Members of the Texas State Board of Education gave preliminary approval Friday to remove significant areas of curriculum from civil rights and global politics and replace them with conservative historic figures and beliefs. Courses that would be affected by these changes include social studies, history and economics.

One of the subjects debated amongst the lawyers, dentists and publishers, who make up the board, was whether or not Hip Hop should be taught as a cultural movement. According to the Huffington Post, right wing members voted that Hip Hop should be deleted as a requirement and that students should not be taught about its cultural impact across not only the United States, but the world. I feel this is wrong why not just delete all music from Texas books? No more Bach and Mozart , forget Willie Nelson and John Lennon,  if  hip hop is not part of American culture then those forms of music  should not be either.

Conservatives also approved to have a sociological focus on institutional racism and its presence in American society banned from the books, as well as removing important references of Latino and Hispanic figures throughout history.

The Texas State Board of Education approved of the new expectations with a 10-5 vote, and a final decision is expected to be made in May, but not before holding an open forum where the public can produce additional arguments and even possibly, different amendments to stop some of the changes from being implemented. So if anyone out there lives in Texas go out and let your voice be heard!!!

    Texas is a fucked up state filled with white devil shit heads and the only GOOD thing to come out of it is Beyonce and Houston rappers… The Texas Board is already drawing heat because the white trash there is trying to put their creationalist mumbo jumbo in textbooks in schoosl. Americans should listen to Texans about as much as they should Sarah Palin stupid ass.
