Also, 99 percent of this forum is devoted to issues regarding Mexicans. So thats what I'm going to discuss. How you get that I think they are entitled to more than any other group in this world, I have no idea.
You care as much about "black" poverty in this country, as you do the enforcement of our laws......which is NOTHING. Including blacks in your comment adds zilch. Give it a rest.

Yeah, my fault. I guess my boiling point is being called a "twit". It always has been my weakness.

We need to start a "Minuteman Code", lol.

Remember what I said about how you should brush off punks that mess with you? Think of personal attacks as the same kind of thing. They're not worth your time. Besides, it NEVER helps you to respond with personal attacks / name-calling / violence / etc. because it just serves to worsen your reputation and that is not something that you want on an internet forum where you are clearly outnumbered by people who strongly disagree with you.

They do have effective psychotropics for your condition. Well, it's waaay past my bedtime. Remember, I'm on the East Coast. It's been real. Nighty night.

And I'm sure the Minutemen who marched through Leimert Park really care about the Black community.

Aren't many of the Minutemen black? I don't know much about the Minutemen but have heard that many of their members are Mexican-American and that there are several active black members too.

There are ALL ethnicities represented in the Minuteman organization. Many are also retired law enforcement and military personnel. They put America AND HER LAWS above any kind of 'ethnic separatism'.
