I'm always fascinated by the line, "we don't want to become minorities in our own country". Why not? Are they treated badly or something?

I can't wait. We can then strip every (current)minority of every immoral monetary benefit they have. But that won't happen because men are currently a minority, and not 1 of the 151 laws specific for women have been repealed yet.

Usually I try to be calm and respond with verifiable facts like the striking differences in wealth, education and health connected to race and sex in this country but I read this crap and an emotional response is sometimes completely appropriate. I read about 'immoral monetary benefit(s)' and it's obvious who the true 'snowflakes' are; peckerheads whose place in the US hierarchy is being challenged and are losing their shit like you.

I still remember an episode of Oprah on racism that must have been on more than 20 years ago. One old white woman said she was worried about minorities having rights because then wouldn't they be angry at white people and treat them just as badly as white people had treated them. (You know when you hear something so dumb that it sticks with you for the rest of your life? That stuck.)

Yep. Every once in awhile I think back on some of the asinine things I've said that I can't take back or forget.

The truth is that the far right bolster "imagration" on a platform that is NOT what America has been in history, all about.
For example. the Statue of liberty quite boldly states, “Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” .

It was quite litterally the imagrants of those that worked what is called the industrial revolution, Factories, railrodes and many more.
we wouldn't be the nation that we are without them. yet we frown on the newcomers seeking the same thing.

I believe that many in the political figure, need to take a few history lessons.

Remember a year ago when Stephen Miller told the press corpse that the poem didn't represent the immigration philosophy of the US? I think he said the poem wasn't originally part of the statue, or something stupid like that. lol

The poem was not an original part of the statue, but was written FOR it, by Emma Lazarus in 1883 to raise money for the construction of the base. It was cast onto a bronze plaque and mounted inside the pedestal's lower level when it was constructed in (I think) 1903

Aptly put.

Whites will be, and soon. Even if you stop every single immigrant at the border.
