Arizona, it’s where racists go to legislate

In the event that you’ve spent the last few weeks under a rock, you should know the governor of the state of Arizona has signed into law a bill that allows law enforcement officials to racially profile people and ask them for their “papers” to prove that they are indeed American citizens.
Yea, you read right. The law allows people who don’t “look” American to essentially be harassed by the police and if they don’t have proper identification, they can be arrested and deported.
While this law seems to be dumbassery at its finest, I can confirm for you that things are exactly as they seem. Unless you’re naive, you can see that this law is clearly aimed at our Latino brethren and other brown immigrants who dare to have an accent and speak a language other than English. This mess, along with the dumbass comment from a California congressman about deporting American-born children of undocumented immigrants because they’re not born with American souls or something. *blank stare*
The fact that this shit passed makes the Arizona legislature the inaugural recipient of the brand new “Dumbass of the Week” award.

A simple survey of an American History book, a Google search or a mother-bleepin’ Wiki- page will tell these dumbasses that Arizona IS Mexico. Texas IS Mexico. California, New Mexico and pretty much the whole of Southwest United States ALL at one time, belonged to Mexico. In true historic fashion, we waged a war and stole it. *shrug*
For hundreds of years, America has traditionally been called the world’s melting pot. It’s been the place immigrants come to start over and build productive lives and businesses and families. They come to start their businesses from the ground up and to provide for their families for generations to come through nepotism and trickery. It’s the American way.
How dare you third, fourth and fifth generation Americans muster up the unmitigated gall to steal that chance from people because they are brown? I want to see your papers. Obviously YOUR soul is un-American if you are trying to cut people out of their portion of the American pie. If you think America is too full, take your evil, entitled ass back to the land of your ancestors like our neighbors to the south are trying to do. That way, if you go, they can come back.
*rolls eyes and mumbles* I got your American soul, ya evil bastid!

    I’ve managed to avoid commenting on any blogs regarding this subject, and I’m going to continue that cycle. But I do agree with the Award.
