Crazy! It is amazing and crazy that racism is alive and well in Tennessee. The people I talk to are against illegal immigration not against hispanics. If the US government would do what almost 80% of the people want they would stop illegal immigration and help the legal ones!
Seems that your post is somewhat an oxymoron considering your username.

There you go. Not that it will matter.
This will be a never ending argument. No matter where you stand on the issue hateful and ignorant tirades do not get your point across. They make you look just that, hateful and ignorant. And that goes for all sides.
Bet you had to "Google" the above, didn't you? In common, "everyday" knowledge of a typical American, they answer would "none."

Actually, I didn't.
The information came from doing research to help my son with a report some time back.
From going to the library and picking up a (gasp) book.
That is not the point though.
I understand that this is a topic that a lot of people are passionate about. And I am in no way for illegal immigration. But that goes for anyone.
It is unfair that some will spout out racist garbage about an entire group of people whether or not they know their citizen status.
Would you come across so hateful and bigoted if this country had a problem with illegal Canadians?
If some could argue their points in a more constructive and intelligent manner maybe you could get more people to see your point of view.
Otherwise you just come off as some backwoods hick running late for a Klan meeting.
Don't people have a warped enough view of southerners without some perpetuating those stereotypes?

Glad to know there are still some American's that help their kids with their homework.

BTW, there were more Klan members in Indiana and NEw York than the Carolina's in prime "klan" time (1920's-30's). Also, all stereotypes are based on TRUTH based on events. Perhaps take some time this holiday season and watch "Birth of a Nation" and learn some real "non-pc" American history.

And the fact of the matter is that I despise all illegal aliens, but especially the worthless scum from "south" of our borders and Ireland. It is estimated there are over 70,000 illegal irish living in/around New England -- and these are not the good hard-working irish either, but the scum of ireland, thrown out of their own country.

Arrest and deport them all!

I only use the Klan as an example to prove a point.
I understand what stereotypes are.
Don't you want to evolve and move past them?

No, because every month I have to deal with my tenants (all races) and every month, in one way or another they reinforce the various stereotypes. At this part in my life, I have accepted that most folks are either evil or lazy, and there is very little goodness left in the world. The election of the ObamaFurher just reinforces that.

There is nothing "united" about the United States anymore.

I agree with your last statement.
Why would not then want to be better than the people you describe and NOT reinforce a stereotype?
I have seen many of your posts on various threads and they come off as quite "evil".
It is not about being PC, or liberal it is about being a decent person.

"If you have hate in your heart, let it out" - Clayton Bigsby

Being a landlord has only put hate in my heart and contempt for humanity. I just want my money and no hassles, but every month I have to fight for what is mine. And every quarter I get a phone call from the IRS telling me how much they want and guess what, they are NOT forgiving.

I have Topix to be a good place to vent my anger toward my tenants and sub-contractors.

I understand your position.
But don't you think that anger would be better focused in a topic that better suits your situation?
Why take it out on entire groups of people such as gays or Hispanics?
What kind of background checks do you do on potential tenants?
Hate gets you nowhere and is exhausting for your heart and mind.

(i am white) I think hispanics legal or not have the same right to be here as we do. This is the land of the free. Not the land of the racist. granted there are some that make trouble, but give them time and they will come around.
If people would give them a chance hispanics can change how we think. i know i have changed just by being with friends from school and from church.

"This is the land of the free."
Yep.But it is NOT the land for free!
There are no signs at the border that say,
"YOU DON'T NEED NO STINKING BADGES!"

Would you be willing to support all the CITIZENS that have lost their livelihood to illegals?
No,of course not.
As long as they do not cost you directly,you do not care what damage their presence causes.

GIVE THEM TIME?How STUPID can you be?
Time for what,to turn away from gang banging?
Next time you are at church,ask those illegals to put the cash that they do not pay in taxes,into the dish.
They will laugh at you.

You go ahead and choose foreign criminals over loyal Americans.
When the time comes,you will pay for your treason.
And here is a clue miss hug the world.
America cannot support the world.
It is not racism,it is nationalism.
