Anyway, I have never personally accused anyone of racism, except for people who actually sound racist. And even then, I usually let it go (for better or for worse). Maybe you're exaggerating the criticisms that you refer to as "racism accusations." Or maybe you come off as kinda racist for some reason.
Funny calling a white person racsist for voting for a Black man cause hes Black. MOST racsist whites WONT vote for any Black person.

Reading comprehension is a beautiful thing, and the lack of it is sure painful sometimes. Try again. I'll give you a hint: Two separate paragraphs, two separate thoughts. Also, it helps to understand context, like what comments I was replying to.

Yes. That's because there are some requirements for legal immigrants, at least those who come on work visas. They have to be employable, they have to have some kind of job skills, some ability to learn English usually, and because they have to support their families by working, most aren't having babies at age 15 or having 8 or 9 kids - if they do, they can afford them.

And to be fair, if you look at all those who come on work visas, people from Mexico are as good as those from India and the Phillipines usually.

With illegal immigration there are no standards. Anyone can come and for any reason. They can murder a cop in Mexico and over the border they come to avoid justice.
