Re: “TUSD Banning Books? Well Yes, and No, and Yes

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?

Re: “The Grill and Red Room Set to Close Tuesday Night

Ha! That's what they get for refusing to put cheese on my tots for nearly 2 decades. Vengeance is mine!
