It was inspired by opposition to the May 11 passage of HB 2281 in Arizona banning ethnic studies in the AZ public schools and the May 21 passage of new social studies standards by the influential Texas State Board of Education.  Well-read Red Frann Michel explains what ethnic studies is all about and how it is connected to other issues raised by reactionaries in these stressful economic times.  You can read her remarks here on Frann's blog.

Die German Stunde talks about Immigration

program date: 
Fri, 09/24/2010

 Former German central banker Thilo Sarrazin has provoked a heated debate in Germany with the publication in August of his book:  Deutschland Schafft Sich Ab -- or Germany Does Away with Itself. In the book Sarrazin says Muslims are either unwilling or incapable of integration and that immigrants are more of a negative than a positive for the country. Politicians roundly condemned the statements, but some Germans say Sarrazin has publicly stated what many actually think. Host Miriam Widman discusses the book and immigration with Feridun Bek, a German of Turkish descent who is an auto industry executive now living in Detroit and with Sergey Lagodinsky, a Russian-Jewish immigrant to Germany who is a lawyer and member of the Social Democratic Party.
