Black Activists Join to March with Minutemen

CBS2 (Los Angeles), April 23, 2006

Several black activists plan to join members of the Minutemen Project to protest illegal immigration, which organizer Ted Hayes touted as the “biggest threat to blacks in America since slavery.”

The protest, organized by Hayes’ Crispus Attucks Brigade and the American Black Citizens Opposed to Illegal Immigration Invasion, is scheduled to start at 1 p.m.

Hayes, a homeless activist, alleged that most homeless people in Los Angeles are black and illegal immigration compounds the problem since blacks refuse to accept the “slave wages” that many illegal immigrants accept.

“While all Americans are suffering from this invasion, we blacks are suffering the most,” Hayes said. “We feel like the leaders promoting this issue are being insensitive. This country wasn’t built on the backs of immigrants like (Villaraigosa) says. It was built on the back of West African slaves.”
