I guess “Christian
 
Conservative”
racist republicans in Texas, as in Arizona,
areafraid that our school children will find out from history books, that:
#1:
 
their
“heroes,”
Stephen Austin, James Bowie and other
TRAITORS
 
renounced theirAmerican citizenship and became Catholic MEXICAN CITIZENS
,
in exchange forland
.
#2:
 
They want to “white
-
wash” several hundred years of Mexican, Black
and Oriental culture and history from the Southwest
 –
to mislead students intobelieving that Texas History started in 1836 after the defeatat the Alamo, which did not belong to them, in the first place.
 
We have actually been fighting these racist fanatics on this front at the TexasState Board of Education for several years, but I guess they became braver, withthe outcome of the Arizona racist Jan Brewja administration and
XENOPHOBIC 
 Tucson school officials. The people of Arizona should fight this discriminatorytactic tooth and nail. As Mexican-Americans, we have consistently proven thatwe are just as, if not more American Patriots than some of these draft-dodgingbigots.
PARENTS
 
 –
 
NEED TO GET INVOLVED
 
 –
AND FIGHT FOR THE EDUCATION OF THEIRCHILDREN. WE are not getting any younger, so they need to pick up the torch andkeep fighting for our American rights. We cannot allow a handful of 
dictatorial racist individuals
decide on the INDOCTRINATION
 –
rather than the EDUCATION of our future generations, regardless of ethnicity. We must not allow America to
become another Russia or China….. but
THAT WILL HAPPEN 
, if American parentsdo not step up to the plate, beginning with School Board/PTA meetings
 –
and
VOTE 
, to vote extremist politicians and those who do notfight for us, out of office. You must
LEAD, FOLLOW, OR GET THE HELL OUT OF THE WAY!!! 
 
 
There are those who
MAKE 
THINGS HAPPEN, THOSE WHO
WISH 
THINGS WOULDHAPPEN
 –
AND THOSE WHO SUDDENLY WAKE UP AND WONDER
 –
 
“WHAT HAPPENED?” 
 EVIL can only triumph, if GOOD PEOPLE REMAIN PASSIVE.
WAKE UP, AMERICA.

 In an apparent move to initiate an attack on Ethnic Studies
 – 
and more specifically Chicana/o andAfrican American Studies
 – 
Republican state legislators are introducing new legislation tomodify the list of courses that would count as core credit history requirements at Texas stateuniversities and colleges. The attack comes in the form of Senate Bill 1128 introduced by Sen.Dan Patrick and House Bill 1838 by Rep. Giovanni Capriglione.I first heard of these bills through a Facebook contact and colleague involved with a neworganization working against passage of the proposed legislation. The group
calls itself “No TXSB1128” and just started a website at
 http://www.notxsb1128.org/.  The legislation seems less overtly racist and repressive compared to the nefarious law passed inArizona in 2010 and known as HB2281. That law has been challenged and is on appeal beforethe 9
th
Circuit federal court in San Francisco. The Texas legislation is a mere 300 words long andreads as follows:A BILL TO BE ENTITLEDAN ACT relating to curriculum requirements in American and Texas historyat institutions of higher education.BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF TEXAS:SECTION 1. Section 51.302(b), Education Code, is amended to
