A Black “Old Right Conservative” On The Black Elite’s Immigration Betrayal

Elizabeth Wright, Vdare.com, September 12, 2006

Black blogger Byron Crawford sort of, kind of gets it. Usually quite caustic in his anti-white bias, this time he realistically speculates on the degree to which so-called white privilege might be indelibly linked to the privileges of freedom enjoyed by all Americans, including blacks.

After first making it clear that he cares nothing about legions of immigrants who might eventually cause white people to lose their dominant position in American society, their “white privilege,” Crawford then reconsiders: “I wonder how much [of] what you might call American privilege is tied up in white privilege. If the U.S. becomes something along the lines of Mexico, we all stand to lose something.”

In other words, isn’t the way of life that we enjoy as Americans steeped in the culture of the Anglo-Euros and the “privileges” they first devised for themselves?

And don’t these privileges that are so much a part of our every day liberties, flow to all citizens of this country?

Crawford hints at the Big Question, but will not ask it outright, so I will.

What will be the consequence of other cultures dominating this formerly Anglo land? Will it matter to blacks if Asian groups, led by the Chinese and East Indians, displace the leading whites? (In the end, a century from now, regardless of the size of the Hispanic/Latino population, the Chinese and East Indians probably will have navigated their way to the national leadership positions.)

As the Anglo-Euro population diminishes, why would people from these alien cultures subscribe to the prescriptions of a Thomas Jefferson, or care about the legacy of Magna Carta?

When would the squabbling between the various ethnics begin over whose law is wisest and best fit to rule in the new, predominantly colored America?

From the behavior and actions of black leaders, one would think that a radical shift in the country’s demographic make-up would have no impact on the lives of blacks. In fact, they would have us believe that decades of mass immigration that is bringing about the “browning” of America is having no impact on any aspect of American life.

Black writer Ellis Cose, in Newsweek (Black Versus Brown, July 3-10, 2006), describes the two stages of rapid ethnic transformation of Lynwood, California. In the 1970s, blacks were the outsiders who migrated in large numbers into what was a small, largely white, bedroom community” of Los Angeles. By 1984, they were so populous that the town elected its first black city council member. Two years later, another black was elected to the council, and soon after the council appointed the first black mayor. Ellis writes, “Blacks quickly came to dominate the political power structure.”

In the meantime, Latinos were moving into Lynwood and their numbers began to grow larger. In the late 1980s, the first Latino was elected to the five-member city council and by 1997 they gained full control of the council. Today, Latinos are 82% of Lynwood’s population. [VDARE.COM note: The Lynwood City Council now finds it advisable to make its agendaavailable in Spanish]

Cose writes that after the first Latino mayor was appointed, Armando Rea“the city fired several blacks and dismissed some black contractors.” Rev. Alfreddie Johnson is quoted, “They got rid of 15 people at one time,” thirteen of whom were blacks. A Latina opponent of Rea claims that during the public promotion of Rea for mayor, Rea’s supporters knocked on doors, “saying we needed to get rid of black city council members.”

Cose wonders if the Lynwood example “foreshadows” America’s future. Will the future be one that “will increasingly see blacks and Latinos fighting?”

The answer, of course, is Yes, and not only in California, but all across the country. After all, why should Latinos–many of whom have proven themselves to be vigorously entrepreneurial, economically ambitious, ready-to-work-from-sunup-to-sundown, and socially savvy–yield to political domination by a group for whom much of what they possess is perceived to have been granted as gifts from coerced, blackmailed whites?

In California, Latinos are now the dominant racial group, even in former black venues like Compton and Watts, where interethnic fighting is common in the schools and in public housing projects. Conflicts are not limited to the adolescent crowd, however, as we saw in the late 1990s, when a battle between blacks and Latinos for dominance of the Martin Luther King, Jr.Medical Center in Los Angeles, broke into full throttle.

When the medical facility was opened by the county in 1972, South Central Los Angeles was predominantly black. In those early years through the 1980s, the King Center provided a plethora of jobs for blacks–from professional medical personnel and administrative positions, down to maintenance jobs.

By 1998, not only were most of the hospital’s clientele, i.e. patients and visitors, Latino, most conversations were conducted in Spanish. It was not long before the new residents of South Central began to push for the hiring of Spanish-speaking doctors, nurses and other staff. Washington Post reporter Michael Fletcher, writing about the discord in 1998, called the struggle a“pitched racial battle.” In L.A., a Sense of Future Conflicts, April 7, 1998] Not only did Latinos file lawsuits against the hospital for rank discrimination, but a doctor from India also sued for the same reason. The fight was on for county jobs.

After a federal agency stepped in and ordered increased recruitment of Latinos and other non-blacks, Fletcher writes that some black officials were “fuming.” He quotes the president of the Los Angeles County Black Employees Association saying, “We don’t think Latino progress should come out of our hides.”

In Compton, as of last year, in spite of the large population of Latinos, the city government was still exclusively black, and four out of five city jobs were held by blacks. In such places, racial tensions are sure to be exacerbated as Hispanics challenge the status quo in their drive to get their share of influential bureaucratic positions.

In August, this year, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa made it clear that he intends to assume greater authority over the city’s school district–a move opposed by black Assemblyman Mervyn Dymally.

Needless to say, many blacks resent the fact that the great influx of foreigners began around the time that laws were being enacted declaring special affirmative action goodies to be reserved to the descendants of America’s African slaves. In his book, Black Americans And Organized Labor: A New History, Paul Moreno describes the circumstances leading up to the 1965 Immigration Reform Act, which put an end to earlier restrictions on immigration. With the passage of this law, not only did 35 million immigrants enter the country, 26 million of them were eligible for these special preferences initially set aside for blacks.

In an unexpected consequence of legalized reverse discrimination, employers were able to meet the now-mandated racial quotas with immigrants from foreign lands. Further, about the impact of immigration in general, Moreno writes, “Though economists differ on the economic effects of immigration on native labor, it is fairly clear that it depressed low-wage native employment and income levels.”

Yet, even in the face of stark reality, black leadership organizations did not support restrictions on immigration. In fact, by the end of the 1990s, they opposed restrictions outright. The pattern among black elites–politicians, academics, community leaders–consistently has been to make alliances with other elites, in order to insure support for their ever-expanding demands on Establishment whites. These blacks continued to nurse the notion that any alliances with other “minorities” would give them greater power in the race intimidation game being played out against the white adversary.

The pandering of such blacks is limitless, since they are forever on the look-out for ways to expand their influence. In 1999, for instance, the NAACP announced a major campaign to recruit Hispanics into the organization. Billed as a “nationwide initiative,” Las Vegas Chapter President Gene Collins explained the mission as a >”fight for the disadvantaged regardless of ethnicity.” When asked to explain why the NAACP would turn its attention to another racial group, Collins pompously proclaimed, “We have to save the world in order to save ourselves.”

Why Hispanics should seek help from a black civil rights organization was not made clear. Well, it’s seven years later, and the campaign does not seem to have picked up any steam.

The editor of the black-owned Huntsville Chronicle in Alabama writes, “The idea of a black-Latino coalition has never been close to reality; language, culture, and geographical differences are stand-out reasons for non-coalitions. . . Jesse Jackson and others have embraced immigration, thinking that new immigrants could be used to build political power. It has not happened yet and there is nothing to indicate that there are any coalitions in the immediate future.” Or in the far distant future.

In the realm of pandering black elites, there is no more notorious public figure than Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, who represents the 18th District in Texas, and is the ranking member of the Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, Claims. Jackson Lee, who, for good reason, in 1998, was named the “biggest windbag in Congress” by the Washingtonian magazine, never tires of repeating that worn-out cliché about America being a “nation of immigrants.” Hence, we should relax and play our proper role as host to the teeming masses of the planet.

She characterizes herself as a courageous crusader who stands against “hatred and bashing” of immigrants, which she defines as almost any criticism of the current mass influx. According to Jackson Lee, those blacks who forcefully oppose mass immigration are simply naive and are being “baited” into taking such negative positions.

She regularly attends and speaks at Hispanic-Latino events and this y

ear, in August, at a meeting of the Labor Council for Latin American Advancement (LCLAA), an affiliate of the AFL-CIO, she boasted of having partnered with this group “on a number of occasions to combat legislation that poses a threat to the communities we serve.”

She lives for the platitude, and the more shamelessly sentimental, the better. At this meeting, she played the music her audience wanted to hear: “Those undocumented immigrants [as she calls illegals] harvest our crops, tend our gardens, care for our children and parents.” These same illegals should not be offered an “armed escort back to the place of economic and political hopelessness they fled.” She then waxed eloquent, as she revved up her preacher mode, telling her Hispanic flock to be of good cheer “for the Scriptures tell us that ‘weeping may last for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.'”

Can this woman pander, or what?

She can even pull a soliloquy out of her bag of tricks, as she intones: “Somewhere down South, more precisely down Southwest across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Laredo, Corpus Christi, or Brownsville . . . Or maybe just south of Tucson or San Diego or Douglas, Arizona – there is a family in Old Mexico anxiously about to embark on their own journey to the New World of America.”

Not if we can get those fences up fast enough.

According to Jackson Lee, everything good is owed to those who “risk death in the desert or “risk capture and crime.” Such people should not have to hide themselves from U.S. law, as they “work in sunlight but live in twilight, between the shadows . . .”

On the one hand, she tries to associate herself with those who take a tough stance on border patrol enforcement, while, on the other hand, she claims that “our border security needs more than just fences and deportations.” When informed that fences and deportation might be a good place to begin, she changes the subject.

Jackson Lee has consistently voted for amnesty bills, among them a bill she co-sponsored with Rep. Richard Gephardt in 2002, which would have created amnesty for about 6.5 million illegal aliens. This bill also would have ended the annual cap on family-based immigration and increased “chain” migration by about 250,000 a year.

This is the kind of representation that American blacks can expect from a Congressional Black Caucus, whose members live in fear of their districts’ changing demographics. In California, when mass migration from south of the border induced employers to cut hourly wages in half, native-born black and Hispanic Americans lost their jobs as janitors and porters. When some of them tried to tell their stories at a Washington D.C. meeting, they were scolded and derided for their “intolerance.”

At a hearing on immigration, in 1999, Sheila Jackson Lee could hardly wait to drop the “racist” tag on whoever challenged her rosy assessment of the manifold blessings that accrue to the U.S. from the “hard working” migrants, who come uninvited to our land. At that Judiciary Committee’s Oversight Hearing, former auto mechanic turned talk show host, Terry Anderson, a black man, described the impact of years of mass immigration in his region. A 45-year resident of South Central Los Angeles, Anderson has had a first row seat watching illegal aliens transform his neighborhood. He told the Committee about the jobs at McDonald’s that are no longer available if you don’t speak Spanish, of the bilingual classrooms where English-speaking children must listen to endless translations into Spanish, and of one-family homes that now house five families, whose costs have almost doubled.

He spoke of all those jobs that “Americans won’t do,” that were being done as recently as 15 years prior by Americans who worked as roofers, framers, drywallers, body and fender repairmen and truck drivers.

Prior to the mass deluge, native-born minority citizens dominated these occupations and were able to sustain their families on their salaries. Anderson was pleading for enforcement of laws against illegal immigration.

Jackson Lee was determined to put on the defensive both Anderson and the others who had come with him to testify at the hearing. Reminding them of the many “of us” who “came to this nation in an immigrant form,” she referred to slaves brought here against their will as “illegal immigrants.” And then, like so many pretentious black professionals of her class, she implied to these working class people that they should not even be employed in the kind of drudgery they spoke about.

You see, physical labor should be considered beneath blacks, “who have been here now for 400-plus years.” Blacks, according to her, “deserve a little bit more uplift.” Not that the good lady, sitting there in her designer suit, wished to “downgrade,” as she put it, such workers. She just wanted to stress how much blacks (just because they’re blacks, apparently) deserve more than low-end jobs. (See here for more on this kind of snobbery among blacks.)

To the likes of Jackson Lee, the advocates and supporters of those “undocumented” hewers of wood, like the members of the LCLAA, are just another constituency to be courted and won. So what if these foreign cooks, cleaners and cutters of gras

take away livelihoods from the American citizens now being displaced? You can almost hear her brain at work: “One population is the same as another, if I can only stay in power.”

For Jackson Lee, and the rest of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus, it’s all about establishing and maintaining a voting bloc. Yet, as they frantically work to win and keep the confidence of the burgeoning Hispanic populations in their respective districts, they might take note of those events in Lynwood, and consider the futility of their efforts.

These politicians have genuine reasons to be troubled, because once Spanish-speaking people dominate in their regions, it will be curtains for them as far as a voting base is concerned. Soon it will be of no avail that Reps. Maxine Waters and John Conyers have either co-sponsored or supported amnesty bills.

In 1995, the Roper Organization reported that 72 percent of black Americans thought immigration should be cut to less than a third of its present level. You would never know this from the activities of black elites, however. They view such reports on black predilections as a troublesome nuisance, the product of ignorant minds whose opinions the wise leaders must work to reverse. Today, polls show that the majority of blacks are against the amnesty and guest worker proposals, now in Congressional limbo–policies supported by the wiser elites.

Ted Hayes, a black Californian, who has organized the Crispus Attucks Brigade, and has affiliated this group with the border-watching Minutemen, claims that black politicians who support immigrant “rights” are “leading blacks in a circle.” Hayes believes that this issue will be their “undoing.”

It might also be their undoing for reasons not yet explicitly formulated. For, if this tidal wave of industrious Chinese, Koreans, Indians, Arabs and Vietnamese does not abate, and members of these groups acquire national power and influence, there will be little patience demonstrated for those groups known for not carrying their share of the economic load.

Who will there be to patiently indulge the heavily consumer-oriented, non-producing blacks, for example? Already feeling the impact of immigrant groups that are imbued with a fervent work ethic, through lowered wages and ethnic employment networks that shut them out from jobs, blacks will discover there is worse to come.

When the white population falls below the 50% mark, the days of whites running interference for blacks will be over. And so will those special laws biased towards safeguarding perquisites for the “Disadvantaged,” which can be mighty expensive to enforce.

Again, what are the odds that those 18th century injunctions devised by those funny little men in britches and waistcoats will prevail, once the polyglot new Americans from Asia and Central and South America begin to flex their political muscle?

So many blacks and their white liberal gurus failed to appreciate those Anglo-originated laws based on “self-evident truths” and the consent of the governed, which were flexible enough to take under their protection the nation’s former slaves. Who will there be to insure that jobs and scholarships and government contracts, and the surfeit of other entitlements, will be available for a people who have grown used to looking to others for slices from the economic pie, instead of baking their own share of it?

Once what’s left of constitutional law is gone, partly out of neglect, because the story of the Constitution and its creators will no longer be taught in the various Chinese-Indian-Latino-Arab colored school systems, a new corner will be turned. If blacks think they’ve been mistreated at the hands of whites, just wait until the affirmative action, set aside party is over–when there is no one to insist that they get undeserved perks, or have a “right” to intrude themselves into places where they are not wanted.

The new dominant ethnics come to this land with their own sob stories of oppression. Unlike whites, they are hardly likely to fall over one another to apologize for past wrongs. Nor are they likely to spend their time in Congress concocting new laws designed to discriminate against their own sons and daughters in favor of blacks.

“Reparations,” did you say? Just wait until the first move is made to un-name and re-name some of those Martin Luther King, Jr. boulevards.

So, the blogger Byron Crawford is onto something. Let me paraphrase his speculations cited at the top of this article–“If the U.S. becomes something along the lines of Mexico or Guatemala or China or Senegal or Pakistan, we all stand to lose something.”
And once that something is lost, there will be no white folks to harangue, from whom to demand restitution for yet another assortment of imaginary grievances.

    Yes, the Rainbow Coalition is dead, and we will shortly be swimming in a sea of all against all which is probably more advantageous to the diverse white Americans than otherwise. We’ll see what happens and it is possible, if white Americans learn to use their white voice in a white context, that we and our children will come out of this quite well. Be of strong heart.

    “wait until the affirmative action, set aside party is over—when there is no one to insist that they get undeserved perks, or have a “right” to intrude themselves into places where they are not wanted”.

    This is scare talk. Affirmative-action blacks control most of the hiring positions where Hispanics are likely to apply. This, and their lack of shame, morals or perspective, would be enough to cement them into their positions ahead of Hispanics. In case it’s not, they’re also the ones who still receive official affirmative action.

    The blacks will lose out one the whites are no longer the majority. They will be reduced again to the pre-Civil Rights era. It will be especially sad for the honest and hard working blacks for some do exist. What the whites did for the blacks in terms of perpetual handouts, affirmative action, special considerations worked against the black majority. It made them regressive into a dependency state. It is against the laws of the Universe for some to live off the labor of others. In other words, this twilight zone of living on handouts and special considerations were eventually going to have to end. Peoples other than whites will not have the same consideration and patience to tolerate the likes of such as Maxine Waters, Conyers, Jackson Lee, Rangel, Jessie Jackson, etc. The end of white majority is a given due to the current demographics of the immigrates. The old America is dying. Will the blacks have the ability to adjust and compete on their own two feet because their usual racial shakedowns will not work on the new population of America?

    Blacks need Whites, but Whites don’t need Blacks–I’ve been saying this for years. And Ms. Wright somehow figured this out, but it’s fallen on deaf ears in the Black community. Whites have an ethic of fair play that no other race has–and when we aren’t around anymore to enforce those rules, Blacks are going to beg for us to return.

    That said, I have to wonder if Ms. Wright truly believes that Blacks, as a whole, are capable of “baking their own slice of the pie.” Aside from the few exceptions, what are Blacks able to do without help from Whites? I have to think that Ms. Wright often posed this question to herself, but I doubt she could honestly say, “Not enough to make any difference.”

    Firstly, white Americans are not diminishing, as the article states. Hispanics are reportedly now outbreeding us, but that might reverse. Whites, along with Asians, are very successful races. All the others have historically suffered numerical loses through contacts with stronger, smarter ethnicities. Blacks still make up less than 13% of the American population, and Australoids make up about 2% of their continent’s people. The native populations of the Western Hemisphere suffered a tremendous impact from white immigration.

    I believe that the survival of the fittest will continue to apply to life on earth. Less successful races will die off or be subsumed in more successful races. Sub-Saharan Africa appears to be on the tipping point of disaster. Disease, drugs, famines, and wars will eventually take a huge toll. In the U.S., the ghettoes are rife with drugs, murder, and abortion. The barrios are headed in the same direction. The blacks and Hispanics are already at each other’s throats.

    Among whites and people of northern Asian heritage, longevity is increasing, and crime is minimal. Our communities are thriving. The vast majority of these groups doesn’t want to adopt the lifestyles of the less intelligent races or mate with them. We will remain in control until an even stronger race evolves–if one ever does.

    The black organizations are as bad as the labor unions. From the 1820’s with the labor dominated know nothing party to 1925 when immigration restrictions were finally passed, the unions, populists and workers worked hard against immigration.

    But being part of the Democratic party the unions are as much of the anti White pro immigrant crew as affirmative action judges.

    I know many AmReners are as much against hispanics and asians as they are against blacks. It is true that our government has long planned to replace us with them. But if you have lived a long time in a city where hispanics have largely replaced blacks it is wonderful.

    From 1960 to about 1995 some of the most expensive White neighborhoods in Los Angeles such as West Los Angeles and Beverly Hills had high rates of black on White crime. In fact, most crime in the area was black on White.

    Beverly Hills is perilously close to a black neighborhood. Blacks were robbing stores, raping and robbing. When Debbie Reynolds was in her fifties she lived too close to the boundary between Beverly Hills and the black neighborhood. She, a tiny little middle aged woman got out of her car one day, was seized by 3 black thugs and marched into the house at gunpoint.She was robbed and the thugs threatened to shoot her but not her black maid who was a sister.

    This happened a lot in Beverly Hills right up to 2000. Store clerks were often shot and killed during robberies. The rest of West Los Angeles has 2 freeways running through it. The blacks would just drive up from their lairs in S Central, Inglewood and Compton, get off the freeway and rob or carjack any White on the street.

    Any house or apartment within about 6 blocks of a freeway off ramp was in a danger zone.

    I was robbed, throat slashed 6 inches and right hand cut up in the parking lot of the Cheviot Hills shopping center. Cheviot Hills is a very pricey White neighborhood but the shopping center is perilously close to a freeway off ramp. The police told me I was the 4th White woman whose throat had been slashed by blacks in a week.

    All that changed between 1997 and 2005. The hispanics took over all those black neighborhoods and West Los Angeles is safer than it has been since 1950. Hispanic neighborhoods are a perimeter defense for West Los Angeles. Crime has plummeted.

    Beverly Hills has been saved by a combination of hispanics and very orthodox Jews who have taken over the formerly black neighborhoods east of Robinson blvd. It is now very safe because the blacks have been ethnically cleansed from the neighborhood that preyed on Beverly Hills.

    The city and county stopped hiring affirmative action blacks after the Rodney King riots. They were replaced by competent hispanics and asians. I detest the fact that it is illegal for me, a White to get a government job, but I love the fact that the totally incompetent people have been replaced by competent hispanics and asians.

    Hispanics will rule California, but that is much better than being ruled by blacks and their backers, SPLC ACLU etc.

    “In an unexpected consequence of legalized reverse discrimination, employers were able to meet the now-mandated racial quotas with immigrants from foreign lands.”

    A friend who inherited a prosperous business from his Father told me that his Father rejoiced when open immigration was passed at the same time as affirmative action for blacks.

    It meant that he could hire asians who could do the work rather than useless blacks. That company had about 3,000 employees in his Father’s time and non were blacks, despite it being near Boston which has a large black population.

    If I were a conspiracy theorist, I would believe that when Prs. Kennedy started urging affirmative action the businessmen told him and President Johnson;

    “we could use our millions of campaign donations and media to oppose it. But if you take the incompetent trouble making blacks for government and let us take the productive non trouble making asians and hispanics we’ll support affirmation action all the way.”

    I worked as a building inspector during the building boom. I dealt with several different ethnic groups. As a Caucasian, I was complained about by every ethnicity as they tried to play the race card, but more interesting to me was the complaints by all ethnic groups that I heard from everyone.

    Whites complained about Latinos who work hard and underbid them–as many are illegal there are less taxes to pay, but rarely, if ever, complained about black contractors. White contractors never deemed black contractors a threat. If blacks understood the low esteem they are held in by Asians and Latinos, they might rethink their allegiances with other “minorities”.

    And, Ted Hayes is a great guy.

    Here is a black governor defending an drunk illegal immigrant who killed a White man.

    Governor Deval Patrick said yesterday that he shared the community’s outrage over the death of a 23-year-old Milford man struck last week by an alleged drunk driver who was also an illegal immigrant. But the governor urged people not to blame the death on illegal immigration.

    Matthew Denice was on his motorcycle last Saturday when he was hit in Milford and dragged for a quarter-mile. Nicolas Guaman, a 34-year-old immigrant from Ecuador, has pleaded not guilty to charges that include vehicular homicide while under the influence. “It’s a terrible, terrible tragedy,’’ Patrick said at the end of a news conference about

    Sorry, I do not follow your nice vision for us Whites in Ca. I live in a city with a lot of Hispanics and they are not as great as you say they are. No racial group is “better” to rule California than the WHITE race, period.

    As for what happened to you by a black, I am truly sorry, but believe me I have read horrific stories of what these “Hispanics” do and it isn’t pretty. PLEASE do not trust any NON white race.

    > I’ve lived in that part of LA as well, I was there during the change. The neighborhood became increasingly safe as you said. Hispanic driving is still often extremely reckless and homicidal. Many of the drivers are unlicensed and have no insurance. I was in several car accidents there and many close calls, road rage, etc. My house was robbed once, but not at gunpoint. They waited until I left. Walking around east of Robertson for errands,etc, it was mostly Mexican. If you walked past people on the street, encounter them in the store, etc, it was pretty uneventful, most often polite. I never felt unsafe around the general Mexican public in that area. A black neighborhood would be much more dangerous. You cannot go to a black area in LA, period. Even blacks have problems there.

    ……………………..

    I am wondering about this Congresswoman Jackson-Lee. I am guessing she is of Jamaican/West Indian parentage. Just a hunch. She even LOOKS West Indian. Even the hy-hyphenated name is typically West Indian.

    Looking her up, I see that she went to school in Jamaica, Queens (New York City), a heavily West Indian area. She then got higher degrees from Yale and Univ.Virginia. Sounds like a typical Affirmative Action product! What else?

    She has earned a reputation as a scatterbrain and idiot, and the nickname “Biggest Windbag in Congress” from the WashingtonIan magazine.

    What’s my point? It’s that her love and sponsorship of immigrants, just like Eric Holder’s and Gen. Colin Powell’s could be explained by her own immigrant W.I. parentage. She does not see the world as an American black does. If I’m right and she’s an immigrant herself, then she holds nothing in common with American blacks except color. She now serves Houston, Tex., where she has no logical connections whatsoever. She’s a professional politian who will pander to whatever group will keep her in office.

    How in the world did someone like this get into Congress? If the writers of the Constitution could have foreseen, they would have gone back to work and re-written it.

    In 2007, New America Media conducted a telephone poll of 1,105 African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic adults. The poll supported Putnam’s findings. The sample was designed to be representative of the adult population of the three major racial and ethnic minorities in the United States. The poll was conducted in areas of the country that have significant (10 percent or more) African-American, Asian-American and Hispanic populations. The three groups seem more trusting of whites than of each other. The poll found that 61 percent of Hispanics, 54 percent of Asians and 47 percent of African-Americans would rather do business with whites than with members of the other two groups.

    In addition, 44 percent of Hispanics and 47 percent of Asians are “generally afraid of African-Americans because they are responsible for most of the crime.” Meanwhile, 46 percent of Hispanics and 52 percent of African-Americans believe “most Asian business owners do not treat them with respect.” And half of African Americans feel threatened by Latin American immigrants because “they are taking jobs, housing and political power away from the Black community.” The margin of error for the Asian-American sample (400 interviews), the Hispanic sample (355 interviews) and the African-American sample (350 interviews) is approximately 5 percentage points.

    Living in Mexico del norte (south TX), I can tell you about blacks and hispanics, they are not even close in any respect. Fact: most hispanics know their mothers and fathers, most hispanics are Christian enfluenced, most Hispanics work hard. You do the comparisons. Most Hispanics view blacks as lazy, whining bums waiting for crime or handouts.

    Facts can be cold, not warming for a coalition.

    That is one of the clearest and concise articles spelling out how the “strength in numbers strategy” will back-fire on the blacks. They are being sold out by their leaders the same whites have been since Brown vs. Board of Education.
