KVOA flat out lies, and why it matters

May 16, 2010 at 11:45 pm Leave a comment

Ethnic studies is important because of many reasons. You can’t just erase thousands of years worth of history, of culture, of ways of living. Especially when this knowledge is what has sustained people in the arid desert for so long!

I attended the TUSD rally against HB2281 which included art, poetry, theater… no arrest were made, nothing “exciting” for the media, but all in all a very beautiful event!

But this was too boring for the media. They aren’t used to seeing brown youth have an intelligent display of creativity, of exercising the very American rights that they are talking in ethnic studies, youth who are reclaiming their identity in the xenophobic state and time we live in.

KVOA had a horrible story… so horrible they had to rescind the video from their website, and offered the following as their excuse… but they did not apologize.

And they still claim there is a controversy… which only exists in their mind because they are the ones that created it!
