WISE WORDS BY MALCOLM X: WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE YOURSELF
As we learn of Arizona's new racist law banning Ethnic Studies in school, it is important we remember the words of Malcolm X. The racist Arizona laws are a repeat of the Jim Crow laws. A bill like sb1070 condoning Racial Profiling and allowing other people to demand police ask for Brown People's papers are Jim Crow laws. Banning ethnic studies is another Jim Crow law. Without multi cultural studies and sticking to only Northern European teachings, minorities are taught to Hate Themselves for the color of their own skin.
As Malcolm X said:
. WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN
. WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE THE SHAPE OF YOUR NOSE AND THE SHAPE OF YOUR LIPS
. WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE YOURSELF FROM THE TOP OF YOUR HEAD TO THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET
. WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE YOUR OWN KIND; TO HATE THE RACE YOU BELONG TO SO MUCH THAT YOU DON'T WANT TO BE AROUND EACH OTHER!
. WHO TAUGHT YOU TO HATE BEING WHAT GOD MADE YOU!
More than ever Arizonians, REGISTER TO VOTE! THEN VOTE THESE CRIMINALS OUT OF POWER!!
