OXFORD PRESS PAYS FOR ANTI JEWISH AND HINDU BIAS



California's an advisory body to California’s board of education has taught the snottily biased Oxford University Press an expensive lesson. It rejected a sixth-grade history program that"Hindu and Jewish groups blasted as biased, erroneous and culturally derogatory."

Predictably, the loss of the big order immediately led the Press which began by summarily dismissing concerns to change its tune and to claim it has “misunderstood” the procedure. “We will be reaching out to the Jewish and Hindu organizations that brought up specific issues in our text, so they’ll feel comfortable withdrawing their objections,” Casper Grathwohl, the reference division publisher of Oxford University Press, told JTA after the hearings.

No kidding?
