Looked like an old, but interesting poll. ^^Above^^ is the count as of right now.



At this point, latino/hispanics are against illegal immigration/amnesty for illegal aliens.

How much does ethnicity matter when you are applying for a job, in a supervisory position, when flat out, a company states that minorities are promoted? How much does ethnicity matter when applying for college, and minorities get priority? How much does ethnicity matter when points are added to scores of people who are of color?

I'm against illegal aliens being here 100%. As such, I think if it was flipped and the Canadians were the ones mostly coming into the U.S. illegally than Latin Americans most Americans wouldn't care. The threads for this category in City Data, Illegal Immigration, would be less than 10% of whats here now.

-Cheers.

If there were over 30 million Canadians living here and working for dirt pay but living off Medicaid programs, having babies here because they were too uneducated and unskilled to support them back in Canada, there would be complaints. I believe more because liberals wouldn't have all that pity for Canadians and for some reason there is a lot of pity for just certain types.

Remember - not all Mexicans are coming here illegally. Not all Mexicans are dirt cheap servants, not all Mexicans start having babies at very early ages that they can never afford. It's more about a subset of that country that that country doesn't want to keep either.

Keep in mind that Mexico and other Central American nations also don't want the illegals, the last thing they want if for them to return.

I have very close relatives (and distant ones) who worked their butts off to get here legally and have been working their butts off without a government dime to earn their keep. And I HATE illegal aliens.

Btw, the latino thing...when I lived in a border town (where I really learned to hate illegal aliens and their scamtastic ways), it turned out the local legal hispanics hated them more than anyone. So I don't think this is a reasonable poll.

Big point here - ONLY CERTAIN people of color. Asians get all the fun of racism and none of the affirmative action goodies. Not that they should...no one should. AA is archaic and its time is done.

You couldn't be more wrong. It still wouldn't matter as they also would be taking jobs and resources they have no right to and violated our immigration laws. Put the race card back in your wallet.

So why do people complain about having to press 1 for english as if it were the worst human rights violation ever?

Can you imagine the whiners? "I had to hear 'aboot' and smell that poutine, those invaders, WHAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" Yeah. Right.
