However, I did not mean that in a racist way.


It was racist and you are showing your ignorance plainly.

I can't wait for the first hispanic cop to detain a white guy...then we will see you SCREAMING how unjust that is.

exactly. My point being is that profiling happens. All you people flip out when someone doesnt use "political correctness" when they state this wasnt racism as the title of this post implies.

Coming to a Northern State near YOU!

From Washington, Montana, to.... New Hampshire, Maine....

You a white male? Great, prove you aren't from Canada - show me your birth certificate. Don't have it? Then you are going to jail.

It's not racism, it's the law. If you can't prove you are an American Citizen at any point, then you will be detained. Don't like it? Tough. They're doing it in Arizona, and we are doing it here in Wisconsin.

Now get into the back of my squad car.....are you resisting arrest? TAZER!!!!!

*scurries off to locate original birth certificate*

*scurries back - can't find it, has no idea where it is*

Ruh-roh....

Needing a birth certificate is wrong IMO. But having a SS# should be enough. Racism is way too strong a word. Demographic is much more appropriate I believe. So if you are mexican, present a green card, or SS card. If not, meet the INS. Got no problem with it. And what kind of Canadian sneaks into America?

SSC is enough?

I can go down to the local swap meet and get one of those.

BUT...

If you have a drivers liscense and a social security card together, that is more than enough proof of I.D. ESPECIALLY IF he has his SSN on his DL that matches.
If not it shouldnt matter anyways as long as he had both. At least enough to prove to a cop.

Ok...profiling happens huh?

Well I'm going to profile anyone who wants to deport illgeal immigrants as racists bigots.

And any white male that opposes Obama...racist. Hey...I'm not playing the race card....I'm "profiling".

Oh...and anyone who thinks Chuck Norris is cool...I'm "profiling" them as having latent homosexual tendencies. Nothing personal...just "profiling", hey, it happens.



Give me a break..."profiling" is just a new word for "stereotyping". It is an ignorant and out-dated concept that people of low intelligence rely on to justify their bigotry.

SS# would have to be enough. Not everyone is going to have a drivers license. The only other option is the :shudder: national ID card. I would be happy enough personally with green card/ss card. There are always flaws in the system and you can fake a SS card just as easily as a birth certificate.

The more simple plan is to come down on people hiring illegals than searching for illegals but for some reason we are too stupid to take the easy route.

Well I think this country DOES need to crack down on Illegal Immigration,
But to do so with respect to the people of this nation and also to those who are not. Profiling is not the way to crack down on illegal immigration, there are other ways.

So is demographic, whats your point? If it isn't a valid tool then it wouldn't be so successful. I profile people constantly by their cars to see if I can guess what area in the city they live in. 90% of the time I hit the nail on the head. Its highly affective because we move around like sheeple. I look at a black guy with FUBU on and he is a thug in my mind. White guy with a tank top on, well thats white trash. Asian guy, smart and can't drive. 10 Mexicans in one minivan, well they are illegal. It is too simple to not be affective. We (and by we I mean you) should consider getting thicker skin.

I'll tell you what kind: The crazy kind! Which is precisely why you need to make sure you catch them all and send them back to Canada!

(No Canadians were harmed in the writing of this joke)

Sadly, it's true..we all do it..but to get arrested and thrown in jail is something different. You forgot the overweight white woman with sweat pants on..Food stamp recipient.

What does this say about us as a society?

Hello, welcome to the human species, earth.
Do you have paperwork proving you were born?

Sad, and true..what is left for us now? We are nothing more than puppies in a puppy mill.

Which is exactly why we should be busting down the doors of businesses that hire these illegals. Crap like in the OP wouldn't be happening so much.

And you are right I forgot the overweight white women. It may be sad but I can't help how fun it is. White people are by far the easiest to place in a group. (this comes from a white guy btw)

Been trying to figure that out since the Bush administration. I really think it is the small yard businesses and construction is hiring the majority of these people. Maybe they actually think nothing will get done if we boot them out or something.
