This is an incredible story are brings to light a lot of the problems with Arizona. The whites there are in large part RACIST lowlife, obviously!

People driving by yelling ethnic slurs because a mural shows black and Mexican children... my my. And complaining that the largest figure is black... well, sometimes the largest person in the room is black, so what?

Lighten their faces... so they'll appear "happier"??? Are LIGHT people happier? I don't think the morons yelling ethnic slurs at these artists represent "happy" people, do you?

Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, one of the great artists of the 20th century, had his mural in NYC effaced on orders from Rockefeller himself... it was too "communist"...

Censorship, fascism... these things are not dead in the USA, unfortunately, and neither is racism.

Arizona needs to be slapped down... perhaps some Federal troops la Mississippi Burning...

Lane said that he received only three complaints about the mural and that his request for a touch-up had nothing to do with political pressure. "We asked them to fix the shading on the children's faces," he said. "We were looking at it from an artistic view. Nothing at all to do with race."

You'll no doubt say that Lane is being disingenuous, but, of course, your (or any) interpretation is open to the same skepticism.

Interestingly, you've repeatedly argued that businesses who hire illegal immigrants should be held accountable for their actions, but that the immigrants themselves should face no penalty for their crime. One could, therefore, view anything you say with the understanding that you've often argued a hypocritical stance.

I could view anything you say as the drooling of an idiot, as you have clearly demonstrated that you are a RACIST.

When did Lane become an art critic? He's going to tell trained artists how to shade faces? LOL...

Face it, Arizona is a racist pit.

Thanks for proving my point. You need not think critically so long as you can cry "RACISM!" and avoid any challenge whatsoever. And I'll not "face it" any more than you'll attempt to understand anything that falls outside of your predetermined, race-baiting agenda.

You have decided that all of Arizona and me (6.6 million + 1) people are racists. I have decided that you (1) are. Who's generalizing and stereotyping now?
