How is illegal a race or racist?

I laughed at that one. That was a regular sight for me growing up. We bought the flowers a couple times. Nothing wrong with them selling the flowers, and I see it as nothing to be ashamed of.

A better question would be why would any Latino/Hispanic citizens be offended by negative remarks about illegal immigrants? Should I be offended over negative remarks being made about white bank robbers? Hmm.

They have no right to conduct any business in our country. Why aren't you getting that? It's not about shame but our immigration laws.

People used to talk about Irish drunkards and how many of us like to fight over stupid stuff; us "Irish" ain't that touchy otherwise we'd be all over Notre Dame over their "Fighting Irish" logo in 2013. Now THAT'S a stereotype. LOL

Back to what the the OP quoted: not all illegal aliens are "Hispanic". Sheesh

Do you not get that this is supposed to be humorous? Are all of the people who sell roses illegal?

I don't recall reading about back then that the Irish were demanding that their illegal brethern not be deported in exchange for their votes, do you?

If you wanna get technical, any one who is not a Native American, is an illegal but back in the day, the illegal white men had bigger guns and were higher in numbers so nobody could deport 'em.
