Native American and Chicano books banned in Tuscon
Seriously, the Tuscon school board banned books by Native Americans and Chicano authors. Among such authors are Buffy Saint Marie, Winona LaDuke and Leonard Peltier.
Apparently they decided not to fight an Arizona law banning books ‘not part of Greco-Roman culture.’
The man behind the law is one Tom Horne, the State Attorney General. Apparently Mr. Horne believes in “a civilizational war.” Mexican and Native Americans are “not based on Greco-Roman knowledge and thus, lie outside of Western Civilization.”
I wonder how long it’s going to take a federal court to smack this down?
