They've also displaced tens of thousands (if not millions) of whites in a myriad of careers from meatpacking to construction. Why aren't whites taking to the streets?

So what's the difference, assuming that there is one?

Uh; we DON'T want to see white people hitting the streets, that'd be real ugly with lots of hurt people. Most of us "white" people have been taught it was NOT Ok to riot since we've been taught to do things through the government. What scares the pee out of me is seeing the government fall apart and lots of survivalist types with their ARs and so on filling the shoes of the cops.

I'm not black or African-American, so I can't speak to the issue/comments from the perspective of persons who are. But I can observe, see, think and read the information being published and I have the clear sense that the NAACP is being true to its history/past and I think there's a lot of truth in this quote from the article linked in the OP:

Quote:
Black civil rights leaders have played an increasingly prominent role in advocating for the passage of immigration reform, a trend that's evident at today's rally. ...There's a reason for that: the immigrant rights struggle has parallels to the past and ongoing civil rights struggles in black communities.
For those who don't see the parallel, just ask me ... to loan you my reading glasses.

I don't see ANYTHING that's the same. Most Black people in the US; their families were brought here in chains but ALL illegal aliens came here as free people and they can go back home. But the NAACP of 2013 ain't the NAACP of 1913.
