Bigotry is never a pleasant topic here, but you've managed to bring it up

with this churlish, whining editorial pointing out that "white people had it difficult too, but look how well the white folks overcame their disadvantages." This is the new meme of bigots - "The Irish came as slaves, and overcame all that -- why can't dark-skinned people do like whites? Must be due to mental defects and laziness etc. etc. etc. "

America has ALWAYS been multi-cultural and immigrant groups have ALWAYS worked to assimilate, the churches have always worked to help immigrants assimilate, including all the churches who sponsored immigrants from Vietnam, starting with the boat people in 1975. I have NEVER met anyone who is opposed to immigrant groups assimilating, including the public schools who work very hard in teaching English language skills and job skills to new groups of immigrants. Multi-culturalism has always happened, it is the way of America, and that is how immigrants assimilate.
Don't even start with me by posting this racist nonsense. This sounds like some op-ed written by fans of Dr. Ben Carson who believes that African slaves were "voluntary immigrants".
I have ZERO patience with you and your gaslighting and race-baiting. -- B4E
