Arizona: It Gets Worse

by
Abby Zimet

Arizona's purging of brown-skinned residents continues apace with two
new moves: It has decided to remove any teachers whose spoken English is
heavily accented or ungrammatical - almost half the teachers in some
school districts are native Spanish speakers - and to curb a popular
ethnic studies program in Tucson by banning
any courses advocating ethnic solidarity or designed primarily for one
ethnic group. Racist much?
