Reply to "People of Color' are All One? Latino Inmates in L.A. Don't Think So"

Faheem, I understand what you mean about how being angry at the illegals won't actually solve the poblem of the American corporations who keep hiring them. My anger isn't directed at their success or even their being here so much as the attitudes and behaviors they exhibit while here. Realistically, if I lived in a country full of poverty and corruption, and I had an opportunity to sneak into another country where I'd have a better standard of living and be able to send money home to support relatives, I'd do it. Most people would. You're right; if businesses would quite hiring them, if the governemnt would do their job and actually guard the border, this wouldn't be an issue. However, they DON'T do that, and it IS an issue. Even if things were to dramatically change, the damage has been done, so to speak, with the illegals already here. What I often see with the illegals is a refusal to assimilate or even just respect this country. There's a difference between not knowing English, and straight out refusing to learn it b/c of some bullshit explanation that this land really belongs to you. Some have even taken it up a notch and demand they we learn Spanish! There's a difference between having respect for your native country and then just spitting in the face of your host country by flying a Mexican flag on the American Independence day. Some organizations have even claimed a recpoquista (reclamation) of this country . If the Mestizos have little esteem for Blacks now, you think they'd treat us well if they ever did "reclaim" this land? So yeah, I think economically it makes sense to oppose government inaction and those wealthy businesses, merchants, and such who allow this to happen, but if you don't like the idea of being completely overun by illegals and having your culture and countr shit on, the opposing the act of illegal immigration itself ain't such a bad idea.
