Black Americans Should Not Support Illegal Aliens’ False Civil Rights Claims by Kevin Fobbs
This isn’t the first time some folks who were not brought against their will and without the 'open and obvious' ability to group them by their skin color to systematically deny their rights tried to pin its 'civil rights' entitlement to the coattails of the black struggle for civil rights in the hope that leaders like Rev. Jesse Jackson and millions of black Americans would fall for the rouse. Recently it was gay Americans who claimed several years ago that their struggle was the same as Americans of African decent. It didn’t work.....Now comes another group attempting to attach its claims to black civil rights struggles. The illegal alien movement wants to claim that the 14th Amendment protections apply to them and more importantly to the estimated 600,000 anchor babies in our nation that are incorrectly eventually given full citizenship status. What is disturbing is that the illegal alien agenda is not a civil rights agenda. The illegal alien agenda attempts to equate evading our border patrols to deserving a civil rights badge of martyrdom. Now 12 to 20 million illegal aliens who for 25 years have simply walked across, swam across, or were driven under cover of darkness across our nation’s border feel they have endured the same comparable experience to the countless harrowing 'Underground Railroad' trips made by Harriett Tubman or Sojourner Truth through slave states to convey slaves to freedom. Of course there is no logical comparison, but there are some black leaders who attempt to make a connection and in their effort are failing black people when they cheapen their worth. This open support and advocacy for illegal alien rallies which demand more and more American resources, more boycotts, more walkouts…at the expense of far too many black Americans who struggle daily for jobs, decent education and housing is wrong… wrong…wrong!"
