Thanks for reminding me of this obvious truth....
I didn't mean for that to be offensive, but you've repeated your disapproval of having this be discussed when there's so much more going on in the world, or something to that effect.
But I predict people are going to be "stuck" on this issue when it's what the thread is about.

No offense taken...we simply disagree on the relative importance of a few things, in comparison to a few others....(pretty much the case in ANY discussion, between any two people, about anything going on in society)...

Is it possible to comment on this WITHOUT being labeled a racist?
.
Your right of course. The discussion regarding the illegal immigration situation should not be automatically labled racist from wither side.

Yet its the left of center folks who will resort to the term rascist if you disagree with them.....................Yet its the right of center folk who will actually make such comments as wet back.

Now my wife who is 5th generation hispanic one used that term and it was I who chided her for cursing her self............she no longer uses the term wet back. but I had to cook for myself a few days.

No, the use of names and slogans merely drives sedges between the actual discussors and me thinks that both party's prefer wedges to solutions......................Sorry Mac, a half hearted attempt towards a serious question at 5 am...........forgive the inane aspect.....
