In a weird sense it does make sense to me. A civilization or country should have the right to try and advance its own self-interest (which they are doing) and not confining itself to logic and equality with other countries. And since I'm an American I want to advance our interests. What doesn't make sense to me are Americans who believe these illegals are right and I don't think it will be too long before one of those loonies shows up.

It seem like the video( mainly the people holding the boards) was targeting racist whites to go back to Europe, not the Black minutemen.

If the 'racist' Whites have to go back to Europe-----------so do the 'racist' Hispanics as well. Unless the Spaniards do not want the New World Mestizos; Spain is very White supremacist itself----------several 'brown' Latinos who visited it were not happy at all.

How is somebody racist for confronting racist individuals to go back to their continent? The board that the people was holding up didn't say all whites go back to Europe, it was refering to the racist ones.

If someone told me to to 'go back to Europe'------------I would laugh. I am an American-------------of recent Euro lineage. BTW: I am not racist.

Too: the Euros perceive Americans of any race/ethnicity as simply that, Americans.

The problem is that they were not protesting against racism, they were protesting against being punished for breaking the law.

The only reason they say white racist is because it is the only defense they have, they just mean any white person who does not want them in this country, but not because they are Hispanic, but because they broke the law.[and most of them are ruining our country]

So they would probably call me racist too, even though I am of Hispanic descent

Double standard. Take a look at Mexico's immigration laws and compare them to how lax our laws are. If they're so proud of Mexico then perhaps they'd like us to change our laws to match that of Mexico. We'd also plant our national military on our southern border to stop all illegal immigration the way Mexico does. We'd require all immigrants learn English where in Mexico Spanish is required.
