You have clearly never lived in Miami. Quite organized and QUITE racist.
Other than that, I agree with everything you've said.
I'm so thankful to be the child of immigrants and not have this "America is MINE!! Everyone else needs to go home or jump through Whitey's hoops to stay here!" view of this country. Why on Earth would Mexicans join in a struggle with us when we are actively seeking to boot them out of this country or trying to deny them even the most basic necessities?? We're all on this land illegally.
