(National Sentinel) Culture: The deification of Barack Hussein Obama has begun in earnest, as officials at the Jefferson Davis Magnet IB in Jackson, Mississippi, will change the name of the institution to Barack Obama Magnet IB in the 2018-2019 school year.

Why this change, and why now?

“Jefferson Davis, although infamous in his own right, would probably not be too happy about a diverse school promoting the education of the very individuals he fought to keep enslaved being named after him,” said PTA President Janelle Jefferson.

Davis’ student body is 98 percent black.

But why Obama?

Jefferson said the former president “fully represents ideals and public stances consistent with what we want our children to believe about themselves.”

Never mind that Obama’s administration is shaping up to be one of the most corrupt ever, highlighted once more with the breaking news this week that his FBI (and likely him, too) was aware of a host of illegality surrounding the Clintons and Russian operatives over the sale of one-fifth of all strategic U.S.-held uranium to a Russian state nuclear company.

As for the Davis Magnet IB school, it’s got bigger concerns than changing its name to a corrupt president.

An 18-month investigative audit has revealed that Jackson Public Schools, the second-largest district in the state, failed to meet 24 out of 32 accreditation standards.

As a result, the Mississippi Board of Education requested that the district be declared to be in a state of emergency.

But hey, maybe this is just karma: A failing school taking the name of a failed, corrupt president. Sounds about right.
