Funny student answer to a short essay question:
Students had to finish the following phrases
1. I still believe...
2. I used to believe, but don't any longer...
3. I know longer believe this because...

One student wrote, "I no longer believe that George Washington was the first person in America. I don't believe this, because I really believe that African-Americans were the first people in America. They were here before anybody."


I almost wrote, I don't believe George Washington was the first person in America either. And what's that about the African-Americans? What happened to the Native Americans?

I laughed really hard at this one.
