Arizona: Apartheid Board Complicit in Destroying Ethnic Studies

Apartheid Board Complicit in Destroying Ethnic StudiesBy Roberto Dr. Cintli Rodriguez

In a previous column, I used the term CULTURAL GENOCIDE to describe the attempt by the state of Arizona to criminalize and to eliminate the teaching of Ethnic Studies. The use of the term unnecessarily set off a firestorm across the Atlantic. Incidentally, the similar attempt to destroy native cultures in the Americas in a previous era was called: REDUCCION. The term may not have been controversial, but the dehumanizing practice of culturally exterminating Indigenous peoples certainly was.
