Texas board of education excludes hispanics from history books

Below is a portion of the AP story about the Texas Board of Education's new standards for textbooks.

Numerous attempts to add the names or references to important Hispanics throughout history also were denied, inducing one amendment that would specify that Tejanos died at the Alamo alongside Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie. Another amendment deleted a requirement that sociology students "explain how institutional racism is evident in American society."

So I guess we're living in the United White States of America.

It gets worse.

Democrats did score a victory by deleting a portion of an amendment by Republican Don McLeroy suggesting that the civil rights movement led to "unrealistic expectations for equal outcomes."

That an amendment suggesting that the civil rights movement led to "unrealistic expectations of equal outcomes" would even be considered is revealing enough. Of course, the chief culprits in this story are those that name the name of Christ.

Weep with me.

So you don't believe that in today's society there is an expectation that all outcomes should be equal, regardless of effort, skill, or talent?

If there is that expectation, is it unrealistic?
