YouTube - A walk through downtown Westbury on a summer evening

Last time I did such a video, I recieved veiled threats that were no joke.
Someone's gotta speak up...

Wow, someone's got some pent up anger. I'm against illegal immigration, but, man, that's not healthy.

Wrong. Anger is a very normal reaction. The maker of this video understands that something is very wrong, and the people of his community entrusted with power will not do anything to stop it -- in fact they condone it. Anger is a very normal, healthy reaction to what he is observing.

I totally agree with you. There is something very wrong and way to many people ignore or excuse it.

I get e-mails from Homeland Secruity on things that are going on. I opened the one I got today, it was in spanish. They recieved an e-mail back from me, this is the U.S.A. and we read and speak english!!

I defend John's right to make as many videos as he likes and speak out...but when he points the camera at someone and proclaims them to be something He has no knowledge of being, then that bothers me. And when people accept his assumptions without question, that also bothers me.

the only thing I saw wrong in that small town was the bubble gum on the sidewalk...nothing a pressure washer cant fix.

I worked in Westbury for a couple of weeks and in the mornings there are streets you avoid because the immigrants walk right into the path of your vehicle looking for day work.
I don't blame him one bit. If you walk down the street of the town you grew up in and you cannot understand most of the signs because they are in another language it can be infuriating.

On a side note though. Being white in that part of LI means you are not in the majority.
