This action by the State of Arizona is just the latest in an on-going campaign to ensure the permanency of the underclass. The bigots who control the state government are making sure that there are no boots so that folks can pull themselves up by their bootstraps. In other parts of the nation the effort focuses on African Americans. In Arizona it focuses on Latinos. After all we white folk can't let any of them compete with us on a level playing field. Given a fair chance, we've seen that African Americans and Hispanics can succeed at everything -- but if we can deny them a quality education and constantly demean them, then they can be kept down in the permanent underclass. It's how today's GOP has built itself by keeping other folks down.
