My sista YOU are sooooooo right on so many levels it ain't even FUNNY See folks don't remember when Reagan launched that amesty[sp] policy in the 80s where Latinos were able to stay in this country if they could prove they were here for 5 years or were born here...he would pardon them and they would get to stay. Well...when he did that...BAM! They all came outta walls,floors, roofs, closets. And this was mainly as you suggested to keep voting blacks from rising into the upper class status and to ensure that theyi.e. whitefolks will get devoted workers to help raise their kids, clean their home, landscape their properties and work like DOG [short of slavery] for little pay without ANY civil rights complaints. White folks are STILL plagued with this self-invented entitlement and self-appointed priviledge that ARE GONNA be their downfall....not ours. It's already HERE! But as you say they are still JUST TOO stupid to realize it yet. Cuz they see that for the most part there are still those low -esteemed folks who wanna be white, look white and surrounded by all that is white. There are many who are still brainwashed and COLOR STROKED!!!! But! This illusion will be short-lived. Cuz karma is HERE. And whitefolks are gonna get their azzes whipped big time and brought down to where they always belonged-below the curb of life. I see it now.
However, you pointed out a very poignant reality with blackfolks-we do not treat each other right. We are so disrespectful and lack manners....toward each other! And if we don't get a handle on that....then yeah...the Latino/Hispanic population is gonna take over ALL what OUR ancestors have set up for US!!!! They will reap the benefits from the blood, sweat and death of our descendants. If we don't STOP this self-destructive NONSENSE, we are gonna end up AGAIN on the wrong side of EVERYTHING! And my sista there are no buts about it! Only heartbreaking reality that has been tatooed on our heads for far tooooooo long to mention.
