Arizona! Motto: Za Dom Spremni!

We're coming to you from the Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words Department today. The PIWATW Department is a division of the It's Not Washout, I'm Really That White Corporation in partnership with This Is A Face Only Stormfront Could Love, LLC.

We told you recently about Arizona's confusion regarding the nature of the Federal Race to The Top program. They thought it was Race On the Top and hence have been passing white's only legislation faster than chaw disappears at a NASCAR race.

Their latest effort in the competition is a bill to outlaw ethnic studies--unless that ethic is white that is.
Arizona governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill targeting a school district's ethnic studies program, hours after a report by United Nations human rights experts condemned the measure.
Apparently, being condemned by human rights experts was just the push the bill needed to make it over the top, right State Schools Chief Tom Horne?

Horne, a Republican running for attorney general, said the program promotes ethnic chauvinism. "If there's going to be any race that gets to be chauvinists, it's going to be us," Horne said.

The measure doesn't prohibit classes that teach about the history of a particular ethnic group, as long as the course is open to all students and doesn't promote ethnic solidarity or resentment. "We want all ethnic groups to feel welcome in Arizona," Horne said. "As long as they're polite and know their place."

Which brings us back to the subject of our little epistle today. How could you not feel welcome in Arizona when you see this face signing yet another discriminatory, racist law onto the books:

I love your blog, I just don't know if my stomach can take all the truth :P I'll toughen up, your sarcasm helps.

Where do we live again? I feel like I am in a bad dream.
