I wonder if thats how the whites felt in the 50s.

Demographics change in neighborhoods. It always happens.


BTW, it wasnt the Mexicans who brought the "drugs, gang life, lack of jobs".
South Central and Compton were already pretty bad when only 1/4 of the people were Latino.
Lots of Blacks are leaving said areas for Antelope Valley and San Bernardino, as Mexicans are still moving in. Thats why demographics are changing. Mexicans arent kicking them out.

And the Antelope Valley went from one of the best kept secrets of the L.A. area to one of the worst areas...Just look at the Los Angeles Board right here on City Data. Palmdale was once the 5th safest city in LA County...not anymore.

No, I don't think idenity thieves and forgers are good but they are not all made up that way, just like Americans are not not all bad.

Well Sassy, how do you think these people are able to become employed? Rent/buy houses? Put their children not born in the US into the public school system? Somewhere along the way most if not all will become identity thieves. I seriously hope it is not my identity that gets stolen next, how about you?

She doesn't have to worry since blank slates don't have identities.

I will be sure to ask the next one I run into, how they get all of these services for free when our poor doesn't have any....oh I almost forgot, we do have Americans bleeding the country for all the services I pay for also,
and I'm sure your can picture one of the welfare moms, dragging her kids and another on the way. Those make me madder than the "illegals",
they have learned how to run the system and all they have to worry about is the next welfare and when it will arrive.

Like i have said all along we must start at the bottom and clean house so as to have a good foundation, then we can make the needed changes inthe higher offices.
