Blatant Racism is Blatant
20 August 2010
Right on the front page of CuernavaCasas.com.mx, there is an important apology targeted to white people from Arizona; allow me to share:
So if you're from Arizona, white, and politically inactive, you are still disqualified from renting homes through this company. The hypocrisy of their 'sorry' apology is astounding, being so remarkably racist itself. Hell, at least Arizona's lawmakers are making an attempt -albeit poor and thinly veiled- to make SB-1070 to not seem so racist.
One thing CuernavaCasas.com.mx has going for it, at least, is that it openly stated stipulations that allow whites to prove they are one of the "buenos gringos." However, SB-1070 does have quite a similar stipulation that makes it okay; all foreign looking people have to do is remember to carry four forms of ID at all times. The only IDs allowed being a state issued drivers license, a passport, and a birth certificate.
Some might argue that the types of IDs allowed don't even equal to four possible identification types, but Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Joe Arpaio (commonly referred to as America's toughest sherrif) have assured U.S. citizens that SB-1070 will not affect them, just so long as they don't look or are acting like they're from another country.
That's right Canadians, you better stop drinking your terrible beer and being so damn nice, they're out to get you. Better American up and get a tan or something, I'm sure adding some pigment to your pasty skin will assist in avoiding deportation.
