Man trying to feed his family is just not the same thing


These folks aren't thrives. They are trying to survive. And if your not offended by labeling these people as illegals - so be it.

But I am. And I believe it is every bit as unglued as the N word. Both are intended to demean and objectify people.

Did the N word stop being used after the Civil War was over? No - it was continued to be used to take black men and women and treat them as inferior. So to with the "illegal" label.

One other thing - I do agree that the oppression of blacks is worse and different that the current hatred for immigrants. But that does not mean that Hispanic immigrants are not entitled to be treated with dignity.
