Is this where our country is going?
A conservative Arizona lawmaker, Rep. Bob Thorpe, is proposing a far-reaching law in Arizona, House Bill 2120, banning virtually every college event, activity or course which discusses social justice, skin privilege, or racial equality. Violating the law would allow the state of Arizona to levy multimillion-dollar fines and penalties against universities — removing at least 10% of their state aid.
This is no joke. Arizona already passed a law targeting ethnic studies in the state. They are fulling willing and able to pass this bill as well.
Please allow me to highlight some of the most disturbing sections of the bill.
It would ban any courses, activities, or events that:
“Are designed primarily for a particular ethnic group.”
“Promote social justice toward a race.”
“Advocate solidarity based on ethnicity.”
Strangely, so as to not appear anti-Semitic, the bill then makes a very particular allowance for any and all discussions of the Holocaust.
