New Arizona law shows battle with racism still exists

The Bellingham Herald

"Who is not from an immigrant family who came to this land of opportunity to escape war, famine, disease, poverty, oppression, etc., in their "old country"? If I saw only Native Americans out rallying against immigrants I might be a bit more intrigued than by the efforts of the strongly white majority. This is a human rights issue; it is a civil rights issue. It is about every day racism in our country and it affects each and every one of us."

This editorial includes a quote from Larry Estrada, director of the American Cultural Studies program at Western Washington University.
