Apparently, the supporters of the bill state that certain ethnic studies classes are only available to students of a particular ethnicity and that the curriculum teaches those students to resent other races--or promote "ethnic solidarity". Though, how these courses encourage resentment is not exactly defined in the article here. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100512/ap_on_re_us/us_arizona_ethnic_studies I find it hard to believe that students are specifically taught to resent caucasian people. Resentment may be the result of learning certain historical facts about the U.S. -- but history is history. The term "resentment" itself seems a very vague concept to legislate out of a class. I guess if students are specifically taught that today, all caucasian people will discriminate against them--that's different and should be banned--but I doubt that is the case. As for certain classes being *only* open to students of certain ethnic groups-that seems to make a better case toward being discriminatory. Why shouldn't an African American or Finnish American student be prohibited from a class if they want to learn about another ethnic group. What do you think?
