Being prepared to vote, to stand up for your: rights, thoughts, opinions, for those who have no voice. That is what it’s all about. Considering the current state of affairs & all hot topic issues at stake, this round of elections is nothing short of imperative! Hispanics, young voters, EVERYONE who can, should participate! Some would argue that they don’t vote because their choice never wins. Even if your choice doesn’t come out on top, a vote means: allowing your presence to be felt, & numbers most certainly do count. Special attention is dedicated to statistics when it comes to voting. Voting is you saying : “Present!” “I am part of this country too & will not be overlooked , under or falsely represented” We can not sit idly by during the decision-making process then become outraged if unjust or reprehensible laws are passed by inadequate leaders.

An elementary school in Prescott Arizona altered a mural that depicts the faces of its own students. Why? It has been reported that intolerant antagonizers where driving past the mural and yelling racial slurs, not only that but city councilman Blair had an issue with it as well. He stated on the radio that when he saw the mural and the fact that the focal point was a black person one question came to mind “Why?” The spineless jelly fish of administrators who are not only tolerating this bull crap but acceding to it say that it was nothing more than a touch up, brought on by issues stemming from an artistic point of view. That they thought lighter shading represented the kids “coming into the light”. I agree with the HuffPo reporter there are no two sides to this story, and it’s a shame that the story is not being diffused in a broader manner. I also agree with the fact that the school should have said NO WAY to the ludicrous idea of messing with the way the mural was. Ironic, yesterday on Twitter I read a tweet by someone who said he had gone out to a Mexican restaurant in solidarity, to show support to the business and its owners, he said “If they get rid of them you know who’s next”
It’s not about breaking or protecting the law it’s about breeding ill will amongst communities. These “United States” politicians are propagating and heralding division. It’s completely oxymoronic to say that there are no ill intentions behind the laws emerging as of late in Arizona. Bottom line: whether you’re out there personally slinging racial slurs and committing hate crimes or giving people a thumbs up and a green flag for such sentiments in the form of “legislation”it all amounts to the same thing = obtuse thinking. These so called heroes and patriotic protectors are after all politicians and if it’s one thing politicians are good at, it’s underestimating the public and believing that they are especially easy to manipulate in times of crisis . The obscuring of facts and fear mongering are they’re choice of weapons.

SHOW US YOUR PAPERS AND THEN WE’LL STILL DEPORT YOU
As long as you have your papers everything will be ok. People are overacting and propogating false fears. Here’s how false our suspicious and fears of SB 1070 were. Even though he clearly presented his papers ( ID and birth certificate) a Chicago man was detained for three days.
