I'm also glad to hear "multi-cultural" units. I prefer
that term. Whenever anyone talks about bi-racial they always seem to
mean Black/White. There are a lot of us out there who fall under
bi-racial and are not of those to mixes. Art seems to be the one place
that will cover all different cultures. In this day in age it shouldn't
be but Art may be the only place where kids might learn about other
people other than themselvesor their own culture. how boring we would
all be if were all the same.
