It doesn't feel good to say I told you so Arizona...Even as Arizona Superintendent of Education John Huppenthal, who is infamous for enforcing HB 2281 on Tucson's Mexican American Studies department, admits to racist blogging, it's too late. It's too late for the students who were robbed of a culturally relevant education that served it's population. It's too late to bring back all of the committed educators whose time and energy were diverted from teaching to deal with a racist law whose enforcers are now publicly admitting to their own racism.

But the voting block of Arizonans who elected Huppenthal, his role-mode/predecessor Tom Horne, and the likes of Joe Arpaio won't have their minds changed even when presented with facts that counter those beliefs. You can't mess with the terministic screen of ideology, especially when only relying upon cognitive dissonance.
