Banning ‘Jingle Bells’ in school

There is no end to censorship in public schools these days.  An elementary school in upstate New York banned ‘Jingle Bells’ from the school’s holiday show because of its ties to 19th century blackface minstrel shows (“Backlash after school banned ‘Jingle Bells’ over Christmas,” New York Post, Jan. 2).

We have become too sensitive to anything even remotely tied to slavery.  The song is a harmless tradition, but cancel culture demands that it be eliminated lest it cause harm to children. I wonder where censorship will finally end.
