Arizona: It Gets Worse

Arizona: It Gets Worse

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? 


Independent media has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies.   Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook.  Never before has independent media been more endangered.  If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
