KKK (2) ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Wed, 12 Jul 1995 08:47:00 CDT From: Tom Murray Subject: English-only Amendments Against my better judgment, I've agreed to do a workshop for this year's progra m on racial and ethnic harmony at KSU. My topic is going to be the English-onl y movement, and how such an amendment would affect large segments of the popula tion in this country. Now, does anyone know how many states have already passe d amendments to their constitutions declaring English to be the "official" lang uage there? Can anyone provide a list of those states? And does anyone have a ny particularly juicy horror stories that have resulted from the passing of suc h amendments? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide. (If, by the way , anyone can provide any more recent bibliographic cites than, say, Dennis Baro n's 1990 book from Yale UP, I'd be grateful for them as well.) --Tom Murray
