Tucson's Mexican American studies program violates state law, an Arizona administrative law judge ruled Tuesday, paving the way for the program's possible demise. Judge Lewis D.

This is the sort of sentiment found down in Tucson:
“The historical culture of Tucson and the core of it’s population is Mexican-American and Native American. I am honored that they have accepted me as a neighbor in this beautiful part of America.
They were kind enough to welcome to the region many fat cat white boys who want to create a land of ticky tacky houses and golf courses, then - as fat cat white boys are prone to do - the Mexican-Americans are disrepected by those same white boys for wanting to have the historic culture of their region taught to their children in school.
Anglos need to assimilate into the culture that is endemic to the people they have chosen to live among, not always be conquerors and pretend they are in charge of everything. There will and should be a severe backlash for actions like this one by Huppenthal and the courts.”
