Re: Mexicans Battle Blacks for jobs in the ATL.

First, Puerto Ricans never got what they wanted in New York during the 1960's. I suggest you study what happened to the Young Lords in Spanish Harlem or a number of the Latino driven housing movements that were born in the Lower East Side and the Bronx. All of the tough anti-eviction housing laws that benefit NYC tenants were due to Latino squatters who lived in neglected buildings. And if it wasn't for their resistance, landlords would not be required to provide heat and essential services...

HA! We should fear NO ONE , especially when we know that they are no more than impostors, interlopers, thieves, squatters, and savages in fine cloth. Africans need to get up off their freaking knees and stop living in denial and delusion about Arabs, "Islam", and ALL non-Black races of people on earth as far as Africa and the entire Black Race is concerned.

Hey everyone. I think that I was reading some time ago, maybe it was posted here by Oshun, that there had been an active squatters movement where people had been refusing to move out of the housing projects in southern Florida. This got VERY LITTLE press coverage outside of Florida. I'm wondering if this is a continuation of this protest??? Oshun could you post any more information about this if you have it? I appreciate it.
