Arizona Governor bans ethnic studies program Brewer approved a bill late Tuesday, promoted by the state's schools boss, Tom Horne, who has said that the program run by the Tucson school district promotes a "destructive ethnic chauvinism." Tucson school officials have insisted the program only aims to provide students with courses about the role of minorities in historical events such as the Vietnam war or literature courses featuring Latino authors. The bill signed by Brewer on Tuesday prohibits any classes which promote the overthrow of the United States government, promote resentment toward a race or class of people, or are tailored for pupils from a particular racial group. Interesting. Of course, if minority studies are allowed, then so are WHITE studies, right? The left wants to have it both ways: ethnocentric is fine for blacks and Hispanics, but bad when whites do it. This bill at least denies them that.
