1949 SUPERMAN POSTER ABOUT PATRIOTISM IS SO RELEVANT TODAY

Let’s try to remember lessons we learned more than a half century ago.  Look at what Superman told us so many years ago.

Superman is lecturing students about patriotism, telling them to respect members of all races, creeds, and religions

The poster shows Superman telling school students about the real meaning of being an American.  He emphasizes the importance of respecting all people regardless of race or religion. As Matt Nedostup points out in his post, however,”looks like it didn’t work. With major presidential candidates advocating for deporting immigrants and closing the door on refugees in a way not seen since before WWII, it’s almost like we’ve taken a step backward. ”  C’mon folks.  We can do better than that.  Let’s all do our part.  Tell Donald Trump to act like Superman!

Also, take a look at what Robert Reich had to say about the meaning of patriotism.
