Update on Arizona immigration bill

Oh dear. The governor of Arizona has signed the bill into law that I posted about just below.

You can read about it here.

Now take a look at a comment someone made:

The tea partiers must be organizing one heck of a protest against this law that allows police to stop anyone they feel *might* be here illegally and demand proof of citizenship, right? This is big brother government at its worst, making American citizens of hispanic descent feel as if they have to carry around their birth certificate or citizenship papers in order to "prove" they belong. So where's the outrage from the tri-cornered hat crowd?

Where's the outrage, indeed?


  1. White people (especially of a certain age) aren´t included in this questionable questioning...we´ve always passed for genuine human beings!

  2. Oh, I agree with you, Leonardo. It's sickening.

    And I lived through the nightmare years in the South and so the recent reemergence of essentially racist language and behavior is very troubling indeed.
