You will very rarely see me curse, tumblypoos, but…but…I mean, what the fuck? How is this even possible? This reads like an Onion article.
To be clear, it is now ILLEGAL to teach de la Pena’s novel (which I’ve read and which is excellent) in schools, not because the book contains violence or drug use or massively unerotic blow jobs, but because it contains Mexican American characters. (The protagonist of the novel is only half Mexican, but apparently that is too Mexican for Arizona.)
That’s it. That’s the whole reason it can’t be taught in schools.
I love how you can tell when someone around you is having deep thoughts by their serious demeanor and their eyes which don’t really seem to fixate anywhere. Whenever I see someone like that, I can’t help but mentally congratulate them, for they’re about to bring something new and unique to the physical world.
