I had an idea (as I was steaming about how many backwards bigots live in Arizona).

What if no one with brown skin carried any form of identification in Arizona? (Of course pale skinned people could join in, just to show how few of them will get arrested). No Birth Certificate, no license, nothing.

That means that the police will have to arrest any brown-skinned person, or person with an accent they talk to. Let them arrest us all. Of course, citizens will get set free as soon as the police figure it out-- but let's make them figure it out.

I figure it costs a thousand dollars or so to make an arrest, especially if they have to investigate each case. So screw them... make them prove each person innocent so they can get rid of us.

So this is my idea. If you are in Arizona; simply refuse to carry identification. Just leave your license at home.

If enough people do this, the system will be unworkable sooner rather than later.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
