America REALLY doesn't want anything BLACK living here. If you're not an ant, you're in big trouble in America. They can't step on you but they'll definitely shoot you down, choke you to death or incinerate you alive. America does not want Africans living on these shores any more, if she ever did. She does not mind Africans living in cages or dead. You don't treat bona fide citizens of a country the way Africans are treated here and have been since 1619. The Emancipation Proclamation did...

Wow! And this is what it's gon take. Cuz when one says immigrants especially in this country, folks think HISPANIC. But since black are every where including in South America...since 99% of African slaves went there....this makes a LOT OF SENSE to include them.

This is a very good thing, considering just how Black immigrants have been marginalized and discriminated against when it comes to asylum [and probably naturalization] in this country. We all remember how the Haitians were treated when it came to immigration, asylum, etc.; we all remember how Haitians were met at sea and turned away far from American ports, and how some were at our ports and still were turned away, or 'interned' in "refugee camps", i.e., American prisons.

All over South America there are amazing black people who are fighting for their rights...as the citizens look at them with blank eyes as they continue to let massa rape their country.

I think that its common knowledge that if you look at the music, spirituality, dress, food, speech patterns and some words and color of most of the Americas that it is AFRICAN.
