Good morning Blog Posse,
I...cannot sleep! This normally makes me cranky!
So...I thought, "What else makes me cranky, maybe that will cancel out the previous crankiness."
Lately, any mention of the asshatery in Arizona makes me quite cranky so I looked at that...I dub this THE INSOMNIA BILL
Sigh. I wish ethnic studies out side of "confederate history" was taught at any of the schools I attend or ever will attend.
PHOENIX -Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill targeting a school district's ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure.
Public schools should not be encouraging students to resent a particular race, he said.
"It's just like the old South, and it's long past time that we prohibited it," Horne said.
Brewer's signature on the bill Tuesday comes less than a month after she signed the nation's toughest crackdown on illegal immigration — a move that ignited international backlash amid charges the measure would encourage racial profiling of Hispanics. The governor has said profiling will not be tolerated.
Yeah but you signed the bill didn't ya?
The measure signed Tuesday prohibits classes that advocate ethnic solidarity, that are designed primarily for students of a particular race or that promote resentment toward a certain ethnic group.
The Tucson Unified School District program offers specialized courses in African-American, Mexican-American and Native-American studies that focus on history and literature and include information about the influence of a particular ethnic group.
