First off, I want to say sorry to all the Mexicans in Tucson for having to go through more bull than what these politicians are serving on a daily basis. I was born Massachusetts but lived in the Southwest since I was 13 (about 21 yrs). Unfortunately, I have seen a lot of racism and bigotry throughout my years, so I know it's there. However, I must stick up for myself when it's articles like this that make it like all white people are racist. I know that's not what you my think(although, idk), but it's what you're saying.
I am not racist, I don't promote it and I will not tolerate it. If I look in my roots, I go back to French/Canadian/Irish/Indian. I'm proud to be me. but I don't look at other cultures/races/regions and say that they are all a certain way. So, I'd appreciate it if you don't look at all of us and think that way. I only say this because, lately as I'm shopping or doing stuff on South Side of Tucson, people have been giving me some mean looks, as if I supported this law.
I don't support the law at all. I am against racial profiling and I wish we didn't have such a Republican state even though Tucson is more of a Democrat. I think we need a statewide campaign to get the Republicans out of office and get the Democrats in there. I never vote Republican, yet they get elected every time. And you wonder why our state is so messed up. Look at any Republican run state and see how there budgets are how they are taking stimulus money even after voting against it.
We need better solutions than always playing the blaming game. Let's get them out and get a person who knows the southwest better, a Mexican/Indian!
However, by reading the comments from rex swift(supposedly), I'm so frustrated that the republicans don't want to meet halfway anymore. They pretend like they're doing something for the country, when really they are just stuffing the pockets of big businesses and the small ones will disappear because of stifling competition.
I pledge allegiance to the Walmart States of America.......
I will not lose hope though. If we look at history, this is where we get our hero's from. This is the time for the Barrack Obama's, Dennis Kucinich's and Janet Napolitano's in the world to stand up. And I'm certain that if we stick together as a community, the death of our government will soon be availed.
