Hell: as a White man-----------there are 'White' enclaves I would not visit either.

In all fairness; the prejudice against Black folks as a group is fading whereas it is indeed increasing against Spanish speakers.

While I agree race relations between black and white Americans have come a very long way, I wouldn't go so far as to say it's fading. Speaking from first hand experience, I find that it is more "strategically managed", particularly in the workplace.

Obviously, from the title of this thread and photo, this is what we can expect from aliens, subversive language and behavior, and open declarations of war.

The prejudice against any group of people. I can see it if it is not used against a group of people.

Legal immigrants can go where they please, of course. If this wave of legal immigration brings decent Mexican food to Alaska -- all the better!

If there are illegals also in the mix, then Palin might be advised to actively get rid of them now before they settle in and make 'ties to the community'. Once that is done, you may as well invite la raza to come stage a demonstration.

That's pretty silly. There's a big Army base in Fairbanks and we visited family there. My nieces' father is black and they did report any problems at all. You see people of all ethnicities all over town.

Well, why not? If they believe that they are descended from the very first Native Americans who first appeared on this continent some 14,500 years ago, then they could just keep on hoofin' it back to Siberia, land of their ancestors.
