Like Asians, the Mestizos will identify with the "oppressed people of color" line only long enought to gain numbers, influence and a hekping hand, and then it's THEM doing the discrimination.


UppityNegress, while your argument is logical it does not address the complexities of Black men and women being against immigration illegal or otherwise. We do not have to be anti-illegal or legal immigration if one simple thing happens; the enforcing of the laws that are already on the books that says companies will be fined if found hiring men and women who are not citizens of this country. So if any position should be taken by black men and women it should be that one!

I agree. But I do not see how these two positions are mutually exclusive. They should both be done.
