The author of this article is a complete idiot. Racism is an easy excuse for him.

What's so controversial about that? I've been saying that for years. Because it's true.

Yes he is. It isn't racist to not want to lose one's country's national identity, demographics, culture and language via illegal immigration. The bottom line however is about our laws no matter how these race baiters try to claim otherwise.

It is not racist it is arrogant.
Who are you and the rest of the elitist wasps to judge what America's "national identity, demographics, culture and language" should be.

Amen. It's ALWAYS been about this. Anytime their is an increase in the non-white population it makes headlines.

I am not judging what it is. It is what it is already. You can't change the facts. Don't like it move. I have no problem with the melting pot continuing through legal immigration but certainly not via massive illegal immigration. Why are you ok with that?

If an immigrant immigrates to this country in good faith he should assimilate him or herself to us. Its out of respect of the country.

Look, I ain't MAD at white folks for feeling the way they do. Who was ever on top that didn't want to remain there? It's only natural to want the status quo when the status quo is beneficial.

Every other race would feel the same way...threatened. Whites have traditionally been able to ignore blacks, Asians, and other minorities, but now they're up against a group they CAN'T ignore.

To be real with you, I understand the fear at first glance, but if you look at it deeper, the fears are dumb. Senseless. Hispanics after a few generations will morph into regular old white people through intermarriage, upward mobility, social mobility, education, etc...unlike blacks (with some exceptions), they greatly admire white people even if they don't come right out and say it. Whiteness is prized in Latin America...it's something to aspire to.

So really, the fears are kinda silly, but whatever. I'm not in it...I'll just remain a neutral bystander in that argument.
