There are many theories that explain why Sheriff Arpaio picked on Latinos.

One good theory to know is Black Feminist Intersectional Theory. When you hear the name of the theory, you might not think that it relates to Hispanic people. However, it does. Black Feminist Intersectional theory explains the dynamics of how black people are seen by white people, as well as by our Euro-centric society.

Hispanic people are regarded along the same lines as Black people, so even when we are talking about Hispanics who are not African, it’s a good theory to know.

According to Black Feminist Intersectional Theory, white women are thought to be the weakest yet the most civilized and spiritual. On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, black men and women are regarded as being equally the least spiritual, the least civilized and the strongest (to a bad extent).

When it comes to strength and weakness, white men fall somewhere between blacks and white women, and they are the most civilized. Society basically looks at Hispanics in a very similar way as black people, which makes them vulnerable to harassment and prejudicial judgments.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have a good sense of the realities that Black Feminist Intersectional Theory exposes for blacks and other minorities in American society.

These prejudicial judgments have taken many shapes over the years, including that of Sheriff Arpaio’s actions. The Sheriff instructed officers to sit in their vehicles, keep an eye out for Hispanics, and pursue them as probable “illegal aliens.”

Of course, the old bat got into trouble for his intolerant actions. Judge Snow, a U.S. District Court judge, gave him a grave warning that it was time to stop the ridiculousness. The ridiculousness did not stop for the next two years, so Susan Bolten angrily held Arpaio in criminal contempt.

There was a time when more people used to act like Sheriff Arpaio. Nowadays, it is considered to be less acceptable to act like that. In fact, the political climate has completely swung the other way to a point where you can’t even search out and expose criminals if those criminals tend to be a specific ethnic group or religion.

In 2017, a huge event happen that blew Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey away. Sheriff Arpaio was about to get his just deserts for being such a jerk all of those years when, from out of left field, Trump let the guy off the hook.  Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter

It was the worst thing to have happened to Jim and Michael in years—ever since they had been scarily detained by the ruthless sheriff.

So, as ex-sheriff of Maricopa county, Arpaio is now thinking of running for the state senate. If there is anything amazing about Arpaio, it’s the fact that he is so old and still getting involved in politics. He is in pretty good shape for an 85 year old man.

It makes one wonder whether he’ll still be on his two feet and in politics when he’s 95, or 100!
