I think the Mexican -American Community is finally getting real about White racism in this country,for long time most in the Mexican-American community just like our community,we put the obvious racism and discrimanation on the back burner in favor of a dollar and a little harmony,Instead of planning on our own future and not depending on the kindness of the majority community
@BigMacWell said! I agree.
Wow! Strong pic, so true and I totally agree with BigMac. I think about Puerto Rico and how the majority over there want to become a state. As a Puerto Rican, i am all for self-determination but if we are racial profiling RIGHT HERE, what are they going to do if PR becomes a state? Profile the whole island! CrazyVal, thanks for stopping by my blog, I see from your pic, we both LOVE Angela Davis. I am loving your blog too. God Bless!
@NelescPeople are reacting to things without thinking about the long-term damage. Racial profiling is the lazy way of enforcing laws. And, as demographics change, like you mention, then what.Thanks! :-)
I love this pic. Arizona is about to have a very rude awakening over the next few months. I find it interesting that the even former head of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge, is giving the state the side-eye.
@KSTLots of cities and groups are planning boycotts. And many public officials are against it. That's good. But, this new law is very popular amongst voters in Arizona. So I don't think the politicians there will back down. Hopefully though lawsuits will overturn this law.
While I think the Arizona law is laughable - I'm still not sure about how to go about fixing the problems associated with illegal immigration.Most of the people who favor a more lax interpretation of the existing laws are those who don't own anything or those who are not harmed by immigrant workers lowering the pay rates in their field.
@UBJI think most people agree that the U.S. needs a real immigration policy and if we get that it will address the issues you're talking about.
Sad isn't it Val?!?
@ReggieVery sad. There must be a better way.
LOVE that sign!
