Why do people care what's 'ok' with black people?

You all think too much...

Exactly 30 yrs ago you would know, before that he didn't mention it.

Ibginnie,

I did not once personally attack anyone on this thread. If you don't like something, you have the right to your opinion as I do mine. This is also not an attack.

The term in question here is 100% correct. When one is alien to their location of citizenship, the term is fine. When something is illegal, it is simply illegal. No need to mince words on any of this.
Alien is not simply a sci fi term.

There are many that have worked very hard to become legal residents of our country, or legal immigrants, if you will.
Why are we so concerned about the feelings of those that are committing a crime to begin with and pay no taxes to support this country?

Why are illegals equating themselves with Blacks?

Illegals voluntarily broke the law.

Blacks were non voluntarily bought here and mistreated.

Big difference.

Accepting to sanitize a crime by using non offensive words to describe the criminal, does not in any way diminish the crime

You're right.
You're still missing a point.

Do you have one, or is it just verbal diarrhea?

No it doesn't but doing that make some feeeeel better not to mention the thought that if you put a warm fuzzy face on it that will change people's perception and win them over.
It's called manipulation.
Like changing the accurate term "garbage man" to "sanitation engineer".

Yes he did. Just because YOU didn't know doesn't mean that the rest of the world didn't know. Geraldo has always said that he's Jewish.

And what does it matter what his first name is? Damn...you're butthurt about that? He can call himself whatever he wants. Why does that bother you so much? Just worry about YOUR name.

He's chosen to identify himself and align himself with his Puerto Rican heritage. That's his right. You're butthurt about that too?
