There are Black Americans for and against illegals just as there are Whites, Hispanics, Native Americans, Asians etc. It has nothing to do with race-it is about illegal vs legal.

This gentleman did not even know Obama's stance on the illegal alien invasion before the interviewer told him nor did he know what comprehensive immigration reform entailed. Immigration-legal or illegal cannot be that high of a priority for him if he did not know these things. It seemed to me his main isssue was Iraq.

Perhaps if your purpose was to post a video of a Black American who is pro-illegal I am sure you could have found one who was more informed about the debate. There are plenty of Americans of all races on both sides of the aisle who would not have to be told what Obama's stance or what comprehensive immigration reform was. I think this gentleman's main concern was Iraq. He certainly did not seem as interested in immigration as he did in Iraq.

As well as millions more who do not post here. I agree with nicolem; this guy obviously is not as concerned with illegal immigration as he is with the war. Furthermore, when did the opinion of ONE individual equate to being representative of ALL blacks in this country? Nice try, blacknight.

What was your motive for posting this video?

Paranoid much? Point out where i said his view was representative of ALL blacks.

My point is, if this guy stated his view on this forum, he would have been branded as an anchor baby, illegal immigrant or a traitor.

Wish I could rep you. The truth of the matter is that many blacks are blindly voting for Obama purely based upon the premise of race. Unfortunately, far too many are totally uninformed and have not bothered to research his stances and how they will affect America. They are voting for him (a) because they want a black president; and (b) there has always been this methodical acceptance of democrats being the candidate who will best represent their needs.

For decades the majority of my people have voted democrat because someone told them that democrats always do what is best for "our race".

Further proof ignorance is not bliss . . . .
