A picture is worth a thousand words! Any governing body that would think that posting a sign like this on the side of the street would lead to safety and not to the psychological and and sociological denouncement of a race of people is clearly out of touch with their global community. The only other sign postings of its kind us used to depict wildlife. My friends it is time to wake up and get involved. We can no longer sit on the sidelines. Those who profit from fear and misunderstanding are bringing the fight to anyone and everyone who wants a piece of the proverbial pie. It was o.k. to think that you could have a piece ,but now that you are actually reaching for it. They have a problem. What will be your response? What is happening in Arizona, and what are you going to do to change it?
A bill to ban Ethnic Studies was signed into law on May 12th 2010. Jan Brewer , The Arizona Governer on a roll after signing into law the new Arizona Immigration bill, shot another shot across the bow of equality by making it illegal to teach ethnic studies in the state.
Many Republicans say that the law does not target Latinos, however I have to ask our readers, whom do they think that it is targeting. Do we really believe that police will be stopping visiting Western Europeans and asking them if they have there “Papers”? Will the Arizona police force begin to stop Germans or Englishmen on vacation to their desert resorts? I think we all know the answer to that.
I hope that the Governer is not that naive. What are you thoughts? Does this law promote discrimination and racism, or is it an attempt to protect Arizona citizens. Let your voice be heard. For more on the story click here. Arizona Bill Targets Ethnic Studies.
A little Survey for ya!
