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...
