And on every page there is a picture with a black person whose arm is around an asian person whose arm is around a hispanic person and they are all dressed like they're from the 80's.

There's always a black kid, an asian girl, two white kids, a mexican kid and then a ginger in a wheelchair. Always.

Every fifth page in a school textbook has a kid in a wheelchair just so they don't "offend" anyone, amirite?

Dear textbook companies, stop trying to damn hard to keep all the pictures racially correct. Not every group of kids have a black boy, a kid in a wheelchair, a white girl, and an indian. .. you're just making it worse. amirite?

The OP is contrasting the # of real children in wheelchairs to the number of ones in textbooks. These are not the same.
