Oh noes, they're teaching history from a different/ignored/glossed over perspective! Somehow this will cause riots and white people will commit suicide en masse.
It shows how bad Americans whitewash their history if the people who think the shit we look down on in modern times, such as the exploitation of immigrant labour and abuse of indigenous peoples, was totally justified then (and would still be now if some of them had their way) believe that just letting the 'brown people' that got swept under the rug tell their story will shatter the American way of life.
In a land that claims to love freedom there's no excuse for censoring your own history. You can learn from the past and the mistakes you made or you can dwell on them in misery and failure. Trying to erase it from your own history won't change the fact that it happened or that some people remember it in less flattering terms than you'd like. Deal with it.

So, studying a culture is degrading yours?. I wonder how America has stood up with such philosophy.

shut the hell up, BITCH!

With Anus Oakley and the Moonbuttholes as examples of "older white people," replacing them with "young black and brown people" sounds not just neutral but a positive good. And I say this as a rapidly aging white person.

If I were to make such statements, they would be:
This is beyond political corruption. These are religious fundamentalists who hate secularism. They also want to destroy the dhamma and replace secularists with religious fanatics.
Mappoo is upon us, o Buddhists and secularists. Join an ikki and fortify compounds.
Thankfully, I do not have such paranoia. This poster should relax and follow the dhamma.
All experience is led by mind, made by mind, proceeded by mind. Speak and act with a hateful mind and suffering follows as the wagonwheel follows the hoof of the ox.
All experience is led by mind, made by mind, proceeded by mind. Speak and act with a peaceful mind and happiness follows like a never-departing shadow.

I have no sympathy for the AZ racists, but not much for the "La Raza" bigots, either. In fact, anyone who thinks that "race" is a useful or scientific way of categorizing humans is pretty much abgeficked.
Who I do have sympathy for is all the Native American Arizonans who have colleges dedicated to preserving what's left of their culture. I hope they defy the law and continue to teach ethnic studies.
Actually, pretty every course that isn't pure mathematics can be viewed as "ethnic studies" in one way or another. If schools stopped teaching English or any foreign languages, any history classes, or law, the AZ legislature might begin to comprehend their mistake.

@nazani14: I would pay money to see an English teacher in Arizona quit their job and cite "but I thought you didn't want ethnic studies programs?"
Can't do it myself, I'd be a decent English teacher but I might want to stay out of Arizona for a while.

Let me guess, you are going to claim that you aren't racist after writing something that is pretty much pure stormfront.
5/14/2011 1:25:15 PM
Um, La Raza isn't a racist name or anything. When people say that it is, it just shows that they're unfamiliar with its origins. The way its used means "the people." That phrase has also been used in literature like " La Raza Cósmica."

Comments section is priceless. A bunch of internet tough guys talking about white supremacy and beating up liberals and "we're at war" and what not only to devolve into a guitar conversation because someone brought up Santana. Hopefully some sweet new songs for white power open mic night at the local coffeehouse will come of this. btw hope they don't play any blues, rock and roll, or anything else unapologetically stolen from minorities.
But then again, what would an open mic night be without a bunch of white guys playing out of tune, choppy blues solos on Squier strats?

Teaching black & Hispanic students about their culture is a racial holy war? Why don't you go down to the schools & colleges and just start blowing away those teachers & students who are starting this race war?
On second thought, don't take me seriously. I know how crazy white folks on the right like to shoot people, and they probably don't need to be prodded to do it.
5/15/2011 1:01:58 PM
This is beyond voting the bastards out. These are demonic sociopaths who hate all people who are not them. They also want to take down the USA and replace rational people with irrational reactionary racist people.
In all seriousness, you, Annie Oakley (if that IS your real name...) are an idiot. Just how racist must these people and their historical predecessors have been in order to make some university professors profess the belief that everything European or "white" is bad, and everything indigenous is good, and that the culture of native peoples should never EVER be interfered with (who cares if said natives have no contact with the outside world and thus have a much lower quality of life in Stone Age conditions? The Prime Directive must not be violated!) I am well aware that not all liberal university professors are like this, but to claim that they are completely nonexistent is also a distortion of the truth. Extremists on both sides are wrong, of course. But considering that those people do in fact exist, one can only imagine just how inexcusably racist the average white European, American, or Australian must have been before the Civil Rights Movement.
See what you did, racists? You ruined everything for everybody!
5/15/2011 3:35:46 PM
It's always entertaining to see racist knuckledraggers acting as they're the sole protectors of their culture, considering they're following a diluted and pre-packaged version of it.

I'm all for replacing the old white men that traditionally run the country.

Non-sequitur. I think i got whiplash from the sudden tangent from subject to comment.

I agree with one sentiment expressed here: Get your metal ready.
5/29/2011 1:33:38 PM
Listen you moonbatshit insane motherfucker, these are regular people looking for a better life, but they can't because people like you force them to take jobs scrubbing toilets and picking strawberries in a hot field for less than minimum wage. If anyone's a sociopath it's you! It's people like you who want to change the U.S. into another nazi germany!

I guess it wasn't enough for some moron to drag Annie Oakley's name through the mud while she was alive, someone else had to do it after she died too.
