If I got stopped and asked to prove my citizenship I wouldn't care.
and if you were harrassed daily because of your skin tone, thats completely cool with you, its completely fine that racial profiling is given the green light by police. lets create rifts between legal latino citizens and law enforcement and ultimately endanger communities since the people in uniform might suspect you are illegal.
unless the police ask for papers detailing the legality of caucasians in roughly equal amounts as "brown" skinned peeps, this is racism, plain and simple.
If we want someone in the country, lets help them be a citizen, if not lets kick them out.
sure, but does the end justify the means?
The politicians are too afraid to do anything on immigration because they want the hispanic vote and the majority vote
there is a difference between introducing methods to combat illegal aliens
and introducing methods for police to harass people based on skin colour. welcome to democracy really...
btw, illegals cant vote~~ just saying...
Most people in Arizona support immigration laws that are very tough, the latino community doesn't, the mexicans living in america community doesn't.
i wonder why the latino community dont support excessive abuse to be used against them based on the colour of their skin....
I applaud them for writing a bill that won't be popular with the media(which is left biased).
seriously?... "(which is left biased)
the aim of writing a bill is not to be unpopular with the media, it is to help the citizens of the state/country. i can write a bill saying that every 4th baby is to be eaten, anyone that disagrees is a dirty liberal and if the media portray it poorly, then it is clearly left biased and under the influence of the USSR. the soviets dont want you to eat babies, BUT I SAY FREEDOM!!!
what utter nonsense to bring to the table. watch some fox news and tell me the media is left biased.
Without reading every provision which I doubt anyone of these forums has done I doubt I can't as of now make an informed decision on the bill.
you dont need to read every provision. if you have a moderate amount of information on the bill, you can make an informed decision.
i dont know ALL the provisions to ANY bill.
I'm going to say that it isn't racist but is classified as such since latinos/hispanics will be the negative beneficiary of the bill.
[legal] latinos/hispanics [citizens] will be the negative beneficiary of the bill.
alright point out how it isnt racist.
If we want to falsely compare it is similar to taxing tanning
taxxing cancer pods to balance out the cost of the cancers to the health system is different to targetting people based on the colour of their skin.
very different. one is direct, the person has no choice in the matter, the police do (and these guys are not exempt from corruption/negatives. they are human). the other, non direct, a small minority of the overal caucasion populus would use cancer pods to look tanned, but it is based upon their preference to pay and use them.
What many fail to comprehend is that most americans are all for hispanics, mexican cubans puerto ricans that are here legally. We don't like people who are living here illegally and I can go onto the many reasons if desired.
no duh. other then some racists, its perfectly fine. USA is a cultural soup like australia. and again, illegals are illegal for a reason, they are often detrimental to society for the most part. (although they do bring the Arizona agriculture 4.7 billion since cheap labour is cheap labour)
i dont understand the next paragraph, i speak english only sorry. something something obamacare, trying to say that illegals get welfare? strange, something something, something... fgsdfgfdsshhtssfdg
I'm betting that 99% of the people "telling" us what this bill is are using no facts to back up their claim.
99%? thats a good bet IMO. you are on, my paypal is located over here....
They can blame the system, the man, or whitey for this but it is their parents fault.
there is a term used in DotA when you are about to get ganked and killed
as in, be careful about where you going because shiz has been spotted there.
thin line between generalisation and outright hate.
