A typical misinformed person who isn't actually familiar with the law, says:

Quote:
"What caught our attention was the absurdity of this law, and the notion that we all must look a certain way," continues the Cuban-American executive. "Once we talked about it, my creative team came back with the idea of the mask and the website [which went live on April 30. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are also being used to spread the word]. Basically, this is all a satire of what is happening in Arizona."

To take part in this satire, all you have to do is go to Gringo Mask, choose the mask that best applies to you, download for free, print it, cut it, put an elastic band around it and… bingo! New face, new immigration status!

Isn't this considered offensive? I mean, assume Caucasians created "Hispanic" masks and wore them. Wouldn't the race card be flying like it was going out of style?

So where was this Cuban when they were rounding up Haitians that just arrived in Miami in a boat?

The hypocrisy is mind-boggling. You never see La Raza protest when it's others being deported. They have their own agenda and really most of them aren't so stupid that they think the WHOLE world can move to the USA illegally, they just insist the WHOLE Latin American world move here illegally.

Remember the furor and outrage last Halloween when the "illegal alien" costume appeared with the mask of an off-world alien? And they were offended by *that*? Yet gringo masks are ok?

What's good for the goose is good for the gander, so I'll be offended and hereby express my indignation at such racist behavior. I think I need some compensation, Mr. Obama!

I'd say these masks are a step above the bandana face coverings most wear..........

It's a free country and they have a right to make masks. If a citizen feels they have to wear a mask to keep from being deported, so be it.

A "citizen"?Why would a citizen get deported?
If we actually enforced our immigration laws,i could see riots..
Protests and violence pushed by the Ethnic front groups and..
Pro-Amnesty Open border crowd.

They have a right to make masks. They also have a right to be called racist ethnocentrist hypocrites.


Besides, how exactly is a paper white person mask going to keep a citizen from being deported? I think you need to do a bit more homework on immigration laws and enforcement in this country.

It's just as racist and offensive as those illegal alien costumes that got their panties in such a knot. Except, in my opinion, the "gringo" masks are worse because it also implies that Americans, no matter what color, have no right to enforce immigration laws.

ETA: Forgot a "t."

Oh, ok. So you think it's OK for us to wear illegal alien masks also?
