I'm so sick of Arizona politicians I want to fucking puke out my ass!
An artist's decision to prominently feature a non-white child on an elementary-school mural in Prescott, Ariz., sparked so much controversy that school administrators asked him to "lighten" the child's face after a city councilman launched a campaign against the mural.
Oh wait, it gets better.
Steve Blair didn't like that. Blair, local city councilman and talk-radio host, inveighed against the mural on his show last month, according to the New York Daily News:
"I am not a racist individual," Blair said on a radio show last month, "but I will tell you depicting a black guy in the middle of that mural, based upon who's President of the United States today and based upon the history of this community, when I grew up we had four black families — who I have been very good friends with for years — to depict the biggest picture on that building as a black person, I would have to ask the question, 'Why?' "
Ah, the "I'm not racist, but I say racist shit" defense. My friend would call this a "crazyfolk." I would call him a racist fuck. This next part I like.
It is suspicious, though, seeing as how only 42 percent of Arizonans aren't white.
You know, I have to ask why with a large Hispanic population, how does Arizona get such racist politicians elected? Is it because A. all the whites are racist, B. Hispanic voting turnout is low, or C. Hispanic voters help elect them. I don't have the data, but one day these racists will be voted out in droves and Arizona will be a respectable state again.
