As our racist president shows up everywhere talking about how we need a comprehensive immigration package (read: Amnesty for anyone who wants it), and several of our racist senators vote down a bill that had provisions in it which would dgo a long way to help stave off the invasion, I had to think about why I do what I do. I mean, it would be so much easier just to give up and never look back, several of our political representatives have. I get called a racist at least once a week, and I just laugh it off. But then I realized just how much I hated racism, and that I was done laughing.
Look, we all know that Mexico's government is corrupt. We know that the wealthy exploit the poor and do so openly and unapologetically. We know that several people come here each year because they are tired of being poor, and they feel that the best way to get out of poverty is to come to America. But the corruption has been there so long, that the people have taken it inside themselves without even knowing it. When they get here, they take some innocent's identity, work hard, pay almost nothing back to the system, because they have been taught for years to fear the system, and don't want to strengthen it if they can avoid it, and save as much money as they can while still sending some back home for the family left behind.
Fast-forward 20 years. This same invader now has amnesty from the government, and can now demand higher wages from his employer. They can buy a car, a house, and have several crumb-crunching, baby citizens! They have made it. They are no longer the 'poor' that they were back in Mexico. But their yard at home needs some trimming, and their dishes need to get done, and their home is a mess. They prudently decide to hire some domestic help, in the form of nannys, gardeners, cleaning ladies, and the like. But after putting several ads in the newspaper, they find that Americans want too much money to clean up after them. So, now that they are rich, they hire a fresh crop of illegal invaders to do the work for a dollar per day! Now, they are the corrupt wealthy.
They have just bought a whole new generation of slaves, and we all thought he was great for doing something for his life....
But wait, there's more!
Democrats, and some Republicans, decry that we have to do something, because these people do work that Americans won't! and if you stand up and say that something is wrong, you are a hate-mongering, racist! How dare you stand in the way of what the Senate wansts to spend half a day's work on! Reality check boys and girls: We are the country of TV shows like Fear Factor!
We are the country that puts the lie to your ignorance. We will do anything if the price is right! What we won't do, is go back to a time where people were less than people in the eyes of the law. We won't allow the reinstitution of generation upon generation of slavery that the right Senators Kennedy and Mc Cain seem to want! And shame on George Bush, Vicente Fox, Ted Kennedy, and all the other racists who say that the mexican people should be relegated to jobs that we are too good to do for ourselves!
These are the truce racists. These are the people who hate America, Mexico, and anyone else that doesn't agree with them.
The truth is, we need to seal the southern border, but only to clear 20 million potential victims of the race hatred of the mexicans currently working for slave wages, doing slave labor. We need to put business men in prison for hiring people that they know don't belong here. We need to force Mexico's government to take care of it's people. Once that is done, if anybody still wants to come, welcome, and bienvenidos.
So, the next time someone calls me a racist for trying to follow the law and protect people from having their actual rights stomped on, I know how I'll respond. Instead of laughing them off, I will show them how pathetic I think they are for holding such racist views!
