They have an obligation to fight this racially motivated hateful court order, but under the threat of losing funding they desperately need what choice does T.U.S.D. have? Come on federal government, please for once in my life actually take some action without being asked too. Denying high school students the right to learn about ANY culture or ethnic group's history because uh-oh they may have been oppressed and that may look poorly on those that oppressed them is absurd. Hupenthal and gang are claiming it incites violence to learn that white people oppressed non white people in the past? Ummm no sorry buddy this law and everything you have done to force it in our state PROVES that white people are still quite happily oppressing the rights of non whites in our state, it's not history, it's called current events. Big frowny face.
No. It's not supposed to be a political game Maryalice. If it were then the minority would NEVER have a voice in politics. That is why not allowing municipalities to have party primary elections is also a terrible idea, only popular with the bullies known as the GOP. It allows the only choice on some ballots to be between two people representing the SAME party. That's not democracy. It's shameful enough America is a two-party system, it's abhorrent when anyone suggests we should just do away with one of the parties in locales where the majority favor one. A one party system does not a democracy make. Derp a derp derp. This is specifically why, we the voters of AZ, voted to have a independent redistricting committee, to assure ourselves new district lines would not be designed by whatever party happens to have a majority of power at any particular moment. If you allow for that then you eliminate any possibility of a democratic election as you guarantee voters only have one choice, and one party. Seriously, what rock do you liev under that you would dare call having no choice democracy? What world do you live in where it makes sense to allow one party to have complete control, because, "well derp a derp, the majority of voters like that party and so only they count derp a derp derp." Fair elections? Good grief. Super frowny face for you.
