You can't take back what you fought over and lost, signed a treaty, and were also paid money for.

I have encountered blacks who are shockingly oblivious to the issue of illegal immigration. They had no knowledge of its detriment to this country, or blacks in particular. Of course it doesn’t help having the likes of Al and Jesse advocating for illegal aliens. Sadly, their apologists are loyal to a fault, and automatically assume if they’re involved, it must be a just cause.

A few weeks ago, I had a discussion with a black male friend. He was appalled when I told him I support SB 1070, and asked how I could support racism and racial profiling. We had a lengthy discussion which culminated with his support for SB 1070. Many simply need to be enlightened.

No i'm not a reconquista, what's happening now is the same thing that happened when europeans came to the new world, They took over the country when People already lived here and now the same thing is happening but the only difference is Mexicans aren't killing off white people in large numbers like the europeans did to the Natives.

And many of these mexican and central americans are mainly of Native descent, but the U.S. calls them hispanic.

One of my best friends (black) of 35 years, who recently died, traveled with me to many places. In Mexico he would get catcalls and people calling him Michael Jackson, asking if he wanted to buy drugs, etc. When going to a restaurant or bar, many times the server would ask me (white) what he wanted to order instead of asking him..

If that ever happens they will regret it because that is when these Mestizos will no longer have any use for them and they will see what the new racism looks like and they will be the brunt of it.

I don't think most blacks are aligning themselves with illegal aliens. Benicar and SoEdible are good examples of that. It is mostly the black race baiter leaders like Jackson and Al Sharpton that are doing it. Most blacks resent the comparison of illegal aliens to the civil rights movement and rightly so.
While I am sure there are some who share that sentiment, I do not believe it is representative of the feelings of most black Americans. As I mentioned in my response to LuckyGem, it’s more an issue of ignorance of the facts, as opposed to disdain for whites, or a sense of retribution for past injustices.

I have always felt that Hispanic advocacy groups are only using blacks to garner support for illegal aliens and amnesty. If they ever accomplish their goals, they will throw their black supporters under the bus in record speed.

They probably don’t realize that Janet Murguia and her minions at La Raza are actually quite anti-black. I wonder what they would think if they knew she petitioned Congress for a moratorium on immigrants from Africa. If they think Jim Crow was bad, they certainly don’t want ethnocentric Hispanics like Janet to ever control this country. Blacks wouldn’t be sitting at the back of the bus. They wouldn’t even be allowed ON the bus.
