George Washington Is Traumatizing

I doubt the people claiming to be traumatized even notice George when they pull out a buck and a quarter, so forgive me if I find their claims to be a little, uh, manufactured.  But here we go in Cali-unicornia, where every culture is valued except the one that made us the greatest place to live in the world:
A high school in Northern California — George Washington High School, to be specific — is mulling over a push to remove two 83-year-old murals from its hallways. Critics advocating for their removal say they are offensive to Native Americans and African-Americans. They say the pair of panels “traumatizes students and community members.”
Former US Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings once said what I consider to be the appropriate response to these people, whether they're actually traumatized or not:  "Put your big girl panties on and deal with it."
