Reject and Repeal SB 1070
Arizona’s SB 1070 isn’t racist... is it?
The marching song of the backers of Arizona’s new immigration law SB 1070 includes an oft-repeated verse that this law has nothing to do with race. Many times I’ve heard outraged supporters tell me that the law’s opponents use a broad brush to paint all of the supporters as racists and that there is absolutely no justification for this. During my monitoring of social media sites such as Facebook, I found there is even a page entitled, “It's not racism stupid! You are here ILLEGALLY!” where one can find such comments as, “I will have a party when the whole country has this law since I'm not in AZ. But we have to close the front door or else the roaches keep coming in.”
