com HISTORY - Must Be Taught As It Happened
I urge each one of you our legislators, who were elected on your promise to protect the interests of our people; DO NOT GIVE IN to Senator Patrick and several other so-called “Christian Conservative” fanatics, to undermine the education of our minority children. I urge you to STAND-UP for the principles of free speech, academic freedom, and equal protection. We have stood up to the racism of the Rick Perry radical appointees at the Texas State Board of Education (SBOE), but now, the ball is in your respective court. I have seen some of you, our legislators, bending and trying to “compromise” with some of these characters who want the right to INDOCTRINATE our students, through “white-washed” history books, rather than EDUCATE them, to the correct version of history, which includes the existence of a history of Mexican and other minorities, in the Southwest, long before Northeasterners arrived in this region. As I have said, time and again to the “Christian Conservatives” at the SBOE, “History is not history – if you twist it to include your racist ideology, while deleting several hundred years of our culture and the valuable contributions of our people, to our nation. I don’t know why you dare to label yourselves ‘Christians,’ knowing that Christ would never hurt our children’s education.” To all our legislators: SIMPLY – DO THE JOB YOU WERE ELECTED TO DO….. instead of “playing politics” with our children’s education and their future. Election time, will be here sooner than you

think – and it’s up to you, to again earn our vote. No elected position is permanent – and WE ARE WATCHING!!! Placido Salazar, USAF Retired Vietnam Veteran Veterans’ Legislation Liaison – Dr.Hector P. Garcia American GI Forum Org. America’s Last Patrol
