Speak Spanish, Get Stopped!

If you happen to be speaking to someone in the state of Arizona make certain the language of exchange is not Spanish. A federal judge upheld an Arizona law which allows police to demand proof from a citizen walking the streets that he was born in this country or is a naturalized citizen. Conservatives constantly claim we should abide by the original intent of those who wrote the Constitution. Of course, men like Alexander Hamilton weren’t born in any of the original colonies. Sure, the original intent was to allow police to halt anyone and check for citizenship.

Governor Jan Brewer insists there will not be racial profiling. I guess Arizona will be just like New York City where over 600,000 were halted by police and it turns out the overwhelming number were either African American or Hispanic. I have a strong hunch no Wall Street folk will be stopped anywhere in America.
