Is “Dora The Explorer” An Illegal Immigrant, Or Is “Diego”?!?!…Only Arizona Knows???…
So…does Dora the Explorer look legal, or illegal?…exactly what do you mean by “explorer”???…is that a code word for maybe,..say ”illegal’???
“Dora is kind of like a blank screen onto which people can project their thoughts and feelings about Latinos,” said Erynn Masi de Casanova, a sociology professor at the University of Cincinnati. “They feel like they can say negative things because she’s only a cartoon character.”(WIKI)
Proponents from both sides have been circulating stereotypical depictions of Dora that are skewed to favor either side,depending on the opinion of the propagandist.
The depictions, whether through irony or protest, are being used by those who oppose and support Arizona’s law. On one hand she’s a likable symbol who many can relate to, and at the same time, perceived as an outsider who doesn’t belong anywhere.(SOURCE)
Many controversial and doctored images, much like the ones included with this article, have been circulating throughout the internet that bring into question the immigration status of the popular animated character.
Representatives from Nickelodeon declined to comment on Dora’s background, and her place of birth or citizenship have never been clear.” She has brown skin, dark hair and some experts who have studied the show say she speaks Spanish with an American accent.(SOURCE)
The question is controversial,and yet provocative, and based on the Arizona racial profiling law, its unfortunately legitimate.
So..what would you think if you were the average, everyday, racist-bigoted Arizona beat cop…is Dora legal,..or illegal???
…it’s at least worth stopping her and harassing her for her traveling papers…it is the State’s Right to harass whoever they choose to, right?…(SOURCE)
After they get finished with her,they will investigate every cartoon…starting with Dora’s accomplice in her illegal crime wave…Diego!!!!
What do you think?
