Get a job in the fields, try it. "Oh, I see what he means now!"

And, finally, if ya'll figure I am racist about whites, I do suggest increasing your all education level past middle school, stick some critical reasoning skills in there too.


what???????? i wish you knew just who you were speaking to, i remember my mom and my granny telling me stories about the dust bowl and the move to california, the sharecropping they did, the dirt floor two room cabin that they lived in seven to the family..i remember my granny telling me about their hardships, and i have lived a few myself...and the insult about us being uneducated........i will simply consider the source.

I am still working on this one, and just where did I state anyone was uneducated? This desire to find fault with the poster rather than with the problem is a problem.

And your family worked hard in the fields, and so did many other white folk from OK and AR, and does your family or their family still work in the fields? No, as they found something better to do,, leaving the field wide open (so to speak) for Mexican labor, which is precisely my point. Whites won't work in the fields, if there are enough legal citizens to work in the fields,,?,, well then, who is going to do it?
