The Arizona legislature and Gov. Jan Brewer recognize real racism when they see it. She signed a bill prohibiting school districts from conducting courses that promote resentment of a particular race or group. The bill states Arizona school students "should be taught to treat and value each other as individuals and not be taught to resent or hate other races or classes of people.''
Unfortunately many "ethnic studies" and "gender studies" programs in schools are nothing more than courses that are tendentious scholarship designed to stoke hatred of one group.
