Because "The Comparative Politics of White People" sounds like such a fun class

Despite the fact that students who enroll in multicultural studies programs perform better, wingnuts in Arizona want to de-fund schools that teach "ethnic studies:"

The law in question prohibits the teaching of classes that “advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals...“


... by the same standards that would forbid the teaching of Latino history and culture, the teaching of Anglo history and culture is also prohibited by this law.

Not to mention the fact that teaching the history of the Southwest with only Anglo culture represented sure does leave out a whole lot.
