I am ashamed of my home state.
I am ashamed that our non-elected governor, Jan Brewer (Janet Napolitano never would have tolerated this nonsense), signed this vile piece of legislation into law.
I am ashamed that she felt she had to do so because vetoing it would have shot down her election prospects.
I am ashamed of the Republican Party for demonizing brown people.
I am ashamed of the people who write to the newspaper sporting the hoary old cliche, “What part of illegal don’t you understand?” Obviously there’s no part of “human rights” and/or “compassion” you understand. You also have no clue about the concept of “racial profiling”–oh noes, that couldn’t happen here. Even the Brits know better than that.
I am ashamed of Jan Brewer for somehow thinking that repeating the words “Racial profiling is illegal” and “We have to trust our law enforcement,” over and over like a mantra (or a robot), ensures that it won’t take place.
