How Much More Racist Can They Get?

Sure, Arizona's passing of SB1070 has made the state look like a collective of backward, inbred fucktards (to use the scientific term), but some people could still defend it. Granted, they're stupid and racist people, but they tried to at least talk a good game as to how this somehow was not about race and was only about "enforcing the law." You know, like those laws about how it's illegal to be Mexican.

But now they've really outdone themselves. A mural of school children at Miller Valley School in Prescott, AZ will now have the faces of children in it "lightened" to appease the racist-as-fuck community.

What's even more glaring is that the racists who demanded this (probably the same people who were continually driving by shouting racial epithets at those painting the mural) are still trying to pretend they're not racist!

How do they get away with such a glaring contradiction? Simple -- they're not upset that a child depicted in the mural isn't white, they're upset the mural doesn't "reflect the community." Even though the child depicted in the mural is a student at that school, which I think would pretty safely place him as a member of that community.

But I guess that's the beauty and brilliance of today's color-blind racism. They don't hate people because they're not white, they just happen to hate people who just happen to be not white...

“All Men are created equal”! The founders had it right, when attempting to form a perfect union and they also knew that they were not there yet but knew we one day would get there. Lincoln moved us forward as did JFK and LBJ. This Nation was founded by men of many nations and backgrounds. It was founded on the principle that all men are created equal, and that the rights of every man are diminished when the rights of one man are threatened.

It is my contention that this AZ law is not constitutional and will fail when challenged (unless, of course, they keep adding more amendments), pretty funny for this so called perfect law, that many internet blogs claim it was copied “Word for Word” from the Federal law, which I frankly do not believe, if it was then no amendments would have been made, right?, of course.

As for the undocumented workers, as was attributed to Ronald Reagan “It’s the Economy, Stupid”. When the economy is good we say let’s all celebrate “Cinco de Mayo, my brothers” but when the economy is down “it’s all your fault, you damn immigrant”. This too will pass. The real problem is the narcos, arms and people smugglers and that’s what the focus should be on.

Don’t you find it funny that no one ever voted for Brewer for Governor, it’s all about politics and getting elected, do not be fooled. Busy Brewer has passed S.B. 1070, no permit conceal weapons law, the famous Birthers law, banning Ethic studies law, (could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona) and if history is a lesson she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which failed when legally challenged) and the craziest one the boycotted Martin Luther King Day, not wanting another holiday, how crazy is that. I believe there is an undercurrent to their enactment of new laws, they real love following a distinct pattern. Poor Brewer, last week, she first she said her Dad had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (war ended 1945) and we find out her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955 (watch the spin doctors go into overdrive) and then she went to Washington and came back empty as always, poor dear.
