Stay classy, Arizona.
And this summed it up nicely.
Disgusting. Simply and purely disgusting.
Wow. Arizona just keeps getting dumber.
Agreed. It must be something Colorado puts in their water......
hey now lol
That's a bad article, because unless I've missed it, there's no actual picture of the entire mural.
You can't make a judgement one way or the other on this matter before you can even see what the entire thing looks like.
It could very well be a provocative political mural made by conniving leftists, especially in light of the recent immigration laws in Arizona. And this is on school property.
Here are some better pics of the mural:
Is a "conniving leftist" like a "terrorist"? Can you actually offer anything other than a vacuous circular argument as a definition of either term?
intr.v. con·nived, con·niv·ing, con·nives
1. To cooperate secretly in an illegal or wrongful action; collude: The dealers connived with customs officials to bring in narcotics.
2. To scheme; plot.
3. To feign ignorance of or fail to take measures against a wrong, thus implying tacit encouragement or consent: The guards were suspected of conniving at the prisoner's escape.
a person whose political position is liberal or radical; member of the left
liberal or radical
So I take it your answer is "no".
Nothing wrong with the mural that I can see, although there could have been more representation of other ethnicities/races. No blacks, asians, or whites are in the picture, and that may cause anger among some Arizonans, who are pissed at the onslaught of illegal immigrants and may feel that their cultural identity is being taken away from them. Maybe its not right for them to feel this way, but it is understandable.
Recent events have certainly cemented arizona's "cultural identity".
10 bucks says Arizona officially organizes a Klan rally in the next year.
So as its government property then racial discrimination laws have to apply.
I just hope tax money didn't go to this epic fail of a mural.
This story is very anecdotal. We don't know exactly what was said by whom. We have the word of the mural artist, who may have his own motivations to report on the alleged drive-by incidents in a way that supports his interests and point of view. He may be like posters in this forum who have already quickly generalized the alleged bad action reflected in the anecdotes to the entire Arizona population (at least non-Hispanics).
What a familiar posting style. I'm loving the bolds by the way
Anyway, I really hope these continued embarrassments are actually felt in Arizona. The last thing we need is for certain people there to take all the uproars as a sign they are doing something right.
Such as? What other motivations could an artist have to speak out about painting brown people in a mural lighter?
Only the left is allowed to jump to conclusions on this board with no supporting evidence.
They probably asked them to paint it a shade lighter and he took it as a racist remark due to all of the controversy. If one person mistook it for an African American and it was supposed to be a Hispanic kid I imagine it was probably a shade too dark.
And I thought radical christian groups were bad...
Oh I see it was "probably" the artist's fault he mixed up the browns.
If you don't like something someone has posted, do what we do and ask for a link or source. You know, the grown up thing....
There is no link or source, this is one persons word against another, there is no way of verifying either side. Thus all debate arising will be speculation unless someone has something else to add.
So then, its only "the left" that partakes in it right? What the hell are you doing here then, lefty?
Probably, since he can't seem to accurately depict a hispanic kid so that people know its hispanic and not black. He probably painted and then it dried darker than what he expected and then got pissed off when asked to repaint it so thought hed create some controversy. Sounds like a typical artist to me.
