Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill targeting a school district’s ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure.

State schools chief Tom Horne, who has pushed the measure for years, said Tuesday that a Tucson school district program promotes “ethnic chauvinism” and racial resentment toward whites while segregating students by race.

“It’s just like the old South, and it’s long past time that we prohibited it,” Horne said.

How many things are wrong with this? First, let’s state the obvious, ethnic STUDIES in no way equal to SLAVERY.

Second, his reasoning:
Horne said he believes the Mexican-American studies program teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people. Public schools should not be encouraging students to resent a particular race, he said.

No, but your local media sure can, and so can your state government, all within “reasonable suspicion” of course.

The district is 56 percent Hispanic, with nearly 31,000 Latino students.
