Excuse me, but if I were in my own country and I'd make a stand against the US imperialism I'd be hanged by the very government you support.
So until you figure out what you are talking about. Until you figure out the scope of this problem, you pretty much will remain clueless.
Thats rich. My government would hang you for standing you against them in YOUR country? Dude, you forgot your meds this morning. So what country are you from Zamini? Would it be one of those that cuts off both your hands for stealing? Or perhapes one of them that makes you marry off your 6 year old daughter to a 45 year old prince? I hope you dont cut easily because you sure are breaking all your glass....edit on 16-6-2011 by DerbyCityLights because: (no reason given)

the American government was the root of the problems and evils!
Why do you think Mexico is not responsible for its own problems and America is to blame?

This is outrageous. They will not fund a program that promotes hatred. There is no way that the tax payers of this country should be funding an educational program that promotes racial solidarity of any group, which only seeks to further isolate them from the mainstream of society.
How about a program that teaches real modern Mexican history? Lets talk about the real reasons that Mexico, though thick with natural resources is a failed state.
Teach the kids why so many folks want to leave Mexico in the first place. Teach them about the systemic corruption, the violence, massive poverty, the nepostism in government and the private sector, the integration of the cartels and all branches of the government.
Teach them about the racism towards Central Americans rampant in Mexico.
Let them learn the full story, not this agtiprop which is only meant to solidify a political voting base and play towards liberal, multi-cultural elites and race baiters.
If these folks are so interested in providing a rich learning environment where Latinos can learn about their heritage, teach them all of their history.
What should be the question, is why are they not learning about their culture in their own home, and why is it the tax payer that has to pay to teach them something that they should already know about?
Consider this, if they are of a Hispanic heritage, having Hispanic parents, would it not be best for them to learn about their culture from a first hand source, rather than a book?
Are parents so out of touch with their children, that they are afraid to teach their children anything?
If the students are in a school, in a country, then learn about that country, learn what it is to be a citizen of that country and only that country for the primary education.
Cultural studies should be a part of a language course, as part to teach a student, but not what is coming out from Arizona, and especially the TUSD.
What they are teaching is not cultural heritage
but rather it is racism pure and simple, or rather reverse racism, to teach young impressionable minds to hate the very country that is giving them an education, and we the people are paying for it.
For myself, when my own children and those nieces and nephews want to learn about our heritage and culture, it is done at home, to where they are learning first hand what it is to be apart of a culture, and where their ancestors come from. It is very specific, but never with hatred and prejudice that would be seen in some of the groups out there.
What is really how funny about the entire Hispanic culture that claims that the USA stole their lands fail to study history and realize that the land was paid for and the US, after the Mexican American war, the US also paid for reparations to the government of Mexico. And there were parts of Mexico that was paid for as well, like the Gadson purchase. Given for inflation that is trillions of dollars that went to Mexico, so how is that stealing from their people? And those living here at the time, were granted automatic citizenship, in the USA. So how is that hatred or racism to teach that?
Excellent reply! Other cultures have assimilated and are proud of being American and are respectful of our laws.
