Flip side: most people with known Sub Saharan Black ancestry who have white skin tend to self identify as White these days------------especially factoring in they would be in danger if faced by militant Blacks who hate White folks.

I look more Mexican than most Mexicans and if someone is being continually pulled over they are doing something extremely bizarre and making themselves stand out.

I drive to work in the hood too and I have never been singled out as some of the Pro-Illegals keep claiming.

well, i agree with most sides on of the immigrant arguement(not going to say wich ones as to now start ANOTHER fight) many people think puting MORE militery personal on the boarder would help.it WOULD help.but due to many being some where else,and posibly the cost of deplyment and wages and suplliesto keep it going.(not sure if it's that substanial) .some sugest digging a canyon/wallwith REALL,REALLY,big tunnel of concrete.and even a few demend militeristic action against the illegals/mexico. meaning such as raids on known illegal or an military force against mexico.other think of a repeal of the anchor babies,work visa,etc. and even the idea of puting the illegals into a military division and sending them to forign places as to earn there citshipment (and to send good people home).another sugestion ive heard is a meddlement in mexico.such as helping the police forces and the (cartel?) corupted goverment to become "uncorupt" (what ever way that may that may be).well soutlitions a stuff-load. think on what i came (thank google/bing mainly) for thing i have found. also if you can post a one/s you like or hate,or maybe come up with one youre self.
