I laugh when White American people call racism. The victim hat isn't a good fit.
It isn't a good fit for you illegal lovers either.

If I were the Sheriff Joe, I think I would start to watch my back just a little bit closer and keep that six shooter just a little bit snugger.
From the watching of the video and the commentary, I would consider that a personal threat of mob violence directed to wards his actual person.

Alien = Foreigner.

Illegal is just that- illegal



An illegal alien is a foreigner that is here illegally-it is as simple as that. Sorry if the truth is too negative for you.
Do you know legal immigrants are also called refered to as aliens?

You can cry and moan about it but illegal immigrant, undocumented immigrants are all accepted terms.

Do you see me paying all that much attention to the legislation, the political part of the debate?

Come on now.
Hehe, the only ones getting desperate are the anti-immigrant crowd.

You state the only difference is taking the "proper steps" as if that difference is not a big deal. It is a very big deal and exactly the reason illegal aliens should never be called immigrants. Just another play out of the OBL playbook. If I were a legal immigrant, I would be pretty damn po'ed if I were getting lumped in with illegal aliens who broke the rules to get here. I am an American citizen and I think that it is disgusting lumping people who follow the rules-aka legal immigrants with lawbreakers who think they have a "right" to come here any way that they please.
When was the last time you checked the dictionary for the definition of immigrant? Oh that's right...i forgot the anti-immigrant crowd has a special dictionary they look in for definition of words.

Interesting,your fondness for gringo. I don't personally know any Americans that have fun being called a gringo. I have always seen the word as an offensive slang used for an American or English person, many cases a white American. If you say alien is offensive to a group then I can respect that but don't turn around and say that another word can not or should not be offensive to another group.

With due respect AMC, as I have stated in other post I grew up with American/Mexican people (who I dearly love to this day)
and they NEVER considered the term gringo to be affacinate and fun loving.
Maybe Oklahoma Spanish is just translated different than Arizona Spanish.
Any way my point is , any white boy that gets called gringo better stiffen his back or just be considered a *****

It is also interesting that the spanish/english translator blocks giving a literal meaning so the just reconfirms this is a derogatory slang

In Mexico especially it is mostly considered a negative slang directed to WHITE Americans................

I was always told and did commonly consider it to be a Mexican version of white n----r

Thats just whjat I have been told for the last 50 years and by Mexican americas so........................

Consider the source..........a classic mark of desperation on the part of a pro illegal fan---------trying to tar legal immigrants with the same brush.
