What do you think about the possibility of the U.S. government using a crisis concerning a rising uproar from thousands of illegal mexicans to forward thier own agenda.

As a side note, I have some intersting information. When i became a US
citizen i was required to get printed by the FBI just like everyone that goes
thru this process. When filling out the paper work I noticed that hispanics
were not listed as a race. It was actually a subcategory underneath caucasians.
I am very perplexed by this to this day. I dont really think this means much
of anything. But the way I see it is that our own US government is classifing the
two clashing bulls genetically closer to one another. So why is it, even though
legally these to groups are in the same bag, that they are being antogonized to
hate each other so much?

First, BelowTopSecret.com is held to a slightly lower standard than ATS.
The examples you posted, while the majority not overtly racist, these style of comments usually end up inspiring more intensely racist rhetoric. For now, they seem to be more of an expression of frustrations (real or perceived), worded somewhat awkwardly.
I'm more concerned that the (theoretically) more astute members of ATS are swallowing the hook of the manufactured immigration issue and echoing the mindless rhetoric spoon fed via the mainstream media opinion shapers.
The issue is not as complicated as you are being led to believe. However, it's an election year and an issue needs to be manufactured in order to divide our opinions.
Don't swallow the hook!
