Re: “Vote on Future of TUSD Ethnic Studies Rescheduled for May 5

What some don’t understand is that these classes serve to make us better U.S. Citizens. I was born in the U.S. and was translating for my parents at the age of 8. I lived in two worlds since my parents didn’t speak English (they tried learning but couldn’t grasp the language). I felt looked upon as a second class citizen, until attending ethnic studies classes which helped raise my self esteem and made me proud of my heritage.

I am proud to be a U.S. Citizen and if Mexico went to war with the U.S., I’d be fighting for the U.S. I learned that about myself at Tucson High School, so until you can walk in my shoes don’t judge. It seems they’re trying to keep us in our place instead of giving us the tools to succeed. I believe some are only trying to make political points, which makes for very immature leadership.
