"I don't think I'm racist...I just want to feel safe in my own state." That's what one resident of Chandler, Arizona told the Los Angeles Times, seeking to explain the tough illegal immigration law just passed by the state. That person is not alone: 70 percent of likely voters in the state have said they support the new restrictions. Another said that it was crime—not race—that angered residents over illegal immigration. Even at least one victim of racial profiling, a Filipino teacher who says he is constantly pulled over by police who are looking for illegal immigrants, says people ought to cut Arizona some slack. "I feel sad for Arizona. We're always looked on as cowboy and backward," he said. "But Arizona is really a great place to live."
