Arizona's AB1070, a slippery slope

Pictures from the May Day rally against Arizona bill 1070, a racist bill. We drove down to San Antonio to participate in this rally because we feel very strongly about this bill. It's ridiculous to hear grown white men talk about recognizing "illegals" by their shoes, the color of their skin, and their clothes....and that's the criteria to get pulled over and asked for your papers? Wow. And English teachers can't teach if they have an accent? What kind of accent are we talking about here? I can't understand somebody from Georgia (sorry Kathy, but you do talk funny), and people from Massachusetts can't say their "R's" correctly, and the accent from Wisconsin always makes me laugh out loud. So...which accent are we talking about here? Well, it's pretty subjective, if you ask me.
