" Arizona the Whites Only State"
Face it, schools just want your children only to learn about dead lily, white Europeans as if the world was invented by them, and as if they created this universe. What are the other kids supposed to think? We should have one curriculum for all kids, and that should be to include all great thinkers from all over the world of every color, not just white, to give everybody a sense of human pride. For some reason Arizona and their Governor is more committed to abolishing anything that is non-white.
The point of public education should be "to teach everyone the same curriculum",which includes non-white people's contributions as well. It's easy for white folks to say that we should eliminate all ethnic studies programs when their ethnicity is dominant. The Ethnic classes success is based on inculcating a sense of pride in one's history and culture.
Is the governor using the right rationale by depriving non-white kids of a program that gives them a sense of identity and pride. Go to any major U.S. city and you will find Little Chinas, Italys, Russias, Israels, Egypts etc ... You can't--and shouldn't--suppress people's connection to their heritage and history.
I also think it's disingenuous to call for the abolition of ethnic/cultural studies programs when the kids in those classes are being bombarded with white culture every single day non-stop. I wonder when she plans to sign a Eugenics law? How long before they go all the way, and just outlaw non-whites?
Making laws and banning is and attempt to humiliate and denegrate these people simply because they are hispanic/Latino. I knew it wouldn't be long before they start whitewashing history again. I mean come on now, Texas is already trying to rewrite history and they have deleted all minorities out of the new version. Therefore, only white folks exist, all others are non-existent, noncontributers, and we people of color are a figment of our own imagination.
Well...next,I guess, Arizona and Texas will put up their "whites only" signs. In essence, they already have with this new law and revisionist books. This is just a modern version of "whites only" if your peel the accessories off it and take a good look at it. It's time to boycott Arizona, and I wouldn't even drive through there, especially, if you not white.

Questions From A Black Woman's Journey
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
