But you are too narrowminded to acknowledge any Latino issue besides immigration. And that issue you makes you bitter enough(for some reason) to be against any kind of Black-Brown Unity.

Its people like you that prevent the groups from having any kind of cooperation. But I guess if you don't live in the communities where both groups are heavily represented, its easy to not care and not see the similarities and instead focuse on immigration.
Why do you insist on making no distinction between illegal aliens and legal Hispanics? Please find one post where I have denigrated the Hispanic community. My gripe is with illegal aliens and their enablers. La Raza is not what you would like to believe, and I will not change my opinion of them.

I don't have to go too far.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; if we had millions of Nigerians invading our country, there would be no end to the outrage from groups such as La Raza. It would be considered intolerable and unacceptable, and there certainly would not be much compassion from the “Hispanic” community, including Mexicans. The concept of Black/Brown unity would be nonexistent.[/
Why do you assume that? And the "'Hispanic' community" isn't the same as MeCha, illegal aliens, or even the National Council of La Raza(La Raza refers to Chicanos in general).

That's not denigration, that's a fact.

Let’s just cut the crap. There is no black/brown unity, and the millions of illegal Hispanics who are displacing low-skilled blacks in the workplace, virtually ensures the continuation of tension between these groups. When two groups are fighting over the same crumbs, common sense dictates conflict will ensue.

How's it fact if it hasn't happened? you have no way of telling our feelings. You are just convinced we are the most selfish group out there.

If people want to work, they will work. That's why there isn't very many LEGAL Hispanics not working.

Are you suggesting the unemployed low-skilled blacks are simply lazy? None have been displaced by dirt cheap illegal labor?

Really??? Of course, no distinction is made between legal and illegal.

7 percent isnt that high. And those are statistics including immigrants that have been affected by the economic slowdown(less constuction.)

And I'm suggesting that illegal immigration hasn't stopped many legal Latinos from finding work. You figure out the rest, however you see it.
I don't know about you, but I don't like landscaping or flipping burgers for minimum wage.

If you think a 7% unemployment rate is low, math obviously isn’t your strong suit. There are an estimated 45 million Hispanics in the U.S., 7% of that = 3,150,000. I consider over 3 million people substantial.

FYI, there are many people lacking marketable skills who have no choice but to work minimum wage jobs. They should not have to compete with illegal alien slave wages; and your flippant attitude and condescension are not amusing.

With self-righteous indignation, you castigate and accuse me of being anti-Mexican. Then, you have the unmitigated gall to blatantly insult my race. I’m through with this discussion.
