the 1947 Mendez v. Westminster school-desegregation case take part this year.

Parade officials reversed a decision to deny Sandra Robbie’s application for her Magical History Tour bus on grounds that it lacked entertainment value.

I suppose the American Revolution, which is what the holiday is about, was chocked full of entertainment value, too. What with people dying for . . . you know, freedom.
