For those who assume Minuteman are - as some put it, White Folks, here you go!

Well, I saw an outspoken black man at a minuteman rally on TV. He was chastizing the protesters during the illegal immigration rallies last year. It was funny because they couldn't use the R-word against him as they seemed to enjoy using against the white folks (ex: signs reading "go back to europe you white racists", etc.). The fact is that other minority groups have more at risk than most white folks, so it's silly that pro-illegal groups argue that this is some sort of racist agenda. It doesn't hold water.

"When you think of the Minutemen, what comes to mind? Perhaps a truck full of white guys with binoculars hanging out at the border, and not a Latina from the Midwest:"

Notice the capitalize 'Latina', but not 'white'.

What's clear as a bell is it's just not white people who are fed up with the illegals.

I've said it before, and I will say it again. To me, and people like me, and the Minuteman brothers and sisters, it is about the law, and not about race.

Without law, we will continue to have chaos across our country, as the illegals continue to break in and rip it apart.

Now on the other hand, in the case of MANY Latino leaders and Latinos, it IS a racist thing. Since I am not allowed to post the quotes from these Latino leaders and elected officials here, I ask you to look on the internet to other forums who have the freedom to let the people know what is going on right now in their country, and what the citizens are up against.

The Minutemen of all colors know what is going on in this country, and they are doing everything they can do to solve the problem without violence.

So, the one "Latina Minutement", justifies that the Minutemen shouldn't be labeled as "racist white men?!?!"
