Guitar virtuoso Carlos Santana had a few things to say at the Atlanta Braves “Civil Rights” Game in Georgia, held only two days after the state passed a bill, allowing law enforcement to demand immigration papers from any person they suspect of being illegally in the country, same as in Arizona SB 1070.
“This law is not correct. It’s a cruel law, actually, This is about fear. Stop shucking and jiving. People are afraid we’re going to steal your job. No we aren’t. You’re not going to change sheets and clean toilets. I would invite all Latin people to do nothing for about two weeks so you can see who really, really is running the economy. Who cleans the sheets? Who cleans the toilets? Who babysits? I am here to give voice to the invisible,” Said Santana in a press conference held after the game.
He had been booed off stage for saying “The people of Arizona and the people of Atlanta, Georgia, you should be ashamed of yourselves.”
