Haha! Glad to see some wingnut tears in the comments. REALLY glad to see some funding for our messed up roads!
T'ije Pachano, you have perfectly encapsulated the reactionary attitude that gave rise to this debacle.
You ask, "Would you support an "ethnic studies" class that was catered to Caucasians and had a politically-charged theme designed to celebrate Caucasian heritage?"
The point is, "Caucasian studies" is exactly what most kids are forced to learn in school. We learned a sanitized version of the exploits of the white settlers of this nation. Nearly all of the American history we in the southwest learned took place east of the Mississippi! Why shouldn't people - many of who's roots here go back generations before the US purchased the land from Mexico - be allowed to learn THEIR OWN history?
Ha! That's what they get for refusing to put cheese on my tots for nearly 2 decades. Vengeance is mine!
