Bad laws and beans.

Forgive me, but I almost laughed when I read that the Arizona state capital building had been vandalized with swastikas, done in refried beans. The laugh came from a long moment of cognitive dissonance. Swastikas and beans? So the state of Arizona passed a law that any Nazi could love. Yet the neo-Zazi hits the state. But Mexicans and those who ‘look illegal’ (most artists look illegal) hate it. Could it be the Mexicans and their allies are labeling the state and that law for what it is. Fascist. Using the humble food of beans. Or are there now Mexican Nazis? I’m so confused.

 This AZ law is really sucky. Do you look illegal? Your hair, your clothes, your shoes. Or that you can’t speak english. You just don’t look right, off to jail you go.

 The same thing is being done in Oakland CA over some illegal land I guess, a 100 square blocks in North Oakland. May be you look like a gang member. Or may be you are standing next to a gang member.

  “It would criminalize everyday activities, including “driving, standing, sitting, walking, gathering, or appearing” in public with suspected gang members… Violators could face up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines.”

It doesn’t even have to be a real gang member, just suspected. Artists kinda look like a gang when we all show up wearing black. Both these laws Suck. Follow the links if you want to help.

    The AZ law is soooooo sucky. I love the idea of a swastika made of refried beans–that is brilliant. Thanks for sharing this, cause I never would have heard of it otherwise.
