I'm not following you. This thread is about Seizure of ILLEGAL ALIENS' vehicles, not about race. Maybe you posted this in the wrong place accidental?

I am not racist BUT I have to say this because its been bothering me. If you are a caucasian american citizen... you have no rights. other nationalities may be prejudice, racist, discriminitive towards you all they want and you cant do anything bout it because if you pull the same crap they do you get charged with it and not them. Every month is black history month I have yet to see a white history month. If I remember correctly until now every one of our presidents was white so why do we only get presidents day to celebrate them? As I said I am not being racist I fully beleive in everything Martin Luther King Jr. said however I think there are too many out there that abuse it and misunderstand. We are supposed to be an equal nation. if you are an american citizen no matter your color you are equal. You should not be treated any differently because of color. However we are still paying for the things that were done in our ancestors time.
I can certainly agree with the bolded sentence in your first paragraph. However, when presented as White vs. Black, or any other “citizen” groups, you lose credibility, because it has no relevance in this particular debate. The issue of illegal immigration is one of legality, national security, and sovereignty; not the race, ethnicity, or “nationality” of citizens of this country.

I can appreciate your frustration. I too, feel frustrated by illegal immigration, and the failure of our government to enforce our laws. However, if we begin to lose sight of the “real” issue, and allow disparate annoyances, real or perceived, to enter the fray, we not only lend credence to pro-illegal “racial” allegations, but also create division within the anti-illegal movement. We (anti-illegal Americans) are in this battle together. Let’s not make this a divisive issue of race. Otherwise, we lose, and illegal aliens and their supporters win by default.

What do you mean every day is "white history"? Just because our society is based on white European culture it does not equate to a celebration of white history. More and more our basic culture is being diluted anyway.

Show me an event, a celebration or any day of any week in any year that is dedicated to "Whites" and only Whites, or any special event with the title name begining with "White...................day", or for that matter with the name "White" in it......

And the irony is that Hispanic culture is just as 'White based' as Anglo Saxon--------but, many Latinos will try to deny that.

Seems to me the poster did what set to accomplish, taking the focus off of Illegal Immigration and shining a light on proposed racism, clearly the views of said above.

Take it to the hate all whites forum.
This topic is about Seizure of Illegal alien vehicles.
They get caught driving without a license, in most cases no insurance, bought and paid for with money earned illegally. In other words no work VISA, SSN or simply by using ID fraud. In short nothing about the car was done legally. It is a fair consequence for their actions.

St Patrick's Day (irish)

Columbus Day (italian)

I don't know of any days that start with "black" or "mexican" or "asian" in them, so why should we expect that one with "white" in it?
