Wasn't It That Black Guy?

True conversation:

Student One: Who's Abraham Lincoln?
Student Two: He was the president who freed the slaves.
Student Three: I thought that was Martin Luther King.
Student Four, later, in another conversation: Wasn't it that black guy who freed the slaves?

If Lincoln could see into the future and observe this discussion among high school students, he might have put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger himself. For any of you who are similarly tempted, please, don't. If you possess the awareness to be disturbed by this, our society cannot afford to lose you.
