A black woman was quoted in a BET News piece yesterday:
"I don't feel any sympathy for them or their plight," she said. "I'm tired of seeing drunk Spanish men lying on the street or on our thresholds. The government needs to send them all home."
And I said:
First, you ignorant slut, the men are likely not "Spanish," but that is the language that they speak. To get a better clue read this story on Latin/Hispanic culture.
Then go back and listen to the session with the two white (Irish) boys with whom I discuss the matter before folks start trying to deport every lazy black man because the only people who really had a right to be here were my Native American ancestors, you hater you. And people like Jackoff are still exploiting them.
Then you can't forget part of this influx is occasioned by our own government: (A2)
"Salvadorans are here because of the war in our country that Ronald Reagan supported," she said, referring to a deadly 12-year civil war. "A lot of people were killed, there were no jobs, and people had to flee."
Jomo Graham, there was never any doubt that he would be on the Mall. The San Diego native, married to a Salvadoran, said it was time once-silent voices were heard.
"I think there has to be a more honest and just policy for immigrants," he said. "I think we have had enough of policies that are inhumane and which marginalize and scapegoat those who are the backbone of America's economy."
Which is precisely what those two Irishmen and I talk about here.
PS: My buddy Martha also is Irish. She is Godmother to two Salvadoran young women whom I've watched grow up over the past ten years. Their mother works hard, they're not criminals and they pay their goddamn taxes. I said I wouldn't swear anymore but this is f*cking bullshit. At least I won't give my NH detractors -- who have been ORDERED to produce at State's expense a copy of Chief Dunn's Civil Defamation Depositition Transcript I took -- the pleasure of swearing at them.
