Mary Poppins racist says ill-educated US academic.

A US academic has accused the classic feel-good film Mary Poppins of "blacking up" the face of Julie Andrews with soot in a scene in which she dances with chimney sweeps.

Judging by the already low standards of Academia in the US, this guy claiming offence here, beggars belief.

The most worrying thing about this is, people actually believed what he said, to an degree it's being printed online, and even more worrying, is that Daniel Pollack-Pelzner has been trusted to teach our kids.
