    Whenever that is the case, I agree that it is a problem. Education should be about finding truth, not about imposing philosophies.

    Banning programs that "promote the overthrow of the US government." My god, Arizona's legislature is made up of tinfoil hat wearers.

    It's to stop the separating of people based on their race, and to start treating everyone as Americans and individuals. This is a concept that you would think would appeal to the left... that is, if they actually practiced what they preached.

    And how do you determine that this class was designed for a particular group? Is there an admission requirement?

    Actually, I don't have a problem with promoting individuality. This is just an odd way to do it.

    What took you so long to try and change the subject?

    You must be slipping. You need to re-read the communist manifesto and brush up on progressive evasion tactics

    All you have to do is look at groups like the Rainbow Coalition and La Raza to understand the results that ethnic study courses have.

    So, you think these groups are the results of ethnic study courses?

    Would these people otherwise feel no strong loyalty to their ethnic groups?

    No, they are basically ethnic study groups for adults. They, just like the courses in schools, say they are all about heritage and pride, but we all know they promote racial divide.

    You don't need an ethnic study class to have pride for your families heritage. That is something learned from parents, and should stay that way. This is America, and public schools should teach everyone as Americans, not as Mexican-Americans, African-Americans, etc...

    All these ethnic study classes have accomplished in the last 30 years or so, is to further divide people based on race. It's time for it to stop. We are all Americans, and that's the approach our schools should take when designing their curriculum.

    How would banning these classes change this than if it is going to happen anyway? Did you mean to rhyme?

    What do you base this belief on?
