Precious Knowledge

Lots of things going on in Arizona right now.  We have Minuteman Shawna Forde’s trial for the murder of 9-year-old Brisenia Flores and her father (which got weirder when known white-supremacist Laine Lawless showed up in disguise).  We have Pearce and friends introducing not one, but four bills targeting the 14th amendment.   And we have the ethnic studies ban that is now in effect.

I didn’t have the opportunity to take ethnic studies until I got to college, but it was important to me and I know  it’s important to these kids too.  Students of color should have the right to learn history from their peoples’ perspectives; it is empowering to see where we come from.  What are we so afraid of?
