The state legislature in Arizona seems to be under the control of a white supremacist group. A recent proposal targets race-based groups (note that groups that are all or mostly white are not mentioned) that largely consist of students of color.
Arizona public schools would be barred from any teachings considered counter to democracy or Western civilization under a proposal endorsed Wednesday by a legislative panel.
Additionally, the measure would prohibit students of the state’s universities and community colleges from forming groups based in whole or part on the race of their members, such as the Black Business Students Association at Arizona State University or Native Americans United at Northern Arizona University. Those groups would be forbidden from operating on campus.
The creator of this racist, Euro-centric measure is Republican Russell Pearce. Pearce who was formally the Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff, sneaked the measure into a state senate bill on homeland security.
Rep. John Kavanagh, a member of the Appropriations Committee, said he hopes the measure helps return cultural studies in the state’s schools to a “melting pot” model.
“This bill basically says, ‘You’re here. Adopt American values,’ ” said Kavanagh, a Fountain Hills Republican. “If you want a different culture, then fine, go back to that culture.”
Kavanagh and Pearce are essentially advocating for people of color in the U.S. to assimilate into white culture. The melting pot to which they refer is similar to Mount Doom in the fictional land of Mordor. People of color enter Mount Doom, throw their language/culture/identity into the hot lava, and presto, their language/culture/identity is incinerated. The melting pot is not an amalgamation of cultures, it is an incinerator that eradicates anything but white culture.
