Discouraging Invention

I found this particularly saddening.  Not because of the obvious racial implications or poorly managed educational facilities, but because of what it does to the boy.  I know what it’s like to get excited about making something and then get weird looks from people about it.  I think that one of the worst injustices in the world is discouraging a child from doing something great and unique.  The world would be a better place if people were encouraged to explore things that they enjoy, especially if it’s for the betterment of society.
