The New Ni66a
Well, it happened. May 1st - (better known as Illegal Immigrant Demand Day) came and went with what appeared to be several hundred thousand people protesting in the streets of America in support of illegal immigration. Confusing? Yeah, I know it is, but be strong.
What really baffles me though is how people who aren’t even supposed to be here in the first place can have the audacity to start demanding shit from the people who are supposed to be here. Word on the street has it that some people at the protests were even spotted wearing shirts that said: “I’m Illegal, So What?” So what? You said it yourself - you’re illegal! Presumably, the issue is not that cut and dry, but before I delve deeper into the situation, let me point out a few positive things that came out of the May 1st day of protest.
1. There was a lot less traffic on the way to the office!
2. Black people finally got to work on time.
3. At the mall for lunch, I sampled just how few Black people had jobs. I counted seven (7).
4. Black students finally got some attention from their teachers – in English.
5. A Black person cooked my food at the soul food place I went to for dinner.
“We as black people have faced unjust laws just like the Mexican community,” said Jeremiah Muhammad, 33, a member of the Nation of Islam. “They can’t divide the families. I can definitely sympathize with that because we as black people lived through the same things. I feel an obligation to stand with them.”
'Muhammad and others fear that if undocumented workers are to be classified as felons, as called for in a U.S. House proposal, families will be broken up as illegal mothers and father are jailed and possibly sent back to their country of origin while their children U.S. citizens by birth, stay stateside.'
What in Sam’s hill is he talking about? I think Jeremiah is worried about the wrong shit if you ask me. The black family unit is a red hot mess and he’s worried about the plight of the illegal alien family structure. I wonder if he will come to my protest when I hold a candlelight vigil to call for the end of Black people smoking crack, loitering in front of liquor stores and being lazy and shiftless. C’mon Jeremiah, join me.
Is it just me or is it stupid for people to get mad at the U.S. for having laws against illegal immigration when the countries that these people are coming from also have laws against it? You can’t just walk your ass into El Salvador and think you’re going to just start working in the pupusa factory. Hell, if an “immigrant” wants to work in San Salvador, he better have his AIDS test. You’ve got to prove you have been tested for HIV before you can get the okay to start selling sandals or putting up drywall over there. Oh, but not here in the USA. Here, you are free to sneak in with hoof and mouth disease and then immediately start cooking food at the San Diego Olive Garden. Help me; I’m confused!
Now back to this apparent link between illegal immigration and the civil rights movement. Just stop it right there! The issue of illegal immigration has NOTHING to do with the civil rights movement. What civil rights are illegal immigrants being denied? They can sit at any lunch counter they like. They aren’t being forced to the back of any bus. They aren’t being forced to work for low or no wages. There are no crosses being burned in their front yards. They aren’t being held captive. They aren’t being lynched. As a matter of fact, they have the freedom to march in the streets and demand that they get even more freedoms. So I say kiss my black ass and the asses of all my ancestors if you think otherwise. Do you think all this damn marching would even be taking place were it not for the Black people? Why don’t you ask someone who was beaten by the police or sprayed with the force of an industrial strength water hose in 1963 if they think the two issues are comparable. Sorry buddies, this is a whole new ballgame.
Here's a really odd question. Why didn't they try marching at home first? Wouldn't that have made more sense? Coming to the U.S. to march is like me saying: "Damn it all to hell! You can have America. I don't need to fight for my rights as a citizen. I'm leaving and going to Dubai and demand citizenship there." That ain't gonna happen by the way.
“But this country was built by immigrants.”
Dammit, I heard you the first five thousand times you said that. The problem with that statement is, we’re not talking about immigrants – this discussion is about ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FOOL. And just to solidify my point, I haven’t talked to a legal immigrant yet that thinks it is "jive alright" for illegals to just hop over the border and then start cooking at the IHOP.
Let’s just be honest for once in our menial little lives. We know this issue stems from the White man’s greed and his need for the indentured servitude of the Latinos who scurry across the border, (mostly from Mexico, El Salvador and Guatemala). Basically, the White man needs a new ni66a. Nevertheless, for those illegal immigrants and their supporters to now claim that they have a right to commit unlawful acts because California, Texas, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado and New Mexico were once considered Mexican territory is not necessarily a valid argument.
Well howdy partner, why don’t you just slow ya roll for a second there. In 1848, Mexicans signed the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in exchange for about 18 million dollars. That transaction gave the US control of all of the states mentioned above. Of course history is usually written in “white man person,” so what probably happened is that the Mexicans had to sell out in order to keep the rest of their land. Maybe it was a fuc*ed up situation, but at least they got paid for it. Hell, what did we get? Moreover, the territories that were taken by the US or sold by the Mexicans, (however you want to look at it) were not the property of “Mexicans” to begin with. That property belonged to the indigenous people of the lands who were basically obliterated by the Spanish and the rest of the Pilgrim invaders. Nevertheless, the true residents of the Mexican territories in question were not the people who we saw marching on May 1st. The true people of the Mexican territories that the Spanish Mexicans sold out at the end of the Mexican-American war were the Paiute, Shoshoni, Hopi, Pima, Yaqui, Tepehuan, Rara'muri (Tarahumara), Kiowas and Mayosare among others. If America is gonna give some free citizenship to somebody, start with them, if there are any of them left. In other words, if you can sho-show me that you’re part Shoshoni, then maybe your ass can stay. (Note: the people with the casinos are NOT Mexicans.)

A friend of mine came to me the other day and told me her story. She is a legal immigrant from South America who is getting married in a few months and her future husband lives in the United States illegally. She said that even if she marries him, the marriage will still not give him legal residency because he smuggled himself in. This guy works hard, pays taxes with a taxpayer ID number, but he can’t get a driver’s license because he snuck across the border. I really feel bad for both of them. She is my friend and I want to see her happy, but I had to tell her that I don’t agree that he should be able to come and commandeer citizenship. Her story is the story of many of the people who are rallying, but I had to be real with her. Are these stories sad and unfortunate? Yes. Does it change my mind? No. Although another story gets a lot less coverage, the Black people of Darfur are being starved and murdered in their villages on a daily basis, and they can’t just walk over here and start working in the fish market to feed their families. They just die.
I won’t dare lie and say that I don’t feel for all people who live in deplorable conditions. The people of Honduras, Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Columbia and other places are extremely poor, but so are the people of Haiti who are Black and are turned back when they try to enter the great American dream. Why is one group allowed to break the law and another group told to go back home and suck it up? Is that fair? What would happen if a million Haitians marched through downtown Los Angeles? They would probably be rounded up and held as enemy combatants by the Department of Homeland Security.
This is all a crock of caca and folks had better realize it. If you look at the open borders closer, you will find that if the US government really wanted to keep people out, they would make it harder to come in. But they don’t. They don't have the National Guard on the case. There's no Army of one protecting this land. Well technically, there's probably one guy from border patrol being paid to watch the whole damn border while the Marines are over stealing oil from Iraq. Why? Think about it! They want a new nigga because you old niggas got out of control. Some of you got uppity and turned into Negroes while an even smaller, but smarter population of you even climbed the intelligence stairway and found yourselves turning into Black people. Who knew?
