So he never sat in on a class, but chose to shut down the whole program. Cool. I swurrtagot these people are belligerent dummies for fun. Their motto in life literally is “F—- logic.”

And we must tell the truth… Mexicans didn’t illegally cross the U.S. border. The U.S. border CROSSED THEM. 

Tucson: there is a man on your school board who doesn’t understand the implications of the word “hearsay.” And that’s, like, problem #1,459 on the list of things wrong with this dude. He says the law specifically targeted the Mexican American Studies program. He claimed the teacher was buying kids burritos to indoctrinate them. He NEVER EVEN SAT IN ON A CLASS. Who allowed this man to vote on children’s educations?

seriously. If you see this and you have the chance, watch the documentary Precious Knowledge. Tucson Unified was the ONLY school district in the entire United States that had ethnic studies programs for K-12 students and it recently got cut because of these ignorant beliefs held by Arizona politicians.

During the administration of President Ulysses S. Grant, the United States considered annexing the Dominican Republic, whose president at the time, Buenaventura Báez, died in Puerto Rico 128 years ago today. An investigating commission, which included Frederick Douglass, visited the country in 1871, a year after President Grant had mentioned the idea of annexing the Dominican Republic, referred to as the Republic of San Domingo, in his State of the Union address. Annexation of the Caribbean country also came with the consideration that many of the United States’ African-American population, many of whom had been recently freed from slavery, would migrate to the majority-Black island. The annexation of the country also included the purchase of Samaná Bay. The annexation treaty was fiercely opposed by Sen. Charles Sumner, head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and was eventually defeated in the United States legislature.
