Parody of AZ book banning

Wet Books: Smuggling Banned Literature Back Into Arizona

With any good satire, there is an active play upon an assumption or shared belief, be it true or false. In this video, a parody of smuggling banned books into Arizona is made, playing upon the assumptions about human and drug smuggling. As it has been said, humor heals, and in the situation with the Ethnic Studies programs it is better to resist and use humor to protest. However, I could imagine the purposeful misinterpretation of this video by conservatives who already base arguments on the conflation of narcos and migrant workers.
