On April Fools’ Day, artist Ron English installed signs at the U.S./Mexico border (I guess he’d call them “art”) showing the requisite skin tone for people hoping to enter the United States.
Classy guy, that Ron English. Even classier was the ever so jocular commentary Mark Frauenfelder posted at Boing Boing:
Unfortunately this piece of sociopolitical satire is going to backfire because the Tea Party will find out about it and demand that it be permanently installed at every border crossing.
Isn’t he clever? Why, I haven’t seen a lefty call the Tea Party a seething mass of racism and xenophobia since … gosh, it’s been minutes. Time for a new shtick, jackass.
