  •  Thanks. I'm drinking deeply of your optimism- (4+ / 0-)

    It would be worth it if this bad law proves an epic failure becaue it arouses the conscience of the nation. The alternative, more laws like this in other states targeting yet more immigrant groups, is almost inconcievable.

      but just as Jim Crow laws were removed after a struggle there will be a backlash against Juan Crow.

      There must be a concerted voter registration effort made - and voter turnout in the years ahead.  These frightened bigoted racists have seen the future of the US and in many areas the future is named Lopez.  They are attempting to stop what is inevitable.

      It is just going to be uncomfortable while they make that attempt.  For it is the last gasp of a drowning man. A cry for a "white" society that has already died but won't accept it.

        the dying myth of the "white" society. However, I worry about the interim damage the people who believe in a lily white 1950s Disneyland-ish view of America will cause. They will be relegated further into oblivion...eventually...after voting, sweat & tears.
