If you can't banish people outright, then you can try to erase them from students' minds. That's exactly what happened in Tucson Unified School District in Arizona, when conservatives ipassed an anti-immigrant racial profiling law, SB1070 that in effect targeted Latinos. At the same time, right-wing activists succeeded in passing a law banning the teeaching of Mexican American Studies, saying that a highly successful TUSD program that taught Chicano/Latiino history and culture to all students in the largely Hispanic district was instead harmful and divisive. The law, HB 2281, bans instruction that encourages "ethnic solidarity" among other things. Mind you, to begin with the ethnic studies courses were part of a federal court order to address historic and systemic racism in Arizona's education system.
The outrage over free speech rights of teachers and students is what prompted writer and teacher Tony Diaz to "smuggle" books by Latino authors out of his home state of Texas and into Arizona. He has been reporting on and organizing the efforts of free speech activists, ethnic studies activists, and students and teachers fighting for a relevant curriculum ever since.
TUSD high school student Maya Arce is a plaintiff who filed in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to overtun this Arizona law on grounds that it's unconstitutional. On January 12, 2015, she will testify and urge the Ninth Circuit to protect her First Amendment rights and the rights of other Arizona students and overturn this ignorant, bigoted, and narrow-minded law.
Background, go here.
More on Tony Diaz here and Librotraficante here.
Tonight on The Gist of Freedom Join Historian Yul Anderson. He will explain the State of Black Studies and his statement below.
"Black Studies program throughout American have been taken over by others from the Diaspora community such that African American studies becomes Diaspora study programs. Leadership of Black/Afro-American studies programs have morphed and lost interest in the origination of such programs and have now been commingled with Latin American Study, Caribbean studies, Haitian Studies, to the point that there is no longer a distinctive core of Black or African American study programs in America. This has resulted in a tug of war of funding and resentment amongst African American Scholars who feel their distinctive turf has been invaded, as a result less funding for Black or African American studies programs exist.
The Global media, while seeing the Africans influence and power in American as a result of Presidents Obama's African Summit now place more emphasis on African images rather than African American images, the so called "New Black'. Traditional HBCU's while relatively less expensive than traditional main stream white liberal colleges have become much more favorable as the lack of qualified Black African American Scholars are not able to fill the teaching vacancies, as a result HBCU's become much more inviting to the diaspora communities which in turn morph HSBCU's into a more international college, taking on more international issues with substantive professors from the international community.

Speak Life Radio ~ Remembering African American History!
Blessings family and welcome back to another amazing show. When most people think about African American History, the first thing that comes to mind is slavery right? Well our History is much richer and goes deeper than that, we were and still are a Great people with great minds and a fascinating culture. Unfortunately not much of our history is taught in school but that shouldn't stop us from learing it and teaching it to our youth! God says, "My People Perish For Lack Of Knowledge" and that's exactly whats happening to our people because we have no idea how great we are nor do we realize all that we have contributed to society.
Here are some Important and Famous African Americans you may or may not know: Benjamin Banneker ~1731-1806 Astronomer, clockmaker, publisher. Phillis Wheatly ~ 1753-1784 Poet, one of the first African American poets whose works were published. Frederick Douglass ~ 1818-1895 Abolitionist, editor, orator, author,statesman, reformer. Harriet Tubman ~ 1820-1913 writer, abolitionist, as an ablitionist, she acted as intelligance gather, refugee organizer, raid leader, nurse, revival speaker, and fund raiser. This is just a few but I pray this will give you a taste to study more!!!!

African Americans in American History
Divide and Conquer has long been a stategy among the powerful of the world to gain dominance over the weak, for political, social and economic supremacy. On this program we will continue on the topic of the pass two programs, titled: Police Brutality, "Black Man and Psycological Effects of America", which is holding American back from all that it can be.
Willie Lynch Letter:
"In my bag, I have a fool proof method for controlling your slaves. I guarantee everyone of you that if installed it will control the slaves for at least three hundred years. My method is simple, any member of your family or any OVERSEER can use it.I have outlined a number of differences among the slaves, and I take these differences and make them bigger. I use FEAR, DISTRUST, and ENVY for control purposes."
Some historians claim that the LETTER is a hoax, because they say they could not find evidents of a Willie Lynch in 1712, in America or England. REAL or FALSE, the proof is in the reality of the content of the letter, documented in the real history of the Black African Slave in American, from 1619 to 2015, 300 years plus.
"Beware of the smart crooked deceivers who will always try to pull one over on you", to maintain the status quo. The time is now, to start using our own G-d given common sense and follow the logic in our studies to it's logical conclusion.
Very Simple, but, very complex.
Is their strife between A percentage of African Americans and A percentage of Africans.
