Check out this election spam I got in the mail today, in support of the $35/person art tax that the city is proposing:
Wait, art teachers would make a bunch of kids disappear? Is that a reason to be voting FOR this proposal???
(Of course, note how racially diverse PPS kids seem to be! Out of ten kids, only two appear to be white. One wonders where in Portland you could come even close to such a distribution of students, given the city's demographics: 76% white, 9% Latino (of any race), 7% Asian-American, 6% African-American, and 10% mixed or other race. I get that it's important to show that PPS values diversity, but when it's this unrealistic it just comes across as heavy-handed. Much like this art tax itself.)
