I Only 'Look' Latino Pull Me Over! Evil Ways

Carlos Santana's hit song Evil Ways dedicated to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. STOP SB1070!!
As for me I am not latino, but I have olive skin that tans to well and sadly I live in Arizona, and I have been profiled a couple of times

Every family has dirty little secrets that are never discussed in polite company whether it’s a drug-addicted nephew, promiscuous sister-in-law, or alcoholic uncle who cannot hold a steady job. America has a dirty little secret that existed at the country’s founding and persists in 2012, and although it is exposed from time to time, Americans like to keep quiet about it out of shame and embarrassment. Our dirty little secret has been whispered about for the past four years and was exposed in a widely circulated photograph on Wednesday.

The photograph of Arizona governor Jan Brewer shaking her finger at President Obama is about more than accusing the “Obama administration of turning a blind eye to illegal immigration because migrants will help Mr. Obama register more Democratic votes.” Brewer’s actions were more than disrespect for the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth, they were outward expressions of white supremacy befitting a pre-Civil War plantation owner scolding an errant slave who forgot to empty the master’s chamber pot.

It is no secret that Brewer harbors racist views toward Americans whose skin color is anything but lily white. She promoted and proudly signed the racial profiling law that requires law enforcement to detain and question Arizona residents who appear to be illegal (not white). The not-white is equal to not-American meme began with the birther movement and continues in not-so-coded racist campaigns of the four remaining  Republican presidential hopefuls. Brewer shaking her finger at the president characterizes white supremacists’ contention that African Americans are inferior, not like us, and certainly not real Americans. Why else would a pathetic buffoon like Brewer feel comfortable scolding the President of the United States in public and full view of photographer’s lenses? Because she feels superior to a Black man even though his office, intellect and integrity dwarfs her racist and witless mind.

The Republican presidential hopefuls’ racism shows no sign of abating and their racially charged rhetoric is finally bringing America’s dirty little secret to the public’s attention. Each candidate has, in their own calculated manner, tied President Obama to their faulty characterization that African Americans are lazy and not really Americans. Willard “Mitt” Romney’s campaign catch-phrase, “Keep America American” was lifted from KKK literature and implies that getting rid of Obama will keep America American as if the President is a foreign interloper. Romney’s cult believed Blacks were cursed until 1978 and they changed their doctrine after it became politically incorrect to portray African Americans as inferior.

Newt Gingrich called President Obama the “food stamp president” and he is running an overtly racist campaign to appeal to white supremacists that permeate the South, and as the nation is discovering, the entire country. Gingrich went so far as recommending that to teach lazy minority children the value of the white work ethic, they should clean their white classmate’s toilets. Gingrich was not only referring to African Americans because he said that Spanish is a ghetto language imputing laziness to Spanish speaking Americans. Alan Grayson, a former Democratic congressman from Florida, called Gingrich’s racist panderingthe  most “overtly racist campaign I’ve seen in the country since George Wallace.” It is no coincidence that Gingrich ramped up his racist rhetoric in South Carolina where the Confederate flag still flies over the capital; his ploy propelled him to victory and front-runner status in the race for the Republican nomination. Gingrich is aware that racism sells in America.


Rick Santorum used a white supremacist theme from Birth of a Nation with its imagery of ignorant free African Americans who are an encumbrance on white America. He said, “I don’t want to make black people’s lives better by giving them somebody else’s money,” and it is a favorite theme of conservatives who characterize President Obama as stealing white Americans’ money to give to his lazy African American “bros” in return for their votes much like Brewer’s accusation against President Obama. Santorum’s racially charged comments are in stark contrast to his alleged Christianity that teaches love for all humanity and charity for those in need; unless they are African Americans.

The laundry list of racism and white supremacy is growing every day, and the mainstream media is keeping America’s dirty little secret under wraps. But all that changed when Brewer stuck her vile little finger in President Obama’s face as if she was scolding a disobedient slave, or an uppity Negro who has the audacity to wear a suit and sit in the Oval Office. Conservatives celebrated Brewer’s disrespect for the President because she “put the black man in his place” but they are ignoring one critical point. The Republican drive toward apartheid will backfire as the country’s population becomes “darker” and one can only imagine the rage among African Americans at the sight of a lying white supremacist shaking her finger at the first African American President who has more integrity and intelligence than ten-thousand Jan Brewers.

America can only prosper when all citizens are valued equally regardless of race. It is telling that besides the media’s reluctance to assail GOP racism, Christians espousing brotherly love are also silent. It makes sense though, because although not all Christians are Republicans, nearly all Republicans are Christians and during this campaign, racist Christian Republicans are finding success pandering to white supremacists and racist voters.

America’s dirty little secret cannot be kept quiet any longer despite the media’s best efforts to protect the GOP. They kept the secret under wraps during the 2008 general election and they are on par to repeat their hush-up of GOP racism in 2012. However, Republican presidential hopefuls brought race into the election and now, a cretin from Arizona displayed white supremacy toward the President in one photograph and although Jan Brewer is a useless dolt, she did America a favor by revealing the dirty secret that racism and white supremacy is the purview of the Republican Party. Just don’t expect any show of gratitude from decent Americans; regardless of their race.

The conservatives can't win an election without cheating or gerrymandering. They know their views are in the minority and insist on imposing them. There are plenty of crackpot millionaires who are happy to underwrite these campaigns and hire lobbyists. They also know their lily-white demographic is fading with a population that is getting"darker." Creatures like Brewer and Gingrich make me ashamed to be American.

Amen to that crazywaterspring..I agree 100%!

Oh, yeah! That Jan Brewster is one twisted piece of crud (scraping bottom of shoe). What's up with Newt Gingrich's comment about toilet scrubbing? Haven't heard that, though it's no wonder. The sound of his voice makes me want to retch!

LOL yes! She so totally is...shall I fetch you the barf bucket and some Pepto Bismol for that nausea?

I may barf up a lung! Snickers..

It's sad but these politicians are just mirroring the fears of their WASP constituents who dread the idea that their numerical majority, and the power that goes with it, are steadily eroding. They can't accept this and will stoop to any tactics to fight it... The rich also want to keep ripping off the poor as long as they can, that's why they are fighting "Obamacare" with such vehemence.

Well said crotus!
Here is another bomb...her son is a convicted RAPIST! for more on this read...http://www.experienceproject.com/stories/Think-Jan-Brewer-Should-Be-Impeached/2966980

Well, being his mom probably drove him over the edge... Clearly however the apple does not fall too far from the tree. ;-)

LOL , though I would have to differ just a bit, in that being her son, with a mother like that, probably drove her son to be the criminally insane racist that he is :)

That's basically what I meant to say... ;-)

We are both right!
