    I think its stupid and a trivial thing that's ridiculous to be upset about. That said, its on state property and if the state wants to change it that's their perogative, even if its an incredibly dumb one.

    Weird.. its almost like, if liberals thought like you think they do, that'd actually be true.

    Then why did he have to ask why a brown person (the kid it's based on is actually Latino, not black) is at the center of the mural?

    I'll quote the City Councilman and Right-wing Talk Radio Host one more time:

    "I am not a racist individual, but I will tell you depicting a black guy in the middle of that mural, based upon who's president of the United States today and based upon the history of this community when I grew up, we had four black families - who I have been very good friends with for years - to depict the biggest picture on that building as a black person, I would have to ask the question, 'Why?'"
    You see no problem with what he said - and he's so far out of his ass that he didn't even bother to research that the kids portrayed in the mural are from Prescott - it has nothing to do with the President at all.

    The guy's a douche. Defending him only brings you down.

    I'm honestly surprised that in 2010 we still deal with stupid crap like this. One would think we would have evolved way past this by now. Sadly, there will always be racist morons like this.

    The sooner these people admit to being racists, own up to being human, the better off we will be.All this crap will be over when, as men, we state that there is one race, the human race...
    The painting must stay, unaltered.
    Right now, Arizona and the entire world have a long way to go.
    To those who yell racial slurs from their automobiles, I'd say "remove your fat ass from your vehicle and repeat that insult again, to my face, if you are man enough(and foolish enough!")

    Art simply is, therefore it is. I would never consider altering one of my works for such a demented reason. Take it down if you must, or leave it be.

    White trash supremacists don't need a reason to yell racial slurs.

    EDIT: This reminds me of the Taliban destroying the Buddhas. Twisted.

    But the biggest human being on the mural happens to be..........

    BLACK!! OH.MY.GOD!!

    Said the City Councilman:



    Translation - I have lots of black friends, and I like black people, as long as they know their place.

    That says it all, folks.

    IS this one of those wah boo hoo we don't like states handling their illegal immigration problem and banning classes that promote racism so we are going to use some story to paint the whole state as a bunch o racistf loons?
    "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
