But by all means, keep telling me the border patrol laws aren’t racist, guys.
Unpopular opinion; I obviously don’t agree with anything that has to do with what Arizona is currently doing with it’s immigrants right now. I hate Jan Brewer, if I could, I would swing a crow bar to both her knees then finish her off. But the reason he was actually stopped and detained for so long wasn’t because of his ethnicity, it was due to the radiation. The guy doesn’t look like your ‘typical’ Latino. His face is clearly white. Border Patrol didn’t use common sense after he explained to them that he was seeking treatment hence why the radiation was going off. Not everything that happens to a minority is based on the sole fact that they’re a minority.
