TUCSON — Outrage was the response to the news that Tucson schools has banned books, including “Rethinking Columbus,” with an essay by award-winning Pueblo author Leslie Marmon Silko, who lives in Tucson, and works by Buffy Sainte Marie, Winona LaDuke, Leonard Peltier and Rigoberta Menchu.
 
The decision to ban Chicano and Native American books follows the 4 to 1 vote on Tuesday by the Tucson Unified School District board to succumb to the State of Arizona, and forbid Mexican American Studies, rather than fight the state decision.

Students said the banned books were seized from their classrooms and out of their hands, after Tucson schools banned Mexican American Studies, including a book of photos of Mexico. Crying, students said it was like Nazi Ger many, and they were unable to sleep since it happened.

Horrible.

Well, in for a penny, in for a pound, they say. If we’re going to be ignorant, let’s be as ignorant as possible.

Wtf. 0_0

Are you kidding me…

    What part of the Constitution allows them to do this? Certainly not the 1st amendment. Does the government only care...
