    My question for these Blcak leaders would be: "Where have y'all been"

    I don't know if they're racists. Nothing they said indicates that they are.

    As far as what they actually said, they have a point. Many immigrants end up being competition for black Americans in jobs. More than that, immigrants often get benefits to start businesses that blacks do not. Therefore, it's easy to understand why some black Americans would have problems with increased immigration and amnesty for illegal immigrants. That said, I think the people in the article are approaching the problem from the wrong way. They should oppose unequal treatment of blacks by government and businesses rather than opposing immigration and amnesty.

    I got this from the linked article. There was a lot in there that was worthy of comment but this really jumped out at me.

    “Most policy makers who favor the legalization of nearly 11 million aliens fail to acknowledge that decades of high immigration levels has caused unemployment to rise significantly, most particularly among black Americans. They further fail to consider how current plans to add 33 million more legal workers within ten years will have an enormously disastrous effect on our nation’s jobs outlook.”
    Seriously?

    We're decades in to this problem, we've seen it coming, seen it developing, we alreadly know that it's bad even without an amnesty program.

    And you're still at a point where you need to compete with foreigners, many of whom don't even speak our language, for employment?

    Ummm... too bad, so sad, go fvck yourself.

    Or I should say, feel free to b!tch, moan, and complain about it, by all means, just don't expect me to care.

    And this isn't just a "black thang".

    I don't care what color you are, or which direction your roots run.

    If you're an American and you're in a position where you need to compete with an illegal Mexican for a bean-picking job...that bed you made? Go ahead and sleep in it.

    I'm thinking the, "they be gittin' more freebis than we are", argument wouldn't be all that good of an idea.

    This is one thing that irks me about pro-illellegal scum.Their job and livelyhood is not on the line so **** everyone else whose job and livelyhood is on the line due to an unnatural increase of labor. I bet if we started flooding the labor market with 30 million people with college degree and more specialized jobs then pro-illegal scum would start to care.How much do you think your job would be worth if we imported several million people who can do the job you?

    "Thayer taken our jooobs!!" Wonder how it'd be perceived if that skit was swapped out from the stereotypical redneck to a stereotypical gangsta!
