It seems we’ve reached a new type of nadir in American race relations. The status quo has been threatened. All of this talk about a new majority has roused some sort of fear down in Arizona and it doesn’t seem like that State is enthusiastic about joining the new Post Racial America. And the legislation they’ve been passing this year has made it very clear that they don’t intend on going down without a fight.
Arizona is simply not having it. First, racial profiling a blow against illegal immigration (strike 1). Then, an eradication of ethnic studies (strike 2). And now the Arizona Board of Education is demanding that school districts remove heavily accented teachers from the classroom (strike 3).
