I don't see you complaining when people post articles you agree with.

Exactly. Nobody has any complaints when the articles come from News With Views(says it all in the title, doesn't it?), World Net Daily, other neo-con websites, and the idiotic rants of Frosty Wooldridge.

At least this comes from a neutral media site.

I can't wait to see the comments on here. MLK's daughter must be a pro-illegal un-American person.

Frankly, I am tired of political and activist dynasties. Her opinion is interesting, but it is no more valid then mine because her father was famous and a much beloved (and powerful) civil rights leader.
Now, had MLK himself said this, it would hold weight. His daughter...mmmm, not so much.

Not for nothing, but the extremist "anti-illegal" camp frequently brings up any kind of Black voice they can find, to legitimize their "struggle" as Americans, and keep them from looking like a bunch of angry white people.

African Americans are the hidden power we've been looking for.
They could turn out to be the backbone of this fight!
Why the African-Americans support? Why not just "more Americans support"? Typical attitude carried by many in that camp. Finding a Mexican/Latino who agrees with them is a good thing to do. But not as powerful as having a Black who agrees with them.

But what if she made remarks against illegal immigrants getting citizenship?
I'm sure you and others would be singing a much different tune, and I don't doubt the people on here who spend their mornings googling "immigration" "hispanics" "mexico" "molestation" "drug cartels" "american murdered by illegal" "hispanic statistics" would catch it and post it on here and talk about how "Blacks are with us on this fight!" as if they are some monolithic group that isn't comprised of individuals who have different opinions like everyone else.

But since she goes against your guys' opinions....mmmm, not so much. And of course the obligatory replies attempting to discredit her for not agreeing with you guys.
