White Privilege was on full display this week at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco this past Monday, January 12th, 2015 as the State of Arizona defended its Ethnic Studies Ban law that was being challenged by two Chicanas, Maya Arce and Korina Lopez, from TUSD.
Dennis Gilman went to Oracle recently when white supremacists were going to protest children refugees that would be housed in a youth camp nearby and he captured both sides of the story. His video is above.
There he goes again, that darn Three Sonorans playing the race card again…
I made a comment on Facebook yesterday:
Trying to shoot down MAS classes and not looking in the mirror to see what in American culture causes mass shootings…
and immediately was met with complaints that the Colorado shooting has nothing to do with race or MAS.
My point was that we focus so much on the danger of Chicanos learning their history when the real threat comes from crazy Americans with very easy access to guns, but that is besides the point for now.
Does the Colorado Dark Knight shooting have anything to do with race? For those who know about Critical Race Theory and view events and issues through that special lens, the answer is interesting either way. If it does have to do with race, then that discussion can continue.
But I want to consider the opposite; what if the shooting has nothing to do with race? This is actually where things get interesting.
How to describe tonight’s actions with so much emotion?
I’ll let the video above convey emotion, and I will stick to the facts here.
The TUSD board meeting was to start at 6pm. About 5:40 the doors were opened. Around 5:50 is when the students took over the board seats. The rest of the crowd immediately filled the board room.
