The article presents the issue - correctly - from the standpoint of the employer discriminating against the young black man, then somehow "jumps the fence" to blame "illegal immigration". No undocumented worker took the black man's job. The _employer_ prevented that young man from working. The employer breaks the law by hiring the undocumented worker. The employer breaks labor laws in the way that they hire and employ these workers. There is no "illegal immigration" problem. There is an...

Then the the only reasonable explanation that we can deduce (based on your observation) is that Black women in Athens, GA lack manners. They require special training in social etiquette and Georgia customs. I'm also curious as to why if your mother, who I'm assuming is a southern woman, passed these great customs onto you, why didn't other Black mothers residing in southern areas pass these same customs onto their Black daughters?
