After the racist Huppenthal she could have done no less.
MAS ran for decades and the only result was a much higher high school graduation rate for Hispanic students enrolled in that program than for Hispanic students not enrolled. Plus, more of those enrolled went to college than those not in MAS.
Side note: some people fear these classes because they think the USA will be overthrown and Arizona returned to Mexico by MAS students. This is, I think, a stupid argument designed to deflect the real reason for wishing to suppress these classes. Those wanting their elimination also want to eliminate all Southern Arizona cultures but the Anglo culture.
Southern AZ has a rich multicultural history dating back thousands of years. Instead of trying to suppress and eradicate it all political parties should embrace it because:
1) It's fair. They were here first.
2) It enriches our lives. Viewing your own culture through another can give you a wealth of understanding as to its benefits and disadvantages.
3) Uniqueness sells. People come here and leave here with exposure to many different cultures which give them a distinct advantage over your regular homogeneous person.
If Southern AZ capitalized on its history and multicultural society instead of trying to suppress it we could be the jewel in the crown of the western USA.
This is why we need a larger board a Pima County Senate that way one flipped out person could be ignored.
In some places, candidate friendly judges would stop the voting. So either the McSally contingent has no judges in their pocket or they didn't bother and are bluffing because they knew they would lose a court fight.
Seems McSally lacks good sportsmanship.
And people scoffed when I wrote many Republicans seem to want an Anglo cultural hegemony in AZ?
First, Huppenthal's outrageous online comments ripped the lid off their racism now Thomas' ad serves it to us on a silver platter.
