Textbooks

I heard a reporter talking about backlash over passages in a history textbook on Thursday night. Walked into the room just in time to hear her say that there were comparisons made in a few chapters about how Mexicans were not as hardworking, and seen as “lazy” and “drunkards” when compared to white workers.

 

 

Some post-racial society we have here, huh? White men are still so threatened by Latinos that they project their own inadequacies and lack of ambition onto brown men – AGAIN. …And they wonder why so many parents are opting to home school their children…

 

Why aren’t we writing our own heritage books?
