10's of millions in fact, the employers LOVE the illegals because they
can treat them like dirt and have them deported if they cause any
problems and do not pay workmens comp, insurance, etc etc.

If anything, that's what I think is the more important part of that video. Not this "reverse racism" crap. I would like to point out that "reverse racism" is, guess what, EQUALITY. "Racism" isn't a word that ONLY refers to one group of people. Get a dictionary.
I would make a bigger deal about the taxation without representation bit, but we're obviously more concerned about "reverse racism".

I think what gets me, the most is that the state government needs to crack down on who gets welfare, And food stamps ect. I went with my aunt one day to the local DHS office while she was signing up for food stamps, Which she gets all of $12 a month food stamps. Go figure. But there were folks in there with fur coats on and brand new cars signing up for food stamps and getting them. Dressed up real fancy and everything. Then you have those of us working our butts off to pay for food, gas and to pay the bills. Yet we get our clothes from the local churches or from yard sales. I believe that White construction workers should get what is coming to them. My husband works on steep roofs. He risks his life every time he goes up there. Yet he has tried to hire black workers and they wont work. They say its to dangerous for that little bit of money. So therefore I believe that White construction workers deserve the money. Lets put it this way if the blacks want to live off the state and get a check so be it. But dont give them another check for it. Give it to the folks that are risking there lives to build America.
So true, but what I know of mexicans is that they really don't care. They are desensitized, they do not have the same ego needs. They hang out, and support each other, and live happy! What I really wanted to say, was that I - as a woman(minority) do not want to build bridges! I will not really feel safe going on a bridge built by a minority that used to live in a clay and straw village and/or another minority that really hates whites. I Do not trust a male gynacologist (medicine belongs to the female) Male restaurant cooks become really evil(can't stand the heat, get out)
Unfortunately I agree several years ago I made 7.50 an hour and my wife couldn't work, we had 3 kids to raise and she had no skills; needless to say we were living a tight existence. One day while at the store buying beans, hot dogs and such we stood behind a very well dressed black couple who threw porterhouse, and t-bone steaks (several) on the counter then paid for it in food stamps. We then observed them leaving the store parking lot in a brand new Cadillac. We did not qualify for foodstamps .....wtf? THE SYSTEM IS BEING PLAYED! I can never get this out of my head, we ate # food for years and drove junk and I worked my ass off for almost nothing but NEVER WAS I ABLE TO COLLECT FOOD STAMPS or any other program..even when unemployed because I had 500.00 dollars in the bank set aside for rent.

For someone who claims to have been a victim of bias or bigotry, you sure seem to be able to dish out the bias and bigotry. You should really be careful, making such bigoted remarks.
I was a victim of much much more than bias and bigotry!
I am well traveled and I am smart enough to know the government blindly encourages the constant incoming flow of Arabs, Haitians, Chinese ect into my country...well guess what - they really don't like us, and they are better treated than we are, of course.
We are becoming a minority here were I live. Being a delicate "white" female I am a target for any racism toward the white man.

That sounds like when I grew up. My dad worked for the local power company as a first class line man and we thought we were Rich because we always had plenty of food on the table. Little did I know it was because we raised all of our own food. But when your a kid you think your rich just because you eat good. When we did have money problems after my dad died, us kids found out we were even lower then middle class all the time. Which we never had known that before. But we were not elligible for food stamps because my moms home was valued at $45,000 that was to the DHS office income. Just because she didnt owe money on it. But we learned how to survive on $400 a month by once again raising all of our own food, and selling the extra.
My kids know they are not rich, But they also know they can easily end up in the poor house. Luckily there is some good news tonight. We just got word we have 2 houses to do starting next week. 2 roofs will help pay some bills. With plenty left over to put in my home safe for when its needed. But my kids unlike so many other kids out there have never had video games, and there own computers and computer games. My kids are lucky to have Bikes we get for them at yard sales. At least they have that. I had to ride the cow when I was a kid. Luckily we didnt have a bull.
