"The Latino population has exploded in Columbus," said Guadalupe Velasquez, coordinator of Mayor "Michael B. Coleman's New Americans Initiative."

Really? You don't say!

And I'm willing to bet my last dollar that 98% of this growth can be attributed to illegals, all of which drain the tax system with their undocumented status, free health care at hospitals, no car iinsurance, etc.

Yeah, things are really great around here.

"poor little white people" Where did ya'll even get that term, "racial" anyway?
Something about the way ya'll use it seems improper. "Why does everything have to be so "racial"? But then ya'll only just recently started asking THAt question because you are just NOW starting to experience the affects of the culture and climate that YOU created, fostered, and condoned...when it benefitted you!

"Velasquez said she likes to point out that there are now five Latino restaurants - two Venezuelan and one Peruvian, one Cuban and one Mexican - within a few blocks of one another Downtown. "We didn't have anything like this five years ago, not even three years ago," she said."
**********

And how many of the employees they hire are LEGALLY here and how many are NOT?

Americans don't care about minority this, minority that - we care about who is ALLOWED to be here and who is NOT ALLOWED to be here.

Everything else is irrelevent.

I didn't "create, foster or condone" ANY type of "culture and climate" in the U.S.- play your blame game somewhere else.

AMERICAN is my "culture" and this country IS MY "climate".

If you prefer the "culture and climate" of another country, feel free to leave.

I am a white American. I live in the US legally. I work. I support myself. I read this article, seems like some are proud we hgave so may minorities. I am too. But I am not proud of people here who are illegal. Yet they are. No one does anything about it.The illegals have no fear of our law. If they break it, they will and do run to where they come from(Mexico).Why is there no law to send these people back home? If I break a law, I will use this as my defense. How can I be charged for doing something illegal when the law doesn't charge people for being here illegally?

I love the new diversity of Columbus! It has provided new restaurants, new businesses, brought new life to dying neighborhoods. Columbus is prosperous and people are moving here. None of my grand parents were born in the US (Poland, England, Canada, and Austria) and my mother is not american, but i am American true and true - and I will bet the next generation of these new immigrants in Columbus will be just as American as me. Why all the hate??? I guess it was OK for our grandparents to come here, but now people want to deny new comers. Yes, they should be legal, but don't assume everyone is illegal, they probably are not!

The point of the article is not about white people. Why are you making it racial or playing the race card. These are the facts. Get over it!! Who wrote and published this article?

BECAUSE of the 20 million illegal aliens, the MAJORITY of which ARE latino, I certainly WILL "assume" that they are either illegal aliens, or AIDING other illegal aliens.

I don't owe them the benefit of the doubt in this issue.

Either way, it's NOT positive "diversity" for our country because LAWLESS people invite and breed OTHER lawless people.

Look at the failed state California and you will see the future of the U.S.

That is NOT the kind of country I want my kids and grandkids inheriting.

I have been shopping on a number of occasions at various stores and am sometimes the only person speaking english, or not wearing one of those halloween costumes with the hood year round at many stores. It is fine to move over to the U.S.A. but please stop talking like you are still in the middle of china somewhere, or the heat of the dessert.

<quoted text>New flash!!! Whites commit more murders, rapes, etc. Please what news are you watching....Also, blacks made up x% of offenders in prison. What it tells me is that more are convicted than whites. Doesn't mean you commit less crime! ""Blacks were over 7 times more likely than whites to commit homicide in 2005". Really 2005! I know what I see on HLN, ABC, etc. I don't care what % you are quoting from, but the facts are that whites have killed, raped, committed more white collar crime, than any other race since the beginning of time. Hence 200 dead people is greater than 150 dead people. How far back are you willing to go to see just how many people white folks have killed?
In this case the raw number is not as important as the percentage or probability that an event(murder) will happen in a demographic sub-group i.e. blacks.
I don't need to go "far back" to find large scale black murders in most all the countries of central Africa...Sudan, Uganda, Rwanda, Congo, Somalia..along with some countries on the west coast of Africa. Quit defending the indefensible.

That's good:'cause your kids and grandkids won't inherit this country. Blacks, Asians, and Latinos will inherit it. "This land is your land, this land is my land ... This land was made for you and me!"

Our grandparents came here to make a new life for themselves. They worked very hard. The saved and sacraficed. The left other countries because of outrageous taxes. These "new generations" are coming here and expecting us to provide their new life for them. Increasing our taxes immensely.

you mean the culture of success and freedom that will never be found in Africa ? And you can bet the Asians do not sit around waiting for affirmative action and minority set asides, why is that ?
Please affirmative action. What Black person do you know sitting around waiting for affirmative action? I have never seen it in play. I have a Masters degree and more experience than my white peers. Some white people want to assume that if a person in a particular position is not white, it must be affirmative action. It couldn't possibly be because they are educated and qualified for the job. My entire family is educated, my black friends are all educated, so please with the affirmative action. See for you it is called "white priviledge" There should be no poor, uneducated white people on this planet. Also, I noticed that when talking about minorities, you seem to only want to focus on black people. Why is this? Does it makes you feel better about yourself.... Please continue putting your focus on black people that way you will not have time to focus on Hispanics, Asians, people from India, etc. New Flash!! When it comes to skin color the world is getting darker. Please continue trying to beat everyone that doesn't look like you with your superiority complex! See life is too short and the black race, the hispanic race, the Indian race will still be here when everyone on this board ceases to exist!
