So Kelvez and I now have the perfect disguise to cross the border into Arizona: The Gringo Mask. If we’re wearing Gringo Masks, I doubt we’ll be spotted as a “Canadian” and a brown person immediately, allowing us to mingle with the locals and get their viewpoints on AZ SB 1070, before switching into our alternative guises as furriners to test out the enforcement.
The Gringo Mask is simple and easy to make and use, per their webpage. Here’s my not-so-great Spangeleno translation:
The objective of this action is to support and dignify our Hispanic community, with the firm idea of going out and facing the Arizona Senate Bill 1070. Proud of where we came from, what we are and do for this country, go out into the street and erase all the stereotypes. Wear the gringo mask and see.
