This actually has me a bit emotional right now. This isn't pertaining to the bill (directly, at least), but check this out-

Arizona Elementary School Will Whiten The Faces Of Its Own Students On A Mural Because Some Racists Yelled At It

An Arizona elementary school mural featuring the faces of kids who attend the school has been the subject of constant daytime drive-by racist screaming, from adults, as well as a radio talk-show campaign (by an actual city councilman, who has an AM talk-radio show) to remove the black student's face, and now the school principal has ordered the faces of the Latino and Black students to be changed to Caucasian skin.

I mean, what the FUCK.

There's the Bill. There's the upcoming removal of English teachers who have accents. Now there's this. I don't really know how to express my frustration. This is the worst slap on the face on top of some really backwards and pathetic decisions recently made in Arizona. As if the other stuff going on isn't bad enough, a message is being sent to kids that if their skin color isn't white, something is wrong with them.

You don't change your students' faces to white because racists drive by calling them n1ggers and spics. I pretty much wish for these people to be dragged out of their cars and fucking beaten, but I know violence wouldn't do anything to help.

god damn
