Arizona Pass Laws II

Sometimes a cartoon can capture more.

The quest to make Arizona white again continues unabated. See Arizona Law Targets Ethnic Studies for more racist lunacy from Arizona legislators.

It seems House Bill 2281, signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer on May 11, seeks to "eliminate Mexican-American Studies and all ethnic studies programs in Arizona public schools."

In so doing the HB 2281 would cut any reference to Latino(a)/Hispanic history and heritage out of education.

The Bill states:
“A School District or Charter School in this state shall not include in its program of instruction any courses or classes that include any of the following:

• Promote the overthrow of the United States government.

• Promote resentment toward a race or class of people.

• Are designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group.

• Advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.”
Are these folks just losing the plot or is whiteness fighting with all its might to just stay relevant in a browning America?

They should just pass a law forcing all Latino/as (Hispanics) to become white.

I wonder what Obama is doing now?

What is the big deal about studying other ethnic groups that scares white folk so much? I believe it is the mentality of fear that they have in being treated like they have treated others. Thus, they must again put down the racist screws in order to protect their race. However, there is no solidarity amongst white folk to "protect" each other as much as their is solidarity in attacking those who are not white.
