Re: People of Color' are All One? Latino Inmates in L.A. Don't Think So

I was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, in the town of Watts. In regards to the Black/Mestizo situation, I've noticed a few things: When Mestizos are a very small minority in a predominantly Black area, no one pays them any mind. In fact, many of the middle aged and older Black women will often be very friendly, and be a little sympathetic b/c the Mestizos (in this phase) are usually very poor, have many children, and don't speak English. This is my experience, so I don't want to...

I'd have to agree with you, if there was such a creature as a sovereign nation when it comes to economic/trade policy/labor pools. Walmart, Monsanto and the WTO have far more impact on US economics/trade policies/labor pools than our legislature. And, this whole illegal immigrant thing is merely shifting the focus.

Good point.

Noah, I feel you are absolutely right about this, although I have not kept up on my reading. We can see that prices are going up beyond the 2-3% annually that the government claims. It has to be greater than that with all of the money the government is spending on the military. To see why this is so, take the simple model of GDP = PI. For simplicity, lets forget about personal savings (which is at of near zero anyway) and exports. So, Gross Domestic Product must be in equilibrium with...

So what you're saying is that, as compared to a job at Walmart, the military is a bad deal? Last time I checked, you get educational benefits, full health care and discount housing. It's not about the money, it's about the middle class culture. Are you suggesting that attitudes in the Armed Forces are generally Left Liberal?

What I meant is what I said. You will not be instantly lifted to the middle class by enlisting in the military, nor is it a CONservative policy. Many in the military are not CONservative, especially among those who are of African descent. I would not know how many are LIBERAL, however I do know that there are a plethora of anti-war groups founded by former military/veterans and many active duty who have left leaning political ideologies. That's what I'm saying.
