If there IS a difference, then you should be able to differentiate the quotes, shouldn't you?

Is it OK in your book to accuse someone of racism if they're actually racist?

And........... you could do the exact same thing off of any website like the San Diego Union Tribune or even the San Francisco newspaper's web that posted ANY article about illegal immigration.

To quote the position of the pro-illegals. How do you know they are racist?

This is the mindset of a large segment of the illegal alien populace, and it will be instilled in their children for generations. It’s amazing that so many are unable to see the handwriting on the wall. Welcome to the “new” America.
So, this is what you consider a racist comment? Also, it’s interesting that you failed to indicate the thread, so my comments could be read in their proper context. But, I suppose painting me as a racist was your sole objective. Yet, I never mentioned race, ethnicity, or national origin, only illegal aliens. Pathetic!

You realize the OP doesn't say it was "racist" right? That was something all of you guys inferred.

For the articles themselves, or the accompanying comments?...

If hispanics come up when discussing illegal immigration it is for one fact and one fact only: because 80% are ALL illegals are Latino. I am Democrat. I am NOT voting for Senator Menendez for reelection because of this fact. If he wants to play identity politics -- and constantly speak for Latinos rather than the needs of all the residents of this state -- then let him face the consequences that non-Latinos will not vote for him.

You can't have it both ways as many seem to want to do on this issue. You can't advocate for your ethnic group and then ask others outside of your ethnic group to support you.

That's exactly what's going on with many supporters of illegal immigration. They are advocating policies that help their communities in the name of identity politics. When those policies directly hurt other members of the community who do not share their ethnicity all they have to say is scream racism.

That's not a convincing argument.
Hmm, good points.
