Something to share

By now you've heard about the commotion caused by angry, dried up old racists out in Arizona. Unfortunately, there's a brown child who voted against his own interests in the Arizona State Legislature. He appeared on the CBS Evening News defending SB1070, because, who better to tell Latinos "not to worry" about being discriminated against, but another Latino?

I wrote Representative Steve Montenegro an e-mail and wanted to share with you, Reader. And you know who you are. Enjoy!

You ought to be ashamed of yourself for appearing on CBS Evening News carrying the water for white people who have as much regard for you, a little brown boy, as they do the protesters outside of the Capitol.
No matter how many times you cast a vote to humiliate, dehumanize and criminalize your own people, law -abiding U.S. citizens and residents, you will NEVER be white or white enough for Republicans.

I also think that it's quite telling that you have omitted biographical information on your House website. But I get that. You wouldn't want to tip off your masters in the Arizona GOP that you're actually not Anglo, although your dark hair, skin and features would be reasons enough to question your right to be at the Capitol at any given time.
You may want to start carrying your own papers. Representative.

Just an FYI.
