All this talk about history is not addressing the Arizona issue. The ban is valid. We are not talking about the well read and well educated people that all of you seem to be. We are talking about the masses that are having trouble figuring out who the first President was. Tax funded education is not intended to make some ditsy people feel good about their curly hair; or not for that matter. A little education is a dangerous thing and we need to be sure that the little the masses do get is balanced. Ethnic studies, no matter how true and accurate, do not present valid historical perspectives to base opinions on. If you want to know why your hair is curly, then do your own studying. It should not be up to taxpayers to fund your ethnic feel-good journey.
