I saw an AP picture of this sign featured in the print edition of the LA Times story about an anti-immigrant law that was overturned in the shitty PA town known as Hazleton. “All legals served”, what a bunch of jerks. It’s not much of a leap to associate it with the white/colored signs of the Jim Crow south, and those stupid Blue Brothers statues just reinforce the awkwardness of the racial dynamics at play here. I wonder how they check for legal-ness, do they ask for passports at the door? Do they kick you out for ordering a cerveza or just attack you with piercing stares? If I lived closer I think I’d like to round up a few spanish-speaking compas to have a drink at this asshole bar, just to see how they enforce this act of provocation. At least this helps to put a dent in the well-meaning liberal lie of “we are all one race: the human race”, that worn out phrase also used by those that find it too difficult to include the concept of race in their class analysis.
If they were honest they would use a sign more like this one:
