Gringo Masks for Mexican Arizonans

A little humor goes a long way to make a good point. Via animalnewyork:

Fight the pale-skin power. In response to Arizona’s new draconian SB 1070 immigration law, Zubi, an independent Hispanic advertising firm with offices in L.A., Dallas, Miami, and Detroit, has launched a microsite, Gringo Mask, to offer “support and dignity to the Hispanic community in the United States.”

    blacks and mexicans are far more racist than white people

  2. i find it fvcked that immigrants get so much free shit when we dont. maybe i should become a mexican citizen and jump the border back to america if i ever want to go to college for cheap. and when i commit a crime, ill be deported instead of imprisoned. wonderful.

      Well, why don't you, then, “unsane”? Seriously, if you really think that that population of people has it so much better than you do (which line of thought is somewhat pathetic and sad, if you ask me, because we live in America and obviously have enough money and resources to buy computers and software and internet service, which is a pretty fine life to me…), then why don't you trade places with one? Or why don't you just become one? If some of these “illegals” can fake their citizenship, it shouldn't be all that hard to fake your “illegal” status….

        Oh, yeah, that's right, Unsane, you wouldn't actually do any of that, because your life is pretty awesome, theirs sucks and you're just a whiny little racist twerp who, for some reason, hates his life and needs to blame it on somebody else in order to still feel like a man (or woman)….

      yeah their life is pretty effing sweet, I mean everyone knows being an undocumented manual laborer has always been a goddam cash cow industry, that's why everyone wants to be one OH WAIT

      you already did several hundred years ago when your ancestors stole this land from the American Indians and Mexicans…

    i served with many immigrants in the infantry, some of them weren't citizens yet and
    were willing to lay their lives on the line, why don't you grow up and start earning those privileges you
    are in such a hurry to reserve for white people, lumping all immigrants in with a small number of criminals that exist in every race,nationality and culture makes me sick and i take it as an insult to many of my former brothers in arms.

  4. Spot on.

    After living our entires in New York City & environs, 16 years ago my husband, our four young sons, and I moved to Tucson, Arizona. We cherish Arizona's exquisite natural beauty; the land, wildlife, vegetation, and the endless stretch of cloudless sky. Arizona's mix of Native American, Mexican, Central American and Chicano people and cultures has provided us with a constant source of new experiences, stimulation, and personal growth. Our blood relatives live on the eastern coast of the country and we certainly love and miss them. But the residents of Arizona, with their wide variety of skin, hair and eye color, music, food, and religious beliefs & practices have not only become our close neighbors, friends, and colleagues… are an integral part of our family now.
    By supporting and signing immigration law SB 1070, the governor of Arizona made a monstrously misguided, short-sighted and foolish decision which will ultimately be very damaging to the people of the state she purports to serve. I proudly support the recent decision of Tucson's City Council to sue the State of Arizona over the negative impact this law will have upon Tucson's economy, tax base and legal system. Most damaging of all, however, is the reality that the bill places Arizona's residents and visitors, police officers and the public, into adversarial roles.
    I am not sure by what standards the present Arizona Governor was raised, but my mama and daddy taught us that if one is ever in need, it is the family that can be depended upon to provide love, support, and safety. I believe it is my responsibility to stand up now and shout my protest long and loud against this law which is damaging the community that is my home and the people who are my family.
    Are you listening, law-makers and bill-signers?
