Is Arizona's ethnic studies ban racist?

A new Arizona law bans ethnic studies classes in public schools that "promote resentment" of other racial groups. State Schools Superintendent Tom Horne says that the legislation is "designed to get schools to teach kids to treat each other as individuals and not on the basis of what race they were born into." But the measure has drawn criticism from educators and citizens who say the classes don't promote resentment. What do you think?
