In the news: Arizona gov. signs bill targeting ethnic studies
Basically it targets ethnic studies programs that promote "ethnic chauvinism". Now, I'm not much of fan of such studies, but it's silly to enact a law to meddle in such a small-potatoes aspect of education.
This comes off more as racial resentment. I don't approve of that sort of thing, but I'm not surprised. This is a natural outcome of a changing demographic which is happening too fast for many people. But that's the result of significantly high immigration numbers over the last four decades - which was a policy choice this nation agreed to.
