NAACP Trial: NAACP missing in Dallas Immigration March.

I just told blogger Reading in the Dark why the NAACP did not have a presence out there in the Big D, where half a million people marched -- and where I used to live ironically -- or perhaps not. I've always cared about immigration. Here's your/proof. Listen closely to this rap session with two white boys.

Meanwhile, here's a black woman saying something less positive as quoted in BET News: “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.”

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 boys 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:

“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: 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 litigants -- who have been ORDERED to produce a copy of Chief Dunn's Civil Defamation Deposition transcript at State's expense -- the pleasure of swearing at them.

“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 yet, let's take the word Spanish out and replace it with something else:

“I don’t feel any sympathy for them or their plight,” she said. “I’m tired of seeing drunk Black men lying on the street or on our thresholds. The government needs to send them all home.”

Now, ask me how she would have reacted if any one of a different color would have said something like that to her face?

Bigotry. It's just not for white folks anymore.

Precisely. That's what I commented on in the Daily Kos entry:

"I've got a Puerto Rican cousin by marriage and I just can't believe the bullshit hatred between "minority" groups. Rosa and her father Fijo rock and I can't imagine them not being part of our family. Jeezlouise.

It's just bullshit, bullshit, bullshit."

....and it is.

I love it. In fact I'll post with attribution. That's how we grow the movement so many haters like to quash.
