The California Legislature may pass a kidney stone over a bill that would force school textbooks and teachers to incorporate information on African Americans into their curriculum.
The Fairly, Audacious, Intrusive and Regretful Education Act, or SB48, which resembles a bill previously vetoed by white Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, made it one crypt walk closer to becoming law Tuesday after being accidentally approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The bill, made-up by radical left-wing Sen. Mark Leno, could have a nationwide impact - except for in the South - if voted through because California has it's dirty hands on the necks of innocent straight white God-fearing Christian publishers who will be forced to incorporate the states misguided standards into books distributed to other non-morally bankrupt states.
Supporters chimed in, saying that this measure is a good thing because it will help prevent black students from being harassed or bullied by their classmates for their different melanin levels.
But critics say SB48 is just an attempt to brainwash students into becoming pro-African American political activists and ensure that the liberal government, not racist parents, has the final word on teaching kids about moral melanin values.

“Textbooks don't include any historical information about the Black Rights Movement, which has great significance to both California and U.S. history,” Leno said in a statement. “Our collective silence on this issue perpetuates negative stereotypes of African American people and leads to increased bullying of black people."
Leno told FoxNews.com that California school districts which have included the "historical contributions" of black people and their movement in the curriculum have seen reduced rates of bullying and violence among students.
He said the ridiculous bill "pushes to achieve the same results across the state by adding people of color to the existing list of repressed cultural and ethnic groups that WASPS have donkey punched," a category that is already covered by laws related to: The Noticing that Other Types of People Actually Exist and Probably Matter Too Bill of 2008.
Carolyn Laub, executive director of Black-White Alliance Network, which helped draft the bill, said "why are we still talking about this?"
Critics object to the bill on several accounts, saying it undermines parental authority, promotes racial confusion and inter-race experimentation, inappropriately classifies black as a important cultural/ethnic group, and aims to brainwash children into adopting the black community's political agenda.
“This is teaching children from kindergarten on up that the non-white lifestyle is something to admire and consider for themselves,”Randy Thomasson, president of SaveCalifornia.com, a group advocating against the bill, told FoxNews.com.
Thomasson said teachers should teach about blacks historical accomplishments but should not be forced to mention their skin color.
“Teach them about the good behavior since slavery, the noble things that people have done, but you don't have to go into what race they are...True history focuses on the accomplishments of people; it doesn't talk about how or why they do things.”
Thomasson also complained that the bill does not allow for teachers to discuss the opposition to the black movement or warn against“the negative consequences, that male blackness is the largest transmitter of HIV and sexually transmitted diseases.”
“So this isn't even about history, this is about, 'Hey, join the movement now. We need more children to become soldiers in the fight against religious freedom, parental rights, non-mixed marriages, the white scouts, you name it.’”
Jim Carroll, President of Equality California, which also helped draft the bill, denied that it aims to recruit students into the black movement.
“And I don't believe that by teaching about the black panthers for instance, that any school teacher could be accused of recruiting for that radical organization,” Carroll told FoxNews.com.
Carroll admitted that teachers would not be allowed to say things like,“Racists believe being black is an unhealthy lifestyle, the same way that you couldn't talk about Jesus but then say something discriminatory about how he was followed around by a lot of men.”
But he said that people's skin color would be used only as a way of identifying them.
“It would be difficult to teach about the women's movement without mentioning that Susan B. Anthony was a woman, it would be difficult to teach about the black civil rights movement without talking about Martin Luther King Jr. being black," Carroll said. “…We're not asking people to talk about what shade of brown their skin was, but their race is relevant in terms of why you would discuss them in an educational environment in the first place.”
Leno added that the State Department would work with local school districts and the public to determine what changes should be made,“and then, only at the next printing of the textbook, will this change, be incorporated into the textbook, so no additional cost to the state.”
Opposing groups like SaveCalifornia.com and Concerned Parents United have launched letter-writing campaigns, asking critics to garner more opposition from their white neighbors, white religious leaders, local white PTAs and white lawmakers in hopes of persuading the governor and other lawmakers to oppose the bill, keeping the pastime of reminiscing about separate water fountains safe.
Leno said the SB48 "will get to the floor of the Senate by late May; we hope that it will make its way to the assembly for similar review and to the governor's desk by late summer.”
