    Wiseone already commented on this in a different thread and explained that the coloring made the pictured children look creepy, almost like a mockery of a person using black face.

    They wanted it lightened to change the visual effects, not for some stupid race based reason.
    This is what happens when news outlets get a tiny bit of truth and run with it, making **** up along the way.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Are you sure of that? If you read what their city councilmember was saying, it seems that the child's race was an issue.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    Why am I not surprised?
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Again, why am I not surprised.

    A Councilmember is what?
    A politician.

    Any way to spin something into a political statement.

    Going by what Wiseone said, it was an extremely dark color on the picture of the child with white eyes.
    That's how I took his description.

    That to me, sounds like a poor job on color scheme.
    A lighter shade of brown combined with white eyes, wouldn't be as much of a drastic contrast than a dark brown.

    There can be no official source on the varied opinions of unknown people who drive by yelling.

    You either wish to make a racist out of someone, or you wish to think of it in terms of someone who has actually seen the painting and expressed their opinion of the painting in appearance.

    Its up to you, not everything has a ****ing source, my god Im so ****ing tired of that ****.

    I'm not completely sure why the school is doing this, but it really doesn't help Arizona try to claim they're not racist at all.

    Isn't using this story the equivilent of using Berkly California to paint the whole state of California as military hating nutjobs? The only thing I see this story as is "Waa Boo Hoo, we do not like Arizona solving their own illegal immigration problems, Waa Arizona is big meanie head so lets try to smear them some more" That's what I see this story as and I am sure most other with common sense see this story that way too.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
