Ethnic Studies at TUSD on the Ropes Till Federal Judge Rules

Los Tigres del Norte, apparently not to Judge Kowal's liking...

Is there any doubt save in the most muddled of noggins that Arizona's Latino population continues to dwell beneath the bootheel of a hostile political class made up almost entirely of Anglos?

Yes, the successful recall of the state's top bigot, former state Senate President Russell Pearce, reveals an opening to be exploited by those who long for racial and ethnic harmony, justice and adherence to U.S. Constitution. I certainly do not discount the significance of Pearce's downfall.

But consider the counter evidence: A damning report from the U.S. Justice Department, which found that the sheriff's office for Arizona's most populous county engages in racial profiling; a U.S. district judge granting class action status to Latinos stopped by that same agency; and a sheriff willing to thumb his nose at both.

Statewide, Arizona's breathing-while-brown law Senate Bill 1070 remains popular with a still-ascendant passel of nativist goobers and race-baiting politicos, though it's mostly been blocked by a district judge and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. 

Arizona's clueless Governor Jan Brewer, bereft of any real ideas to help the state's economy, clings to the signing of SB 1070 as her moment of glory and persists in her steady drumbeat of nativist sloganeering.

Wingnutty state Senators and House members continue blurting hateful, Mexican-bashing rhetoric: everything from state Senator Sylvia Allen's recent pronouncement that if Arizonans don't declare an ersatz civil war on the federal government, "we're going to become part of Mexico" to state Senator Steve Smith's pimping a never-to-be-built border fence to various state legislators' calling for an armed, vigilante force on the border. 

Such current events and the xenophobic climate here in Sand Land may not have been front and center in the Tucson Unified School District's appeal of state school's Superintendent John Huppenthal's finding that the district's Mexican American Studies curriculum was not in compliance with a racist law aimed at wiping out the program entirely.

Still, context is everything. And in the context of Arizona at the tail end of 2011, the recent decision by Arizona Administrative Law Judge Lewis Kowal in favor of Huppenthal, a cynical politician who campaigned for election on a platform of stopping TUSD's mostly Latino students from learning about their own history in this country, is galling.

In short, Kowal, a jurist whose expertise is with liquor laws and insurance statutes, swallowed whole the shibboleths dished out by well-known enemies of ethnic studies such as TUSD board member Mark Stegeman. By contrast, the judge discounted entirely a glowing report of the MAS program by the Cambium Learning Group, ironically commissioned by Superintendent Huppenthal at a cost of $110,000 to taxpayers. 

Kowal also overlooked the fact that the MAS program is having its intended effect, improving the performance of at-risk students in a district that's overwhelmingly Latino, and making them more likely to graduate from high school and matriculate to college.

At one point, Kowal writes,

"Testimonial evidence presented at the hearing in conjunction with excerpts from texts, curriculum, assessments and student work, demonstrates that MAS classes cause students to develop a sense of racial resentment toward the `white oppressor' or `dominant' group/ the philosophy of `us against them' is a persistent theme that exists within the program."

To back up the contention that MAS is teaching Latino kids to hate whitey, Kowal cherry-picks and misinterprets this "testimonial evidence" with the same leaden predictability that's common among die-hard MAS-haters.

For example, an ancient Mesoamerican version of "the golden rule" is "imbued" with the "philosophy" that "Latinos have been dehumanized, and stripped of their humanity, culture and language by white people."

Talk about someone being irony-deficient. First off, the history not only of Latinos, but of Native Americans and African Americans and just about every minority in this country is, sadly, one of dehumanization. 

And who were the ones doing the dehumanizing? Three guesses on that one, folks. And the last two don't count.

Secondly, Kowal is essentially participating in the "stripping" of "culture and language" from Latinos by endorsing Huppenthal's findings and ordering that 10 percent of TUSD's budget be withheld until it kowtows to Huppenthal and kills off MAS.

You can read Kowal's decision for yourself, here. Perusing it, I'm astonished to find that descriptions of the Chicano "unity clap," made famous by Cesar Chavez, and the Mayan greeting In Lak'ech, which posits that "You are my other self," are regarded with suspicion as examples of hateful indoctrination.

Another example from Kowal's decision is instructive. He quotes at length from a "poem" used in one teacher's curriculum entitled Somos Mas Americanos. Actually, it's a song by the popular norteno-band Los Tigres del Norte

Kowal reproduces it in part. Here it is in full:

"We are more American"

They have shouted at me a thousand times I should go back to my country

Because there's no room for me here

I want to remind the gringos: I didn't cross the border, the border crossed me

America was born free, but men divided it

They marked a line so that I jump it

And they can call me "invader"

And that's a very frequent mistake

They took from us eight states

Who's then the invader?

I'm a foreigner in my own land

And I didn't come here to cause you trouble

I'm a hard-working man

And if history isn't lying

The powerful nation settled here, in the glory

Among brave warriors,

Indians of two continents mixed with Spaniards

And if we take centuries into account

We are more American

We are more American than the children of the Anglo-Saxons

They got from us without money the waters of the Río Grande

And they took from us Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Colorado

Also California and Nevada were taken away

Utah was not enough, so they took Wyoming as well

I'm the blood of the Indian

I'm Latin American, I'm mestizo

We are made of all colors

And of all trades

And if we take into account centuries

even if it hurts our neighbors

We are more American

Than all of the gringos

I'll grant you this is a point of view that many Anglos do not want taught in schools, aside from its general accuracy. But does it teach resentment to repeat it and discuss what it means in a classroom?

Flip the script for a moment, and consider a song that could easily be part of an African-American history or literature class, Strange Fruit, made famous by Billie Holiday:

Southern trees bear strange fruit,

Blood on the leaves and blood at the root, 

Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,

Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees.

Pastoral scene of the gallant south,

The bulging eyes and the twisted mouth,

Scent of magnolias, sweet and fresh,

Then the sudden smell of burning flesh.

Here is fruit for the crows to pluck,

For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck,

For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop,

Here is a strange and bitter crop.

Disturbing stuff. But if you know anything about the history of lynching and white supremacy and Jim Crow in the South, you know it speaks the truth.

Thing is, many white Americans simply can't handle the truth about this nation's past. They want sanitized history books for their children, which may give a vague chapter or two to the ugliness and brutishness of our forebears, but then go on to sing the praises of the United States, and rationalize those errant chapters as the occasional potholes in an otherwise well-paved road.

William Faulkner's dictum that, "The past is never dead. It's not even past" comes to mind. Indeed, the America we live in is the direct result of the intertwined strands of horror and greatness that preceded it.

In this regard, I find it interesting that Kowal completely dismisses the testimony of Dr. Jeffrey Milem, head of the University of Arizona's Department of Educational Policy Studies and Practice, who was a witness for TUSD. 

Yet, Kowal's depiction of Milem's testimony makes plenty of sense to me.

Kowal writes:

"Dr. Milem opined that teaching students about historical facts of oppression and racism does not promote racial resentment, and , in fact, `the failure to teach this part of our history is more likely to promote this resentment.'"

That Kowal did not find such statements illuminating says more about Kowal than about the testimony. 

Thankfully, Kowal is not the final word on whether the MAS program will continue. Nor, ultimately, will it belong to Superintendent Huppenthal.

Currently, the constitutionality of the underlying statute is at question in a lawsuit before federal Judge A. Wallace Tashima. On December 21, Tashima listed to oral arguments for and against a preliminary injunction Tucson attorney Richard Martinez is requesting, one that would enjoin Huppenthal from enforcing Arizona's anti-ethnic studies statute.

Martinez's motion seeking an injunction is an incisive document, one that lays bare the duplicity and race-baiting of the statute's author, current Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne, and of Superintendent Huppenthal, both of whom ginned up an unnecessary culture war against MAS to aid themselves politically. 

Horne's lawyers, arguing on behalf of their client Huppenthal, are seeking the lawsuit's dismissal. In addition, there's a motion for summary judgment by the plaintiffs which was not addressed in the oral arguments on December 21.

A lot rides on the outcome of Tashima's rulings on the various motions at play: the First Amendment rights of students and teachers, local control of public schools, and the equal protection of Latino students and teachers under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

There's also that little thing called historical truth, as well as how it's taught. 

The history of the MAS program, which began in 1998, has so far been a success story, despite the hyperbolic screechings of its detractors. 

If it's crushed in compliance with the desires of the hateful nativists and cynical pols who run this state, history will not be kind. Although, that history may have to be taught beyond the boundaries of the benighted Grand Canyon State.

There are MAS teachings in AZ. Students can go to college or university. Take Pre-colonial, Colonial, and Post-colonial Latin American  History. Some U.S. history and U.S./Latin American relations is good too. I don't condone ban, but if the ban continues TUSD may not be able to prepared for college courses I mentioned above. I am an American history major and I needed to take all those courses in my undergrad.

We{re making the same offer to the school district, but your state authorities are tying their hands.  We're of the mind that especially in Arizona, Mexican history is your history and NOT teaching it is a disservice to your students.  To claim that reading another country's history, even with its biases and assumptions, is "indoctrination" presumes that the teaching history is meant to be indoctrination. 19th century educational theorists may have thought this way, but I would hope 21st century teachers were educating 21st century students to, I donno... learn history so they can critically and intelligently use the past to understand the present and make informed decisions as citizens and taxpayers.

P.S. Also, if they were considered citizens of Mexico, then Mexico regularly engaged in killing its own citizens. But then killing its own citizens, was something Mexico always did anyway.

Mexico history goes back a few Millenia before the Republic?  It goes back a few thousand years you say. In Mexico,yes, not in the U.S. Some Mexicans have Aztec and other Indians in them, but only a very few have North American Indian in them. It has irritated many North American Indian tribes that a lot of Mexicans try to identify with them, so much so, that they have been becoming more carefull on checking their ancestry.

richardgrabman

Abel... not to get too pedantic, but what are called "native Americans" in the United States were considered citizens of Mexico after 1824 (It was 1924 before this class of people were considered citizens of the United States).  As it is, various events and figures in Arizona history are part of Mexican history as well ... the 1846-48War, the Gadsden Purchase, the Apaches (Geronimo wasn't running around with a tourist visa down this way) and the Yaquí War of the 1880s-1920s certainly involved Arizona.  And while there were few Mexican settlers in what became Arizona (notably around Nogales) to say that Mexico did not have a presence in the area – militarily and culturally — is a mistake. You must remember that "Mexican" history goes back a few millenia before the Republic, and is more than a matter of what occurred within relatively recently drawn political boundaries.

Mexican history is NOT Arizona history.  While Mexico owned what is now Arizona on paper, there was never a single Mexican settlement in what is now Arizona.  Not one. If your history books say otherwise, then they are just revisionist propaganda.

well, some of my points are very similar. I am white and I have done enough research and read enough books to know that it wasn't honky dory back in the old days. Instead to make states native people were removed so that white people could get the best land to farm on. Forests were removed and the ecology of the areas were changed forever. What is sad is that people in AZ want to be big white bullies and not allow people to learn that not everything is as it was written. I read a quote somewhere. "History is written by the conquerors". That makes me think about how there were also the conquered. Every story has two (or more) sides. I would think that people should be exposed to as many sides of a story as possible. This law reeks of racial hatred. It reeks of white people wanting to keep others down and ignorant of their own past.

I mentioned Bikini Atoll. I wonder how many people know about what happened there, or what we did with the people that lived there.

Thank you, Mr. Gurrola, for showing your true colors, finally! I have had a cringing feeling  the moment I saw you display your scientific achievements as a"physical anthropologist".I believe you have simply failed  - or chosen - to acknowledge that the forces - people - behind the drive to undo this program don't have physical anthropology on their minds. The way I see it, these individuals are good old white supremacists who feel uncomfortable having brown people around them, hearing the Spanish language and last, but not least, don't want to be confronted with historical facts they'd rather keep under a lid.Now, that you are coming out so clearly and condescendingly in support of SB 1070, I have a feeling that you might somehow be "scientifically"  associated with the current Secretary of State of Kansas, Kris Kobach. Is that so? Your strong support for SB1070, which was "crafted" with the handwriting of Mr. Kobach, who is associated to IRLI, wich  is to be considered the legal appendix of FAIR, a racist/nativist group, could be ill-fated in light of the fact the State of Arizona is in the process of scrapping plans for a new  5000 bed prison. An ominous event with regard to the pending 1070 case before the SC?Anyway, the law that you so strongly support was quite obviously designed to circumvent the "supremacy clause" of the Federal Immigration Law, which has simple illegal immigration as a civil infraction, punishable by a fine. SB 1070, to the contrary, tried to make it a misdemeanor crime. When under Federal Law "illegals" had to be processed pursuant to 287(g) and turned over to ICE asap, under SB 1070 these"illegals"  could now be processed under State Law and housed in State / private prisons, with Federal money paying for them. Courtesy Chuck Coughlin. Well, it didn't work out that way, and the State  now realized that they probably won't need more prisons.As for your condescending offer to educate people for free, Sir , please educate yourself a little "outside the box", before you offer your services to others.

I'm obssesed by the obssesion guys like you and others have in knocking down my country, the U.S.A. when one of the most corrupt nations in the world, known for neglect of its citizens, neglect for its indigenous population to the point of near starvation, and a complete neglect of anything that would help those groups, doesn't at all seem to bother you and others. If Mexico is infested with drug lords and corrupt, it's the U.S.'s fault. If Mexico has a poor economy, it's the U'S. fault, because Mexico is just so powerless to do anything about it. It's incredible, how much that place gets a pass, but when it comes to the U.S. the country that has done more for Mexicans, than any place in the world, including Mexico, it gets nothing but disrespect. I just can't fathom that way of thinking.

richardgrabman

Um... quite the opposite, Bobby.  By offering to give a Mexican perspective, obviously my company feels that there is no one "correct" version of history, or of cultural studies.  What bothers us is that the State of Arizona is attempting to silence any discussion of alternatives to the "official story". If you think my reading isn't "correct", I suggest you start doing your research and publishing your own history books.  The more the better.

It is NOT true that the Dutch and English, planned some large scale genocide of Inidans. The operative word here is "PLANNED". They did, it is true have a view of them as non-Christian heathens. But when Indians naturally opposed expansion of the European settlements, and killed and targeted Europeans, things became serious and that is where the real fighting began. But to say it was organized genocide is ridiculous.

Bobby

Funny, how this issue really just comes down to attitude. People are either for a positive view of the U.S., or a negative view of it, depending on what one allows into ones  mind.

It really is weird.

Trail of Tears ring a bell, dipshit? The Indian Removal Act was an act of Congress, signed by Andrew Jackson. 4,000 Cherokee died on the Trail of Tears, a direct consequence of U.S. government policy of Indian removal.

Then there's the Long Walk of the Navajo, where more than 10,000 Navajos and Apaches were forced to march to the Bosque Redondo reservation. One third died of disease and hunger while held captive by the U.S. Army.

Going over all of the famous "massacres" of Indians at the hands of government forces would take a book or two. I suggest you go read one. There are plenty in the library written by noted scholars on the genocide of Native Americans. 

As for 1070, wrong again, dumbass. You don't have to commit a crime to be stopped by a cop looking to enforce immigration law under 1070. Read the chaptered law:

http://www.azleg.gov//FormatDo... 

It specifically states, "for any lawful contact." A cop can walk up to you and start talking to you. That would be lawful contact. No crime or traffic offense need occur.

And who do you think cops would be stopping on "reasonable suspicion" of violating immigration laws? The white kids at the Scottsdale mall? If you think so, I've got a bridge in Brooklyn that's for sale. And you're so dumb, you'd probably buy it.

richardgrabman

Well, that is part of history, and hardly ignored.  Why that should be, and whether it is also true in other societies is something one can't make any informed comments on (or a decent political decision about) unless its studied, and "ethnic studies" are part of that. 

Abel – where you write about planned genocide against the native people is where you need to study more.  The Spanish colonial policy was to incorporate the native people as  ... as workers, consumers and subjects of the Empire (and members of the Roman Catholic Church).  That there was genocide — planned in the Caribbean mostly incidental or accidental on the mainland — is nothing any Mexican historian has ever denied.  As it is, the first published reports on the genocide came from an important Mexican figure, Bartolomé de las Casas.  French colonial policy in the Americas followed much the same pattern (genocide, accidental or otherwise) in the Caribbean, and a mixed record in north America).  The only difference is that the French were more likely to see the various native peoples as foreign trading partners to be exploited rather than subjects and potential Catholic converts. 

But to say the genocide in Mexico (and throughout the Americas) was planned is nonsense.  The only people who did that were the Dutch and the English, under the assuption that the native people were not really human, and didn't have souls.  Not pretty, but the Inquisition burned a few Spaniards at the stake for the heresy of not accepting the "indians" as humans  There were more than a few genocidal maniacs in Mexican history, which no one denies, nor would any Mexican historian overlook.   NOr would they, or should they, ignore the very real influence that native culture had on their descendents and the outsiders who settled among them... that, my friend, IS ethnic studies.  You seem to believe that history is -- or should be -- an exercise in propaganda for one political group or another.  

Abel Gurrola

This is true.  Mexican society is very stratified, and the Indians are at the bottom.  Indians are very discriminated against in Mexico.

Abel Gurrola

You're not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, are you GreenHorndog?  The Anglos never had a policy of genocide against the Indians (a term that THEY prefer over the white liberal-invented "Native American").  But the SPANISH, who became the Mexicans, did. 

Do you know anything about SB1070? Or are you one of the brainwashed morons who think 1070 allows police to stop "brown people" on the street and demand "papers"? If it's the latter, then maybe you should get an intelligent person to read the law to you and explain the hard parts you don't understand. SB 1070 requires that a person FIRST be stopped for a CRIME or a TRAFFIC OFFENSE. Such a person is required by existing law to furnish identification. If the person furnishes a Mexican Consular Card, a Mexican Chauffeur (driver's) license, or a counterfeit green card, then and ONLY then can the officer inquire about the person's immigration status.

I always enjoy educating people for free...but you are SO uneducated that if I'm to continue, I'm going to have to ask you to have your mom send me a nice, fat check.

Tell it to Cheif Geronimo, who had his wife and children wiped out by the Mexican armny, ON HIS NATIONS LAND, that Mexico thinks is its own. Kind of hypocritical of you to leave out that bit of Indian history, isn't it. There's more from Mexico's history with the North American Indians, you care to read it. Come to think of it, Mexico can't even treat it's indigenous Indians decently yet.

GreenHornet
GreenHornet

Au contraire, "Abel" (likely some white dude poser), what did Anglos do to Native Americans when they wanted to wipe out what was left of them? They forced their kids into boarding schools where they learned the "white" version of history and were forbidden to use their native tongues.The ethnic cleansing is on the other foot. Huppy, Horney, et al. want to shut down MAS to keep brown kids (and white kids too) from learning about chicano culture.

Remember 1070. Who are they rounding up? The brown, not the white. If you can pass as Anglo, you're a-OK. If you're brown, you're suspect.

I can't believe they can get away with this.  You are creating ignorant generations.  I went to college in Hawaii where it was required to take a Hawaiian Studies class.  You cannot believe the things that White people did to the people of Hawaii and other nations throughout the South Pacific (and I'm White).  It is horrifying.  And this was never taught in any of my history classes.  Learning about these atrocities is eye opening.  You gain a new respect of other races.  No race is superior than another.  History is history.  Just because you don't teach it doesn't mean it didn't happen.  I never thought this stuff still went on in the 21st century.  Maybe because I was fed sugar-coated history throughout my educational career. Sad.

When illegal aliens hit people while driving illegaly, they never,ever,stop. They don't care. They only care about themselves. You'd better start getting some real insight into what these ethnic studies classes are about Meg808. They are about you. They are about destroying you, and instilling doubt into you about yourself as a good person. It's not about history Meg. They don't care about history. They care about NOW!! They wan't power NOW!  Please understand this. They want you small and powerless. THINK, that's why God gave you a brain.
