14th Amendment in Question...
I am sitting here laughing at all the responses I have read related to this new Republican initiative. I am surprised that the Republicans – THE REPUBLICANS – are tossing this around. These are the same men who have for years rebuked any talk of changing the constitution. They have presented what they believe to be legitimate arguments against ‘messing’ with the constitution for decades.
Question: Are black people considered ‘whole humans’ in the constitution? What are we ¼ human? Has a change been made to that?
Okay…These men are hypocrites. Their forefathers interjected the 14th Amendment so that THEIR family members could come to the land of the Native Americans – and flourish. They have used the 14th to their benefit for years – but now the off-springs of slave masters want to a change to be made. Why?
Let’s be honest and CLEAR if these people coming to the United States - then popping out babies just so that their off-springs can receive citizenship were mostly WHITE there would not be an issue. I hope the white people reading will at least consider that…PLEASE.
For the record, I have strong opinions about illegal immigration. They have been forged without emotion. They have been established without the minutia that does not matter.
One thing about most black people. We do respect the representation of the law. Just don’t like it! With that I believe something should be done about people BREAKING the law. Not sure what exactly – but I do like the steps taken when Haitian illegals are captured: The Forces that Be send their black asses back! So, why not do this across the board? For everyone?
I saw the lady (above picture) – and thought: ‘she is more than likely here illegally.’ Then I thought about the child in her arms and the little one by her side AND the life in her belly…My conclusion: I really do not like that people get here illegally and then they go and have kid after kid. Just does not sit well with me. Complex. And, believe me I perfectly understand the other side of this issue…I am black. I know what it feels like to be not wanted. To want a better life. I have seen the struggle within the boarders of the US and overseas. Getting here is a strong pull. A desire created off a Promise. Too bad the Promise becomes a Nightmare for so many.
