Will No One Think of the Children?

From one of our neighborhood newspapers in an article about some re-build money going to a local park:

"Many neighbors expressed concern that Latino kids didn't have adequate soccer fields."

What about the white kids who want to play baseball and cross country ski? What about the black kids who want to play basketball and double dutch? What about the Asian kids who want to play the violin? What about the Native American kids who want to be stoically wise, in touch with nature, and count coups?

C'mon all children want to live out their stereotypes. Why can't we just offer them the space to do so in the park?
