Mississippi gosh darn

Per Think Progress, the Tucson Unified School District must close down its Mexican-American Studies Program in keeping with the new state prohibition on ethnic studies in public schools:
 Insisting that the Mexican-American program taught Latino students “that they are oppressed by white people,” [state Attorney General Tom] Horne equated the program to the Jim Crow era. “It’s just like the old South, and it’s long past time that we prohibited it,” he said.
Hey, that explains the whole civil rights movement! It was all the fault of the teachers in those segregated schools--they told the black kids they were being oppressed! I mean, how else would they have been able to find out?

Oh, wait...
