It’s time to play: Guess What’s Worse than Slavery!

O.K. gang! It’s time to play Guess What’s Worse than Slavery! You know the rules: I’ll read a quote and you’ll have 60 seconds to guess what the speaker is talking about. This week’s prize is a life time-supply of Grifter Grits, the breakfast of quitters everywhere.

O.K., everybody ready? Here’s the quote:

“It’s just like the old South, and it’s long past time that we prohibited it.”

[Tick Tock Tick Tock Tick – Bzzz!]

Yes! What’s your guess?

No, it’s not an pack of teabaggers screaming racist epithets at black members of Congress!

[Tick Tock Tick – Bzzzz!]

Great, another contestant! What’s your guess?

Ooo, I’m sorry! It isn’t a gaggle of “Birthers” claiming that President Obama is really a citizen of Keny- [Bzzt!]

All right, another guess! Speak up so everyone can hear you…

That’s absolutely correct! According to Arizona’s schools chief Tom Horne, the Tucson school district’s Mexican-American studies program is just like the Old South.

[Ding Ding Ding Ding Ding! Confetti falls from the ceiling]

Horne made the comment today when Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill that prohibits classes that advocate ethnic solidarity, that are designed primarily for students of a particular race or that promote resentment toward a certain ethnic group. According to Horne, who has battled to get the bill passed for years, the program teaches Latino students that they’re oppressed by white people. What a crazy idea!

That’s all for now. Tune in next time for Guess What’s Worse than Slavery!
