A reminder of how unreasonable and racist Latinos were in 2011 Arizona

cropped-TSON.jpg

At the beginning 2011, the winners of last year’s election were sworn in, which included all the statewide elected offices in Arizona, from governor down to state superintendent. They were all minorities and would attempt to enslave the white people in 2011. Jan Brewer, Tom Horne, Ken Bennett, John Huppenthal, Russell Pearce, John McCain, all the top leaders of Arizona and oppressing the white people since they are all Latinos. Racism requires a group that is in power to use their power against other races. Don’t confuse prejudice and racism. Latinos and blacks cannot use their power as the poorest […]

HB2281 viral connections come full-circle in Sugiyama’s appointment to TUSD board

cropped-TSON.jpg

HB2281 was the third attempt from the AZ legislature to ban Ethnic Studies. One of the attempts was actually part of a homeland security bill that declared Ethnic Studies a threat to this nation. The only thing stopping these bills was Janet Napolitano, the governor of the state with veto power who left us after President Obama got elected. After Jan Brewer came into office, the floodgate of xenophobia and racism was released upon the state. HB2281 was written by Tom Horne, and he has admitted that it was targeted at stopping the MAS program in TUSD. He admits that […]

Hicks demands Pedicone immediately eliminate Mexican American Studies

cropped-TSON.jpg

Dear Federal Judge Tashima, You were wondering about how the Republican leaders in our state and city would react to HB2281, and if they really would try to ban Ethnic Studies as fast as possible? You have probably already seen John Huppenthal’s press release saying he will stick with his original ban. Now you have more leaders who are using the bill that makes Ethnic Studies illegal to say that we need to eliminate the program immediately because it is illegal because of the new state law banning them. Circular reasoning indeed, but I’m betting they want to destroy MAS […]

Carolyn’s Community has more on the new TUSD board member here. What TUSD needs is more economists. You know, the super-smart people that brought down our economy with their abuse of mathematics. The people who think about numbers and not people. People that think more about 10% cuts than the students under attack. You know how great Mark Stegeman has been, so now we have two of him as his Economics lecturer colleague Alexandre Sugiyama joins him to replace Judy Burns on the TUSD board. Talk about replacing Burns with a polar opposite. Now it won’t just be two white […]

Why Ethnic Studies in Tucson will prevail and reveal the modern-day racists

cropped-TSON.jpg

There was once a time in this country when slavery and segregation were legal. If you tried to appeal to the local judge for your freedom, his hands were tied and back to the plantation and your master you go. Or to the back of the bus you went. Not all who were silent on the issue were racists. Not all slave-owners were racist. It was a legal use of free labor in a capitalistic system. And then we evolved and realized how wrong it was what we were doing, but we still have a long ways to go. The […]

“If not now, then never” – new motto for 2012

cropped-TSON.jpg

If not now, then never It’s my new motto for the 2012 year, which I consider already here, beginning at the winter solstice a few days ago. Last year the Si Se Puede movement took on the most powerful man in Arizona, the Senate President Russell Pearce who had a super-majority veto-override power to get bills passed without the governor. He had powerful groups behind him, including the hate group FAIR and ALEC giving him legislation that benefits the 1% and enslaves the immigrants and people that look like them (aka “reasonably suspicious”). Not even the Democratic party believed Pearce […]
