Unite Rochester: Time for Latinos to join the discussion

Jun 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

I started getting involved in Rochester community issues 45 years ago. Throughout all these years, I have developed the perception that, in general, the Rochester area establishment deals with social issues by creating impressive blue-ribbon committees to conduct studies.

Unite Rochester, does not want a discussion on racism. Paralell to these United States, a true discussion on racism would mean certain truths would have to be told, and the fact that America was built on, and presently operates on a fundation of injustice, raw brutal power and endless cruelty, against the black race, would be too much for them to bare. Yet; in order for true healing to take place, the truth must be told.

how can latinos join a discussion when they cant even "speaka da english"??????

theres a SEVERE issue in our area with people not having any clue how to speak english.

i want to know where the hell all these people are coming from, AND WHY are they all coming here in such vast numbers?......and theres FAR more than what the "officials" are telling us.

many times we hear that they come here for a better life, to live the American way, but in reality they come here and do business as usual, they act like they are back where they came from, they refuse to learn english or embrace the American way. They simply turn their surroundings into what its like in the places they came here from. It is also common to see members of this group act hostile towards blacks, asians, and whites simply because they are not latin and do not speak spanish

frankly, id prefer the latinos that are here either make an effort to assimilate or go back to wherever the hell they came from

and while we are on the subject, each year, the riot squads comes out for the PR fest, each year the pr fest continues business as usual.......any other non latin event has 1/10th of the issues the pr fest has, and they get shut down or "altered" for safety

how many riots are we going to deal with before the pr fest is shut down or "altered for safety"

Truth is subjective!

You wanna prove your point that WHITES are the source of your problems. Whites are brutal and violent against the blacks ... I get it.

But when you see so much BLACK on BLACK violence, it kind of steals your thunder! Blacks are viewed from the outside as a people who are not capable of respecting THEMSELVES, and if they can't respect each other, how can you exspect them to respect the others?!?

Learn to be civil in your own environment ... stop robbing & killing EACH OTHER over the smallest of things. And I am sure that you will find things will get better.

P.S. don't carry a grudge over the past, focus on the future. if not for you, for your kids.

WHENEVER the Black man has a valid focus to help the people OVERCOME, the White man finds a way to circumvent that cause he feels Threatened!!!!

A threatened white man is a EVIL and DANGEROUS person. He has no problem assassinating/ murdering and or bringing in destructive substances (GUNS, DRUGS) to assist with HIS agenda.

It has been this way in the past and in the PRESENT.....

You gotta let your hatred go, stop living in a time before you were born. Start living in the present and future.
I don't think MLK would approve of your anger and hatred.

You are a racist. See; racism lives. Latinos assimilate; why can't you let them be who they are?. Why do white people, have such a need for other cultures to assimilate into theirs; is your self esteem so low you can't allow other cultures to be who they are? Even though there are diverse groups in this country, there is no acceptance of those groups, so there is no diversity. White America will never change.

yes white people are "scared" of latinos who cant speak english but still choose to sit on the white peoples porches and when white people ask them why they are on their porches, they say "no english" and give you a dirty look as if youre the one on their porch!

yes white people are afraid of these people that loiter and trespass on their property day and night, these people that police do nothing about because 99 percent of the time the cops dont show when you call em, these people for all anyone knows are selling drugs on the property they are loitering and trespassing on.

yes white people are afraid of others who trespass onto their property, speak no english and instead of at least acting in a friendly manner, give dirty looks and aggressive demeanors. these people trespass and loiter 24/7 basically doing surveillance on your property, they are there when you leave your home, they are there when you return and for all you know the minute you leave they are attempting to break in.

keep saying its only racism when people try to speak out and use words to solve existing problems, one day, a severe backlash will take place against those holding the race cards.

every time someone speaks truth and tries to address issues, they are labeled racist....so many people choose not to speak at all

that will continue until all people choose to stop speaking, then actions will happen on a large scale and if you think things are racist now, wait till then

i was called a racist, but not one person answered my question

why are they coming here?
why in such large numbers?
where are they coming from?
how did they get here?
how did they afford to come here?

and most importantly why come here, to live the same exact way they did there?

why do we have to as a society spend money to make options in other languages when we are in a sequestration to the point where even white house tours were suspended among countless other things?

why are these people coming here if they dont want to be AMERICANS

people can continue to call it racist all you want but back in the day when immigrants came here, they ASSIMILATED...they were still "the people they were", but they Americanized themselves and were PROUD OF IT!....today, these immigrants make 0 effort to be an AMERICAN and when an American complains, they are labeled racist!

on both sides of my home i am surrounded by latins, one side has assimilated, they are great and incredible people, the types of immigrants our nation has cherished,they still speak spanish, but they know english, they act like Americans, they live the American life, they have the ability and desire to interact with non latin neighbors......on the other side....are immigrants that give the good immigrants a bad name, its like the property is in a 3rd world country but i guess im just racist for calling a spade a spade

lastly anyone want to talk about how the PR fest gets preferential treatment that the other events in rochester DO NOT GET...anyone want to talk about all the leniency that the PR fest gets compared to the others?

probably not, probably everything i said will just be dismissed as racism and business as usual will continue with this city turning into a sewer

I've become so numb, I can't feel you there
Become so tired, so much more aware
I'm becoming this, all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Please tell us why you think that white people are scared. I sure know that I'm not scared of you or your kind. Are you saying that because you are the one scared of white people? If you aren't maybe you should be with your racist ideas and the crap you spew. Just asking.
