Why are anti-illegal immigration people so racist?
How can people be so racist? Look at these comments. I know this is a lot to read, but just read a few:
Mario Obledo (former California secretary of health and welfare and co-founder of Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund: “We’re going to take over all the political institutions of California. California is going to be a Hispanic state and anyone who doesn’t like it should leave. If they [Anglos] don’t like Mexicans, they ought to go back to Europe.” [interviewed on radio station KIEV, Los Angeles, June 17, 1998.]
Augustin Cebada (Head of the Brown Berets, a Hispanic activist organization at a July 4, 1996 rally) — “We’re here today to show L.A., show the minority people here, the Anglo-Saxons, that we are here, the majority, we’re here to stay. We do the work in this city, we take care of the spoiled brat children … we are the majority here and we are not going to be pushed around.”
Augustin Cebada “Go back to Simi Valley, you skunks! Go back to Woodland Hills! Go back to Boston! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people, it is your duty to die …” [Quoted in Barbara Coe, Reconquista, The Takeover of America, California Coalition for Immigration Reform, 1998, p. 20.]
Mario Obledo — (1998 Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient and former head of Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund — MALDEF) “California is going to be a Mexican state, we are going to control all the institutions. If people don’t like it they should leave.” [Tom Leykis Radio Show, June 7, 1998.]
Art Torres (former chairman, California Democratic Party) — “Remember, [Proposition] 187 [the measure to cut public benefits to illegal aliens] is the last gasp of white America.” [The Social Contact, Summer 1998, p. 290.]
On May 14th in Baldwin Park, 50 patriotic Americans were greeted by 500 rabid anti-American socialists, anarchists, Brown Berets, and Mechistas.
Numerous times we were told that this land is Mexico and that they were taking it back. Numerous times racists epithets were screamed our way. One person even hurled a full water bottle at our side and sent one of our activists to the hospital with bleeding in the brain.
There are ethnic cleansing zones in Lost Angeles where blacks cannot enter without fear of assassination. The brown on black gang violence has long since escalated to direct racial attacks regardless of gang affiliation. The attacks are in the prisons, in the schools, and on the streets. There is a prevalent wave of racism against black and European Americans in the ranks of the illegal aliens, especially in their gangs, and this racism and violence has very deadly consequences for Americans. The Latino gang hasn't hidden the fact that it targets African-Americans in this community, which just two years ago earned the prestigious All-AmericaCity designation, largely due to its racial diversity.

Ooops, sorry! These comments weren't made by anti-illegal immigration people. They were made by illegal alien supporters. Some of these comments were made by elected officials! Now tell me, who're the racists here?

You don't have to tell me. I LIVE in L.A. and have been harassed endlessly for having the nerve to be a Caucasian in "El Norte". People who don't live in CA, AZ, NV, NM or TX shouldn't even get to have an opinion on illegal migration because they don't know how bad it really is. Nothing is more annoying to those of us living under siege than to hear some ivory tower idiot in DC drone on about a path to citizenship. Most illegals don't want US citizenship. They just want all the US citizens to leave the Southwest.Source(s): KPFK

What about ILLEGAL is it so hard to understand? There is no such thing as an "illegal immigrant" because immigrants come here LEGALLY. Illegal aliens are criminals because they are breaking our laws, sponging off the taxpayer, DEMANDING rights they don't have, hurting our school since teachers have to spend more time with the non-English speaking kids, destroy our ERs since they can't afford to stay open any longer, etc.... Now was anything I said "racists?" No! Every FACT I mention had to do with the ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL. I don't care if they are white, brown, black, or purple. If they are ILLEGAL they shouldn't be here. To "confused" -- you are confused. You said that it is hard not to have sympathy for the illegals. Sorry, I have no sympathy for someone that breaks our laws. They should be deported and/or jailed. Employers who hire these criminals should be jailed. Sorry, no sympathy here! And that's not a racist comment!!!

first at all none of this people represent every hispanic in the country , second at all those comments are from 1998 right when pit wilson was implementing 187 , and in case you don't remember California today is a democrat state despise having Schwarzenegger as governor whom by the way believes 187 was an evil plan . so yeah those comments were wrong but they were just a reaction from all the evil extremism from people like pit wilson whom most people in California today hate .
btw i can show you worst which is way more recent than any of what you presented in your "question" , however i have to wonder if you would even be able to see all the hate from many of the typical anti-immigrant racists .
<<<< so yeah why is he that way ?

I think it is because of the lack of controlling the border, illegal protests, disrespect for Americans by illegals, taking advantage of our hospitals and medical institutions, placing their children in our schools slowing down education, taking American jobs, keeping down wages, moving multiple families into single family residential areas, and trying to dictate what our laws are and should be, claiming they have their rights under our Constitution. Just to name a few! We should get rid of them all.

I'm against illegal immigration, but I'm not racist. I'm just tired of my tax dollars going to illegals who don't pay taxes, paraded around with their Mexican flags, forcing us to learn spanish in order to work in America, getting free tuition for college, crimes, May day parades, and having their babies here at our expense (and charging us about our 14th amendment). I'm not racist......I'm just an angry American who was born here.Source(s): First amendment

Okay its not like every latino supports them. I don't support them, never even heard of them to be honest. However, you have nazi's in Arizona saying the same things about latinos, even the legal ones. How about we get together and fight racism?

So what new? They been saying this since we kicked their a$$ at the san jacinto battle grounds.Mexico said they want their part of mexico(Texas) back and they will probably get without firing a shot.
- JoyfulNoiseLv 69 years ago
And they call us racists for not wanting illegals here. All the time they want illegals here to fulfill their own racist agenda.
