ok here goes, hope i don't get a bunch of 'hate' replies. on the subject of everything making you a racist, i agree and it annoys me, when
president obama was just a candidate, i stated that i didn't want to vote for him, thus i was called a racist, which i am not. when i made it clear
that i wasn't goin to vote for either candidate because i didn't agree with either, that was not noticed, only that i wouldn't vote for the black
guy (who by the way is barely an african american anyway).
we have the naacp and other things catering to specific ethnic groups, but if i started a 'poor white trash college fund' i'd be slaughtered as a
if i fly a confederate flag, i am a racist, but if someone supports a group such as the black panthers, it's ok. it's a double standard, we need to
look past the color and see that we're all people of the same species.
now on to immigration. i have no problem with it. however, i think they should become citizens, just like my ancestors who came over from ireland 200
years ago under similar circumstances and were treated like slaves for a long period in history.
to sum this one up, by all means move here and enjoy your rights, but become a citizen, pay taxes, learn the language like everyone else, you can
still keep your culture, it doesn't have to be lost.
