How can it be racist if we’re telling the truth?

A textbook proposed to help teach the cultural history of Mexican-Americans in Texas public schools is under scrutiny by scholars, some of whom decry the effort as racist and not a reflection of serious academic study. The textbook, titled “Mexican American Heritage,” describes Mexican-Americans as people who “adopted a revolutionary narrative that opposed Western civilization and wanted to destroy this society.” It also links Mexican-Americans to undocumented immigrants, saying illegal immigration has “caused a number of economic and security problems” in the U.S. that include “poverty, drugs, crime, non-assimilation, and exploitation” The State Board of Education voted to include textbooks on Mexican-American studies after activists last year demanded the subject be formally included in state curriculum.

Sure, go ahead and look at my video

If you just bought cocaine and recorded the drug deal on your own dashcam video, it might not be a good idea to show the footage to the sheriff’s deputy who pulled you over.
But that’s just what Kathleen Laroche, 27, did May 12 in Fort Pierce, according to arrest affidavits. The case began as St. Lucie County sheriff’s investigators traveled south on South 25th Street at Edwards Road and a Ford Focus sped past them. They stopped the vehicle, which Laroche was driving. Laroche apologized for weaving and speeding, and said she didn’t have a license because it was suspended. One of the investigators noticed a dashcam type camera that was recording, and asked about the video quality. He asked if he could see the video, and Laroche said he could. “(The detective) saw that the video captured Laroche purchasing cocaine just prior to the traffic stop,” an affidavit states.

It also read “Do you wanna do some blow man?” Despite the Shasta trip not being a school event, the university has launched an investigation. In an official statement, Oregon vice president for student life Robin Holmes said Lambda Chi Alpha was suspending the chapter’s activities “until the situation is addressed.”
