I just completed this poster after yesterday's Supreme Court ruling that upheld the part of Arizona's SB1070 law, which allows police to profile by investigating people's status to go into effect. If the bill goes into effect it could only make Arizona's human rights crisis even worse.
The President can and should intervene. Please tell President Obama to stop SB1070 by refusing to deport it's victims. Click http://bit.ly/potus1070
This poster is a collaboration between myself, Roberto Lovato, and Gan Golan. Roberto explains the context of the piece and the phrase, "Juan Crow."
As the country starts waking up to the effects of the Supreme Court's historic decision upholding the cold heart of Arizona's SB1070 - the "papers, please" clause- we will need to understand what it means beyond Arizona; We urgently need a deeper understanding of what's happening to our country, our community; Everybody needs to understand that Jim Crow and other racism are still alive ;that it is birthing another racial era, the era of Juan Crow.
You cannot fight-and defeat-that which you cannot name or understand. As different laws with different names in different states begin rearing their ugly head, our common enemy must have a common and recognizable name. The name that will define our common struggle is Juan Crow.
