There's a bit of faulty logic here.
Blacks were forced to be here? Yes.
Whites were also forced to be here. You do not choose where you are born, if a white person in born in the US, they are being forced into being here
just as much as someone who is kidnapped and brought here by force.
We could leave once we grow up, but so can the blacks. They were even given aid in returning to Africa, and the ones that went back became just like
their previous slave owners. Americanized blacks that returned to Africa and settled in Liberia were a TINY TINY percentage of the population, were
NOT native to the area (not all Africans are the same, if you didn't know) and they enslaved and took advantage of the local population in the same
way whites did in America. Oh wait, I thought only whitey was a boogeyman.
I would gladly return to Germany if A. They would take me and B. the US government aided in my return to the fatherland. I have a feeling that Germany
will be around much longer than the USA will, anyway.
The law that calls undocumented immigrants illegal is just that, a LAW. Laws of a COUNTRY, not laws of nature or god. The definition of illegal
immigrants can NOT be applied to white (or any other race) settlers in America. Why? Because America was not a country, not a nation, it did not have
laws. It was an open land inhabited by tribal peoples. They didn't walk up to white settlers and say "according to section C of our tribe's
immigration laws (which contradict other tribes laws) you are illegally immigrating to this land.
Who had claim to the US as a whole? Does one native tribe get to decide the laws for the whole continent? So what laws were violated?
Native American's didn't spring to life in America. They came here like everyone else. What gives them the right to claim all this land for
themselves? Nothing. Just like nothing gives us a right to this land, other than our ability to defend it from others who want to take it.
Every single person on this planet benefits from wars, theft, and murder of the past. Every single person lives on land that was stolen thrice over.
Every single person can trace their lineage to a victimized group.
All you are doing is adding further division. Immigration is not about racism, it's about LAW. You are born here, and you contribute, or if you come
here, you follow the laws of the land.
Do you think we walk into Mexico and demand rights, freedoms, and a green card from the Mexican Government? They would laugh if your face. Mexican's
aren't natives either, they either migrated to the area long ago or are descended from those peoples mixed with various europeans.
The bottom line is, and I hate to quote from a movie (Kingdom of Heaven) but when he says "All have claim, None have claim" about jeruselem it's
very fitting on a larger scale. There is no universal law (unless you are religious) that dictates WHO is right. WE decide who is right and who is
wrong. You don't own any land, nobody does, not native americans, not africans, not europeans. We occupy the land and defend it to the best of our
ability. THAT Is survival, that is civilization, that is the world.
Playing the historical blame game makes you look like a little kid saying "HE TOUCHED ME!!!" "WELL HE TOUCHED ME FIRST!" "NUH-UH I didn't touch
you I was only close to you" "YOU SO DID!" "NUH UH" "PROVE IT"
The only right you have to a land is a right to attempt to keep it for yourself. You may not succeed, but the next guy plays by the same rules, he
doesn't own it, he occupies it, and someone will likely steal it from him too.
