What If Other Immigrants Were Racially Profiled Like Mexicans in Arizona (...or the top ten the hard way by Senator John McCain)

                   Written and Illustrated By Lena Hopkins-Jackson

10. *Operation-Mama-Mia* The "We're Kicking Italians Back To The Boot They Came From"-Anti-Italian Immigration Law
*Ethnic Profiling*:  Mafia-lookin’,“Good Fellas” straight outta’ the cast of “The Sopranos”, guys who answer to ‘Pauly’, ‘Tony’ or any name ending with a vowel, loud-mouthed chicks with big, ‘mall-hair’ and sprayed-on tangerine-tans and  muscled-bound Guidos at the club wearing cheap suits with more oil in there hair than BP can spill. 
*Dangerous Imports* : knock-off Prada, Dolce & Gabbana  and Gucci sold at swap-meets and grocery store parking lots , Prego marinara Sauce ( too fattening, who cares if “It’s In There”… who needs that?)  And the entire “New Jersey Shore” and the “Desperate Housewives of New Jersey” cast; “Getthefrondoorouttahere, …seriously …LEAVE!”

9. *Operation-What-Da'-Bloodclot*: The "We Ain't Takin' No Jamaicans"Anti-Caribbean Immigration Law
*Ethnic Profiling*:  Along with islanders, anyone who says “Hey Mon!” with a thick accent, Black people with dreadlocks who wear those crocheted, rainbow-berets  and annoying, stringy-haired White boy Rastas who wanna’ be down; they can go too!

*Dangerous Imports*:  Ganja (we have our own),Red Stripe Beer, bad-bootleg Reggae concerts on DVD  and Poom-Poom shorts when worn near  construction workers!
