OMG another one:
The jobs taken by illegal aliens IS NOT related to unemployement rates. And that rate has been the same for blacks, since they became free from slavery (in the past was lower i believe).
Look at this, if they do not employ illegal aliens, the farm insdustry will be established in x developing country and get a cheaper labor. Just like the IMB and microsoft, they are established in india. It is the same $hit. You wont have that picking fruit job. They did it in the past, and if they cannot find someone to do the labor in here, they will go elsewhere. Examples are fruits and factories. From Where do you think your latex come? Your grapes? Your bananas? Even your clothes? Where do you think your computer was built? If they close all the farms that employ illegal immigrants, they will go ELSEWHERE just like in the past, where all the latin american countries were full of american farms. So in other words, you will still be waiting for that picking fruit job that you want so much.
I learned in college that a white american has 50% more chance of getting a job than a black american, even when they both have the same education and experience. And job in the service area are only given to a person with a LEGAL status, and all are paid the same. example housekeeping. I used to live in Orlando, and the hotels paid the same amount to hispanics, blacks and whites (i did not saw that many whites working there) 9$ per hour (its not so bad when you get a lot of tips). And i dont think that an illegal person can get the same job you guys can, like in a corporation, a normal store, etc. So you are talking about a "decent job" that do not even apply to african americans, because they are stereotyped too. Do not blame another ethnicity when the problem is deeper and MUCH longer than that. Just read a book about african american history and you will see. You guys never had any oportunity like a white person, a native american NEVER had any opportunity at all, starting with no jobs at the reservations, the highest unemployemnt rate, they cannot even go to college bcz their parents cannot pay for it...Plz do not become blind and read read read, inform yourself. You guys fighted so much in the 60's for your rights...but look at you, you are doing the same thing that the whites did in the 40's-60's, talking without knowing the real problem, just saying what you heard from someone that dont even know what is talking about, or being mislead by the media (a good example is the iraq war)
all i'm saying is BACKED by my EDUCATION...things that i learned and i'm learning @ COLLEGE.
