Today I found a petition going around to "Keep Ariel White." How should I address my students in letting them know this is NOT okay!
Diversity is what makes us awesome!

I would use this as a multicultural education teaching point. Try using some literature.

I would bring this up to your students and let them know how inappropriate that is. Explain that mermaids, although they are not real, are not all one race just like we are not. You could tie in literature to this and show the different portrayals of other popular characters too.

I would talk to them and let them know that everyone is different and thats perfectly okay! No one wants to live in a perfect world and if we didnt have diversity it would not make life as fun and enjoyable as it is!

I would explain how important diversity and culture are. I would also discuss the fact that mermaids are not real and therefore any disagreement of their race is not valid because they don't exist, so the race of the actor or actress playing them should not anger students. Having a multicultural classroom involves respect and while it may be a little uncomfortable at times, it creates opportunities for growth and education. While students have the right to free speech, as a teacher, it is also your job to teach them to be kind and inclusive and respectful, and that means watching what they say. Good luck!
