Vanessa Bryant (Laker Kobe Bryant's wife) is a Proud Latina Against sb1070

I am so proud of Vanessa Bryant! What a strong Latina! The world is watching and she is standing up for her beliefs wearing a "Do I Look Illegal" t-shirt in front of millions of people! She is against Racial Profiling and against the racial profiling bill sb1070.

Thank you Vanessa!!

You are a very good mother and stayed with the love of your life through infidelity and through a very ugly trial. You, like Hillary Clinton, are a very strong woman and we are PROUD of you for standing up for your beliefs despite the controversy you will surely receive.

God Bless You Vanessa!

Video : Big Riot in Arizona University as Professor Sandra Soto of Social Studies speaks against the Racist Laws - NeoNazi Behavior of Redneck Cretins

See Video of Speech and Riot at the bottom of this page :

The Nazis also silenced their enemies in German Universities of 193x - Only the followers of Hitler were allowed to speak

Professor Sandra Soto speech, University of Arizona, she talks about SB 1070, and ethnic studies during a graduation speech.

Sandra Soto, Ph.D. : Associate Professor of Gender and Women's Studies

Sandra K. Soto is Director of Graduate Studies, Co-coordinator of the Chicana/Latina Studies Concentration, and affiliate faculty of English, Mexican American Studies, and Latin American Studies. She holds a PhD in English from the University of Texas at Austin (with a focus in Ethnic and Third World Literature).

Her interdisciplinary research agenda draws on Chicana/o and Latina/o literary and cultural studies, queer theory, and gender studies to offer innovative approaches to the overdetermined terrain of social relations, cultural representation, and knowledge production. Her book Reading Chican@ Like a Queer: The De-Mastery of Desire (University of Texas Press, 2010), replaces the race-based oppositional paradigm of Chicano literary studies with a less didactic, more flexible, framework geared for a queer analysis of the discursive relationship between racialization and sexuality.

She is currently working on her second book tentatively titled Feeling Greater Mexico, which pursues unlikely connections between critical transnational studies and U.S. ethnic studies and focuses on the Mexican photographer Graciela Iturbide. Her teaching interests include Chicana/o and Latina/o literary and cultural studies, feminist theories, transnational feminisms, critical race studies, US Third World Feminism, and queer theory.

I take off my hat before this Great Lady Vanessa Bryant - These are Great Americans

I love Brave People, of Courage and Valor, like Professor Sandra Soto of University of Arizona. They are able to face a riot of cowards and idiots that do not respect a University Ceremony of Graduation.

And I despise Cowards that follow a Lynching Mob for fear of being spotted and signaled.

Berkeley approves boycott of Arizona

Some excerpts :

BERKELEY, Calif.—Berkeley has become the latest California city to boycott Arizona in response to the state's new law targeting illegal immigration.

The City Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to restrict staff from traveling to the state on city business.

The council also called on city officials to look into canceling contracts with businesses in the state.

An Arizona utility commissioner said he's willing to pull the plug on Los Angeles if the city goes through with a boycott of his state.

In a letter to the city of LA, a member of Arizona's power commission said he would ask Arizona utility companies to cut off the power supply to Los Angeles. LA gets about 25 percent of its power from Arizona.

Turnabout is fair play. Boycotts are a bad idea.

Commissioner Pierce is a big blowhard. Here's the latest:

"Pierce admitted that if push came to shove, there's nothing or his colleagues on the commission can legally do about it. Interstate power sales are federally regulated."
